Cybereason App Provides Anytime Access to Security Operations Center


Cybereason App Provides Anytime Access to Security Operations Center

By Greg Tavarez

Most businesses follow a daily schedule.  They are open during the day, closed at night.  They are open Monday-Friday and closed on weekends.  They are closed on many holidays.  But, they all face a threat that doesn’t sleep or take days off – cyber attacks.  Cybercriminals have taken to attacks against business networks during off-hours, such as weekends and holidays.

Cybereason’s study, "Organizations at Risk: Ransomware Attackers Don’t Take Holidays,” revealed that nearly half of security professionals don’t believe they have the tools in place to effectively manage cyberattacks. More specifically, nearly one quarter indicated they don’t have contingencies in place to assure prompt responses to threats on weekends and holidays.

Cybereason, an XDR company, launched the Cybereason Managed Detection and Response, MDR, mobile app that will allow defenders access to a security operations center at their fingertips. With the app, defenders can further reduce the mean-time-to remediation by suspending an attack’s lateral movement directly from their mobile device.

Cybereason empowers security analysts to understand the full scope of attacks in real-time leveraging the patented MalOp Detection Engine. App features will include:

  • Visibility into detections and active MalOps to better understand the scope of an attack and how they align to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework.
  • Anytime access to dashboards and ability to initiate responses from any mobile device.
  • Quickly identify and isolate compromised machines to remediate and minimize downtime and workflow disruptions.
  • Constant contact with the Cybereason Global SOC to immediately address potential threats.
  • Remotely initiate response actions with confidence.
  • Access reports and industry news to stay abreast of the latest tactics, techniques and procedures used by nation-state threat actors and cybercriminal ransomware gangs.

“Security analysts face alert fatigue, staffing shortages and more attacks coming during off peak work hours,” said Lior Div, Cybereason CEO and co-founder. “The Cybereason MDR Mobile App provides the context needed between alerts and a MalOp and access to our global SOC from anywhere in the world.”

Of course, having access to the SOC and data doesn’t mean security and IT professionals are freed entirely from the burden of their roles during off hours.  But, it does mean they have a much easier time addressing threats from wherever they are.

Cybereason MDR Mobile App is available in the Apple App Store and will be available later in August in the Google Play Store, supporting Android and iOS devices.
