MixMode Product Updates, Stories on Cybersecurity, AI, and Everything in Between.
In this whitepaper we'll discuss the ways in which SIEM has failed to deliver on promises made to the cybersecurity industry and why cyber teams must instead turn to a next-gen platform powered by unsupervised AI.
Despite a three-year SIEM deployment and a two-year UBA deployment, government personnel needed an alternative to better detect and manage threats in real-time. They turned to MixMode.
The cybersecurity market has, simply put, been cobbled together. A tangled web of non-integrated systems and alerts from siloed systems. Enterprises are now being forced to utilize a “Frankenstein” of stitched together tools to create a platform that might cover their security bases.
A large utility company approached MixMode with the following scenario: The enterprise SOC was utilizing a shared SIEM application that was being utilized by several stakeholders: the networking team, the SCADA team, the dev-ops team, the compliance team and cybersecurity teams for “basic search and investigation of log files to meet regulatory compliance requirements”.Read More
A number of recent high profile ransomware attacks on U.S. hospitals have demonstrated the urgency for organizations, municipalities, and critical services to take a proactive approach to protecting networks with a predictive AI solution.Read More
Despite a three-year SIEM deployment and a two-year UBA deployment, government personnel needed an alternative to better detect and manage threats in real-time, as well as an improved platform for gathering comprehensive data.Read More
At MixMode our one algorithm is capable of catching any anomaly that may appear on the network. In contrast, other security programs rely on a reactive method of patching and constantly adding to their algorithms each time a hack occurs so that the network learns what to look out for.Read More
Because the fundamental nature of SIEM requires infinite amounts of data, security teams are forced to constantly wrangle their network data and faced with an unmanageable number of false positive alerts. This means they have to devise efficient ways to collect, organize and store data, resulting in an incredible investment in human and financial resources.Read More

Despite its inherent flaws, today’s SIEM software solutions still shine when it comes to searching and investigating log data. One effective, comprehensive approach to network security pairs the best parts of SIEM with modern, AI-driven predictive analysis tools. Alternatively, organizations can replace their outdated SIEM with a modern single platform self-learning AI solution.Read More
It should be noted that SIEM platforms are exceptionally effective at what they initially were intended for: providing enterprise teams with a central repository of log information that would allow them to conduct search and investigation activities against machine-generated data. If this was all an enterprise cybersecurity team needed in 2020 to thwart attacks and stop bad actors from infiltrating their systems, SIEM would truly be the cybersecurity silver bullet that it claims to be.Read More
The fundamental SIEM flaws lie in the platform’s need for continual adjustment, endless data stores, and a tendency to create an overwhelming number of false positives. When organizations instead turn to a next-generation cybersecurity solution, which predicts behavior with an unsupervised (zero tuning) system, they are poised to save on both financial and human resources.Read More
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.
