Cybersecurity AI and SIEM Security Machine Learning
Cybersecurity AI integrated SIEM Security tools accurately identify and prevent attacks in a fraction of the time and cost humans are capable, using security automation. Companies are struggling to identify and keep up with cybersecurity, internal threats and vulnerabilities in a timely manner, which are mainly due to manual processes and human error. Cybersecurity attacks are increasing at an unprecedented pace and becoming harder to detect. Operating System and software vulnerabilities in end point devices due to patches not being applied are another contributing factor to successful cybersecurity attacks. Many companies are working with limited or overwhelmed staff, and others are lacking in the expertise needed to manage their SIEM Security environment. The ever growing costs of managing all of the above, is only compounding these problems.
SIEM Security with integrated cybersecurity AI is the solution for the bulk of these problems. SIEM Security that uses machine learning and user behavior analytics will address internal threats. SIEM Security with vulnerability scanning and patch management software addresses the remaining issues. Even most industry leading SIEM tools do not have these inherent capabilities needed to automate security tasks. If they did, Security Analysts of almost any skill level would be able to quickly identify cybersecurity threats and uncover suspicious activity in event logs and network traffic flows. In fact, an intelligent SIEM could use cybersecurity AI and machine learning analytics to automate security tasks or simply help accelerate Security Analysts searching and reporting, or trigger an alert.
- WannaCry ransomware attack opened ports to cripple 100,000 companies in 150 countries.
- About 858 new malware signatures were created every hour last year.
- A successful phishing scam can start an organization-wide attack.
- Disgruntle employees proved many times they can wreak massive damage to an organization, especially one with any amount of technical know how.
- Some employees got paid by cybercriminals to install malware on systems that provided access to hundreds of thousands of devices.
Ponemon Institute estimates that security breaches caught in less than 100 days saves the company $1 million dollars. If contained in less than 30 days, another $1 million dollars is saved. Finding that needle amongst the millions of pieces of straws in a timely manner is a huge task without the right tools. If your company is ignoring alerts or turning off notifications altogether, it is probably time to admit you have the wrong tools. Wasting human resources on security tasks that can be automated, provide much faster and accurate results, does not make sense.
Today's cybersecurity criminals are much smarter than your employees, and it's only a matter of time before their persistence finds a way past your defenses. Whether it's a link or attachment in an email or from the web, it is only a matter of time before it happens, or happens again and again. How many highly skilled security analysts do you need to hire to search through all your system, device, application, database and network traffic logs to identify when an employee falls victim to a phishing scam, installed ransomware or malware or provided logon credentials to a hacker? Do you have all the logs you need to investigate all IT assets that were affected? Are the logs parsed correctly so your searches and alerts work correctly? Do your security analysts know all aspects of the breach so the correct targets are investigated? Have the devices and or users been isolated from doing any more damage? Is there a known vulnerability that a software patch could have prevented this exploit? How long did it take them to complete all this?
Cybersecurity is a 24X7X365 day job, and threats are occurring at an alarming rate. If your security analysts cannot quickly and accurately detect and stop cybersecurity attacks using their existing tools… your company should look at SIEM Security tool with integrated cybersecurity AI like QRadar SIEM. If your company is having trouble identifying and applying security patches in a timely manner, your company should look at a Patch Management Software package like BigFix.
