The neverending cybersecurity arms race

Nobody questions whether cybersecurity’s relevance has skyrocketed in recent years. The frequency of attacks and the amount of damage attacks can inflict have both risen exponentially. Across all industries, big and small companies are scattering for solutions to protect their highly sensitive information from these new threats.

This has forced cybersecurity experts around the world to play a freshly dealt hand: cybersecurity risks are at an all time high, and they have potential to cause more damage than ever before. Regarding which industry you work in, the attacks can be indiscriminate. Nobody is safe. This has given a rise to innovative solutions to curb or outright stop attacks dead in their tracks.

Here are some observations we have seen thus far in 2017:

The next generational shift in enterprise infrastructure has arrived

To sustain market leadership, SORs must embrace creative disruption. This means developing an SOI tier, decoupling it from the SOR for cross-platform intelligence and embracing an open platform architecture for application developers to build on top of the SOI as a marketplace. Splunk’s Splunkbase is a microcosm of this concept, and serverless will make this economically feasible for companies at a variety of stages in their life cycle.

Last but not least, systems of engagement (SOE) are the consumers leveraging the SOI tier to build applications for security analysts. SOAR startups like Siemplify are currently receiving attention for defining workflows automation to meet the challenges of modern security operations.

How Cyber Security is Changing in 2017

A new Forrester report from top cybersecurity analysts reported that companies such as Siemplify, Hexadite, and Cybersponse are promoting industry shifting philosophies. They operate on this sort of premise: with an increased frequency of attacks and their intricacy, it is nearly impossible to gauge the actual threat being posed by each alert that comes through your system. You simply do not have the resources, or as mentioned earlier, the workforce, to adequately scrub through each alert coming across your desk. It takes a new kind of outlook to be able to tackle the issue at hand, and the answer is not so black and white. The only good solution is one that takes all the good from each cybersecurity defense tactic and combining it into one, or better known as orchestration.

Siemplify Finds Many Organizations Forced to Ignore Alerts

oint research with Enterprise Security Group reveals security leaders’ top challenges and their broader implications for security operations

NEW YORK– (BUSINESS WIRE)–Siemplify™, the leader in security orchestration and incident response, today announced the release of a new Enterprise Security Group (ESG) Research Report. In early 2017, ESG and Siemplify launched a joint research effort to better understand the complex challenges and priorities that security operations leaders are navigating this year.

Surveying 150 cybersecurity professionals across a variety of verticals, the extensive study sheds new light on the growing needs of security operations. Though organizations have spent resources on and deployed more detection systems, there is now a developing need to shift their focus to achieving efficient and rapid response times, making it clear that manual and unstructured triage and response processes are one of the main factors hampering efficient response. Organizations were furthermore overwhelmed by the amount of security alert data and also struggle with the cybersecurity industry’s ongoing staff and skill shortage.

Siemplify Emerges From Stealth Mode with Security Operations Platform

Transforming the way enterprises perform cyberthreat analysis, Siemplify emerged from stealth mode today with the first security operations platform to employ the same advanced cybersecurity methodologies used by leading military intelligence organizations.

The Siemplify Threat Analysis Platform automatically correlates security alerts, identifies and prioritizes incidents, and graphically depicts the complete threat chain, setting new standards for time-to-insight and time-to-remediate. The platform acts as a central hub linking an organization’s existing security, threat intelligence and risk management tools, including Splunk and popular SIEMs, effectively improving the return on those investments.

According to a study conducted by HP and the Ponemon Institute, companies need an average of 46 days to resolve a cyberattack. “The problem is not detection per se but discerning the threats hidden in the noise of thousands of alerts generated by the disparate security monitoring systems,” said Amos Stern, CEO and co-founder of Siemplify. “This makes it impossible to see the broader attack chain and identify root cause quickly.”

Siemplify exits stealth with a console for tracking cyberthreats

With millions of cyberattacks being launched against the private sector every day, enterprises can no longer afford to wait weeks for their security teams to manually track down every breach. The latest startup to take a shot at speeding detection times is Siemplify Ltd., which came out of stealth mode today with a threat analysis platform that uses an organization’s existing network monitoring mechanisms in order to identify data leaks.

The software can interface with everything from traditional all-in-one security tracking suites to more modern software like Splunk Inc.’s popular namesake platform for aggregating operational logs. After everything is properly integrated, the records from the different systems are streamed into a centralized repository and correlated to uncover patterns that may not emerge when each data source is examined individually. The approach makes it possible to determine the full scope of an attack and weed out false positives in the process.

Siemplify’s platform displays the filtered results in a graphical interface
The interface provides modelling tools for getting to the root of the breach. The functionality enables security professionals to switch among data sources in order to examine the attack from different angles and assemble the pieces into a timeline that can be traced back to the initial network compromise. The startup says that carrying out the analysis visually is much more straightforward than working directly with the raw information, and therefore faster as well.

The end-result is that hackers have less time to snoop around inside an organization’s systems after they’ve broken through its defenses. That value proposition has helped Siemplify attract $4 million from half a dozen high-profile investors including Intel Corp. corporate strategy boss Tom Kilroy, as well as several major customers in its home country of Israel. The startup says that multiple Fortune 50 companies are also piloting its platform, which could lead to big contracts further down the line.

Siemplify’s tech is designed to contextualise threat alerts from the disparate array of security technologies on enterprise networks (anti-malware, intrusion detection systems, firewalls and more). Its platform acts as a central hub linking an organisation’s existing security, threat intelligence and risk management tools, including Splunk and other popular (security information and event management systems) SIEMs, before consolidating and correlating alerts.
