Sift Security Receives Application Certification from ServiceNow

It comes as no surprise that security operation centers (SOC) are becoming commonplace inside an IT department. These centers allow analysts to respond to security incidents, threats, and events throughout their networks. Maintaining a SOC can be a monumental task. Although the finer points of SOC deployment are very much network-specific, there are several major components that every organization must include: people, process, and technology.
Sift Security provides innovation around the technology and tools used for analyzing and responding to threats. Sift Security's next generation security operations platform supercharges threat hunting and incident response, by providing a scalable graph database that correlates high volumes of diverse data sources, removing the manual burden from your team.

Bridging The Gap between Security and IT

Solving technology pain points is just part of the challenge of running an efficient SOC. Once an incident is investigated, an SOC analyst’s job is to create a report documenting their findings, then follow IT process for the report to be tracked and resolved through the network and organization. ServiceNow provides the ticketing platform for handling incident response reports between security and IT. The ServiceNow ticketing platform provides visibility and accountability in the process and workflow during such tasks, and is a critical platform for tracking such security reports in this workflow.
To bridge the gap between security reports generated within Sift Security’s threat hunting platform and IT, Sift Security has partnered with ServiceNow to integrate ServiceNow’s ticketing solution within the Sift Security Threat Hunting platform (see screen shot below).

Sift Security’s integration with ServiceNow enables better coordination and faster response to incidents. With this integration, you will be able to create tickets in ServiceNow from the Collaborate tab in Sift Security. A typical use case would include a SOC analyst using Sift Security to investigate an alert, after which they create a quick summary report of their findings, and then use the ServiceNow integration to open a ticket to initiate any actions that are required. This integration supports cross-launch capability from Sift Security into ServiceNow (to view and edit a ticket) and vice versa (to review or continue an investigation in Sift Security).

Sift Joins Netskope, the Cloud Security Leader

Four years ago, we started Sift with the mission of simplifying security operations and incident response for the public cloud. In that time, we have assembled a fantastic team, created an innovative cloud detection and response solution, and have worked with many market-leading customers. I’m delighted to share that we’ve taken yet another step forward — as announced today, Sift is now officially part of Netskope. You can read more about this on Netskope CEO Sanjay Beri’s blog or in the official announcement on the Netskope website.
For our customers, investors, partners, and team, this is an exciting new chapter. Let me tell you why we’re so excited.  Since the beginning, Netskope has had an unmatched vision for the cloud security market. Having started in 2012, they initially focused on SaaS security and quickly followed that with IaaS security capabilities. Six years later, they are now more than 500 employees strong and used by a quarter of the Fortune 100. They are a leader in …

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…

Using the Security Event Graph to Drive Alert Prioritization

One of the biggest differentiators at Sift Security is our security event graph: We map security events into a graph database. We then analyze the graph structure to prioritize alerts. Specifically, we look for clusters of interrelated alerts, score the clusters, and surface the clusters to the analyst. The analyst can then investigate each cluster in order, quickly assessing the threat and resolving the alerts in bulk.  
Our algorithms do the important work of sifting through isolated alerts and separating the false alarms and low priority alerts from high priority security incidents. We identify the high priority incidents by analyzing how alerts are related to each other. Key to this approach is our security event graph. This graph is stored in a graph database, a relationship-centric database that enables rapid execution of complex queries that would be very expensive to make in a traditional RDBMS.  The graph structure enables us to rapidly traverse relationships and find interr…
