The freedom to focus on what matters most

Today’s cyber security cannot follow the old playbook designed for detecting and mitigating attacks. The push for digitisation across industries and sectors has expanded the threat surface exponentially. The latest spike in ransomware attacks, data breaches, IP theft, bear testimony to that. Things have changed and need to be revamped and redesigned, keeping the latest attack vectors and attack surfaces in mind.

Therefore, it’s crucial to find a more holistic approach to threat detection, response, and mitigation beyond traditional endpoints, covering network and cloud. This is where Extended Detection and Response (XDR) comes in. XDR unifies and transforms relevant security data from your modern environment to detect real attacks and provide security teams with high-context and actionable insights. By aggregating threat detection and response across multiple controls, XDR can improve response efficacy and efficiency.

But did you know there’s probably something else worrying your security teams? After countless conversations with customers, we consistently hear one thing: what eludes security teams is not attackers; it’s time. Teams don’t have the time or resources to do it all, and forced trade-offs create opportunities for attackers to get in.

That’s why we purpose-built InsightIDR to give teams time to focus on successful, proactive and complete threat detection and response programs. InsightIDR is cloud-native and SaaS-delivered to eliminate the distractions of months-to-years-long deployments and configurations. With a focus on flexibility, intuitive UI, and a highly contextualised view of the environment ‘out of the box’, InsightIDR helps teams level up resources and see value on day one.

To sum it up, when your team is up against an attack, every second matters. With detailed, correlated investigations, a complete timeline of an attack and all relevant information they need in one place. With expert and community-driven playbooks and containment and automation built-in, your security analysts are empowered to eliminate threats faster—before attackers can succeed.

Cutting through the noise

Imagine this, your connected devices at home and office go rogue. The car drives you somewhere else instead of home, the office devices leak intellectual property and employee data, the home appliances reveal information about those at home. The thought of this happening would probably send shivers down your spine. Though it’s only an imaginary scenario, the probability of it happening is not impossible as threat actors become increasingly sophisticated.

In other words, with digital transformation, the attack surface has increased exponentially. Take the past year for instance. According to a report by Check Point Research, cyberattacks on the education sector have increased by more than 30% globally, with Australia being one of the top five countries to face the attacks. What led to this spike? Remote learning and virtual classes.

With today’s threat landscape, it’s imperative for security teams to have early, contextualised threat detection across their internal and external environment. Contextualised threat is the investigation and analysis of security alerts as they are generated.

Collecting vast amounts of remote data and making sense of it to identify true threats to your businesses is complex and time-consuming. You need more context about threats—across your internal or external attack surface—and the ability to drive proactive and automated threat mitigation.

Our IntSights solution combines external threat intelligence with community-infused threat intelligence to improve the signal-to-noise ratio and free up time to focus for security teams already stretched too thinly. With more intelligence on the internal and external threat landscape, we can offer more context and treat more threats with Emergent Threat Response. We can add and enhance capabilities across your portfolio to help you solve the security concerns challenging your organisation, as well as take a proactive approach to defend against the security concerns of tomorrow.
