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 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…
