Vulnerability Monitoring

The modern threat landscape is complex, with an expanding attack surface across on-premises and cloud assets. Aggressive adversaries target today’s fluid perimeter, emphasizing the need for greater visibility, rapid detection, effective response, and adaptive security that evolves with the changing threat landscape.

In a secure environment, it’s essential for businesses to monitor network traffic, network appliances, and the cybersecurity technology responsible for protecting corporate data and resources. Without monitoring, businesses would be unaware if a security device failed, or cyber-criminals breached protections and began exfiltrating data. Malware would also go undetected making it even more dangerous to leave the environment unmonitored. A Security Operations Center (SOC) and a Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) platform are different strategies for monitoring a network environment, and they work together to help corporations prevent data breaches and alert them to potential ongoing cyber-events.

What should you know
  • The security mindset must shift from “incident response” to “continuous response”, which assumes you will be compromised. No organization is immune. 
  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is the engine that drives any substantial cybersecurity solution. But SIEM can be challenging to deploy, tune, and manage on your own – resulting in unused “shelfware” that wastes time and money and creates security awareness gaps. 
  • Co-Managed SIEM/SOC has risen due to its many advantages: it overcomes staffing challenges, provides 24/7/365 monitoring and alerting, addresses compliance mandates, increases cybersecurity effectiveness, and decreases total cost. 
Benefits of Managed SIEM and SOC
  • Proactive threat detection: Organizations that produce a large amount of data often find it challenging to detect threats. As you can imagine, it’s a very time-consuming process to scan all this data for possible phishing, malware or other cyber-criminal activity. SIEM solutions make it easier to identify malicious activities. And a managed SOC service provider will make sure that possible threats are proactively detected.
  • Security experts monitor your network 24/7: Choosing a managed SOC service provider means that you give a third party full responsibility for your security operations. This has a few important benefits for your organization. First of all, you enjoy the 24/7/365 support of security experts. This costs you a fraction of what it would cost to have around-the-clock in-house monitoring for a SIEM solution. With an MSSP, you have security experts monitoring your network 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
  • More Accurate Threat Detection and Security Alerting. : Detect and identify threats more accurately than would be possible using individual security data streams.
  • Improved Security Data. : Improve the potential for it to be analyzed and used in incident response workflows. This can also result in better visibility over the entire security landscape in the enterprise.
  • Improved Compliance. : Regulations and compliance frameworks such as HIPAA invariably require logging of security data as a key control.
  • Dark Web Monitoring : Cybercrime is a business – and it thrives in the underground. Dark web forums, instant messaging apps and other closed sources are where various “goods” are traded: Leaked information – credentials, financial and personal. From ransomware tools and services, through malware services – all the way to insider recruitment campaigns, deep and dark web monitoring is a must for any enterprise wishing to protect against external threats.

Innovative Logics dark web monitoring solves this in 3 easy steps:

  1. Detect the malware when it is initially offered for sale on the dark web.
  2. Extract the malware hash in the preliminary phase.
  3. Block it on your firewall, trigger playbooks on your SIEM, SOAR, EPP, or VM platforms before anyone else has even downloaded it.
