Puzzles and cogwheels

Does your security team have dozens of tools to manage, all with disparate user experiences, data models, and capabilities? Unfortunately, this is the result of many traditional SIEM solutions that lack the ability to integrate all features. This creates a big challenge for your SOC because analysts have to ensure they’re using the right tool at the right time to detect attacks. But today, there’s a better option. Modern security data platforms integrate all features in order to help your analysts respond efficiently and effectively. Here are some of the ways a security data platform with integrated capabilities benefits your SOC.

1. Crafting the Perfect Attack Timeline

One of the most crucial capabilities of a security data platform is the ability to construct an attack timeline. This function is indispensable to SOC analysts because it provides a meticulous breakdown of the sequence of events. It’s like having the ability to replay the attack to get a clear understanding of how it unfolded. This invaluable tool not only aids in immediate response but also paves the way for future prevention strategies by identifying the exploited vulnerabilities and used attack vectors.

2. Streamlining Your Response to Threats

To effectively deal with threats, a security data platform must have broad device support and AI-powered decision automation. SOAR capabilities facilitate this by automating routine tasks and orchestrating complex workflows across different security tools. This not only speeds up the response process but also allows your SOC to make faster and more accurate decisions when faced with intricate threats.

3. Integrating Threat Intelligence

Integrated, readily available threat intelligence is another crucial capability that can boost the productivity of both experienced and junior analysts. By enriching log data with contextual information such as a threat’s origin, nature, and potential impact, analysts can make faster and more informed decisions.

4. Identifying Gaps in Coverage

Your security data platform should leverage the MITRE ATT&CK® framework to clearly visualize areas where the organization’s security measures might be lacking. This integration ensures that the platform’s analytics are grounded in an industry-standard list of threat tactics and techniques, enhancing its ability to categorize and identify threats accurately.

5. Optimizing Analyst Workflows

All necessary information and tools must be consolidated into a single, integrated user interface. This unified interface ensures that analysts have immediate access to all the data and tools they need, streamlining the analysis and response process.
