As attacks increase in breadth, scope, and complexity, one of the most common vectors that remains is the endpoint. With up to thousands of endpoints to safeguard, it’s imperative to have solutions that seamlessly integrate to provide complete visibility into endpoint activity. It’s also necessary to have the ability to quickly respond if an abnormality or malicious activity occurs.
LogRhythm has partnered with Cylance to help customers address this challenge.
Recognize and Respond to Early Indicators of Compromise
The LogRhythm and Cylance integration centers around the ability to detect and prioritize intrusions faster by correlating detailed endpoint activity with other environmental context to recognize early indicators of potential compromise. The LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform continuously collects, normalizes, and analyzes rich, dynamic endpoint telemetry captured by CylancePROTECT. LogRhythm built Cylance-specific SmartResponse automated remediation actions to assist with rapid threat response.

The Cylance-specific SmartResponse plugin performs two major actions — the first is a contextual action that obtains host information. This includes details such as hostname/IP address, operating system (OS), status of the Cylance agent, status of the host (clean/infected), and last logged-on user. This contextual data supports analysts when investigating and remediating a threat as it enables them to determine the scope of an incident and accelerate workflows.
This SmartResponse is also capable of quarantining a file globally. In response to a malware incident, analysts can use this action to remove a file from all hosts on the network and prevent the breach from incurring further damage. This action is also useful when quarantining files not yet known as malicious, or when used to remove files from hosts that constitute a policy violation rather than security issue.
