Leveraging Metadata for a Proactive Defense

Leveraging Metadata for a Proactive Defense

All too often network security professionals are forced into an escalating workflow-an arms race remediating alerts (indicators of attacks) as they come in, instead of proactively hunting for the adversary-who is likely already in your network. Resource and time constraints, as well as a lack of visibility and the right tools, lead to a best effort security posture (doing everything you can to stay above the rising tide of incoming attacks).

Access to network memory-content-enriched metadata pertaining to the traffic flow, network protocols, applications, and content from sensitive points of presence in the network allows the reactionary defenders to become a proactive defense force. Pivoting from a detected malicious event directly into root cause analysis and then broadening the scope to find other possible infected machines allows the security team to become a truly productive lean forward security practice.

This white paper provides an overview of:

  • Ways to accelerate your security team's incident response capability;
  • How to reduce remediation time and cost;
  • An automated application of threat intelligence.
