APT actors are well-trained, well-funded and highly motivated

Advanced, targeted attackers choose their victims carefully and map out their attack plan well before launching an attack. They conduct in‐depth reconnaissance to learn what defenses are in place and make calculated moves to avoid them. Once the attackers are in and they can always get in they operate low and slow to gradually gain persistence without setting off any alarms. To detect these highly sophisticated and stealthy attacks before the damage is done, security analysts need the ability to piece together several seemingly low-risk events in order to find the one extremely high-risk cyber attack underway.

Find the signal in the noise to uncover well‐hidden threats within your network.

The IBM® Resilient® Incident Response Platform is designed to detect well‐orchestrated, stealthy attacks as they are occurring and immediately set off the alarms ‐ before any data is lost. By correlating current and historical security information, the solution is able to identify indicators of advanced threats that would otherwise go unnoticed until it’s too late. Events related to the same incident are automatically chained together, providing security teams with a single view into the broader threat.

With IBM QRadar®, security analysts can discover advanced attacks earlier in the attack cycle, easily view all relevant events in one place, and quickly and accurately formulate a response plan to block advanced attackers before damage is done. To further accelerate incident response processes, analysts can leverage cognitive intelligence to dramatically speed up investigation times and, through integration with IBM Resilient, begin activating automated incident response processes.
