Editor’s note: This is part one of a four-part blog series detailing the technologies powering the ReliaQuest GreyMatter security operations platform and the future of security operations in general.
The world of security operations is rapidly evolving, with new technologies and tools emerging every day to help organizations stay ahead of security threats.
In this blog series, we’ll dive deeper into the cutting-edge security operations tools and technologies that power the ReliaQuest GreyMatter security operations platform and that are accelerating security operations. The faster you can make the cycle of threat detection, investigation, and response (DIR) spin, the stronger your security operations. The DIR lynchpin technologies include bi-directional APIs, threat analysis through data stitching, and automation across the full lifecycle. In this blog series, we’ll discuss these technologies in detail, including how they work, their benefits, and real-world examples of successful implementation.
As the threat landscape continues to evolve, it’s important for organizations to deploy the right tools to stay ahead of threats. These technologies offer an innovative approach to security operations management, and we’re excited to explore them further in this series. So without further ado, let’s dive in.
One of the technologies that’s going to power better security operations for years to come is bi-directional API integrations. Right now, most APIs are uni-directional, pushing data one-way. Now, bi-directional integrations allow data to flow between a security operations platform like GreyMatter and your existing security tools in either direction, enabling the ingestion of data and the execution of response actions on an automated basis.
Speed and efficiency are essential in security operations, and that’s not going to change anytime soon. The faster you can detect, investigate, and respond to suspicious activity, the lower the risk. And efficiency through automation helps to make the most of everyone’s limited resources. Automated threat analysis that stitches together data from across your security tool portfolio is a key to achieving accelerating DIR now and in the future. Automating “high time, low brain” investigative tasks enables your security team to speed resolution and frees up time to complete priority projects.
Data stitching combines what was once disparate data living in multiple sources into a single view. By collecting data from different sources (such as EDR tools, SIEM tools, firewalls, threat intelligence feeds, etc.), security analysts can have a holistic overview of the environment and any potential threats. This seamless approach helps security teams to quickly understand context and take action against threats.
Without these technologies, analysts spend hours manually reviewing data streams to detect potential threats. Now, with automated threat analysis and data stitching, the process is drastically reduced to minutes or even seconds. This reduces potential damage, shortens investigations, and frees time for security teams to contribute to business objectives more than they ever have before.
Automation brings out the best in bi-directional integration and data stitching. Applying automation across the DIR lifecycle can transform your security operations. Imagine responding to a threat with a single click, or quickly generating a summary of all the data surrounding an alert. Automation makes that possible, eliminating the burden of manual detection, investigation, and response.
The conventional way of approaching threat investigation requires manual work and swiveling between screens. But the future of security operations will be driven by automation. The GreyMatter security operations platform uses automation now to streamline the DIR process and reduce time-consuming manual work. We’ve also applied generative artificial intelligence (AI) to the process, providing security teams with instant context.
Automated and pre-defined sets of actions allow security teams to respond quickly to security incidents. By leveraging automation, security teams can investigate potential threats in real-time, contain and remediate them, and restore normal operations, all without swiveling between consoles or manually entering data or commands.
Because of these benefits, automation is a critical component of any forward-looking security operations strategy.
Combining these tools results in a cutting-edge security operations center that will serve any organization well for years to come. Automated threat analysis and data stitching make it easier for security teams to quickly identify malicious activity and take appropriate action. Automated response playbooks can automate tedious tasks, freeing up personnel to contribute to business goals. Finally, bi-directional API integrations allow you to leverage existing tools to detect, investigate and respond to threats without having to pivot between consoles.
There are multiple implications to these capabilities, but they all point to one thing: greater efficiency, accuracy, and agility in security operations. With the right strategy and toolset in place, organizations can shift from reactive approaches to proactive ones. They can move beyond firefighting mode and start building robust, resilient systems capable of preventing cyber attacks before they happen.
