Suffering from Alert Fatigue?

Many enterprises rely on security information and event management (SIEM) solutions to help detect suspicious activity on their networks. However, despite SIEM’s attempts to dedup, contextualize, and correlate thousands to millions of alerts on a daily basis, many organizations find themselves drowning in irrelevant and/or false positive data, increasing the likelihood that a real threat will be missed – wreaking havoc on your systems and reputation.

This visibility to, and fast focus on, what is actually a real threat is a challenge for all security teams – whether a small team with no SOC, a large enterprise with a SOC, or an MSSP that oversees many customers with a SOC.  

INFOCYTE HUNT PROVIDES RELIEF

What's needed is a triage process to investigate alerts and determine which alerts can truly be ignored and which are actionable threats that need escalation. Infocyte HUNT provides ground truth – enabling security staff to vet alerts captured by your SIEM and prevent wasted time on innocuous alerts and/or false positives. Unlike SIEM alerts that are often correlated from two or more secondary or tertiary security product alerts that often lead to erroneous conclusions, Infocyte HUNT surveys endpoint using Forensic State Analysis (FSA) techniques to look for irrefutable evidence of malware that has successfully bypassed traditional defenses. 

Infocyte HUNT provides a scalable and integrated endpoint interrogation solution to validate alerts by looking at the compromise state of endpoints. The Infocyte platform uses dissolvable agents to independently collect, identify and evaluate a variety of data (active processes, in-memory executable codes, auto-runs, execution artifacts, OS subversion, API hooks, abnormal configurations, disabled controls and more), then analyzes the data using forensic analytics and file intelligence services. This Forensics State Analysis (FSA) based approach, also analyzes OS and application persistence mechanisms – which can trigger the execution of code or executables. This provides a far deeper, and more conclusive, examination of an endpoint’s state to let you know if the alert is in fact real.  

Benefits

  • Triages alerts to weed out false positives and quickly identify which to escalate.

  • Reduces the time and resources needed to manually comb through volumes of false and low priority alerts.

  • Allows your security team to focus on remediating real threats.

  • Leverages your existing security investments.
