The rapid rise in speed and scale of digitization initiatives and footprint, along with the massive surge in the levels of data, has resulted in an increased expansion of attack surfaces across an organization. Legacy security mechanisms, siloed security tools, and perimeter controls are ineffective in reducing the threats facing the digitized business landscape.
The hyper-networked business world of Blockchains, IoTs, and Cloud are also facing an exponential rise in enterprise and consumer data privacy concerns. Sophisticated threats are hard to pin down, and you need a service having the right mix of expertise and technology to detect threats across the business ecosystem proactively.
With the spread in advanced persistent risks, security uncertainties, and the need to meet stringent regulatory requirements, there is a critical need to monitor systems and assets in real-time continuously and respond quickly through auto containment measures.
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services can enable you to predict, monitor, detect, and quickly respond to sophisticated threats in real-time. MDR can help you with a comprehensive 24x7 threat management and incident management lifecycle to maximize proactive threat detection and response capabilities. MDR also leverages SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response) and integrates SIEM capabilities to reduce incident response time.
MDR Service Features
Threat Monitoring: Identify, assess, and protect systems, assets from threats. Use real-time rules for security events to locate attacks and breaches.
Threat Detection: User behavior & attacker analytics to analyze user/attacker behavior, find unknown attackers in the attack chain, apply rules to detect weak user credentials and malicious behavior.
Threat Response: Prioritize incident alerts and execute quick automated containment and purging of threats.
Threat Intelligence: Leverage real time threat data feed of malicious IP’s and URL’s for ingestion and analysis, and map assets to mitigate risks.
Threat Hunting: Proactive threat hunting with strategic feeds, hypothesis management strategy, reporting & auto-remediation with SIEM integration.
Threat Deception: Decoy strategy implementation through files, network users and endpoints to prevent attackers from permeating deep into networks.
Threat Remediation: Collate post-incident data and develop reports having remedial measures and implement the remediations.
MDR Security Analytics
MDR ensures 24/7 monitoring of your entire business ecosystem to gain 360-degree visibility of your security stature. It is a collective effort of human expertise and technology capabilities to provide a robust layer of threat detection, response, and incident management. MDR also empowers you to continuously improve your security protocols and governance models to take on advanced persistent threats by leveraging security analytics.
The analytics feature of MDR analyzes vast volumes of dissimilar data across business functions, including digital platforms such as IoT and Cloud, to detect threats. The types of data ingested include real-time alert notifications and feeds from different layers of technology infrastructure such as endpoints, desktops, laptops, server logs, data centers, intelligence feeds from third party sources, network traffic, endpoints, firewalls, and other IT security apps.
Security analytics can also correlate multiple sources of varied data, such as chronological and real-time data across locations, to detect and analyze threats. Analytics tools can also automate event correlations from data and identify risk patterns, user behaviors, unusual activity aberrations, recognize data vulnerabilities, and privacy concerns.
Security analytics can help you to:
- Track aberrant user behavior and patterns, including any unusual deviations in application performance, and to detect irregularities.
- Analyze network traffic of users and apps through flow data analysis, packet capture analysis, forensics, and metadata analysis.
- Centralize and integrate data gathering, data analysis and automate threat response through SOAR capabilities.
- Examine historical or present attacks, recognize ways on how systems and apps got compromised, and pinpoint any vulnerabilities by using forensic tools.
Security analytics can help you ingest and analyze large volumes of data from across the network to detect complex threats. This can accelerate detection and response reducing the damage caused by a breach. You can also quickly adhere to stringent security compliance needs by adopting auditing and forensics abilities of security analytics.
Adopt MDR, Strengthen Your Security Posture
Traditional security frameworks fall short in identifying hidden attacks within networks. MDR along with is highly potent security analytics capabilities can help you meet strategic security goals by leveraging intelligent insights from multiple security events and data sources to prevent breaches. You can also ensure faster detection and remediation of threats, bring in real time 360-degree visibility, explore root causes of attacks and even track insider threats.
