Enabling its customers to defend their organizations against advanced threats: Lastline

As everything is going digital, modern companies are suffering from many network security problems without even realizing it. The situation turns worse when these problems go unresolved, they can create doorways for attackers to breach a company’s security infrastructure and steal data.

Not one, but there are far too many potential security problems a company will face. But in the end, what matters is that organizations must enhance their security measures, properly align and continuously adjust their activities so they can mitigate or even prevent the most prevalent threats to network security.  It is obvious that they can’t do this alone, and partnering with an expert network security services provider could solve everything. In the light of foregoing, we introduce Lastline.

Lastline® is revolutionizing the way companies protect their networks and email. Its AI-power network security solutions detect attacks and malicious network activity before suffering a costly data breach. And it enables you to do this with fewer resources and at lower cost than existing security tools.

In 2011, Drs. Engin Kirda, Christopher Kruegel, and Giovanni Vigna, three of the world’s most influential academic researchers in cybersecurity, founded Lastline. The company’s vision is informed by the founders’ world-renowned research on network security, malware analysis, and evasion techniques, academically-rooted rigor, innovative approaches to network breach protection, and a passion to improve enterprise cybersecurity.

Lastline’s unmatched level of visibility, accuracy, and effectiveness, and its focus on CISOs’ ever-increasing pressure to secure company networks and assets, has resulted in the company providing specific, actionable, context-rich threat intelligence and decreased data loss to many of the largest and most successful companies around the world.

The Lastline Threat Intelligence Advantage

Lastline’s world-class researchers investigate unique malware and attacks every day and incorporate that into all Lastline products to insure you’re always protected against the newest and novel threats that actors continue to develop in the hopes of successfully gaining a foothold inside your network.

Too many security tools ignore or misidentify the malicious behaviors that are essential to understanding the scope and intent of an attack. In contrast, the power of Lastline’s threat intelligence focuses on detailing the behaviors that advanced attacks exhibit. Armed with this intelligence, your security team can secure your email, web, cloud, and network against advanced malware-based attacks faster, and with fewer resources.

Network Detection and Response Platform

Lastline Defender™, a Network Detection and Response (NDR) platform, detects and contains sophisticated threats before they disrupt your business.

Its network security software delivers the cybersecurity industry’s highest fidelity insights into advanced threats entering or operating in your on-premises and cloud network, enabling your security team to respond faster and more effectively to threats.

The Lastline Advantage

Complete Threat Detection: Lastline’s unequaled malware analysis deconstructs every behavior engineered into an object entering via mail or web traffic. It sees all instructions that a program executes all memory content, and all operating system activity. This visibility enables us to accurately detect zero-days, ransomware, spear phishing, account takeover, and more.

Unequaled Visibility: The software provides visibility into every element of a cyber-attack (see screen shot), including traffic crossing the network perimeter and traffic moving laterally inside your network. It achieves this by blending malware analysis, described above, with three additional, complementary AI-powered detection technologies:

  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDPS) – Detects threats attempting to enter your network
  • Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) – Detects malicious activity operating within the network, leveraging its malware analysis to distinguish between malicious and benign anomalies
  • Global Threat Intelligence – Lastline have the most comprehensive repository of threat behaviors and indicators of compromise, automatically updated and shared with all customers to speed detection of new attacks

Automated Response

  • Lastline provide an intrusion blueprint, detailed timeline, detailed malicious behaviors and other insights needed to completely remediate an attack
  • Lastline automates protection by integrating with your third-party products, incident response workflows, and custom applications throughout your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud. Existing security controls can automatically send unknown objects and websites to Lastline for analysis and receive actionable threat intelligence to automate response workflows.

Minimal False Positives:Lastline’s AI is automatically trained both on network traffic and malicious behaviors, enabling very accurate, deterministic detections and nearly eliminating false positives.
