Omdia Research Spotlight: XDR

Few emerging cybersecurity market segments are garnering more attention than XDR. Here, Omdia highlights its recent research on XDR. Extended Detection and Response (XDR) technology is quickly taking the enterprise cybersecurity industry by storm. The term XDR, first coined in 2018 by Omdia Principal Analyst Rik Turner, is defined by Omdia as a single, stand-alone solution that offers integrated threat detection and response capabilities.

Beyond MITRE ATT&CK: The Case for a New Cyber Kill Chain

The Cyber Kill Chain and MITRE ATT&CK are popular reference frameworks to analyze breaches, but amid the rise of XDR, we may need a new one. If you work in information security, you will be aware of Lockheed Martin's Cyber Kill Chain and/or the MITRE ATT&CK Framework. Both are attempts to create a common language in which to describe the various stages of an attack, and the tactics utilized by the attackers.

SIEM and XDR Solutions: Key Questions MSSPs Should Ask

Security problems are essentially data problems. For threat detection, investigation and forensic analysis, one would ideally like to collect as much data as possible and store it as long as needed. But having a SIEM or XDR system that sucks up every packet or every log entry creates an ongoing demand for more storage, which can be expensive over the long term whether you’re using on-site resources or the cloud. Another issue is that searches or queries on huge volume of data can take a long time when a quick response may be critical for stopping an attack.

Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform stores metadata and offers flexible storage options

Stellar Cyber announced that its open and highly flexible approach to the long-term storage of large volumes of security data eases concerns about storage complexity and costs seen in legacy SIEMs or some proprietary XDR solutions used by security operations centers. Cybersecurity is essentially a data problem, with best practices necessitating capturing and retaining all available data to properly evaluate potential threats and keep an audit trail for future investigations.

The Best Network Protection: Go Deep or Go Broad?

Almost since the beginning of network security, vendors and practitioners have wrestled with choices between going deep and going broad for their security solutions. Mostly, the choice varies between predominantly one or the other. Going deep typically means careful monitoring and analysis of certain types of threats or behaviors at the cost of not examining a much broader range of activity. Solutions that are broader may lack the clarity and fidelity to make fast, accurate alerting. They also may miss important indicators.

Technology has always been - and continues to be – a field dominated by men. However, women have always played a crucial role in tech. The stories of some of these pioneers and current leaders have only recently gained widespread attention. But if women are half of the population why does their tech representation fail to reflect this? The problems that women in tech face can explain a lot of the disparities in not just representation, but pay and other issues. We assembled a panel of current tech leaders to discuss the history of women in tech, and the path forward.

The Realities of Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Technology

While the term XDR has become pervasive, the technology and market remain a work in progress with lots of innovation and market confusion. Given all the hype around extended detection and response (XDR) technology, it's worth starting this article by defining the term "XDR." XDR is an integrated suite of security products spanning hybrid IT architectures (such as LAN, WAN, infrastructure-as-a-service, data centers, etc.) designed to interoperate and coordinate on threat prevention, detection, and response. XDR unifies control points, security telemetry, analytics, and operations into one enterprise system.

The noise is real. Of that, we can agree. It started way back in history – whoops, wrong topic (shout out to all of you who know that lyric). Basic packet captures – the final arbiter of proof, started all this and has continued nonstop until this very day. Every security analyst worth his/her salt asks for the packet captures. Why do we have all this data? Do we need it all? With IOT today, my toaster can tell me how many toast points I have burned since 2019. Do we care? Should we care?

The Third Wave in Cybersecurity
Pipeline Pub

The Third Wave in Cybersecurity

On the surface, having lots of data becomes less of a problem with AI-driven security, as ML usually requires lots of data to train the model and learn the patterns. On the contrary, not enough data is obviously a problem as the less data, the less accurate and thus the less useful the ML model becomes. However, as time went by, researchers gradually realized that having the right data was far more important. Too much data without the right information is just a waste of computing power for ML as well as a waste of storage space. Earlier UEBA vendors with solutions based on logs from SIEM tools learned this hard lesson: the SIEM might have collected lots of logs, but only a few of them contain the right information related to user behaviors. So, although data-driven security builds a great foundation for AI-driven security, in order to build scalable and accurate AI-driven security, the right data is far more important.

A Return to Logs to Unjam the Security Deficit

A Return to Logs to Unjam the Security Deficit

Some years ago, during the renaissance of security information and event management (SIEM), security became log crazy. The hope was that by gathering logs from networking and security devices and running them through the SIEM, security events could be astutely exposed and security teams could gain an upper hand over attackers. The enthusiasm was soon dashed when it was obvious that logs alone were not the answer. In the first place, not everything was covered by logs and security details that were being captured could be manipulated easily as an attacker attempted to cover their tracks. Second, it’s one thing to aggregate logs but another to integrate the findings to produce true intelligence, particularly that which could easily stand apart from false positives.

Executives consider cyberattacks as one of the topmost business concerns, and it outranks other adversaries like brand damage, regulations, and economic uncertainty. In the prevailing cyber landscape, cyberattacks are considered to be inevitable, but security analysts suggest that these attacks can be largely prevented if the companies choose to implement robust security measures. By having a sophisticated security measure in place, we can reduce the chances of someone walking away with the company’s sensitive data.

Stellar Cyber adds cloud detection and response to its XDR offering

Stellar Cyber, a provider of threat detection and response technology spanning multiple domains of enterprise infrastructure, has launched a capability for cloud environments to complement the endpoint and network dimensions already addressed by its Starlight platform. It calls it cloud detection and response (CDR), a term Omdia has championed for a while. XDR covers endpoint, network, and cloud The vendor refers to Starlight as an Open-XDR platform, adopting the parlance that Omdia coined in 2018, referring to a spectrum of detection and response technologies for endpoint (EDR), network (NDR), and other areas, eventually including cloud. NDR is sometimes referred to as network traffic analysis (NTA), but Omdia sees the latter as a subset of NDR, in that traffic analysis is necessary to detect threats, but NDR adds the critically important response capability that enables organizations to also mitigate threats. NTA was developed earlier for the purpose of network performance monitoring rather than as a security function. Indeed, a number of NTA vendors, such as Gigamon, Netscout, and ExtraHop, have expanded into NDR in recent years, to align with the direction of the security market and expand their target audience from network operations to security teams.

In the majority of cases where the phishing email is being delivered, the user is clicking on the link, then they give the macro authorization to run, and ultimately get the malicious file installed. Once installed, the Maze ransomware begins to encrypt critical data on the infected machine. While the encryption process is running, the ransomware also ex-filtrates the data to a server on the internet. When both of those processes are complete, the user is presented with a ransom demand and a method to recover their encrypted data.
