Security Incident Response
Responding to security alerts quickly and accurately is essential to ensuring that attacks don't turn into major security breaches.
Typically, a large proportion of the alerts that security teams receive every day never get investigated. The reason is that security teams are overwhelmed by the volume of alerts and there's not enough time to properly investigate them all. So they try as best they can to triage the alerts so they can focus on the most important ones first. The problem is, it's often the smaller, less important looking alerts that later turn out to have been the start of a major intrusion.
Definitive, Packet-Level Evidence for Investigations
The biggest challenge in reconstructing a security event is collecting and collating evidence from multiple sources - log files, authentication records, NetFlow metadata and other sources.
Recording packet-level Network History, using continuous packet capture, gives analysts access to a definitive source of evidence about what has taken place on the network.
With access to this Network History, analysts can quickly triage alerts to determine whether an event is a serious threat requiring urgent attention, or perhaps a false positive that can be attended to later.
Streamlining Incident Response
Typically an incident investigation starts with an alert from a security monitoring tool such as an Intrusion Detection System, Firewall, or AI-based application.
The key to rapid response is being able to quickly and accurately determine what happened so you can understand the severity of the incident, and how to respond to it.
EndaceProbe™ Analytics Platforms provide a powerful API that allows the Network History they record to be integrated into your security monitoring tools.
This integration lets analysts click on an alert to go directly to the detailed, packet-level Network History that relates to that alert, allowing them to instantly see precisely what took place. The API can provide integration with open-source or custom tools, or a range of security tools from our Fusion partners.
The Fusion Partner Program brings together solutions from leading security and performance analytics vendors who leverage the EndaceProbe's Application Dock hosting and workflow API to integrate Network History into their applications.
