Lastline DefenderTM gives you the network visibility and detection you need to contain attacks before they disrupt your business. It enables your under-resourced security teams to stop the most advanced threats from entering or operating within your entire network, including on-premises and cloud workloads.
Lastline Defender’s unique approach to analyzing both network activity and malicious behaviors significantly improves your cyber resilience and reduces your cyber risk. It helps you secure your enterprise across the entire attack chain:
To help you prevent advanced threats from operating in your network, Lastline Defender uses AI in a unique way. Lastline Defender learns from both Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) and malicious behaviors to eliminate false positives and deliver the highest fidelity insights possible into threats. This innovative approach to network traffic analytics provides the critical context that other technologies lack.
Your existing security team and security controls are more effective on day one with Lastline Defender. Its deterministic alerts eliminate the false positives and generic alerts that other tools generate. With this smarter threat intelligence, your security team will finally have the confidence to automate many of your threat response workflows. This means better enterprise security with fewer resources.
Most AI-based network security products apply AI to network traffic only, without an understanding of malicious behaviors. This probabilistic approach leads to many false positives – after all, not all anomalies are the result of attacks. Applying AI techniques to network traffic will inevitably find anomalous patterns of behavior within the network traffic – that’s what AI is designed to do. It is virtually impossible for other AI-based tools to understand if the detected anomaly is malicious or benign. As a result, they offer low-fidelity, probabilistic alerts that require hours of investigation and slow down incident response.
Lastline Defender is a unique approach to identifying network breaches. We use a combination of three complementary techniques to deliver superior AI-powered network security:
Other AI-based network security products rely on less accurate techniques. These probabilistic approaches lead to many false positives requiring additional investigation by your security team.
Lastline Defender is different. It leverages AI that is automatically trained both on network traffic and malicious behaviors. This unique combination enables deterministic detections and eliminates false positives.
Lastline Defender improves threat detection by monitoring your network activity, including low-level events and seemingly benign activity, to uncover all malicious incidents. It analyzes a range of traffic, including:
Lastline Defender’s network traffic analytics provides a detailed understanding of a threat’s scope by identifying compromised systems, communication between local and external systems, and data sets that might have been accessed or uploaded. It facilitates hunting of latent threats resulting from file downloads, website content, and email attachments that are now hiding in your network.
Lastline Defender also gives you immediate visibility into malicious activity entering and operating within your AWS environment, including:
Lastline Defender also gives you unmatched visibility into threats attempting to enter your network by incorporating our industry-leading, patented sandbox technology. It deconstructs every malicious behavior engineered into an object entering via mail or web traffic, such as a file attachment or download. It sees all instructions that a program executes, all memory content, and all operating system activity.
This visibility into a network breach enables your security team to see a complete inventory of unique file behaviors that other tools fail to detect, such as activity observed when executing programs, opening documents, unpacking archives, and rendering web content.
Lastline Defender’s superior visibility also makes the analysis much harder to evade. It detects advanced malware that’s engineered to evade sandboxes, next-generation firewalls, and other next-gen tools.
The Lastline® Global Threat Intelligence Network, is a repository of tens of millions of indicators of compromise and historic threat data for files, domain names, and IP addresses. It is continuously updated with new threat artifacts and the latest intelligence communicated to partners and customers as new threats (and new relationships among existing threats) emerge.
As a result, all Lastline customers and partners are immediately instrumented to detect any malicious object used to attack another member of our community. This “network effect” significantly increases your detection accuracy and reduces the need for you to conduct your own threat research before responding.
Lastline Defender generates a dynamic blueprint of an advanced threat as it moves laterally across your network, both on-premises and cloud infrastructure. This context enables your security team to quickly understand the scope of the network breach by providing complete visibility of all activity generated by an attack, including:
It analyzes anomalous traffic and unknown objects in real time, not hours or days, to speed up notification of your security teams and their remediation efforts.
Lastline’s proven approach links the traffic crossing your perimeter and the traffic moving laterally in your network to identify relationships among seemingly unrelated malicious activities. This includes anomalous behavior of systems, services, and applications as well as additional IOCs not previously associated with the threat. This data consolidation helps you spot elements of an advanced threat that you otherwise would have missed and eliminates the endless isolated, generic alerts that require investigation.
Your security team faces many challenges as it attempts to stop lateral movement of advanced threats:
Lastline Defender generates the highest fidelity insights possible, giving your incident response team the accuracy it needs to automate aspects of your response protocols including the blocking of malicious activity.
Lastline Defender has a modular, scalable architecture and offers a rich set of open APIs that facilitate an easy integration of the product into existing systems and workflows. Powerful, built-in integrations with products from our Technology Alliance Partner ecosystem (such as SIEMs, NGFWs, UTMS, and endpoint agents) complement the APIs.
You have the choice of using the built-in integration offered by our Technology Partners or you can use our robust APIs to optimize your current technologies, staff, and processes.
You have complete flexibility on how you deploy Lastline Defender in your environment. The only component you need to deploy on-premises are Lastline Sensors, as physical or virtual appliances.
The other management and analysis components can reside either in the cloud (your cloud, the Lastline cloud, or a service provider’s cloud) or on-premises. Deploy Lastline Sensors wherever you need unmatched visibility of advanced threats.
