Smart SOC STEP LOGIC protects

09 March 2022

Information security of the infrastructure is monitored using machine learning 24/7.

STEP LOGIC has connected the provider to SMART SOC, a cybersecurity center based on its own software platform. In addition to the continuous collection and storage of events, detection and prompt notification of customers about information security incidents, the tasks of the Center's specialists include threat analysis and provision of recommendations, as well as consulting support, detailed investigation and expertise.

SMART SOC is currently connected to more than 150 data sources in the customer's infrastructure — not only operating systems, network equipment and information security, but also application systems, including virtualization, orchestration and automation of cloud services. Events are collected using in-house data source mechanisms to reduce the impact on the cloud provider's services. In addition to in-house sources, SOC specialists also use external sources: Threat Intelligence data, geolocation and registration databases, as well as databases of domain names and IP addresses, and malware analysis services.

The Security Data Lake software platform developed by STEP LOGIC is used to store and analyze the collected data. It integrates all SMART SOC data and tools in one place without the need to integrate separate SIEM, IRP and SOAR solutions with each other, as is common in classical architecture. Data analysis uses a common search query language, visualization builder, common correlation rules, and machine learning models. This approach reduces the response time of SMART SOC analysts and engineers, and lowers operating costs.

Response actions are determined by monitoring scenarios developed in the context of the MITRE ATT&CK and Cyber Kill Chain methodologies. In fact, each of them is a separate algorithm for counteracting a given vector of attack, known techniques and tactics of attackers. The most relevant scenarios for the customer are selected after a comprehensive survey, which includes an analysis of the software platforms used at the site, identifying potential threats associated with them, the necessary sources of events and data.

Automatic notifications via email and Telegram are used to communicate with the customer. Joint investigation of incidents and monitoring of key service indicators are carried out using the SMART SOC interactive personal account.

«Our SOC software platform is equipped with a flexible correlation engine and advanced machine learning functions for deep analysis of the collected data. We use all this together with detailed monitoring scenarios, proven practice of their application and regulated SOC workflows to reduce false triggering by 10 times, – says the Head of SMART SOC Stanislav Prishchep. – Another feature of the platform is the ability to link incidents into chains and detect time-spanning, purposeful malicious actions».

«Expanding the customer pool and the range of the services requires appropriate levels of information security, especially in the current rough times. Connection to STEP LOGIC's SOC was an important step on the path to improved continuity and security of our services, – comments Andrei Prishchenko, Head of Cyber Security Center. We continue working on the project, and our next goal is to develop the technical and expert potential, gained during its implementation».
