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.

To learn more, see the Sift Security + ServiceNow Integration Data Sheet as well as the demonstration video - click here. Also, we also have more detailed installation and user guides available for our customers upon request (contact@siftsecurity.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…

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…

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…
