Enterprise IT security professionals believe that human expertise will always play a key role in detecting and stopping security threats.
That’s just one of the findings from a survey we conducted of security analysts, CISOs, infosecurity experts, and security engineers at this year’s RSA global information security conference in San Francisco in April. The US RSA conference, being one of the largest gatherings of security experts in the world, provides an excellent occasion for sampling the views of IT security professionals about the state of their art.
And what did IT security professionals tell us?
Empowering SecOps teams with effective threat hunting tools is critical. The average data breach goes 206 days before being detected. That’s 206 days for an attack to spread through a network, infect multiple systems, and possibly exfiltrate critical data such as customer records, financial data, intellectual property, and login credentials.
Intelligent Automation that Combines Human Expertise with Advanced Analytics
Enterprises need a faster, more efficient way to analyze alerts and engage in proactive threat hunting.
That’s what we’re offering with our LogicHub platform.
The LogicHub Intelligent Security Automation platform automates threat hunting techniques like scoring, clustering, correlation, and mapping—in effect creating a digital map of a security analyst’s mind. The heart of the platform is the Threat Ranking Engine, which uses context–including context provided by security analysts–to enrich threat data. Using this enriched data, the platforms reduces billions of security events through scoring and classification to triage all threats for rapid resolution, dramatically lowering both false negative and false positive rates.
In line with the RSA survey responses, the LogicHub platform also provides an intuitive feedback mechanism that enables security analysts to apply their expertise to refine the platform’s performance. Unique in the security market, the LogicHub platforms gives SecOps teams the best of both worlds: human expertise along with the power of cognitive automation.
The results address the major concerns raised in the survey.
