DFLabs Launches the First Security Automation and Orchestration Platform Based Upon Supervised Active Intelligence™

IncMan 4.0, DFLabs’ flagship platform, to help cybersecurity operations and incident response teams tackle automation challenges with machine learning

Boston – February 7, 2017 – DFLabs, the leader in Security Automation and Orchestration Technology, announced today the launch of a landmark release of its flagship platform, IncMan 4.0. Based upon an innovative machine learning and incident correlation engine DFLabs offers a force multiplier solution that helps security operations and incident response teams quickly orchestrate the triage, containment, reporting, and remediation of data breaches and other cyber incidents while gradually guiding them on the maturity path to full automation.

The pace of cyber attacks combined with data breach and privacy regulations are making security operations platforms mandatory for organizations of all sizes. DFLabs has conducted months of discussions with dozens of Fortune 1000 CISOs showing that taking the “human” completely out of security automation may be dangerous. Significant concerns with making a sudden switch to fully unattended automation include complex issues such as “Trust on Input,” e.g. If the input data is incorrect, the output could cause even more damage to the business than the incident itself and “Proof of Evidence,” e.g. An unattended full automation response computer can not be a case for a compliance violation and can leave CISOs exposed to avoidable and excessive legal liability.

With IncMan 4.0, DFLabs delivers on its vision for Supervised Active Intelligence™ (SAI) driven by the industry’s first Dual Mode Playbooks (Machine-to-Human and/or Machine-to-Machine). IncMan includes hundreds of playbooks – based on U.S. and UE international industry regulations (including GDPR), standards and best practices. These playbooks are automatically assigned and dynamically applied to an incident to provide the Security Operations Center (SOC) and Incident Response (IR) teams full control of the situation until they are ready for the next step, at which point the machine learning algorithm takes over the process and brings the organization to the next level of automation.

“Progress of enterprise security organizations towards orchestration spanning multiple functional teams is advanced in part by deep, console-based platforms,” said Dan Cummins, Senior Analyst Security, 451 Research. “SOC product buyers should focus not only on acquiring programmable, process-centric expertise of current practitioners but also on establishing an agile foundation to meet future cyber security risks as well.”

IncMan 4.0 is also the only solution available with an innovative Knowledge Base that reduces the amount of time spent on the lifecycle of an incident. The Knowledge Base is managed and updated by the DFlabs dedicated research team and includes threat catalogs, frameworks, standards, regulations and more. Incident response orchestration can be enhanced with actionable intelligence to provide effective direction in assisting the SOC and IR teams in creating and executing a response plan as well as for conducting risk analysis and demonstrating compliance with state, federal and international breach regulations.

A complete and thorough orchestrated incident response plan utilizing IncMan 4.0 has shown to save many organizations significant time in mitigating security issues, resulting in up to 80% reduction in reaction time.

“CISO’s are under heavy scrutiny and pressure to adopt the latest innovation in security automation, yet they are not ready to suddenly and irreversibly replace humans with technology. They must have the ability for their security teams to supervise the intelligent role of the machine – at least at the beginning of their journey,” said Dario Forte, Founder and CEO, DFLabs and internationally recognized ISO standards expert. “This is the basis for the design and development of our Supervised Active Intelligence paradigm that we believe is the only effective path to full automation.”

IncMan 4.0 offers a single, transparent “pane of glass” through which organizations can automate and orchestrate their entire security operations. It is an out-of-the-box platform featuring an intuitive interface and workflow combined with flexible use cases and reporting to meet the needs of any industry. Triage, Containment and Remediation operations can be navigated through the configurable, role-based dashboard. In addition to the Dual Mode Playbooks and Knowledge Base, other innovative features include:

• Integration Ecosystem: Any data source can be easily consumed and IncMan 4.0 features native integrations with the entire cybersecurity ecosystem of data sources to “connect all the dots” within the security operations and incident response process from end-point detection and response and malware analysis to threat intelligence services, through support for STIX and TAXII OpenIOC, and IODEF, as well as integration with commercial threat intelligence, feeds.
• Correlation Visualization Engine: Visualizing the correlation between incidents and artifacts allows analysts to promptly apply industry recognized response and mitigation actions.
• Threat Intelligence Sharing: This correlation capability also ensures that both corporate and government data security organizations can effectively and bi-directionally share new threat intelligence and after action reports.

“Automation and machine learning are in strong demand in InfoSec. On the other hand, we should not forget that Machine Learning and Artifical Intelligence are still relatively new to get applied in businesses. Model design is crucial to consider social factors, human judgment on values, and sensitivity for possible bias. That’s why a guided path to full automation could be advisable, especially for critical applications such as security operations,” said Dr. Anastassia Lauterbach, Advisory Board Member of DFlabs.

Demo and trial of IncMan 4.0 are available immediately. DFLabs Professional Services Team is also available for Breach Readiness and IR Plans to help organizations achieve the appropriate plan, whether it’s guiding security teams through the process or augmenting their internal team.

DFLabs Announces Availability of New Incident and Breach Response Playbook Set, Based on U.S. and EU Regulations

The new playbook set, called IncMan RP, is one of the largest data sets on the market, granting companies of any size the opportunity to get cyber incidents quickly under control.

Milan, Italy; Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 21, 2016

DFLabs, the leader in incident response automation and orchestration technology, has announced the availability of a new playbook set called “IncMan RP,” based on U.S. and EU regulations and industry standards. With this new set, customers will have immediate access to a large number of pre-built incident and data breach response actions to follow. The playbook is divided into state/federal, industry sector and type of incident/breach segments and works with both human and machine based processes.

The new IncMan playbook set contains automated and semi-automated workflows and procedures for responding to security incidents and privacy breaches. Also included are associated flow charts which show the movement of activities.

Breach data items and related actions in the playbook set are compliant with U.S. state and territory breach notice laws, as well as HITECH/HIPAA Act breach notice requirements. Updates are provided over time via DFLabs annual subscription, in compliance with any other breach notice laws or regulations that are created. The same steps are followed in regards to EU GDPR breach requirements, with updates being applied over time regarding any additional breach notice laws or regulations that are created in EU countries.

“This is the first playbook set in the market with such a large data set and flexibility, and it is able to be used in both large and mid-size corporations, directly or via MSSP,” said Dario Forte, founder and CEO of DFLabs. “With DFLabs’ IncMan, the security operations and incident response team will be able to automate both human and machine actions and have cyber incidents quickly under control.”

According to the Ponemon Institute, although the average cost of mitigating a breach is up 29% since 2013 (at about $4 million per incident), there was good news in that companies that have incident response plans and teams in place saw an average savings of $400,000 over companies that did not. Furthermore, the active data breach and privacy regulations in the U.S and E.U. are making incident response platforms mandatory. DFLabs’ IncMan is the leading platform for incident response automation and orchestration, and can help enterprises prepare, respond and be compliant.
