Cyber Threat Investigations Challenges

The world of cyber security has many technologies across the entire attack surface. There is a web of complexity to be managed. This becomes frighteningly obvious when trying to investigate threats, both historical and in real time. How do you translate event logs from a myriad of systems into a story of what happened and what is happening? How do you operate at a great scale and at the same time paint a simple picture? How do you allow the analyst to unpack and unpeel the story the logs are telling quickly and intuitively. This is amongst the greatest cyber-specific challenges facing the SOCs & CSIRTs.

The Siren Data Model & Cyber Investigations

Enhancing investigative capabilities in cyber

The Siren data model leverages the MITRE ATT&CK® framework to encode, define, categorize, and present the cyber attacks in a manner that is easy to understand.

When investigating cyber threats, it requires skilled analysts to fuse, understand, and analyze the available data. Siren enables security analysts to search all the data in a single pane of glass, moving from one index to another through intuitive graphs or relational navigators that makes exploring logs effortless – without complex query languages.
