Most Security Operations Centre’s focus on known threats, which means as threats evolve, incidents can go undetected and unmitigated for months and even years.
This allows attackers to get comfortable within an environment and to wreak havoc.

During the initial 30 days of your service, you will work collaboratively with Cythera to ensure the successful deployment and configuration of your service.

Regular monitoring and threat hunting enables the team from Cythera to detect and respond to threats more quickly and efficiently. You will meet with a Threat Assessment Manager on a monthly basis to ensure your security plan is evolving with your needs, and if we do find something, our team has a one-hour SLA for notifying you.

Incident Response

Great incident detection and response is more than what you know—it’s knowing what you don’t know, too. Unlike other Security Operation Centre’s and managed services, Cythera’s Managed Detection and Response platform incorporates four distinct threat detection methodologies to detect the unknown:

  1. Threat intelligence is gathered from Rapid7’s 5000+ customers and third-party intelligence groups, anonymised, and analysed to further automate threat detection and response.
  2. User behaviour analytics leverages knowledge of how regular users behave in order to spot anomalies, enabling more efficient insider threat and stolen credential detection.
  3. Attacker behaviour analysis allows rules to be put into place to automatically make decisions based on familiarity with hacker behaviour.
  4. Hunting methodology employs complex data analytics to identify unknown threats.

These methodologies make it possible to validate threats before they’re reported with a nearly zero percent false positive rate.
