Automated Playbooks are Essential to SOARing Successfully: VMRay Analyzer Gives you the Information to Make it Happen
Threats are increasing and qualified security personnel is difficult to get. Alert fatigue is becoming alert exhaustion. Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) is absolutely essential but it relies on quality data as input. Your SOAR analysis will only be as accurate as the dating coming in.
VMRay Analyzer gives you the data you need in a best-of-breed malware analysis, based on the most powerful sandbox on the planet, which ultimately provides you with superior verdicts and intelligence to feed your security orchestration and automation systems.
Complete your cyber posture and maximize your SOAR investment by using VMRay Analyzer as its foundation: feeding in verdicts and intelligence to drive automation, helping coordinate orchestration, and accelerating response speed and quality.
SOAR Playbooks are powerful tools for coordination but they rely on the accurate assessment of threats, which is where VMRay Analyzer steps in – providing high-level verdicts that are the starting point for the plays in your playbooks.
With hundreds of threats per week – or even per day – alert exhaustion is inevitable, even if you are fully staffed (and who is these days?). So automation is no longer a nice to have, but an absolute must-have. VMRay Analyzer’s Connectors and REST API allow you to easily connect, and then immediately reduce the volume of threats your team has to deal with by validating each of them automatically. In other words, VMRay Analyzer sorts and sifts for you, so your team is free to focus on strategic tasks.
VMRay Analyzer also assists with SOAR response and remediation by enabling deep dives, but without overwhelming you with noise. Instead, it highlights critical intelligence in the online reports, featuring screenshots of the detonation and visual flows of the monitored processes. Our proprietary VTIs are very helpful when it comes to identifying those particularly deadly zero-day threats, APTs and ransomware. VMRay Analyzer helps transform the unknown into known.
For the trickiest of threats, the deepest dive is necessary and here again, VMRay Analyzer excels. Within the online reports, detailed tabs take you down to the very lowest level of data detail including IOCs, Network behavior, AV and YARA reports, a MITRE ATT&CK matrix, and much more. For programmatic interaction and time-saving automation, the complete JSON of the analysis results, and the comprehensive Analysis Archive which has everything you might need, means you can use the Analyzer API to make VMRay Analyzer do whatever you please.
It is not easy to predict what data you might need, or in what format, so we provide you with a wide assortment of options including online and customizable PDF reports, a comprehensive JSON with every analytical detail, a complete Analysis Archive which includes IOCs, screenshots of the detonation, memory dumps and much more. Not only does your SOAR system get the verdicts and intelligence that it needs, but SIEM, Reporting, Archiving and other systems can be fed too.
The VMRay – Cortex XSOAR Connector enables users to design playbooks that involve analyzing a file in the VMRay Platform and retrieving the analysis results and associated threat intelligence. Playbooks powered by the VMRay – Cortex XSOAR Connector help accelerate incident response and make security operations more scalable and efficient.
The VMRay – IBM Resilient Connector enables users to design dynamic playbooks that involve analyzing a file in VMRay Analyzer, retrieving the analysis results and viewing the associated analysis reports. Dynamic playbooks powered by the VMRay – IBM Resilient Connector help accelerate incident response and drive down the average time to remediation.
The VMRay – InsightConnect Plugin enables security teams to design workflows that involve analyzing a file in VMRay Analyzer and retrieving the analysis results and associated threat intelligence. VMRay Analyzer can be used as part of several InsightConnect workflows to mitigate the risk of potentially malicious files.
The VMRay – Phantom App enables security teams to design playbooks in Phantom that involve analyzing a file in VMRay Analyzer and retrieving the analysis results and associated threat intelligence. VMRay Analyzer can be used as part of several Phantom playbooks including Phishing Investigation and Response or Ransomware Investigation and Containment to mitigate the risk of potentially malicious files.
The VMRay – Swimlane Connector enables users to design playbooks that involve analyzing potentially malicious files in VMRay Analyzer and retrieving the analysis results and associated threat intelligence. Playbooks powered by the VMRay – Swimlane Connector help automate the incident response process for faster and more efficient advanced threat protection.
ThreatConnect uniquely synergizes SOAR, TIP, and Risk Quantification capabilities in a single platform to provide decision and operational support. Our VMRay Analyzer ThreatConnect Playbook App augments ThreatConnect by providing threat intelligence and deeper dive analyses based on our best-of-breed sandbox, which in turn enables more informed decisions that can serve as the building blocks for greater orchestration and automation within ThreatConnect. In addition, EDR and SIEM workflows can be enhanced with more accurate triaging and the elimination of false positives.
From initial contact to successful implementation, we support you every step of the way with complete support, comprehensive documentation (over 1500 pages in HTML and PDF format), and leading-edge research: constantly updating you about the latest threats, from our VMRay Labs Team.
