Third-wave AI has Proven More Effective than Traditional Cybersecurity Platforms and Methodologies

By Geoffrey Coulehan, Head of Sales | May 4, 2021

Unfortunately, the majority of cybersecurity solutions available today rely on outdated applications for AI. So-called first- and second-wave AI solutions don’t cut it, but few vendors have the technical capabilities and know-how to apply cutting edge, third-wave AI to their platforms.

SIEM Cannot Detect (and Ignores) Zero-Day Attacks

By Christian Wiens | April 29, 2021

Organizations are exclusively depending on selective information forwarded to the SIEM. The information that inevitably exists outside the system of record — information relevant for zero-day attacks — is ignored.

Cybersecurity Spend for Data Retention and Analysis is Out of Control and Largely Unnecessary

By Geoffrey Coulehan, Head of Sales | April 27, 2021

Managing a relatively small, stable data store is one thing, but dynamic companies face immense challenges when those circumstances change. Data growth can become unwieldy to safeguard when it has to be carefully prepared through a series of time-consuming, manual processes before the security software can evaluate it.

Incremental Stacking of Correlative Analysis Platforms Will Ultimately Prove Ineffective and Costly

By Geoffrey Coulehan, Head of Sales | April 8, 2021

On the surface, an “incremental stacking” approach to correlative analysis platforms like SIEM, XDR and UEBA is logical. Organizations can overcome some of the inherent limitations present in their security solutions by adding a network traffic analysis (NTA), for example. Industry analysts have been touting this approach for some time now as necessary for full coverage enterprise security.

About MixMode

MixMode is the first to bring a third-wave, context-aware AI approach that automatically learns and adapts to dynamically changing environments. MixMode’s monitoring platform, PacketSled, better understands network behavior as it adapts to baseline changes and enables both misuse detection and anomaly detection, as well as predictive maintenance. Used by enterprises and MSSPs for real-time network analysis, threat hunting and incident response, the platform leverages continuous stream monitoring and retrospection to provide network forensics and security analytics. Security teams can integrate PacketSled into their orchestration engine, SIEM, or use PacketSled independently to dramatically reduce false positive alerts and the resources required to respond to persistent threats, malware, insider attacks and nation state espionage efforts.

The company has been named an innovator in leading publications and by security analysts, including SC Magazine, earning a finalist award in 2018 and 2019 for "Best Computer Forensic Solution.” Based in Santa Barbara, with offices in San Diego, the company is backed by Keshif Ventures and Blu Venture Investors.
