The Case Against Using a Frankenstein Cybersecurity Platform

By Ana Mezic | October 29, 2020

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.

Improving on the Typical SIEM Model

By Christian Wiens | October 27, 2020

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 Alternatively, organizations can replace their outdated SIEM with a modern single platform self-learning AI solution.

The Evolution of SIEM

By Christian Wiens | October 13, 2020

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.

Whitepaper: The Failed Promises of SIEM

By Christian Wiens | October 8, 2020

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.

How Data Normalization in Cybersecurity Impacts Regulatory Compliance

By Christian Wiens | October 6, 2020

Complying with privacy regulations requires all organizations to have access to data on demand, wherever it lives on a network. With the unfathomable amount of data managed by most organizations operating in the finance space today, it can become a significant challenge to locate specific data across legacy systems and networks with countless connections online and off.

Webinar: The Failed Promises of SIEM – What’s Next For Cybersecurity

By Christian Wiens | September 29, 2020

The Security Operations Center (SOC) of today is fundamentally flawed. Currently enterprise cybersecurity spend is higher than ever, but despite multi-million dollar cybersecurity investments, organizations remain vulnerable to attacks. One of the major reasons for this is legacy SIEM deployments. More spend does not equal more security.

3 Reasons Why a Rule-Based Cybersecurity Platform Will Always Fail

By Ana Mezic | September 24, 2020

When it comes to advancements in cybersecurity, rule-based systems are holding the industry back. Relying on humans to constantly input and label rules in order to detect and stay ahead of threats is a bottleneck process that is setting security teams up for failure, especially with tools like SIEM, NDR, and NTA.

Why SIEM Has Failed the Cybersecurity Industry

By Ana Mezic | September 15, 2020

The time required for data processing, transition, aggregation, and the normalization does not allow real-time threat detection using today’s SIEM solutions. The only beneficiary of security through log aggregation is the SIEM vendor.

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.
