File Integrity Monitoring
SIEM Installation & Management
We provide full installation of SIEM (Security Incident Event Management) services for your organization. That means we set up the hardware and software necessary for the security of your system, then monitor and manage that software utilizing our dedicated Security Operations Center (SOC) Team.
Too many SIEM services just send you a barrage of monitoring alerts, which without context quickly become white noise. Understanding the context of your business is crucial to effectively managing your SIEM, which is why BitLyft is dedicated to partnering with your company.
We learn the unique fingerprint of your business’ needs and behaviors, and tweak and tune our SIEM platform to fit your company context. By understanding your company, we understand the threats to your company better, and can stop them in their tracks before they become a serious problem.
Bitlyft makes enterprise compliance easier.
Regardless of the regulations your company needs to follow, we provide pre-configured compliance automated modules that address many of the most common frameworks. Our resident compliance experts will consistently analyze your systems and processes to ensure that you’re up to code. And, if you’re not, we’ll provide a strategic roadmap to help you get there.
Bitlyft’s technology can be configured to provide regular reporting to show strengths & weaknesses in your compliance issues. Our continual compliance monitoring lets you know if there are any changes to your compliance status, and provide a plan for getting back on track.
Some threats are easily recognized. Others have never been encountered, or categorized in any sort of threat database. How well, and how quickly, can your security respond to an unknown threat?
Bitlyft offers Zero-Day solutions for businesses with top of the line SIEM technology that recognizes the normal patterns of your system… and can respond to deviations from those norms whether that activity is a previously known threat or not.
With active monitoring, and detection, we are able to see threats as they try to penetrate the environment. This means that those seeking to take advantage of previously undiscovered security vulnerabilities are recognized and dealt with immediately.
24/7 SOC Monitoring
Bitlyft’s team is always monitoring your system for threats, so that you can rest easy.
Security Operations Center as a service model provides a fully-managed team that is trained to detect, respond and neutralize security threats 24/7. A qualified senior analyst is always on call to keep an eye on any deviations from your business’ unique data fingerprint, and is able to identify and remediate threats as they occur.
Our analysts partner with our clients. Because they know our clients’ systems to the level that they do, they’ve proven that they can find other similar threats for other clients. That keeps us proactive and effective when dealing with any potential threats to your environment.
Cut the mean time to detection and response down from days to seconds with our 24/7 SOC team who actively monitors and performs real-time threat remediation.
Because of our team’s true visibility into all elements of your data systems, they are able to look across all of your networks, servers and endpoints to remediate threats when and where they occur.
Our threat remediation process:
- Step 1: SIEM software monitors your entire infrastructure and cloud systems.
- Step 2: BitLyft teams and technology identify anomalous activity.
- Step 3: We determine how that activity deviates from the status quo.
- Step 4: We determine the threat level of the activity, whether the activity is known to be benign or malevolent, or whether the activity is previously unknown.
- Step 5: If the activity is determined to be a threat, alarms will be sent and threat remediation will be triggered.
- Step 6: Depending on the level of clearance and the seriousness of the threat, BitLyft will either contact you to determine next actions, or proactively stop the activity.
- Step 7: Determine the conditions of the threat, and put safeguards in place to avoid similar threats in the future.
User Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA)
You touch certain files every day. You have patterns of behavior that we can determine and measure. It’s your company’s unique data fingerprint. And every data user in your company has a unique data fingerprint as well.
Because BitLyft takes the time to understand that data fingerprint, we understand your user behavior. And we understand when there’s a departure from that behavior. Understanding these User Entity Behavior Analytics helps us to be better equipped to secure your systems.
Using our machine learning technology, BitLyft utilizes an Artificial Intelligence Engine to collaborate accounts into individual user identities. These can then be used to analyze user entity behavior, recognize behavioral anomalies, and discover patterns of behavior that are a risk to the environment.
L7 Application Monitoring
Your data system has various layers of security, like an onion. And threats can be present at any one of them.
There are 7 layers in the Open System Interconnection (OSI) model of system organization:
- Layer 1: Physical - This is where data is vulnerable at the physical level. Stuff like cables, cards, and other hardware.
- Layer 2: Data Link - This is where data packets become bits, and where networks get permission to access and transmit files.
- Layer 3: Network - At this layer, data is transmitted from node to node. This is the layer where switches and routers should be monitored for malevolent activity
- Layer 4: Transport - This is where data is completely transferred between different hosts.
- Layer 5: Session - At this layer, connections between systems and applications are coordinated and managed.
- Layer 6: Presentation - This layer, (aka the Syntax layer) is where data is translated into a form that the user-facing application can accept.
- Layer 7: Application - This is where the data meets the user. Data privacy and user authentication, service quality, and any specific data needs of the application in question.
Where most security companies may only focus on 2-3 of these layers, Bitlyft Cybersecurity has broad and deep network visibility and threat monitoring that discovers attacks at any level.
It’s one thing to be able to address threats after they happen… but a mature security solution invests in proactive evidentiary discovery of threats before they become a serious threat to your data, your employees’ data, and your customers data.
The average log monitoring service does not look into the custom fingerprint of your network, or your data use, to understand your organization’s unique context. As a result, they tell you about the threats after the fact, but aren’t able to tell you any of the potential reasons why the threats happened in the first place… or how to prevent them in the future.
At Bitlyft, we are dedicated to determining the nature, cause, and extent of suspicious activity on your data systems. We have the tools, technology, and expertise to collect and analyze essential traffic data, (including information from event logs and forensic sensors,) to quickly identify potential threats and determine the best way to avoid such activity moving forward.
Log Management & Reporting
There are plenty of log management services out there that will store your logs and send you regular reports. But without data correlation and establishing the overall context of your system, those reports will not reflect whether the data you are monitoring is high value or low value.
Your system is constantly generating data, which can be accessed from multiple endpoints… places like firewalls, routers, servers and computers. But not all endpoints provide high value data for threat reporting.
By being able to correlate your system’s data, we can pinpoint areas of concern so that threats can be uncovered quickly. Imagine your data as pieces of a jigsaw puzzle: if you receive your logs as pieces in a big pile, it would be harder to pinpoint an error than if someone took the time to assemble most of the puzzle for you. When you see the big picture of your system’s data context, it’s easier to spot the data that doesn’t fit.
Logs are collected and stored for fast review, allowing us to determine and filter out the most relevant logs for effective reporting.
File Integrity Monitoring
Losing important files is more than a mere annoyance. Not only can it take hours for traditional IT solutions to locate and reestablish missing files, unexplained file manipulation could be a sign of some serious security issues, and may even impact your regulatory compliance.
With our File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) processes, we can keep track of your important files, and monitor any activity associated with those files. With all elements of your file tracked and recorded, we can determine whether the file’s behavior makes sense in the context of your organization’s data context.
Our system protects files where they are stored and alerts us to malware-related registry changes, improper access of confidential files, and theft of sensitive data.
Advanced Network Analytics
When it comes to understanding the security of your networks and systems, it’s all about visibility. Not just visibility into the traffic that’s currently on your systems, but the data that enters and leaves your environment as well. The overall context of your organization’s data.
We monitor and analyze your users’ authorizations and activity. We keep an eye on the origination and destination of the data on your network. We watch geographic and device authorizations to make sure that users are not signing in from outside your authorized locations or devices.
By increasing the breadth and depth of visibility within your network we improve detection accuracy and make finding and neutralizing threats faster than ever before.
Today’s IT landscape is different than it was just a few years ago. Where it was once easy and expected for your IT systems to be consolidated on-prem, now much of our technical processes and systems exist in the cloud. With more cloud based systems to work from, it’s easy to lose visibility into your data, access to that data, and the possible threats that can affect it.
That’s why it’s important to make sure that, across all of your cloud-based systems, you ensure that the right people have the right access. You’ll need a SIEM platform to monitor and correlate the data from all of your endpoints. And you’ll need specialized analysts who can examine threatening behavior and write code to neutralize, stopping threats before they impact your business, your employees, and your clients.
Everyone’s cloud-based IT architecture is different. And some clouds are more mature than others. Regardless of your industry or needs, Bitlyft Cybersecurity can help provide security for your decentralized data by detecting and neutralizing threats across all of the cloud infrastructures, distributed IT environments, and cloud applications that you use.
