After suffering a possible breach, a client approached the team at Nisos for help evaluating the security of their AWS environment.

Data breaches are expensive. By now, most organizations are well aware of this fact. When it comes to resource planning, however, SecOps teams need concrete data to ensure adequate funding is available to handle a breach.Read More

Bad actors do not discriminate. Organizations across all sectors are at risk — corporations, non-profits, and increasingly, federal and state government entities. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported that security incidents increased by 1,300 percent from 2006 to 2015. This number is growing.Read More
Companies are expected to spend up to $55 billion dollars on efforts to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which is still working out its final rules after going into effect this month.Read More
At MixMode, we can’t help but imagine the flip side of all that potential. An increasingly connected cyber landscape means an increased number of potential targets for bad actors. New tech is exciting, but it’s often inherently vulnerable to cyberattacks.Read More
Today’s security and IT teams are increasingly relying on wire data to better secure their networks. A recent report conducted by network performance and security monitoring vendor VIAVI revealed that more network teams than ever consider wire data the most important data source when confronting security incidents.Read More
While it’s true that having a SIEM is better than forgoing network monitoring all together, a standalone SIEM solution is simply insufficient in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Hackers and other bad actors have become more sophisticated — many of today’s cybercriminals can easily outsmart a standard SIEM setup.Read More
Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have led to smarter, more robust network security platforms that are quickly replacing legacy security solutions.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.
