Aella Data Integrates with Demisto Enterprise for AI-Driven Breach Detection with Automated Incident Response for Security Operations Teams

December 18, 2018

SANTA CLARA, Calif. & CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2018--To help security operations teams stay ahead of the increasing volume of threats going undetected for too long ,Aella Data, an innovator in AI-driven cybersecurity solutions and pioneer in pervasive breach detection systems, announced a product integration with Demisto, a leader in Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR). The integration between Aella Data Starlight and Demisto Enterprise delivers a complete solution for Security Operations Centers (SOCs), reducing the time to detect an attack from months to minutes, automating response actions across products, and making security operations more efficient and effective.

Driven by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, Aella Data’s Starlight platform provides SOC analysts with advanced insights into threat activity. The integration with Demisto further empowers customers to easily complete the response and threat mitigation process by leveraging Demisto’s visual playbook and automated response capabilities. And by leveraging Demisto’s extensive ecosystem of product integrations, Starlight users can achieve a complete, integrated solution that covers collection, detection, investigation, response, and defense.

“By reducing the time it takes for SOC analysts to act on potential attacks, the integration between Aella Data and Demisto addresses one of the most significant pain points that security operations teams are experiencing,” said Paul Jespersen, Vice President of Business Development and International at Aella Data. “According to the 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report by Verizon, sixty-eight percent of breaches took months or longer to discover, can result in excessive dwell times and potentially lead to extremely damaging data breaches. A current example is the Marriott breach, which lasted for more than four years.”

“A key challenge facing security teams today is extracting relevant information from the barrage of data coming their way. Demisto’s integration with Aella Data provides our users with a central console to ingest aggregated alerts and execute standardized response that coordinates actions across the security product stack,” said Rishi Bhargava, co-founder and vp, marketing at Demisto. “This integration builds atop existing Demisto capabilities and enables SOCs to scale their operational and response capabilities.”

“We’re seeing customers shift their cybersecurity spending from defense first (prevention) solutions to detection and response. They’re looking for more complete protection,” said Jansen Uy, General Manager of Cyberworld, a leading IT and security distributor based in Hong Kong and a partner of both companies. “Together, Aella Data and Demisto are a compelling and effective partnership that provides a truly autonomous SOC with sophisticated detection and response capabilities, and one that can be fully integrated with leading firewalls and other defense solutions which are often already deployed by customers.”

Demisto Enterprise integrates with hundreds of security products and enables customers to build playbooks for different security processes. These playbooks incorporate a combination of automated tasks and manual best practices to standardize and scale incident response. Demisto’s playbooks help reduce MTTR (Mean Time to Respond) for security incidents and free up time for security teams to conduct deeper investigations. In addition, the case management and machine learning capabilities help security teams maintain incident oversight and improve their security posture with time.

Aella Data Starlight integrates with many security products including firewalls and secure web gateway products, SSL visibility solutions, other SIEMs, and SOAR platforms like Demisto for automated response integration.
