Information the Lastline Product Collects

Lastline analyzes the traffic on a network and is designed to detect threats posed by malware, as well as communication with Malicious hosts on the internet. Lastline will collect and analyze certain Artifacts (files, URLs, as well as web and email content that could pose a threat to the organizations) that are transmitted via web traffic and as email attachments.

Lastline takes steps to avoid collecting information from our customer’s network that could personally identify their end users or collect or view any data that could be reasonably associated to such information.  However, the data we collect through our Services to identify security risks may also contain some Personal Data (i.e. username, email address or IP address). This information is only used in protecting the IT infrastructure of the organization

Information Lastline Inspects

Network traffic, including:

  • The domain names resolved on the network including the host (IP Address) that resolved the domain.
  • The content of some network connections that could pose a risk to an organization.
  • Network flows to which Lastline network sensors have visibility.
  • Executable programs, scripts, documents or other potential Artifacts that may contain executable code downloaded via the web (if Lastline network sensors are deployed) or sent as email messages and attachments (if Lastline email sensors are deployed).
    • This includes email headers and any potentially malicious content in the email body.
    • Refer to the Lastline Technical Support Knowledge Base for explicit details on files Lastline is able to analyze.

Email contents, including:

  • Header information from email messages inspected by the Lastline Sensor or submitted via the API.
  • In hosted Deployments: Potentially Suspicious or Malicious Email Attachments
  • On-Premises Artifact Sharing Deployments: Any submitted Suspicious and Malicious content.

Information Lastline Retains

  • Alert information, as well as activity that could become an alert, is collected whenever a computer is attached to a customer’s network and performs Malicious activity for the purpose of providing organizations with meaningful reports regarding their security posture.
    • In On-Premises deployments, this data is stored on the local Manager, and not share with Lastline
    • In Hosted deployments, this data is stored in the Lastline Data Center.
  • Lastline will retain versions of all content submitted to the Lastline Hosted infrastructure, directly leveraging the UI or via the API. Artifacts are retained if submitted via the API, unless the delete after analysis flag has been set in the API call. Artifacts are always retained when submitted via the UI.

  • Lastline may exchange some Malicious Artifacts and Artifact metadata submitted to the Lastline Platform with other cyber security vendors, with whom we have a confidentiality agreement, to allow both vendors to improve and enhance their respective technologies to defend against new threats or attack vectors.
