Comprehensive Network Threat Analysis

Visibility is a challenge for network operators, systems managers, and cyber network defense professionals in high-speed networks. The threats live just below the surface and situational awareness of those threats is paramount for a cyber analyst. Obtaining the appropriate network or cyber intelligence from the sensor is critical to the analyst’s ability to provide effective network operations and cyber defense.

To gain this situational awareness the organization needs to understand how the network is being utilized. In this process they need to know if the utilization is appropriate or acceptable and what type of threats exist in the network. The only way to perform this analysis in high-speed networks is to automate the first level of network traffic processing.

The Bivio Networks FlowIntelligence™ custom sensor technology facilitates the in-depth analysis required for effective visibility and response. The technology performs flow collection and analysis, deep packet inspection, Layer 7 metadata extraction, cyber event and threat analysis, and cyber intelligence monitoring in a network appliance that operates at speeds from multi-gigabit to over 40 Gbps.

Advanced Threat Analysis & Cyber Event Monitoring

Cyber analysts face significant challenges in gaining situational awareness and visibility in their networks. Some of the challenges include answering questions such as:

  • How can my organization collect, query and extract network data in real-time at line speed from OSI layers 3 through 7?
  • How do I detect and analyze threats to the network in real-time?
  • How do I identify anomalous systems or applications, understand application behavior and determine insider threats to the network?
  • How do I identify tradecraft of the adversary?

Furthermore, the threats from the “bad guys” or adversary can easily overwhelm any organization. The adversaries can maneuver in cyber space faster than most organizations. In order to impact their ability to affect the organization, additional questions need to be considered, including:

  • How do we eliminate the ways the adversary can maneuver in our section of cyber space?
  • How do we determine what they are doing elsewhere against other parties and what impacts it will have on our organization?
  • How do we incorporate external threat intelligence for indications, warnings and advanced threat detection?
  • How do we affect the behavior of the adversary?
  • How do we gain situational awareness of the advanced persistent threat(s)?
  • How do I identify potential files or data payloads that may contain malware?
  • How do we effectively and efficiently perform the hunt and find process?

All of these questions are critical elements in the network or cyber intelligence analysis process. Without multi-vector sensing to defend the network, the analyst is completely blind to the adversary! As a result, the threat window remains open and the threat surface becomes expansive.

Custom Sensor Solutions for Network Threat Analysis

Bivio FlowIntelligence custom sensor solutions are ideally suited to address these challenges with extensive capabilities for in-depth advanced threat analysis and cyber event monitoring. The sensors provide the ability to collect, query and extract flows in real-time from layers 3 through 7 of the OSI stack. Sensors can detect threats to the network from external and internal sources, and offer unique deep packet inspection capabilities for layer-7 information including files that may contain malware. This becomes a powerful element of the cyber analyst’s toolkit when they can see what is beyond the standard source and destination information with port or protocol.
