Cyber security is one of the most important topics in the business world right now. Luckily for the many business owners living and working in the Corridor, Addison-based Securonix recently had a breakthrough in protecting organizations from cyber threats. The company announced integration of its Next-Gen SIEM platform with Phantom, which is a leader in the Security Automation and Orchestration (SA&O) market. This partnership enables security operations center (SOC) analysts to improve the average time it takes to detect and respond to cyber threats that pose the greatest risks to their organizations.
“We at Securonix are committed to providing the security management industry the means to fully protect themselves from sophisticated hackers and advanced threats,” said Sam Davis, VP of Business Development and Technology Alliances at Securonix in a recent press release. “Our integration with Phantom extends the incident response capabilities of Securonix’s Next-Gen SIEM, enabling customers to automate end-to-end security management with improved threat detection, prioritization and speedy response orchestration.”
In general, there are an overwhelming number of alerts that need to be triaged, analyzed and remediated manually, so security teams are having trouble keeping up. According to Securonix, security solutions need to improve detection rates, reduce false positives and automate the unsophisticated response actions in addition to enhancing and retaining the appropriate context of the alert.
This Next-Gen SIEM uses a Hadoop big data infrastructure stack and data science to determine the cyber attacks with the highest threats to the organization. The SOC analysts then use this Next-Gen SIEM to reduce the number of false alerts they have to address, which allows them to focus on protecting companies against the most critical threats. Because Securonix is integrated with Phantom, customers can use playbooks in Phantom based on threats detected in Next-Gen SIEM.
“We’re pleased to partner with Securonix and believe in the importance of a collaborative, integrated ecosystem to drive detection and response,” said Rich Hlavka, VP of Business Development at Phantom in a recent press release. “By enabling organizations to streamline security operations, Phantom’s innovative technologies for playbook automation and security orchestration complement Securonix in accelerating incident triage and resolution, and maximizing security investments.”
Securonix is a leader in big data security analytics and user and entity behavior analytics. The company uses signature-less anomaly detection techniques to detect data security, insider threat and fraud attacks automatically and accurately.
