Anomaly Detection White Paper

Anomaly Detection White Paper

We are pleased to release a new Data Science White Paper, focused on our approach to Anomaly Detection. This paper, which is available upon request, picks up where our October 2015 Data Science White Paper left off, describing in detail our approach and the use cases we support.

The paper starts with a motivating example, describing the traces a sophisticated attacker leaves behind and how the traces can be detected. We then describe our algorithms within the context of the example and provide other use cases covered by our approach. We finish with a summary of the strategic advantages of the platform.

Read this paper to learn more about:

  • Our unsupervised anomaly detection approach, including detection of rare events, spikes, and out of context events.
  • Entity level alert roll-ups, which help users prioritize investigations.
  • The specific security use cases we address, which we map to the Lockheed cyber kill chain.
  • The key advantages of our approach and algorithms.

To learn more, get your own copy of the white paper by emailing contact@siftsec.com

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…
