Beyond the Stack: A Single Solution for Enterprise-wide Threat Detection and Response

While many cybersecurity professionals have come to believe adding more tools to their security stack gives more protection, we think a single tool is more effective—and provides much better ROI.

Cybersecurity is a battleground. In an effort to detect and stop various types of cyberattacks, companies must make significant investments in different products, processes, and people. 

Most organizations start out with firewalls and EDRs, but quickly learn that these security tools cover only about 20% of the threat surface where attacks originate and proliferate. They fill in the remaining 80% by adding SIEMs, UEBAs, network traffic analyzers, IDS/IPSs, threat intel feeds, and SOARs—building a “stack” of tools that some call the ultimate and best practices cybersecurity solution.

Complexity equals confusion

Unfortunately, this approach is just wishful thinking. Lacking integration, an ad-hoc stack of security tools still relies on many separate and manual processes to find and stop attacks. 

A tall stack of disparate tools adds extra effort and complexity, which equals lost time and an inability to detect, verify, and stop cyber attacks. A daily (24/365) flood of alert “noise”—as large as 5K a day—becomes overwhelming and leads to missed threats. 

What’s more, most companies lack the expertise to set up, operate and manage some of the tools in their home-grown stack meaning they will need help from teams of highly-trained—and pricey— IT analysts and or consultants. 

Almost as soon as they get started, companies are caught between a rock and hard place. Build a comprehensive tool stack that drags you down with complexity and cost, or go with the “short stack,” a subset of cybersecurity tools that offers limited threat surface coverage and leaves you vulnerable to cyberattacks. 


ARIA ADR—an AI SOC in a box

Fortunately, there’s another option that turns a “lose-lose” proposition into one that’s a true win-win: ARIA ADR (Advanced Detection and Response).

Right out of the box, ARIA ADR delivers the value of a complete SOC (Security Operations Center) combining the analytics power of seven major threat detection tools. Built-in advanced AI and ML technology feeds tool analytics into patented dynamic threat behavior models—a significant advantage over solutions that rely on static rule sets.

ARIA ADR verifies, stops and remediates the most harmful types of cyber attacks—automatically and in near real time, eliminating interventions by high-priced security experts. Not only is ARIA ADR your best choice for stopping all major types of cyberattack, it’s also the most cost-effective solution available for threat detection and response.

Seven Tools in One 

ARIA ADR was purpose-built with the functionality of seven different —SIEM, EDR, UEBA, IDS/IPS, Threat Intel, NTA and SOAR—in a single, automated platform.



AI-driven detection and  automation

ARIA ADR uses advanced AI technology to fully automate the detection, verification, and remediation of cyber-attacks. In fact, ARIA ADR can automatically take the appropriate action—such as stop a verified threat, redirect suspicious traffic, or know a device off-line—depending on the type of attack, the criticality of the targeted assets, and the available options.

Enterprise-wide visibility 

ARIA ADR dramatically improves overall security posture across the enterprise—including premises, data centers, and cloud instances. You get visibility into all network traffic—across the premises, cloud and remote devices - plus the capability to generate and leverage enhanced analytics from any and all data sources.

ML-Based threat models

ML-based threat models make it possible for ARIA ADR to identify threats based upon their tell-tale behaviors, meaning that the threats can’t hide or be mistaken for other activity. In addition to the 70 patented threat-behavior models built into the platform, ARIA ADR is intelligent and able to distinguish new kinds of threat/attack behaviors from unusual patterns from things like normal device, application, and user behavior—building new models it can add to its arsenal.  

And because it doesn’t rely on signatures or SIEM-based static rule detection, ARIA ADR can also detect next-generation threats, including zero-day attacks and file-less ransomware

Easy-to-read, validated alerts

Fully-validated alerts makes everyone in your IT group a security specialist. Instead of trying to manage a flood of alerts from disparate tools, staff members only see confirmed alerts they can act upon—not every possible threat.

Maximum ROI for threat detection and response

ARIA ADR builds an attractive business case for threat detection and response. By providing the capabilities of a complete SOC at a fraction of the cost, ARIA ADR is able to deliver an industry-best ROI for threat detection and response.
