Cyber Threat Management

Advanced Threat Intelligence

Nuspire’s Advanced Cyber Threat Intelligence is a blend of technical, tactical, operational, and strategic cyber threat intelligence that's only available to devices enrolled in the Cyber Threat Monitoring service.

Technical Cyber Threat Intelligence

Nuspire's Technical Cyber Threat Intelligence is created through a propriety blending, prioritization, and validation of social feeds, commercial feeds, and the aggregated information received from tens of thousands of diverse security manufacture devices deployed around the world.

As a global Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) and Cloud SIEM provider, Nuspire has tens of thousands of diverse NextGen and UTM/firewall appliances that feed billions of security context-rich log events into the nuSIEM solution every day. Many of the manufacturers’ devices that feed these rich security metadata logs into the SIEM are active members of the Cyber Threat Alliance.

Nuspire further utilizes automated methods to collect IP reputation information that indicates a lower level of trust should be used for addresses that are not specifically known as malicious. This information is combined with other alert methods to build correlated events that trigger Nuspire Security Operations Center (SOC) engineers who investigate the communications. The continuous feed of actively updated security log metadata in conjunction with existing IP reputation data from cybersecurity threat feeds, known compromised internet addresses, and even threat intelligence from Darknet (beyond the surface web), all feed into the big data nuSIEM for normalization, correlation and aggregation. Once combined and ranked according to proprietary techniques, Nuspire can utilize big data infrastructure to provide real-time analytics and alerts on the stream of logs received.

Tactical & Operational Cyber Threat Intelligence

Nuspire's Security Analytics Team (SAT) members follow industry-specific trends, security issues, government intelligence, and other deep Internet data sources that may affect customers. Research findings are then used to further tune alerts and algorithms. Tactical threat intelligence is used to track threat actors to help predict attacks through their techniques and procedures. Operational threat intelligence is also utilized when Nuspire discovers actionable intelligence of a pending attack on a customer or industry. Discovery of tactical and operational threat intelligence issues that affect monitored devices generate tickets for review and discussion with the partner through the Trax™ Ticketing system.

Strategic Cyber Threat Intelligence

Nuspire's SAT provides informational notices through the Trax™ portal about high level issues faced by a multitude of industries, technologies, and organization sizes. This information can be used by executives and their boards to help guide an organization in reducing long-term cybersecurity risk.

This blending of real-time, third-party security intelligence (identified by devices placed all around the globe), databases of poor reputation or compromised hosts, advisories and bulletins driven from FBI active investigations of cyber threats, and Nuspire's own security research represents the Advanced Cyber Intelligence. These components combine into threat intelligence for normalization, correlation and aggregation. Once combined and ranked according to proprietary techniques, Nuspire can utilize big data infrastructure to provide real time analytics and alerts on the stream of logs or to specific industry types as part of the CTM Service.
