Sift Security + ServiceNow Security Operations Integration


We are excited to announce a new integration with ServiceNow’s Security Operations platform, which is a leader in security operations and incident response orchestration and automation. ServiceNow Security Operations includes a wealth of valuable context that is invaluable to SOCs in terms of providing the information needed to efficiently triage and respond to alerts. Sift Security's graph visualization integrates seamlessly with ServiceNow and offers a much easier way to interface with the valuable context from ServiceNow, further simplifying and speeding up incident investigations.

Key Features
Sift Security supports the following data types from ServiceNow: Incidents, Threat Intelligence, Vulnerabilities, Organizations, Assets, and Users. Integration points include:
  1. ServiceNow Plug-in - pivot from ServiceNow to Sift Security to investigate a selected incident
  2. Sift Security Risks - view a list of incidents created in ServiceNow, that need to be investigated. Each incident will include related context, which is updated any time an incident is updated.
  3. Sift Security Canvas - view an incident and relevant context in the graph canvas, explore hypotheses by pivoting on entities (for example were other entities affected by this malware).
  4. Incident resolution - Incidents can be resolved in the Risks and Graph sections of Sift Security. Incidents that are resolved in Sift Security will also be resolved in ServiceNow, and vice versa.
  5. Collaborate - Analysts can summarize their findings and create new incidents in ServiceNow Service Management to manage workflow across other organizations such as IT.

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…
