Features of Security Monitoring

  • Case management: Case management is grouping signals of similar context and background into a case so that investigations are streamlined, provides proactive incident response, and facilitate process compliance, making it easier to close more security alerts in less time. 
  • Connected Graph: This is a rule based correlation, on-demand outlier detection and anomaly model along with automated analysis through graph analytics and threat intelligence. A detailed understanding of every signal raised and at the same place, visualize and diagnose all the connected anomalies and compromises that happened, a summary of all the observations are generated.
  • MITRE ATT&CK® : A globally-accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. 
  • Monitor  Threat Signals:  Signal is an individual event that would be indicating any suspicious or malicious event, but by itself it is not an incident. 
  • Signal Suppression Rules: This allows you to suppress signals that are triggered by known sources and activities in your organization. 
  • Investigate Anywhere: Allows you to dig deep into security event logs and investigate incidents faster. 
  • Signal Context : This helps you understand all the multiple entities that are related to the suspect or target entity. 
  • Entity Behavior Analytics: EBA identifies any suspicious behavior by tracking user behavior and raises an alert on every instance of a violation.
