Threat Intelligence must include reliable indicators about botnet communication and be enterprise ready out of the box -- G.T. LaBorde, CEO of Malcovery Security.
Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) June 03, 2015
Malcovery Security today announced their successful completion of the Splunk App Certification Program and HP ArcSight CEF Certification to provide high-fidelity intelligence to enterprise security professionals charged with protecting their networks from cyber threats. These certified services correlate high-signal, context-rich threat intelligence about the latest malware and phishing attacks with events collected from devices across enterprise networks.
The increasing number of malware attacks and lack of reliable indicators is straining security operations and response teams. According to a recent Ponemon Institute study, organizations only investigate “approximately 4 percent of all malware alerts” and “two-thirds of the time spent by security staff responding to malware alerts is wasted because of faulty intelligence.” Typical threat data providers fail to provide timely information or don’t perform enough analysis to filter out false indicators. This does not facilitate automation and puts extra burden on InfoSec teams to process the data feeds and any resulting alerts.
“Threat Intelligence must include reliable indicators about botnet communication and be enterprise ready out of the box,” said G.T. LaBorde, CEO of Malcovery Security. “By certifying our service with Splunk and ArcSight, we are responding to customer demand for an integrated solution that will improve their incident detection and response processes by alerting them to the events that matter most and filtering out the costly noise."
The power of Malcovery’s threat intelligence service within Splunk Enterprise and HP ArcSight allows enterprises to:
- Detect and remediate endpoints that are communicating with known botnets
- Reduce alert fatigue and costs associated with faulty intelligence
- Improve incident response using impact scores and contextual threat intelligence
- Minimize set-up and operationalization costs of intelligence service
