There has been a lot of excitement and buzz in the industry about Big Data, and how it can be used to amplify Security Intelligence to provide greater protection against advanced threats, fraud, and insider threats.  IBM’s integrated Security Intelligence and Big Data solution does all of this and more.

Using our solution, you can identify suspicious external domains and endpoints that your systems and users are connecting to, identify dangerous external command and control domains, and find users who are prone to attacks such as spear phishing due to their propensity to click on suspicious url’s. This enables organizations not only to identify and mitigate risk from typical security events and information, but also help identify enterprise risks from the massive amount of non-security specific data.

But don’t take it from me, seeing is believing.  For your technical interest, check out this short demonstration given by Jose Bravo of the IBM Security Tiger Team that showcases the power of IBM QRadar Security Intelligence working with Big Data.  In this video, you can see how IBM Security QRadar and the Big Data Platform:

  • Investigates IP addresses, domains, and registration data to determine which are suspicious in nature and could be the source of malware and other types of attacks
  • Analyzes log data and extracts a list of domains accessed by users in your organization showing user information, geographic location of the domain, url’s, ports, and more
  • Shares data with the BigInsights component of our Big Data Platform, adds data from IBM X-Force Trend and Risk Report, and allows you to identify risky users, risky domains they are accessing, and risky IP addresses.
  • Puts this information into reference sets that are exported back into IBM Security QRadar so new rules can be created to identify potentially harmful behavior and take action ahead of the threat.

X-Force Threat Intelligence Index 2024 reveals stolen credentials as top risk, with AI attacks on the horizon

4 min read - Every year, IBM X-Force analysts assess the data collected across all our security disciplines to create the IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Index, our annual report that plots changes in the cyber threat landscape to reveal trends and help clients proactively put security measures in place. Among the many noteworthy findings in the 2024 edition of the X-Force report, three major trends stand out that we’re advising security professionals and CISOs to observe: A sharp increase in abuse of valid accounts…

Web injections are back on the rise: 40+ banks affected by new malware campaign

8 min read - Web injections, a favored technique employed by various banking trojans, have been a persistent threat in the realm of cyberattacks. These malicious injections enable cyber criminals to manipulate data exchanges between users and web browsers, potentially compromising sensitive information. In March 2023, security researchers at IBM Security Trusteer uncovered a new malware campaign using JavaScript web injections. This new campaign is widespread and particularly evasive, with historical indicators of compromise (IOCs) suggesting a possible connection to DanaBot — although we…

Accelerating security outcomes with a cloud-native SIEM

5 min read - As organizations modernize their IT infrastructure and increase adoption of cloud services, security teams face new challenges in terms of staffing, budgets and technologies. To keep pace, security programs must evolve to secure modern IT environments against fast-evolving threats with constrained resources. This will require rethinking traditional security strategies and focusing investments on capabilities like cloud security, AI-powered defense and skills development. The path forward calls on security teams to be agile, innovative and strategic amidst the changes in technology…
