Your Challenges

Your SOC team is overwhelmed by an overloaded SIEM

Most SOC teams are fighting fires with never enough staff, never enough time, and never enough visibility or certainty about what’s going on. With network, endpoint and cloud security solutions sounding alarms multiple times daily, it’s all but impossible to quickly determine what is real and what is a false alarm. You lack the experts to manage these events as quickly as they need to. There simply aren’t enough security analysts to do the job. There are plenty of security solutions out there; all claiming to have their own “unique” approach to mitigate or stop cyber attacks. At the end of the day, however, most of the products and solutions only raise alarms and blow whistles, passing the ball to the SOC team to do all of the hard work.

You don’t have control over security in the cloud

Relying on your cloud service provider’s security services is insufficient. Any provider will tell you that securing the cloud environment is a shared responsibility between cloud service provider and customer, and the responsibility for specifically securing web applications is the sole responsibility of the customer. And although the industry as a whole has become better at protecting lower-level network and server resources, as attackers look for targets, they are moving up the application stack. This partnership between client and provider requires the client to take preventative actions to protect their data. While major providers like Box, Dropbox, Microsoft, and Google do have standardized procedures to secure their side, fine grain control is up to you, the client.

You have to comply with GDPR, PCI DSS, e-Privacy, DigiD, SOX, NIST, …

GDPR requires companies to give full disclosure on data breach details within 72 hours. Without having the right tools in place, this is an impossible task. Payment providers face strong regulations for processing credit card data (PCI DSS). These require automated intrusion detection and response systems.

Your WAF isnt blocking all attacks, it's just listening.

It’s 2017. People fly drones these days, yet we still think that walls will protect us from malicious outsiders. It’s no different in web application security, where age-old technologies are used to protect ever more complex applications. The focus we put on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability. A web application firewall (WAF) is only as good as its signature base and pattern-matching engine, and bypassing WAF filtering is an active topic of security research. WAFs intercept requests to a potentially vulnerable web application by applying rules to evaluate whether a request contains input that might exploit the application; this process requires tedious configuration, and WAFs may fail open under high load, leaving web applications vulnerable at precisely the moment when they most need protection. Thus begins a cat-and-mouse game, where attackers research new and clever ways to create malicious inputs that cause undesired application behavior while bypassing the WAF’s input filters. After all, the WAF doesn’t truly understand what the application will do with the input, so it must block any input that could cause an exploit, whether or not it would. In essence, your Web Application Firewall (WAF) isn’t much more than a speed bump, as hackers can do whatever they want in the application, whenever they succeed in bypassing the firewall.

Your pentests only happen every few months but I want to deploy faster and still be secure. Also, your application security testing modules produce too many flags.

Penetration tests are by far the most effective method for finding vulnerabilities and providing a nearly 100% coverage of the security spectrum. However, they are a temporary solution and can only be performed every few months because of the intensive need for time and resources they require. As such, penetration tests can be seen as the golden standard for security testing, but they are not a scalable method that can be performed frequently enough to follow the release cycles of modern applications (every few days).

The security testing modules such as SAST, DAST and IAST, have matured and gone mainstream. The most popular testing solutions are inexpensive, fast and easy to use on your application portfolio. The result however: a mountain of latent vulnerabilities but not enough time, talent or treasure to adequately investigate and address them all, leaving you exposed and anxious.

Enterprises are using more applications than ever to run business-critical processes, resulting in severe application security risks. The key to mitigate these risks is to examine what's happening to the applications when they are in production - out in the wild and defend them accordingly.

BitSensor provides real-time alerting and automated first response mitigation that enables security teams to prevent data breaches the moment they are about to happen. BitSensor instruments the application, and mitigates application risk throughout your entire application landscape. 

While real-time alerts and automated reports notify the right people within your organization before a data breach is about to happen, BitSensor also acts as an automated intelligent first responder, tarpitting, fuzzing, honeypotting, sandboxing and blocking the attacking entity in real time.

We’re all under pressure today to put as many services online as quickly as possible to meet customers’ demands for convenience, speed and ubiquitous access to data and systems. In the process though, we may be putting bars on the windows and deadbolts on the door while leaving a key under the mat. The ongoing need to deliver capabilities faster and adopt agile methodologies like DevOps threatens to greatly increase our exposure to application security vulnerabilities, leaving customers at risk.

BitSensor provides continuous web application protection by instrumenting the application from the inside with a single line of added code, providing insights that are accurate at the deepest code level

Only after a high-impact breach a company will typically start working to protect itself. It is time to change this paradigm and make a collective move towards self-protecting applications.

An insightful demo

Why BitSensor?

  • Agility and speed

    o   BitSensor runs in parallel with the application. The in-application dependency instruments the application asynchronously. This means 0 ms added latency.

    o   BitSensor is fully horizontally scalable.

    o   Short release cycles are no longer an issue, as you don't have to wait for your code to be tested. You have complete real time insights in all possible threats anyway.

  • Hacker Profiling

    o   Because BitSensor is located inside the application on code level, it can see much more of the attacker than any other security solution. It takes into account the IP addresses, cookies, user agents, session ID's, and much more. It makes correlations which would otherwise be impossible to make.

    o   As such, you can solely focus on the relevant events, thereby cutting the noise that takes up way too much time to assess.

  • Production Grade

    DDoS and fail open were issues for IDS technology, affecting the protected application when under attack. BitSensor in-application plugin runs on a separate thread and is processing millions of requests in production environments.

  • Instant Response

    The correlation engine of BitSensor Application SIEM reduces analyst time by 80%.

    Analysts are tired by the false positve rates of IDS. BitSensor correlates attacker profiles to only alert on high severity attacks.

  • 5 min. integration

    Deployment into an application will take your developer 5 minutes, and won't require specialized consultants.

    Deployment into an application will take your developer 5 minutes, traditionally this took two weeks.

    The in-application brings the two weeks of consulting time down to 5 minutes, freeing time for the developer to work on features.

  • Sniper Response

    BitSensor also monitors good traffic, diffrentiating agains the key attacker attributes.

    BitSensor acts as a sniper, affecting only the attacker while leaving the users of your business untouched.

    BitSensor will block on the key attributes of the attacker, leaving the users of your business untouched.

    Create hacker profiles through our advanced big data correlation engine.
