Cisco XDR Solution
Cisco XDR Solution
Cisco XDR stands for Cross-layered Detection and Response and means layered detection and response. XDR collects and correlates information from various security layers, including endpoints, email, servers, cloud workloads, and the public network. This solution is a new approach to the old method of incident detection and response and a replacement for it, which integrates the processes of detection and response in several environments.
Well-crafted threats are difficult to detect because they operate between security silos. Security silos include several security approaches that work in parallel and not necessarily together. Since these threats can lurk between security silos, they are able to expand or multiply over time. As a result, they may escape the attention of the SOC Security Operations Center and end up causing more damage.
Cisco XDR isolates and destroys these threats, then aggregates and correlates each detection according to individual security layers. Each layer represents a different attack surface, including Endpoints, Email, Network, Servers, and Cloud Workloads: the specific methods by which the XDR solution protects against each attack surface are listed in the user’s XDR provider description.
Endpoint: Endpoint activity management is essential to understand how a threat infiltrates and spreads from one endpoint to another. Using Cisco XDR, it is possible to search for indicators of compatibility or IOC using endpoint manipulation and then hunt them down using information gathered from indicators of attack or IOA.
An XDR system can tell you what happened at one endpoint, as well as where the threat originated and how it spread across multiple endpoints. Cisco XDR can then isolate the threat, stop necessary processes, and delete or recover files.
Extended Detection and Response (XDR) security provides the following advanced threat detection and response capabilities:
- Identify and respond to targeted attacks
- Comprehensive analysis across all threat vectors
- Centralized configuration to help prioritize activities
- Automation and coordination to simplify many SOC processes
- Native support for analyzing user behavior and technology assets
- Reduce the need to chase false positives by automatically correlating and validating alerts
- Threat intelligence includes shared local threat intelligence along with sources of intelligence derived from external threats
Cisco SecureX is a cloud platform that provides businesses with a better “view” of their security infrastructure. This work is done through information analysis and work process automation. SecureX provides users with an integrated view of the security information of Cisco products and third-party products.
SecureX connects the Cisco Security Portfolio to the organization’s network infrastructure, which results in increased security, faster response to threats and vandalism, and reduced organization costs due to the automation of security processes.
Cisco SecureX Interface
SecureX’s highly customizable cloud-based dashboard provides overall security metrics and data to analyze and respond to threats.
SecureX’s dynamic dashboard displays network, user device, cloud, and application data to view threats and gain an operational view of your organization’s security architecture.
Products that support SecureX
Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints
- Cisco Umbrella
- Cisco Threat Grid
- Cisco Stealthwatch
- Cisco Web Security
- Cisco Email Security
- Cisco Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW)/Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS)
Benefits of Cisco SecureX
Creating integrated security and displaying real-time and dynamic statistical data has brought many benefits to organizations that use SecureX. Below are some of these benefits.
Integrated and comprehensive view of the entire security structure: By using the ability to display “Actionable insight”, you can respond to threats more quickly. Without such a feature, your team would have had to log in to each system separately to see the network status, resulting in reduced speed and efficiency.
Automation of security processes: By using automation of processes, you can increase the work efficiency of the organization. In an environment where there is no automation, you had to do complex processes manually. which also increases the possibility of human errors.
Better collaboration: With SecureX, you can share security information across teams. On the other hand, if you don’t use this platform, teams are forced to work separately, which increases the possibility of security breaches.
Reduce complexity and maximize the benefits of the Cisco security portfolio: By connecting your organization’s security infrastructure, you can have more capabilities available. But if there is no integration between your security systems, it will reduce the effectiveness of your security products.
Cisco Secure Endpoint
The Secure Endpoint API allows users to accelerate investigations by identifying which endpoints have seen a file, creating custom file lists, and moving endpoints into and out of assessment groups. In addition, all events generated in an environment can be collected and archived, allowing for a broad correlation of historical data.
What you can do with the licensed Cisco Secure Endpoint can be divided into below items:
- Create a group
- Mobile computer
- File list management
- Find where the file was
- Check if a file is running
- Capture command line arguments
Write the event
- Compare with other magazines
- Extensive event history archiving
- Storing events in third-party tools
