Sift Security Launch!

Sift Security Launch!

We are excited to announce the launch of Sift Security's Threat Hunting and Incident Response Platform.

Our team has been working for more than two years to design the next generation of security operations technology. Our mission is to make it easier and faster for security operations teams to get their jobs done.

We take care of a few major headaches, helping you get to the real work.

  • Gathering data
    With out-of-the-box support for a dozen data sources and a simple tool for incorporating more, we get all the data you need for an investigation in one place, ready for when you need it.

  • Integrating data
    Our relational graph structure enables you to track entities across data types, quickly following a chain of events from the network to endpoints and applications.

  • Evaluating data
    Machine learning algorithms developed at Stanford and MIT help bring the most important events to your attention, so you can focus on what’s strange or new.

Our team enjoyed making the platform, which builds on some of the most exciting and scalable open source technologies out there right now, including Kafka, Spark, ELK and graph databases. We have worked with some great beta customers that helped us hone in on the biggest pain points, and had the satisfaction of hearing those gasps of surprise that happen when something really hard gets easy.

"With Sift Security, in 5 minutes we can complete investigations that previously took days"
Ken Silva, experience at Ionic, Booz Allen, VeriSign and the NSA

"With Sift Security, I can get the context I need quickly and figure out what really caused the problem."
Allen Spiegler, CIO of Los Angeles LGBT Center

"Sift is the first analytical tool that will actually bring value to an organization, allowing them to find that needle in the security haystack of noise."
Larry Whiteside Jr., Former CISO in Healthcare and Energy

Sift Security Tools Release for AWS Monitoring - CloudHunter

We are excited to release CloudHunter, a web service similar to AWS CloudTrail that allows customers to visually explore and investigate their AWS cloud infrastructure.  At Sift, we felt this integration would be important for 2 main reasons:
Investigating events happening in AWS directly from Amazon is painful, unless you know exactly what event you're looking for.There are not many solutions that allow customers to follow chains of events spanning across the on-premises network and AWS on a single screen. At Netflix, we spent a lot of time creating custom tools to address security concerns in our AWS infrastructure because we needed to supplement the AWS logs, and created visualizations based on that data.  The amazing suite of open source tools from Netflix are the solutions they used to resolve their own pain points.  Hosting microservices in the cloud with continuous integration and continuous deployment can be extremely efficient and robust.  However, tracking events, espec…

Sift Security and WannaCry

😢 The WannaCry ransomware attack has left security teams around the world scrambling to make sure they are protected and to assess whether they have been victimized. To protect themselves, organizations need to have visibility into which systems are vulnerable and be able to rapidly roll out patches.  To understand whether they have been targeted, they need visibility into the channels over which the ransomware is distributed.  To understand whether they have been infected, they need visibility into the endpoints.
Over the past weekend, I was bombarded with questions from current customers, potential customers, former colleagues, friends, and family.  Am I vulnerable? How do I protect myself? How do I know if I’ve been hit? What do I do if I’ve been hit? What can you do to help me?
This post focuses primarily on the last question. What can we at Sift Security do to help an organization respond to a massive ransomware attack? I break this down into four categories, visibility, analyt…

Next-Generation SIEMs

Intelligence, Speed, Simplicity, AutomationOverviewMajor network and security trends, including exponentially increasing network traffic, cloud architectures, complex attack surfaces, and advanced adversaries, have created new challenges for security operations in adapting to this changing threat landscape.
Increased Traffic, Hybrid Cloud Architectures, and Sophisticated Adversaries Are Overwhelming SOCs
The Security Operations Center is faced with alert overload, often paralyzed with too much information to filter, prioritize, and act upon. The end result is an inability to find the true risk amongst thousands of alerts every day with the largest of organizations easily facing millions of alerts per day.Incident responders are challenged at finding relevant information or seeing the relationships amongst disparate indicators of compromise that are buried within logs, causing delays in assessing, understanding, and mitigating incidents.T…
