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

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.

Our Top 2020 Cybersecurity Insights

The transition from office to remote environments was abrupt and one of the most defining moments that the cybersecurity industry and professionals faced in 2020. We wrote about the top issues CISOs were facing throughout the year but also doubled down on sharing insights about the evolution of next-generation SOCs, the failure of SIEM platforms as organizations are experiencing them today, and how self-supervised AI fits into the equation.

Russian Hack of U.S. Federal Agencies Shine Spotlight on SIEM Failures in Cybersecurity

In what the New York Times is calling, “One of the most sophisticated and perhaps largest hacks in more than five years,” malicious adversaries acting on behalf of a foreign government, likely Russian, broke into the email systems of multiple U.S. Federal agencies including the Treasury and Commerce Departments.

Recent Ransomware Attacks on U.S. Hospitals Highlight the Inefficiency of Rules-Based Cybersecurity Solutions

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.

The Case Against Using a Frankenstein Cybersecurity Platform

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.

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

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 a Platform With a Generative Baseline Matters

MixMode creates a generative baseline. Unlike the historically-based baselines provided by add-on NTA solutions, a generative baseline is predictive, real-time, and accurate. MixMode provides anomaly detection and behavioral analytics and the ability to suppress false positives and surface true positives.

New Whitepaper: How Predictive AI is Disrupting the Cybersecurity Industry

Our newest whitepaper, “How Predictive AI is Disrupting the Cybersecurity Industry,” evaluates several common SecOps issues around Network Traffic Analysis, explaining why typical solutions are wholly ineffective and represent sunk costs versus added value. We examine how self-supervised learning AI is poised to overcome the SecOps challenges of protecting today’s distributed networks.

The Big Switch: A Lack of Employable Security Professionals Causes Companies to Make the Switch to AI

For the past few years, a major problem has been mounting in the cybersecurity industry: a people shortage. Even before the outbreak of the current global pandemic, enterprises were hurting in the cybersecurity hiring department.  Companies are struggling to find employable cybersecurity professionals to handle an ever increasing and evolving number of new threats from …

Whitepaper: Actionable Anomalies – How MixMode AI Makes Your Security Data Smarter

In today’s ever evolving cybersecurity landscape there are major problems facing professionals that continue to worsen. These problems center around a shortage of tools advanced enough to understand the baseline of a network in order to pinpoint anomalies and a massive information overload problem in the form of security alerts.

New Video: Why is network data the best source for actionable data in cybersecurity?

In a recent blog post, our Head of Customer Success, Russell Gray, outlined the reasons why network data is the best source for actionable data in cybersecurity. He covered the limitations of each of the elements of a typical security stack (SIEM, Endpoint, and Firewall) and the importance of network traffic analysis (NTA) in the …
