Larry D. Johnson, CEOCybercriminals today are no different from organizations, devoting their time and resources exclusively for the discovery of the fastest, easiest, and safest way to crack security systems. Several companies have employed dedicated incident response teams to curb the menace of these constantly evolving, complex cyber threats and ensure the confidentiality and integrity of critical data. In addition, such teams are striving towards making client organizations robust and unperturbed by the impact of cyber attacks as well as resume operations effortlessly even after facing a complex cyber attack. However, threat Incidents are often precursors to many more attacks of high severity and incident response teams, due to time sensitivity and lack of information, struggle to determine if an attack alert is a red flag, notifying a critical incident or just a redundant alert piece of information. Security analysts are usually flooded by thousands of threat alerts across multiple applications out of which only a few can be showstoppers of the high priority-high severity kind. Such threats in the current climate are often more complex to analyze, and incident response team is forced to spend a lot of time manually checking and disseminating data from various sources. The need of the hour is an intelligent threat-detection solution, providing relevant context and alerts for the incident response teams, where even minutes matter. Enter CyberSponse.
Driven by the motive to deliver best-of-breed adaptive security, CyberSponse has carved a niche by engineering its flagship, CyOPs™ SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation and Response) the only patented platform of its kind that allows organizations to integrate enterprise teams, case management, operational processes, and all existing security tools into a single virtual hub. The solution enables enterprises to gain complete visibility and control over multiple cybersecurity data sources and doubles as a highly configurable, holistic incident response management system. This platform allows security analysts to efficiently evaluate threats by automating streams of data from hundreds of enterprise security tools in real-time. Utilizing this platform, analysts can address multiple security alerts, remediate threats, improve operations, and enhance the performance of existing security products. Further, the platform enables cybersecurity analysts to retrieve documented reports of different types of security threats in the form of graphs or charts. Owing to its unique much-needed characteristics, the U.S. Cybercommand has procured CyberSponse for its efficient and robust incident response management strategy and solutions.
By facilitating the performance of all deployed security tools, CyOPs™ SOAR platform streamlines security operations and takes out the alert fatigue out of analysts
"By automating the performance of a SOCs security stack, the CyOPs™ SOAR platform streamlines security operations and relieves analysts from alert fatigue,” says Larry D. Johnson, CEO, CyberSponse. To further elaborate on CyberSponse’s unique capabilities, the industry veteran recollects working with a renowned client company that had insufficient cybersecurity analysts and was struggling to recruit more cybersecurity personnel. Post-deployment of CyOPs™ SOAR platform, the cybersecurity team attended all relevant threat notifications and took the necessary action in real-time.
The most noteworthy advantage of CyberSponse’s “single pane of glass” SOAR platform was that the relatively new cybersecurity recruits didn’t need to train on every new product leveraged by the company since each tool is connected to the holistic solution.
The team was able to quickly respond, and secure their assets to make them less vulnerable. Additionally, the team was able to create customized CyOPs™ dashboards by utilizing CyOPs™ Playbook Builder, without any code. These customized dashboards also enabled the team to monitor security operations KPIs, and Role Based Access Control to consistently check the status of security operations and produce enterprise quality automated reports. In a nutshell, the platform helped in auto-prioritizing alerts, filtering false positive alerts, investigate and resolve escalated incidents as well as track progress with dashboards. CyberSponse delivers its best-in-class solutions and services to customers, including Fortune 500 enterprises and American government agencies such as the Pentagon and the US CyberCommand. Ensuring companies have effective detection methods, alerting Cybersecurity analysts, defining the roles and responsibilities of each member on the incident response team and an active product development lifecycle are key factors amplifying the growth of CyberSponse in the global market.
