Detection Capabilities

Datashield has developed a proprietary threat hunting/intelligence platform focused on enhancing the detection capabilities of RSA Netwitness. Advanced anomaly behavior and IOC data are sourced from a multitude of threat intelligence sources. This data is carefully refined then developed into ShieldVision queries.

Leveraging deep expertise in data parsing, threat detection, and attack behavior, the Datashield CTI team develops and maintains an ever-expanding library of correlation and event-matching rules for both logs and packets. The CTI team also develops in-house threat intelligence, gathering information on not only external threats, but also vulnerabilities, potential misconfigurations, and critical assets, bringing this together within NetWitness to provide highly contextualized, actionable alerting that goes beyond the simple regurgitation of alerts from your devices.


Netwitness Content Enhancement

Datashield has a highly sophisticated content development program specifically designed to address custom parser, correlation rule, and reporting needs. Data stewardship is a vital part of the Datashield MDR program. Aligning the unique technical needs with the overlaying business risks for each customer is an essential part of the Datashield service. Capturing, parsing, alerting on, and correlating the right data is critical to the success of the customer’s security program.
