Given the large attack surfaces that expose our business critical systems today, and the volume of alerts our security teams have to deal with, it is impractical to assume that everything can be monitored and protected. Confluera XDR is designed to trace and track the path an attacker takes (known or unknown), and autonomously surface the threats that matter i.e. the ones that have the potential to cause damage.
The first step to respond “as fast as humanly possible” is to eliminate the need for investigations before a response can be deployed. Today, most security teams are scrambling to investigate the incident when a high severity alert is raised by some tool, and it takes them hours, sometimes even days before they really know what struck them. Confluera XDR provides the entire attack narrative in real-time, which changes the game. Your security teams get a shot at responding to the attackers, while the attack is in progress.
Even entry-level security analysts command $75,000/year in salary alone, and the cost to operate a SOC for a mid-size organization can easily be north of a million dollars. The basic job of such analysts: evaluate and analyze alerts, perform root cause analysis, establish timelines of an attack, and perform remediations. Confluera XDR automates all that with its autonomous investigation engine and a streamlined workflow, minimizing both effort and skills required to combat your adversaries.
Typical MSSP programs are not geared towards detecting and responding to advanced threats, hence their staff is also not specialized in detection and response services. With Confluera XDR, your staff doesn't need an enormous amount of training on incident investigations. Our automated incident investigations take away the need for highly specialized skills and staff training to become an MDR.
With Confluera XDR, your security teams gain real-time insights much beyond correlated events in SIEM. They don't need to prioritize alerts and perform cumbersome root cause analysis, and establish the timelines of an attack, be it targeted threats, ransomware, or malicious insiders. The Confluera XDR's autonomous investigation engine saves 90% of the human effort from your incident response team, thereby increasing their productivity, and your margins.
As much as 90% of alerts today are discarded because its humanly impossible to handle the volumes. Typical low/medium severity alerts are overlooked, which is what the stealthy attackers take advantage of in their low and slow campaigns. With Confluera XDR, your teams get to see the complete attack narratives (alert sequences) in real-time, irrespective of the severity and volume, so there is no chance of missing even low severity detections.
