Managed Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

Logs are the foundation that enables incident response, forensics, preserving a full audit trail, and ensuring compliance. To be able to translate individual log messages into technical situational awareness of your cybersecurity posture, you need to combine and correlate the log data with a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system.

Our managed SIEM solution combines data from multiple log sources and puts the data in context. By using machine-learning and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), we enable you to detect actions before a data breach happens and track incident information. Our managed SIEM gives you the following capabilities:

  • Log collection and correlation, preserving the audit trail.
  • Alerts based on events and event-chains, with correlation to threat intelligence feeds.
  • Visualized information in dashboards and reports.

With our managed SIEM service, you will gain visibility into what happens in your networks and hosts. Our service includes hosting, licenses, maintenance, and an integration interface for all your logging needs. Contact us for more information.

Managed Detection & Response

Traditional antivirus solutions and monitoring tools cannot detect sophisticated attacks. At their best, they force you to work in a reactive mode, responding to incidents in a hurry and trying to minimize the damage. Instead of a hectic hassle, our Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service will secure your business from cyberattacks with a proactive approach, combining:

  • Semi-automated threat detection and response service.
  • Active defense: dynamic containment and blocking based on detected threats.

Vulnerability Management

When applications are developed fast, sometimes speed is the enemy of quality and security. What about the server software you just purchased? Is it free from plaguing security vulnerabilities that can cause you expensive downtime? And does your IT service provider install security fixes swiftly after they have been released?

We measure your environments' threat exposure from an information security point of view. We translate technical vulnerability data to executive decisions on information security.

Our vulnerability scans are continuous and automated. You will get:

  • Expert analysis of current vulnerabilities and mitigation recommendations. 
  • Information on how resilient your information systems and networks are against common threats.
  • Information on the effectiveness of the vulnerability management process as a whole: How quickly are your vulnerabilities getting fixed?

By applying continuous scans for applications and computing platforms accessible via the internet (or internal network), your organization can rest assured that most obvious software vulnerabilities are discovered and reported. Continuous scanning significantly reduces the probability of production failures and other disturbances. Timely reporting ensures that responsible parties can execute prioritized remedial actions over your most critical computing assets.

Our service covers the scanning technology and its maintenance, including required licenses, regular vulnerability scans of the selected applications’ IT infrastructure platforms, reports on the results, and 24/7 support and a support center contact point. Contact us for more information.

Red Teaming

Organizations invest in defensive security measures to protect their business. But are those effective? And how well can an organization protect its most valuable assets?

Nixu's red team tests how well the combination of people, tools, and processes work together in practice when facing a targeted attack. Think of it as a fire drill for your organization's security team to measure detection capabilities and response times. 

Nixu's red team utilizes the MITRE ATT&CK and TIBER-EU frameworks when conducting red teaming exercises. The frameworks characterize and describe adversary behavior, tools, techniques, and tactics used during targeted attacks. It also provides transparency during the red team exercise, revealing the utilized attack techniques and identifying gaps in the organization's security defenses. 

As an outcome of a red teaming exercise, your organization gets:

  • Invaluable insight into your detection and response capabilities when facing a targeted attack.
  • An overview of the weak points in your security controls and processes.
  • Detailed recommendations on how to improve your security. 
  • A full insight into the performed attacks to maximize your learning opportunity.

Nixu tailors the red teaming exercise to your organization's specific needs and the threats you are facing. Please contact us to further discuss how we can help improve your security.
