GAVS’ analysts perform round-the-clock alert monitoring and analysis, with massive scalability to adapt to spikes in threat volumes. GAVS uses the monitoring features of its leading-edge AIOps platform ZIF, but can also leverage any in-house AI-based monitoring solution, and fine-tune suitably to the baselines & challenges evidenced in the environment.
The team of cybersecurity experts detects intrusions and conducts static & dynamic analysis to examine a sample’s behavior. The team analyzes each of the steps in the expanded kill chain model and builds capabilities to detect and mitigate attacks within each of the steps. Behavior analysis is done by dedicated SOC analysts who understand the environment’s unique characteristics.
Our threat hunting experts go beyond log sources, and proactively investigate the enterprise infrastructure to identify potential compromise, or for a breach activity that a hacker might initiate at a later stage. They use manual and automated approaches to look for suspicious actors that bypass security controls.
GAVS’ Threat Intelligence service helps accelerate the detection of anomalous activity with proprietary threat intelligence, specific to the enterprise’s threat landscape. Threat intelligence aggregation data is produced from various validated threat sources sharing Indicators of Compromise (IOC) information. Analysts then enrich internal alerts with this external information and context, thereby accelerating triage, scoping, and containment of the incident.
GAVS provides 24×7 incident response coverage by bringing together the automation and remediation features of the ZIF AIOps Platform, and a team of seasoned incident responders with rich response experience in major breaches. They can rapidly investigate, contain the attack, and take remedial measures, working in tandem with the enterprise’s IT team. ZIF automation features include workflows and playbooks for routine aspects of incident management, triaging, and response.
