Cybersecurity, powered by information and insight, from Anomali®
ALL cybersecurity professionals rely to a certain extent on the goodwill of information disseminated by third parties. Sharing and leveraging the most up-to-date information on malware, cyberattacks, and so-called “black hat” activities can help organizations better respond to and prevent attacks.
The Anomali Threat Platform enables users to take meaningful action by applying insights from myriad sources of threat data to their own environment. Anomali’s solutions also leverage this threat data to detect cyber threats, ultimately helping organizations understand their adversaries and respond effectively.
The Anomali Threat Platform is made up of two key components: ThreatStream®, a Threat Intelligence Platform and Anomali Enterprise™, a threat detection solution. ThreatStream® supports intelligence teams and SOCs in their efforts to consume and operationalize threat intelligence by first pulling structured data streams from open source, commercial, and ISAC/ISAO sources.
It is also capable of importing data from disparate sources such as CSV files, PDFs, and web pages. ThreatStream® then applies machine learning algorithms to normalize and deduplicate across all sources to produce valuable information that informs security decisions and saves valuable man hours through reduced false positives.
ThreatStream® integrates this threat data with next-generation firewalls, intrusion protection and detection systems, EDR solutions, SIEM, and any part of the cybersecurity stack with an open API.
The solution provides a library of threat actor profiles along with their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), which aids in conducting investigations and remediation efforts.
ThreatStream® supports sharing this information with the community at large or to be specific, vetted groups via its Trusted Circles feature.
Anomali is the most widely-adopted and trusted platform for principal threat sharing groups like Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) worldwide. Through these sharing initiatives, organizations are able to gain access to the most relevant and up to date threat intelligence to amplify their defenses.
The other core component of the Anomali Threat Platform, Anomali Enterprise™, leverages threat intelligence to detect cyber threats by correlating internal network data with threat intelligence. Anomali Enterprise™ is capable of ingesting a subset of logs from the organization’s SIEM, as well as directly from network devices such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and proxies.
These logs are matched against threat intelligence provided by ThreatStream® to uncover hidden threats and link them to strategic intelligence. Anomali Enterprise™ also automatically conducts this type of analysis retrospectively for up to a year’s worth of logs, allowing users to identify previously unknown threats from new threat intelligence.
Anomali gives back to the community through free offerings, including STAXX, an open source STIX/TAXII solution.
STAXX users can ingest various threat feeds, including the free threat feed Limo from Anomali. Limo is an out-of-the-box TAXII service for users who want to get started with threat intelligence.
Now fully STIX/TAXII 2.0 compatible, Limo incorporates intelligence from Anomali Labs, the Modern Honey Net, open source feeds, and more. The Modern Honey Net provides access to a network of honeypots for real-time data collection.
Anomali enables organizations to protect themselves by rapidly operationalizing threat intelligence, reducing false positives, and decreasing the time between detection and response. Anomali provides a single platform for research and analysis where threat intelligence teams derive insight, and aids executives in creating comprehensive security strategies.
Applying this intelligence analysis within an organization’s environment helps to uncover breaches, identify adversaries responsible for breaches, and bolster efforts to proactively defend against future attacks.
