18 Jul Syncurity Releases Industry’s Most Customizable Security Operations Platform to Help SOC Analysts Prioritize, Overcome Alert Fatigue
IR-Flow Offers Triage Scoring Engine and API Software Developer’s Kit to Quickly Identify the Most Critical Alerts and Align Security Resources
Arlington, VA, July 18, 2017 — Syncurity, a market leader in the security operations automation and orchestration space launched out of the Mach37 Cyber Accelerator, today announced the immediate availability of several new advanced features for its Security Operations platform, IR-Flow. These features support IR-Flow’s existing “on-the-fly” customization capabilities to speed deployment and optimize resources through the separation of alert handling and incident management processes.
Additionally, the new components enable organizations to combat analyst alert fatigue by strategically incorporating Security Operations Center (SOC) personnel at key decision points, and provide visualization and reporting of IR-Flow’s detailed security “System of Record” for performance measurement, process improvement and compliance.
IR-Flow’s unique “Bring Your Own Enterprise” (BYOE) approach enables companies to quickly and easily adapt workflow and automation to their unique business processes and security technologies, regardless of team size and maturity. The newest features include:
- Triage Scoring Engine (TSE) – The patent-pending Triage Scoring Engine (TSE) allows customers to define risk based on their unique enterprise requirements and dynamically score incoming and existing alerts based on their custom risk definition. This enables rapid identification of critical alerts, improving the effectiveness of limited resources and, ultimately, leads to better cybersecurity outcomes such as reduced time to containment and remediation.
- API Software Developer’s Kit (SDK) – With the IR-Flow API Software Developer’s Kit (SDK), customers can configure integrations to custom software or tools that do not have out-of-the-box connectors, within hours. Rather than requiring specialized skills or resources, analysts can quickly and easily define integrations and align disparate systems based on their organization’s unique IT and security technologies and processes.
- Embedded Business Intelligence Engine for Dashboards and Reporting – The Embedded Business Intelligence Engine leverages the detailed System of Record generated by IR-Flow to enable enterprises to produce standard and ad hoc reports. Customers can also create dashboards for specific roles within the organization including lead analysts, SOC managers and CISOs. The combination of IR-Flow’s System of Record and the Business Intelligence Engine provide an unprecedented level of visibility and accountability for continuous improvement, audit compliance and Board of Director reporting.
“Despite their organizations deploying the best cybersecurity tools available, today’s SOC analysts are drowning under a tidal wave of security alerts – often without adequate resources to effectively triage and respond to alerts in a timely manner,” said Syncurity CEO, John Jolly. “In an environment where less than 10 percent of all security alerts are reviewed by SOC personnel, Syncurity is delivering a platform that is customizable to customers’ unique deployments and needs. We are enabling companies to better align their security resources and staff to rapidly identify and address the most critical threats.”
