Vectra Networks has released an updated real-time detection platform - X-series platform - aimed for insider and targeted threats detection. The updated X-series enables enterprises to identify potentially threatening individuals and hosts, understand details of any anomalous behavior, and perform quick triage and prioritization of incident response to best protect their most important assets.
Vectra, the leader in real-time detection of in-progress cyber attacks, said that the platform also uniquely combines behavioral detections of cyber-attacks and malware with dynamic community threat analysis to instantly display the proximity and impact of a suspect host to an organization’s high-value assets.
Vectra noted that perimeter security is unable to detect insider threats since an insider already has access and doesn’t need to communicate externally for command and control or exfiltration. In addition, insiders may have credentials that allow them to access high-value assets, and may be able to exfiltrate data undetected by carrying it out the door.
The security company added that the current methods of detecting insider and targeted threats such as log monitoring and data leak prevention require manual operation, are often used after a breach has been reported, and require correlation of abnormalities across multiple products. Vectra Networks’ real-time breach detection identifies and analyzes anomalous host connectivity, as well as reconnaissance, lateral movement and unusual data acquisition to provide customers with a single solution to quickly and efficiently identify insider and targeted threat activity.
