Pravail Security Analytics can cost-effectively store packet captures for future reviews, and then loop that traffic to identify previously undetected threats using the latest threat intelligence. Looping is a unique feature of Pravail Security Analytics because it allows an organization to very rapidly look within their entire network, including the hardest to capture places, to reveal whether a vulnerability or intrusion has led to a successful breach of their network or data.
For example, now that the Heartbleed vulnerability has been identified, and protections have been updated, Pravail Security Analytics can loop old traffic to establish the attack timeline. These capabilities are all the more important as incident response and security operations teams are increasingly asked to quickly and accurately make calls as to when and how a network or key data has been breached, and what response and steps the organization needs to take next.
According to IT Harvest founder
Dynamic Incident Response & Forensics
Pravail Security Analytics leverages the Emerging Threats ET Pro Ruleset™, the benchmark in the industry. It also utilizes Arbor’s ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF), an extremely high-fidelity threat identification and remediation feed developed by Arbor’s Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT). ASERT is one of the largest dedicated research organizations in the security industry, combining 25 security analysts with a diverse set of expertise, including Fortune 25 Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) to former law enforcement, threat mitigation vendors and well-known malware researchers.
ASERT develops threat intelligence, complete with the security context customers require to detect and stop specific threats, and continuously enhances their security posture over time. In addition to the powerful combination of Emerging Threats and AIF, Pravail Security Analytics allows users to define their own threat signatures in snort format and have them executed on the platform. If your team has a bank of custom snort signatures that you use on your network, you can upload them and have them process alongside the Emerging Threats ET Pro Ruleset™ and the AIF feed.
“Determined, persistent and creative attackers are going to find a way in. The key is how quickly can network and security teams identify these intrusions, react and prevent exfiltration of corporate or customer data. In order to really understand subtle, advanced targeted attacks, enterprises need a complete record of all network traffic. They also need the highest fidelity threat intelligence, and as the Target breach has shown, alert fatigue is a clear and present danger for internal teams,” said Arbor Networks President
Flexible Deployment Options
Last month, Arbor announced the availability of Pravail Security Analytics in the Cloud along with a free trial that enables users to quickly analyze their own network packet captures for threats, anomalies and misuse. The free trial allows users to upload up to 1 GB of their own data for thirty days, demonstrating how powerful data visualizations can surface clear and actionable intelligence. For organizations that cannot upload their packet captures to the Cloud due to compliance or regulatory reasons, or wish to process data in real-time, the on-premise solution is an ideal alternative.
