empow has delivered new kind of security information and event management (SIEM) system that is tuned to enable real-time detection, investigation, remediation and mitigation of both known and unknown threats, without rules. empow accomplishes this through the following capabilities:
- Detection and response, without rules. The company holds 15 patents on a unique artificial intelligence technology that uses natural language processing (NLP) and cause-and-effect analytics to detect actual attacks, not just anomalous behavior, in real time. Because empow categorizes events as “good or evil,” rather than “normal or not normal,” it eliminates the need for analysts to manually investigate alerts to determine whether they indicate benign or evil intent. empow also operationalizes human-written intelligence through its NLP capabilities, making it unique among SIEM vendors. This enables empow to make use of all known security intelligence, so it can dynamically identify and respond to known and unknown threats, and to take action in real-time through…
- Automated investigation. empow uses an intent-based security language that breaks down security infrastructure into “particles” that can be dynamically instantiated or regrouped to perform incident response duties. For example, the system conducts automatic, proactive investigation with Dynamic Response Orchestration, which analyzes data from the appropriate security infrastructure components to confirm the threat. empow does all of this with no need for an additional security orchestration and response (SOAR) product integration. Once the investigation has been accomplished, empow completes the incident response cycle with…
- Automated mitigation and remediation. Because empow’s security language acts as a layer of abstraction across the entire security infrastructure, it can dynamically invoke functionality from any security component or group of components to mitigate and remediate attacks. Its Dynamic Response Orchestration determines the best tool or tools for the job and automatically takes action against attackers.
- Low total cost of ownership. Historically, only large organizations have been able to afford SIEMs due to the high costs of deployment and ongoing rules development and management. Because empow does not require rules, it deploys faster and has a far lower total cost of ownership than original and next-generation SIEMs, which makes it a financially attractive option for midmarket enterprises as well as large ones. Additionally, since it automates previously manual security functions, it delivers rapid return on investment both in terms of labor dollars saved and redeployment of skilled security personnel to more strategic activities.
Finally, empow provides the visibility into security situational awareness required to give CISOs meaningful metrics for reporting on the security program. With empow in place, CISOs can report on accelerated time to detection and remediation; improved personnel efficiency and deployment; and improved return on investment from the entire security infrastructure. This gives them the “business language” required to elevate to the boardroom level where they can participate in discussions around how security can enable strategic business initiatives, which puts them in a much more secure and valuable position than is possible with today’s “security as an afterthought” mentality.
In the New World of security, empow is a New SIEM whose time has come.
