Features and benefits

Investigation enrichment

Collect logs across firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDS), and other security systems programmatically, providing more diverse data to triage activities performed through security information and event management (SIEM) systems.

Threat hunting

Detect more threats in less time by automatically configuring enterprise firewalls to send events and logs to a central database, where security analysts can correlate data and determine how to respond.

Incident response

Collect and analyze historical security events from a wide variety of event and contextual data sources; and respond to new threats faster by automating blacklists, whitelists, and suspicious workloads.

Common language for translation

Give your triage systems more information by collecting logs across firewalls, IDS, and endpoint protection platforms.

Privileged access management

Streamline the rotation and management of privileged credentials to automate the prevention and remediation of high-risk activities.

Team integration

Chain workflows for modular reusability, support local directory services and access controls, and integrate external apps using application programming interfaces.
