Adaptive Threat Hunting

Challenge

The post-attack indicators that threat hunters use to identify active attacks have critical flaws:

  • No organizing principle – a lack of correlation between indicators and the adversaries behind them
  • No prioritization scheme – a lack of relevance and associated threat severity level
  • No feedback loop – threat hunters respond to each ad hoc threat without seeing the full threat landscape they operate within

While threat hunters spend time tracking down indicators, threat actors keep improving their evasion techniques. Rather than looking for needles in the haystack, threat hunters are better served looking for the thread that connects them all – their adversary, actions, and arsenal.

Solution

Opora ABA enables you to shift from hunting for indicators to hunting for adversaries. By tracking pre-attack adversary behavior and mapping attack infrastructure, Opora enables threat hunters to discover their persistent adversaries – whether they’re actively connected to their environment or merely targeting them for the next attack. With this level of visibility, threat hunters more effectively identify their biggest threats and actively reduce the overall attack surface area.

Benefits

Prioritize threat hunting tasks based on measurable adversary threat levels

Correlate IOCs and other threat data with associated adversary groups

Hunt down threats with complete attack infrastructure visibility

Expose, Preempt and Deter your adversaries
