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).

Data Exfiltration from AWS S3 Buckets

You will have no doubt heard by now about the recent Booz Allen Hamilton breach that took place on Amazon Web Services – in short, a shocking collection of 60,000 government sensitive files were left on a public S3 bucket (file storage in Amazon Web Services) for all to see. We are all probably too overwhelmed to care, given all the recent breaches we have been hearing about in the news. But with this breach it was different, it involved a trusted and appointed contractor whose job it was to follow security policies, put in place to avoid such incidents. So was this incident accidental or malicious? More, later about the tools we can use to tell the difference between the two. First, lets recap what happened.The IncidentAccording to Gizmodo, the 28GB of data that was leaked not only contained sensitive information on recent government projects, but at least a half dozen unencrypted passwords belonging to government contractors with Top Secret Clearance – meaning anyone who got their h…

Integration with Amazon GuardDuty

What is Amazon GuardDuty?
Amazon GuardDuty is a continuous security monitoring platform that analyzes and processes VPC flow logs, AWS CloudTrail event logs and DNS logs. It uses threat intelligence feeds, such as lists of malicious IPs and domains to identify malicious activity within your AWS environment.
You can enable the GuardDuty Service through your Amazon Console. Once there, you are then presented with the GuardDuty dashboard, as shown in the example below:














Finding are rated as High, Medium or Low on the dashboard and have the following meaning:  

Highfindingsindicates that the resource in question is compromised and is actively being used for unauthorized purposes.

Medium findings indicates suspicious activity, for example, a large amount of traffic being returned to a remote host that is hiding behind the Tor network.

Low findingsindicates suspicious or malicious activity that was blocked before it compromised your resource.
