Be it for macOS or my dog eating out of the trash, there is no such thing as a bullet-proof security policy. It’s all about creating a threshold of standards- something to work off of while simultaneously reducing overall risk (you know, like storing your trash can on the counter, for example).
It only makes sense to assume that sooner or later your company will have to handle a security incident and the subsequent recovery from any damage caused.
Creating an incident response policy before an incident occurs can help you minimize risk and ensure that you and your team are prepared. By planning your response ahead of time, you will be able to respond faster and more efficiently, and possibly even prevent additional damage from occurring.
In this blog post I’ll cover osquery’s ability to provide performant behavior and its capabilities to excel at enterprise grade requirements. Many observations covered in this blog will highlight various capabilities of osquery that should aid in your journey toward an enterprise-grade osquery deployment.
Orchestration engines such as Demisto give security professionals the freedom to integrate multiple services into coordinated, automated workflows. Simple REST APIs allow the transfer of data from one application or service to another in a reliable, straight-forward manner. With the appropriate data sources, users are enabled to create workflows and reports for incident investigation and response. In removing the human element, orchestration engines can improve the overall efficiency and consistency of incident response, while freeing up time for other tasks.
Uptycs leverages the open-source osquery agent in order to acquire real-time data about nearly any facet of your infrastructure (more about osquery here). This data is streamed, aggregated, and stored in the Uptycs backend and then made accessible via our API, allowing the integration of Uptycs data with other services.
