Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

i. How automation and integration can work together to unify people, process, and technology. The security community has begun to embrace automation as a solution to handling tedious, repetitive tasks, allowing skilled staff to focus on more strategic and advanced endeavors. As destructive threats continue to increase, automation balances machine-based analysis with human-based domain knowledge to help organizations achieve optimal workflows in the face of staff shortages and alert fatigue. This SANS survey explores some of the misconceptions and facts around automation and how it can become a natural extension of individuals and teams trying to do their day jobs more effectively.
Securing your infrastructure, your customer interactions and protecting
your data are critical to preserving your reputation and your bottom
line. Many cyber attacks remain undetected for up to eight months1
and can cost an organization an average of 11 million USD.2
Today’s cyber actors are becoming more sophisticated, agile and capable
of getting past any network security. Organizations must evolve, replacing
traditional defensive security strategies with a proactive, intelligence-driven
offense to prevent and disrupt these threats.
IBM® i2® Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next generation intelligence
solution that enables organizations to incorporate cyber threat hunting
into their security strategy and turn their defense into a proactive
offense.It helps organizations uncover critical insights about their

With Rackspace Managed Security and Compliance Assistance for GCP, Rackspace is now a leading managed security services provider that offers services on all of the major public cloud platforms. In IDC’s 2017 CloudView Survey of over 6,000 enterprise respondents, nearly 50 percent indicated concerns about security in the cloud, and about 40 percent cited superior security capabilities available from service providers as a major incentive to move to the cloud.¹ With RMS, Rackspace security experts help customers with strategic planning for best practice multi-cloud security, tactical day-to-day security monitoring and threat analysis to deter, detect and respond to potential threats around the clock.
Despite increased awareness and focus on defending against targeted attacks from both business and security leaders, organizations continue to be breached and suffer the consequences. Many of today’s security investments are simply not aligned to defend against these targeted threat vectors. Advanced threat detection and response should not be a point solution but rather a combination of technologies and core competencies. Detecting and responding to advanced threats should involve tight integration of multiple security technologies, network analysis and visibility (NAV) tools, the ability to automatically generate content such as security rules and signatures, context on attacker history, and overall customization and flexibility to ensure that the solution is fine-tuned for your specific IT environment.
As the world becomes more connected, it is no longer enough for enterprises to react once an alert indicates an attacker is inside the network. Instead, with continuous packet capture and threat feeds followed by analysis, it is now possible to hunt the attackers and locate them versus waiting for an alert.
IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis helps analysts and investigators turn large data sets into comprehensive intelligence, in near real-time. With the help of advanced analytics and visual analysis capabilities, analysts can uncover hidden connections, patterns and trends buried in disparate data. Equip analysts and those on the front line with the tools they need to generate actionable intelligence, with mission critical speed.
IBM's i2 Analyst’s Notebook offers a wide range of analysis and visualization capabilities that can aid in the identification of key actionable intelligence.
