Cyber security is now a board level problem. Security teams have changed their approach from focusing on preventing a breach to now expecting a breach. This should also shift your defense strategy to focus on rapid detection and response vs. building up walls at the perimeter. Protecting the perimeter is still important (ex: firewalls, proxy solutions, etc.), but it is no longer the only defense as today's perimeter is very different from yesterday's. More focus now needs to be on your east west corridor in order to align with today's prevalent hacking methods as almost every attack is "zero day". You need to be able to be aware of an attack, limit the dwell time, and ultimately limit your exposure; or worse critical data loss.
Cloud Ingenuity is focused on partnering with your team to understand the maturity of your security program, and then working with you on how to solidify and secure your critical business assets in order to protect your brand, your IP, your customers, and your employees. We start by reviewing what you have today, building a plan to get more from your current investments, and then focus on filling gaps and potential new solutions. This leads to driving improved security maturity and consolidation of your security spend.
SIEM started out as a great vision, but almost every CISO we have spoken with have the same problem; too much data, not enough resources, and the fear of missing important security incident data that could have prevented impact. Reality is SIEM is nothing more than a data lake, and your success in data lake was always determined by the power and efficacy of your analytics. There is a better way!
Imagine if you could take Facebook and overlay it on top of your SIEM data. It would be easy to use, and with power analytics like Facebook; it would be a powerful combination. Even more powerful is that this solution can be your log consolidation solution + your powerful analytics, or you can keep your current investment in log consolidation and overlay this solution for powerful analytics.
Cloud Ingenuity is here to help with this modern approach to SIEM, and here to help you execute on successful installation paired with the training required to get your analysts armed for proactive threat-hunting. The end result will modernization your SOC maturity, drive improved productivity, and yield a safe experience for your customers and end users.
The explosion of IoT, and the dissolving of the "perimeter" has increased the need for a new way to protect end points in your organization. The days of using Anti-Virus only, and not leveraging machine learning for rapid identification of indicators of compromise are over. You also can not slow down end user productivity by leveraging too many agents for layered protection any longer on end points as users will revolt, and their PC or laptop will becoming nothing more than a paper weight.
Cloud Ingenuity believes in working with our customers to consolidate your end point strategy leading to improved end user experience, and yielding a more secure workforce. We will work to understand your environment, your user's needs, and help you create a strategy for transforming your approach to end point security. We helped customers consolidate agents while improving their overall end user security.
We are often asked by CISO's, "What am I missing if I am using a logging solution and I'm covering my end points?"
The Answer - everything else that resides on your network that is not being logged, or everywhere you do not have an agent.
Strategically we recommend that your planning includes determining where to get coverage with logs, where to put agents, and where to leverage the network (ex: passively covering database vs. leveraging an agent is a common approach). This is also a good strategy considering how many new attacks involve erasing logs and covering an attackers tracks in order to be stealth. The network does not lie and can not be avoided in terms of an attacker trying to perform reconnaissance and eventually trying to perform data exfiltration. Your network will show the signs of this behavior if you leverage the power of machine learning to proactively watch all your network traffic and protocols.
Cloud Ingenuity can help you to devise a strategy to drive security maturity with your approach to UEBA, EDR, and NDR. We have experience with creating a project plan, executing on tool selection based on your specific needs, and then partnering with you on operationalization.
