Signatures, behaviors, correlations: What’s the difference for better detection?

There is no question that alert fatigue and staffing shortfalls continue to plague security teams. Nation-state cyber attacks have doubled over three years, and, today, highly organized cyber criminal groups are increasingly backed by nation-states. Even relatively unsophisticated attacks, but with big impact, are on the rise in large part due to the pandemic. 

Security operations teams simply cannot keep up.

— Malicious threats are going undetected and/or uninvestigated.

IronNet has launched an automated threat engine to focus on correlations-based detections, which generate situational detections but with relatively low false positives (compared to standard NDR and signature-based detection). The results? Relevant, timely, and actionable alerts.

Learn more about how IronNet’s threat engine works so you can stop the alert cannon. Our VP of Detection and Prioritization Dean Teffer, PhD, explains how.

Imagine how much better our defenses would be if we defended as one unit instead of many individuals. A dozen analysts collaborating on a joint set of threats can be much more productive than a single analyst at a dozen companies working in isolation. That is the true power of Collective Defense.
