Collective Defense

Cybersecurity is a team sport, as malicious actors and advanced persistent threats are constantly evolving their tactics. In this ever-changing landscape, it is crucial for organizations to collaborate and learn from one another’s experiences. At Devo, we recognize the importance of teamwork in combating these threats. We are committed to enhancing our product capabilities and content to empower every customer to participate in this collective defense. 

Introducing Devo Collective Defense 

Analysts often bear the burden of understanding the significance of isolated incidents within the ever-evolving threat landscape. They need a threat intelligence solution that provides timely threat context so they can take action with decisive confidence. 

Though threat intelligence has had a longstanding history, collaborative contributions to these datasets have remained scarce, leading to a unidirectional flow of information to end users. Traditional SIEMs have faced limitations in intelligence sharing because they operate on private, on-premises networks. Even with cloud migration through lift and shift approaches, modern SIEM architectures have struggled to support effective information sharing across the user community.

At Devo, we have changed that paradigm and doubled down on our commitment to accelerating analyst decision making, fostering collaboration, and collective strength. We are pleased to announce Devo Collective Defense, a community-based intelligence-sharing program that provides knowledge of threat activity and trends exclusively to Devo customers’ and partners’ security teams. 

The Devo Platform provides modern enterprises complete visibility into threats across all customer environments with its strategic location within the cloud, which enables Collective Defense to analyze millions of data points across thousands of domains with strict privacy controls, giving security teams the ability to expedite triage and accelerate investigations while strengthening the Devo user community.   

Devo Collective Defense helps customers detect emerging threats.

How Does Collective Defense Work?

Collective Defense automatically aggregates alerts, investigations, and contained threats across the Devo user community. It provides users with a unique combination of up-to-date threat intelligence and pre-built content that helps security teams make data-driven decisions to effectively investigate threats and respond to attacks. 

Collective Defense gives Devo customers exclusive access to: 

  • Threat Intelligence Feed –  The Collective Defense threat intelligence feed contains emerging threat details seen across the Devo community and can be used to add context to alerts, Activeboards, and query results.   
  • Threat Hunting Alert Packs – A set of alerts for Devo’s most popular ingested log sources such as AWS, Office365, Windows, and firewall. Collective Defense alerts detect malicious IOCs and elevates risky entities across the organization.
  • Intelligence Visualizations –  Collective Defense Activeboards visually display insights, patterns, threat hits, and trends so analysts can quickly identify suspicious behavior. 
  • Alert Enrichments – A new multi-lookup that enables analysts to correlate entity data, such as IP, domain, and URL against the Collective Defense feed to identify complex attacks.

Collective Defense Activeboards display insights so analysts can quickly identify anomalous behavior.

Devo MITRE ATT&CK Adviser

The Devo MITRE ATT&CK Adviser application maps alerts and log sources to MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques via alert heatmaps, alert coverage maps, and log source coverage maps. We have expanded its capabilities to increase organization visibility and customization. 

New feature improvements: 

  • Application Configuration – The adviser application provides a configuration section that enables users to specify whether certain alerts, techniques, or log sources are relevant to each environment, increasing coverage score accuracy. 
  • Multi-domain filters – If data is segmented into multiple domains or you’re an MSSP, the multi-domain filter gives organizations visibility into coverage in all domains from a single screen.
  • Improved Export – Identifying coverage gaps to improve can involve teamwork. All coverage data can be exported for team discussions on improvements. 

Configure the MITRE ATT&CK Adviser app to filter specific alerts, techniques, and log sources.
