ExtraHop Integrates With FireEye to Defend Against Advanced Persistent Threats

ExtraHop announced an integration of the ExtraHop wire data analytics platform with the FireEye Threat Analytics Platform (TAP). Through this integration, which leverages the ExtraHop Open Data Stream technology to push wire data into the FireEye TAP, IT security teams are armed with near real-time attack visibility to more effectively detect and defend against advanced persistent threats. The integration of wire data from ExtraHop into the FireEye TAP delivers this next-generation visibility, arming IT security teams with an enriched security dataset, including the events and metrics needed to detect advanced persistent threats. ExtraHop wire data adds a new dimension of context to event streams being fed into TAP, which can then leverage rich insights from FireEye into threat actor profiles and behavior. This critical new data set cannot be sourced from machine or log data, but when combined and correlated together, ushers in a new era of near real-time threat analytics. The integration sends the following crucial events and metrics to the FireEye TAP: DNS activity, including domain look-ups and possible command-and-control communications; inbound and outbound HTTP payload data, including MD5 sums and threat signatures; session tracking, such as unexpected SSH connections, from external or internal clients; reconnaissance activity as attackers probe internal networks from compromised systems; and real-time data consumption to instantly recognize and alert on abnormal data rates indicating exfiltration from any system at any time.
