Native XDR — perfect fit for cybersecurity clarity

Have you ever tackled one of those thousand-piece puzzles that depict a scene predominantly composed of leaves or trees? In frustration, you may have cobbled together pieces that looked like they worked together, but there were tiny gaps due to the imperfect fit. Still, you could somewhat see the emerging scene. Ultimately, if one continued in this fashion, the ill-fitting result would be an incomplete picture, without clarity or precise detail.

Today’s cybersecurity cybersecurity defenses need a cohesive, holistic picture of an enterprise ecosystem comprised of software, processes, services, best practices, and skilled personnel. With the proliferation of security products and tools, there has been a concomitant explosion of security alerts, with thousands generated every day. It has become a management nightmare for security operations and an escalating security risk. Security teams are suffering fatigue from alerts so overwhelming, they’re unable to address them all.

A multilayered approach with XDR, SIEM, and SOAR

Security teams are increasingly recognizing the importance of eliminating disparate, single function product silos that create security gaps, heighten risk, and increase management complexity. A multilayered approach to cybersecurity that integrates multiple security capabilities into a comprehensive security operation has become a business imperative.

Let’s examine three cybersecurity components that are crucial for a more effective and streamlined management of security infrastructure. The convergence of SIEM, SOAR, and XDR into the enterprise security stack greatly relieves overburdened security personnel, while maximizing security efficiencies.

SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) gathers and aggregates alerts from across an enterprise-wide network for visualization, prioritization, rationalization, and prompt action. SIEM takes these actions to simplify the investigation, analysis and mitigation of system alerts:

  • Collects data from servers, firewalls, EDRs, operating systems and other products and stores the data centrally
  • Sets up rules and incorporates policies for admins to prioritize issues
  • Provides central management for all event logs
  • Sends notifications to security personnel when an event triggers a rule

SOAR (Security Orchestration Automation Response) connects and integrates disparate security products, like scanners, firewalls, EDRs and more, by using built-in or custom integrations and APIs. SOAR streamlines threat and vulnerability management, automation of security operations and incident response. Automation is crucial in managing the staggering number of alerts and data generated by individual security products. SOAR automatically executes log analysis, ticket checking, and auditing using AI and ML to interpret insights.

XDR (Extended Detection and Response) takes a major step in consolidation by replacing single function products with more diverse security capabilities for security cohesion. XDR provides greater protections by:

  • Aggregating and correlating threat detection with diverse telemetry input
  • Protects apps, email, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks using automated data analysis
  • Conducts detailed forensic investigation for accurate security intelligence and response

The accelerating move towards product consolidation and the benefits of these three foundational cybersecurity components are not lost on security vendors. In a competitive market, vendors of SIEM, SOAR, and XDR are creating integrated bundles to attract customers. While integrating heterogeneous products for a multilayered security stack is an essential approach, there can still be blind spots and incomplete data sharing between functions. To make those pieces fit together seamlessly, native multifunction security delivers the full picture for clear detection and mitigation.

Native architecture for unified, holistic cybersecurity

A native multifunctional security architecture leverages sophisticated analytics across all security functions for unparalleled sharing of data intelligence. With automated processes and intuitive full-view platforms, security teams have access to the whole chain of events for rapid detection and response. Alerts are expediently analyzed and prioritized, simplifying the process, and increasing productivity.

In evaluating cybersecurity platforms, security leaders should look for native integration of SIEM, SOAR, and XDR for streamlined security processes and unified management of roles, rules, and permissions across products. Simplifying the login user experience decreases risks associated with password credentials and eliminates friction. A cybersecurity solution with a single integrated dashboard allows users to simply click on the different security product links to access and work with them.

RevBits Cybersecurity Intelligence Platform (CIP) makes all the parts a unified whole

RevBits unique architecture with natively embedded security products eliminates security gaps and blind spots that leave enterprises vulnerable to malware, man-in-the-middle, phishing, SQL injection, stolen credentials, and other threats.

RevBits CIP integrates all on-boarded products and modules within a single intuitive dashboard to detect and respond to any anomalous activity across the security stack. Workflows, alerts, and responses are automated in real-time for rapid analysis and mitigation. With fast and detailed root cause diagnostics and automatic system shut down capabilities, RevBits CIP far exceeds the alert detection, response, and risk prevention of standalone security components or non-native multilayered security products.
