Connect the Dots with Cyware For a Faster Threat Investigation Process

Connect the Dots with Cyware For a Faster Threat Investigation Process

Share Blog Post

Threat investigation requires unearthing of complex hidden patterns, more so importantly in present times when threat actors have become highly advanced and are leveraging extremely sophisticated tactics and techniques to hide their tracks. 

Cyware’s threat response platform, Cyware Fusion and Threat Response (CFTR), comes with advanced capabilities that supercharge threat investigations by unearthing hidden threat patterns by connecting the dots between different malware, vulnerabilities, threat actors, incidents, and other threat elements. It enables security teams to seamlessly manage triage efforts to proactively thwart malicious attacks. 

Use Cases


The Connect the Dots feature provides value to incident response teams in more ways than one:

  • Threat Intelligence-enabled Incident Investigation: It enables security analysts to identify the connections between an incident and all the historically observed incidents, malware, vulnerabilities, threat actors, campaigns, and more. CFTR provides machine learning (ML) enabled insights to build the connection between various malicious activities by attackers and any observed incident. This gives a birds-eye view of all the activities in the threat landscape that are of concern when investigating a particular incident.

  • Faster Incident Investigation: Earlier, security analysts had to manually search and look for all the related components across multiple windows. By automating the correlation between incidents and adversary TTPs, an organization’s assets, and other components, the Connect the Dots feature speeds the incident investigation by manifolds by automating the entire steps required in fetching historical data and linking it with the incident. 

  • Identification of Impacted Assets: With this capability, CFTR helps analysts track all the endpoints, software, applications, and other assets that may be potentially impacted by an incident. Thus, it allows them to accurately define the scope of the incident analysis and triage workflow. The feature also provides capabilities to improve traceability of any incident or impacted assets.


How does it Work?


CFTR’s Connect the Dots feature works by linking incident data with the ingested or historical threat intelligence, malware, vulnerability data, and other threat aspects. Let’s find out how!

  • It uses advanced Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to find links between disparate threat elements, thereby producing more contextual and actionable threat intelligence or threat investigation analysis. 

  • Security analysts can view a list of impacted entities linked to an incident and link any of the listed entities to the incident. Having a 360-degree view of threats aids incident response teams in managing and responding to threats more effectively.  


The Bottom Line


The Connect the Dots capability in CFTR enables security teams to move beyond simple incident management to a proactive threat hunting and response to all kinds of security threats, including malware, vulnerabilities, and threat actors, engaging both digital assets and human analysts for multifaceted investigation. By logging such correlations using advanced automation, the feature enables the analysis of root causes behind incidents and prioritizes operational enhancements with post-incident learnings.
