Security vendors know that there are (at least) three phases of information security management: prevent, detect and respond. It is a given that regardless of their vigilance, security groups will not be able to prevent all incursions that could translate into breaches. This means that companies must apply resources to detection and response. There are many tools already available to provide better detection, but few that offer better response capabilities. Organizations are looking for actionable intelligence, but even when they get it they often don’t have the capacity to quickly remediate all high priority incidents in as timely a fashion as desire. Even if organizations have the budget to hire the necessary staff to muscle through everything, there are not enough qualified personnel to fill the positions, so it is a no-win scenario without additional help from response capabilities.

Hexadite provides an automated Cyber Security Incident Response solution. They believe there are ample detection technologies available to provide insight into activities in the organization, but recognize the gap in ability to execute against the detected events. Hexadite has introduced the “Automated Incident Response Solution” (AIRS) to integrate with detection technology already in place such as SIEM, IDS, DLP, etc.  The data from the detection systems provide the necessary information for AIRS to determine the source of the problem and begin remediation in as automated a fashion as the administrator allows.
