Incident Response Orchestration with LogRhythm 7

When it comes to cyber threats, you already understand how pertinent mitigation is. However, many organizations struggle with inefficient or effective remediation solutions.

Preventive technologies such as IPS and malware prevention can mitigate threats discovered from a single data point. But what options do you have when you can only discover complex threats via analytics across multiple data points?

LogRhythm 7 expands on previously introduced instant automation and orchestration capabilities—allowing you to more efficiently “tee up” appropriate and/or immediate responses for the activities observed in the IT environment. As a result, LogRhythm 7 expedites the time it takes you to recognize, qualify and mitigate discovered threats.

Rapidly Identify Activities that Represent the Most Risk

Using environmental threat and risk factors, LogRhythm 7 gives you an enhanced risk-based scoring algorithm. With this, you have the ability to recognize activities that represent the most risk to your organization. This higher level of precision when prioritizing alarms enables more efficient, risk-aligned monitoring operations.

Automate Your Countermeasures Quickly and Efficiently with Extensions to the SmartResponse™ Framework

In LogRhythm 7, there are multiple pre-staged actions ready to be commissioned and appropriately tied to the activities observed. You can automate a variety of common investigatory and remediation actions at the end-point with SmartResponse, ensuring you execute the appropriate mitigation tactics quickly and efficiently.

SmartResponse provides you with a unique ability to establish an integrated approval process workflow to each action assures that the correct actions are performed with the right team members in or outside the security team aligned to each action.

Improved Visibility into Active Incidents Enhancing Cross-Team Collaboration

With a variety of improvements to Case Management, LogRhythm 7 delivers a powerful means for collecting, distributing and analyzing data tied to specific events and incidents. Quickly understand the scope of an incident by adding evidence to a specific case and associate related cases together to access the “superset” of all pertaining evidence and more aligned collaboration with other analysts.

In addition, LogRhythm 7 adds a great new capability I have been having a lot of fun with—an ability to tag cases with appropriate key words such as the user, the host, the type of incident to facilitate searches, filtering and dashboard views.
