Use Case

Security Operations Center

Supercharge your Security Operation Center

In cyber operations, the slowest runner sets the pace. SOC practices spread across multiple tasks, all equally crucial: gaining optimal visibility, looking far and wide across the threat landscape, and laser-focused analytics and response. The Picus Platform can help you boost your security operation center functions across the board: from visibility to detection and response.

Measure what matters with MITRE ATT&CK

The MITRE ATT&CK knowledge base provides the foundation to define a standard system to measure cyber readiness. Picus embraces the threat-centric approaches and empowers SOCs by bringing in offensive security practices and assesses your posture against a broad spectrum of adversarial TTPs, checking your visibility and resilience vis-à-vis all tactics, in alignment with MITRE ATT&CK.

Ensure Log Collection Consistency and Scope 

A solid log aggregation infrastructure is the most important element of a healthy SOC. SIEM Platforms can only process, categorize, and make sense of the data they could receive. Collecting logs from multiple sources within complex network infrastructures has its own challenges. Issues such as connectivity, old firmware, API compatibility, licensing and others may block, interrupt, or delay the log collection process. The Picus Platform adds log collection validation as an innovative capability, ensuring that other high-level SOC functions are carried out efficiently.

Gain Visibility on Security Control Gaps   

SOC managers aim to build strategic oversight that largely depends on the context provided by security control solutions, such as the next-gen firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, endpoint detection and response, web application firewalls, and others. Any security gap on control and detection solutions would lower the reach of the necessary oversight.

The Picus Security Control Validation Platform acts as a link between security functions by shedding light on undetected or missed threats in the defensive estate. This capability improves communication, boosts prevention, and allows SOC teams to ensure that security stacks are hardened against novel and deceptive threats. The visibility that Picus provides gives SOC teams confidence that the underlying security estate is effective and running correctly.

Improve Alerting Capabilities Continuously 

SIEM platforms sit at the heart of Security Operation Centers. Managing a SIEM and constantly sharpening its alerting capabilities is more difficult under the pressure of time and unknown threats. By constantly matching a vast library of threats with detection capabilities and processing logs of multiple endpoints and network security sources, Picus reveals the correlation rule update requirements continually with none to minimal false positives.  

Through direct alliances with the most prominent SIEM and EDR vendors, The Picus Platform raises the bar, by giving the SOC employees specific alert rules tailored for different brands. Current SIEM and EDR mitigation alliances of Picus Security address Splunk, IBM QRadar, and VMware Carbon Black platforms. 

Empower Threat Hunters and Incident Responders 

Threat Hunting and Incident Response are key SOC activities that address the same problem from opposite ends. Threat hunters proactively seek to find the adversarial footprints that may be hiding in the network and eliminate them before the next action was triggered. Incident responders step in after a malicious activity is detected to contain it as fast as possible. 

The long term or recently identified detection gaps by the Picus Detection Analytics Solution help threats hunters build the most likely hypotheses to go after and quickly acquire the knowledge of the adversarial behavior to conduct hunting activities with precision and speed.

Using the Picus analytics insight, incident responders can quickly investigate the defensive capabilities related to the identified incident, containing it using in-depth adversarial technique information. Picus vendor-specific mitigation guidance on network security controls, SIEMs, and EDRs assist incident responders also during the remediation stage.
