In today’s’ business, analytics-driven security is the most important, because cyber-attacks across industries are very common. Security analytics makes the threat landscape less risky. As the security incidents may happen anytime, it may cause a threat to your enterprise. Investigation and detection of threat issues are not quite east tasks and take more time to resolve. Lack of manpower and resources is also an issue. But analytics-driven security analysis surely makes your job easy. According to the IDC report, many enterprises adopted business analytics as a security measure to avoid the threat.
With analytics-driven security and automation, security analysts can investigate any doubtful action. They just remove the in-depth work linked with it. In such cases, IBM QRadar provides an individual viewpoint for security analytics. It combines all the related events to provide security members with alerts on each possible incident. This enables security analysts to respond fast to critical incidents.
Let’s discuss how security analytics can help you to address security challenges.
Data collection and analysis
Initially, IBM Qradar collects all data from your environment, such as logins, VPN connection, firewalls. Then it tracks all critical activity logs from your system and puts those into a separate system. It then investigates the data with an in-depth study.
Implementation of security analytics
With a standard approach to security analytics, it classifies the collected data and assets. Using Qradar Risk Manager (QRM), you can configure your network infrastructure and implement some defined rules. Implementing Qradar Vulnerability Manager you can also scan your network and vulnerable data. So, it will identify various security risks on the data.
Additional analytical features
While you implement tools and technologies to detect alerts in your network, you can add a proven technology for advance attack detention. Such as the QRadar Incident Forensics tool performs in-depth forensic investigations and repeat full network sessions. Again, you can use the Qradar Console as a user interface to manage the security admin tasks.
Enhance your security analysis with intelligence sources. When you investigate any alerts, you should focus on the relevant fields or tasks by updating the fields in the search pattern.
Automation of security analytics
Build an automated process, so that you can monitor your network that triggers alerts. You should quickly respond to that threat. It will allow you to measure regular security analyst’s effectiveness.
You can add any advance mechanism. So, it will help to detect and analyze the abnormal actions. You can link those with apply statistical operations on search results. It may help you to aggregate and count the results.
