Choosing the Right Security Operations Platform

A security operations platform can transform the way your security team operates and reduce overall risk to your business, but only if it has the capabilities you need. How do you make sure the options you’re considering will really fit your requirements?

In our guide, we detail the overall value of a security operations platform, the key capabilities you should consider in your evaluation, and how ReliaQuest GreyMatter fits into the puzzle.

Security Operations Buyer's Guide

Learn how choosing the right security operations platform can help you utilize existing tools, whether on-premises or cloud, to maximize visibility, reduce complexity, and better manage risk.

Three critical outcomes a security operations platform can help you achieve are:

  • Unifying your security operations
  • Staying ahead of the rapidly evolving threat landscape
  • Establishing a strong foundation to build and mature your security operations overtime

ReliaQuest GreyMatter: A Force-Multiplier For Your Security Operations

GreyMatter Universal Translator

Enable Communications Across Security Tools

Security-relevant telemetry lives across many tools and in many formats, making cybersecurity monitoring difficult. Manually normalizing data, learning query languages for each tool, and keeping up with newer tools is slowing your team. The Universal Translator, a patented technology, is a data-normalization engine that helps security operations teams get better visibility across your toolset and various security operations software.

  • Convert diverse data types from tools in your technology stack into a normalized format to facilitate search and enrichment.
  • Run queries at scale across your diverse portfolio of security tools and log sources.

The Universal Translator gives you the optionality to use the best security tools while eliminating the need for your team to develop and maintain expertise in many individual security tools.

GreyMatter Detect

Detect Threats Across Your Attack Surface

Security teams struggle to keep threat detections up to date across a diverse attack surface. GreyMatter Detect, a cloud-based threat detection library, manages and translates detections across tools including one or multiple SIEMs, EDRs, clouds, and other technologies.

  • Deploy detections using a centrally managed library across your existing security tool portfolio in minutes.
  • Run high-fidelity “detection as code” consistently across multiple technologies and tune it to individual environments.

GreyMatter Detect helps you locate threats faster, more consistently, and more accurately across your diverse attack surface without the pain of building detections for individual tools or software.

Data Stitching

Automatically Enrich Investigations with Threat Intel and Context

Threat investigations require data from both your portfolio of security tools and external threat feeds. Manual collection of incident artifacts and threat intelligence is time-consuming for enterprise SOC teams and can result in inconsistent and incomplete investigations. Data-stitching capabilities within GreyMatter streamline investigations by removing the high-time, low-brain processes of security operations and constantly monitoring your environment.

  • Extract context from security telemetry and relevant threat intelligence without ingesting data in a central location.
  • Apply a consistent and comprehensive cyber analysis methodology to prevent investigative gaps and accelerate investigations.

Reduce mean time to resolve (MTTR) for incidents and free your team to work on higher-priority projects.

Bi-directional Integrations

Automate Response Actions Across Tools at Scale

Running response actions manually through a broad set of tools hinders rapid response. GreyMatter provides bi-directional API integrations to facilitate response actions across tools.

  • Integrate with a fast-growing number of technologies including SIEMs, EDRs, firewalls, identity, email security, and cloud platforms.
  • Deploy configurable remediation playbooks that automate response actions through existing security technologies.

Accelerate threat response while sparing your analysts from the pain of executing individual response actions in individual tools and switching between SOC software.

Integrations and Connections

Reinforce Your Security Ecosystem with over 135 Integrations

The GreyMatter cloud-native Open XDR platform integrates with a fast-growing number of market-leading technologies, from SIEM and EDR to, firewall, cloud platforms and more. A powerful ecosystem that allows you to force multiply your security operations team to achieve Open XDR outcomes–unify detection capabilities, investigations, hunts, and containment of threats across your environment. New integrations deployed monthly.

Why ReliaQuest?

ReliaQuest GreyMatter Unifies and Automates Security Operations Workflows

Our Approach: ReliaQuest GreyMatter Security Operations Platform
  • Tuned detections that deliver high-fidelity alerts, automation that speeds investigations, and playbooks to streamline response
  • Transparent investigations in which your team can participate
  • Optimal use of your investments across SIEM, endpoint, network, cloud, and on-premises technologies
  • Holistic metrics across detection, investigation, and response workflows
Alternate Approaches to Threat Detection, Investigation, and Response
  • Detections that lack fidelity, which can result in high volumes of false-positive and duplicate alerts
  • "Black box" approach that hinders your team's ability to understand and participate in investigations
  • Endpoint detection and response-centric approach that struggles to leverage heterogeneous security investments
  • Tool-centric reporting
