Automated Advanced Persistent Threat Detection
An Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) is any adversary that gets inside your network and then lays low, quietly locating valuable data, collecting it, and then exfiltrating.
The attacker’s mission, ultimately, is to acquire or destroy high-value data without getting caught. The adversary campaign lifecycle describes the essential elements of this mission, which the attacker can’t avoid.
Versive focuses on catching adversaries who have already made it through perimeter defenses, before the real damage is done.
How Versive Detects APTs
The Versive Security Engine uses adaptive machine learning on your data, automatically customizing itself to your environment, to assure total accuracy in detecting suspicious behavior. The key is pinpointing behaviors that are unusual, both in the context of your unique environment and relative to the mission of the adversary. This is an enormous challenge given the variability in behavior and sheer volume of corporate data. What looks like suspicious data collection in one environment might be normal internal sharing in another; this is why machine learning is critical to the future of cybersecurity.
Here’s how the Versive Security engine detects APTs in your environment:
1. Learn the Environment: The Engine uses adaptive machine learning on data sources from across your network and logs, as well as supplementary security tools like endpoint monitoring, to learn what “normal” behavior looks like in your unique environment.
2. Suspicious Behavior Detection: The Engine models behaviors that are strong indicators of advanced adversaries in your environment.
3. Build Threat Cases: By connecting suspicious behaviors among multiple hosts across the Recon, Collection, and Exfiltration stages of the adversary campaign, the engine can track and visualize the progress of a threat over time, with a high degree of confidence.
4. Deliver Results: The Threat Case Viewer presents intuitive cases that represent coherent, well-documented threats that are straightforward to investigate. You can view results in the UI or access the data through the API to use in your existing tools.
Because the Versive Security Engine uses your actual data, and relies on behavioral analysis relative to your unique environment, even the most innovative hackers can’t game our system;
