NetWitness in GigaOm’s Radar Report

With its rigorous methodology, the GigaOm Radar Report evaluates cybersecurity solutions based on technical prowess, vision execution, and innovation capacity. Including NetWitness’s products in this report is a testament to the efficacy and innovation inherent in our solutions. 

Network Detection and Response (NDR)

At its core, NDR doesn’t just identify threats; it analyzes raw network packet traffic, monitoring both incoming (north-south) and internal (east-west) traffic flows. This comprehensive surveillance allows it to catch malicious activities that may go unnoticed, from advanced persistent threats and data exfiltration to lateral movements and ransomware attacks. By leveraging advanced technologies like behavioral analytics and machine learning, NDR goes beyond known attack patterns and signatures, detecting new and evolving threats.

NetWitness’s take on NDR, NetWitness Network, encapsulates these principles and further enhances them, offering features like:

✔ Comprehensive Network Visibility: Ensuring a panoramic view of all network traffic, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or spanning virtual environments.

✔ Intuitive Investigation and Forensics: Equipping professionals with tools for a thorough forensic analysis, ensuring a quick and efficient investigation process.

✔ Full-Packet Capture: Enabling a “DVR” replay of incidents, ensuring no detail is missed during analysis.

✔ Metadata-Only Flexibility: Offering storage-efficient solutions without compromising on the depth of detection.

✔ Flexible Response Actions: Incorporating automation to rapidly address new threats and resolve known ones.

For NetWitness’s NDR product, the GigaOm Radar for Network Detection and Response (NDR) highlighted: 

  • The “Exceptional” score in multiple areas of the NDR Radar Report emphasizes strengths like Historical Forensics, Automated Response, and Managed NDR.
  • NetWitness’s categorization as an “Outperformer” reflects our commitment to delivering top-tier technology and continuous innovation in a rapidly evolving market. 

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions have long been the cornerstone for centralized security insights. As the digital ecosystem grows in complexity, the role of SIEM solutions has transitioned from merely collating logs to providing in-depth, actionable intelligence in real time.

SIEM systems now give security analysts a panoramic view of an organization’s security status. They pinpoint vulnerabilities, track user behaviors, and flag suspicious activities by gathering and correlating data from diverse sources. But in a sea of SIEM offerings, what makes a solution genuinely stand out?

NetWitness’s SIEM product, NetWitness Logs, exemplifies advanced capabilities in this sphere:

✔ Data Enrichment: Enhancing log data with threat intelligence and contextual insights, this feature reduces false positives and streamlines threat prioritization.

✔ Extensive Visibility: Offering widespread log visibility ensures a seamless analysis across distributed and virtual landscapes, leading to swift detection and response.

✔ Flexible Reporting: Customization is key, and NetWitness allows tailored report views and formats to meet unique organizational needs.

✔ Accelerated Alerts: By parsing and enriching log data upon capture, alerts are faster and more accurate.
