Use event correlation for rule-based attack detection and investigation

When it comes to detecting security threats, event logs play a crucial role as they hold important security information. Log360's event correlation module correlates disparate security events and identifies threat patterns across your network. Log360 strings isolated security events together to identify indicators of an attack. With quick, accurate alerts, you can take a proactive stance to prevent damage to your network data and resources.

Stay aware of all detected security threats

Stay aware of all detected security threats

With Log360's intuitive correlation dashboard, you can view a summary of all detected security threats, including ransomware attacks, file integrity threats, and database threats and web server threats, web server threats, malicious use of command line tools, suspicious process spawning, and exploitation of built-in binary tools and utilities. You can gain insights into recent incidents, improve investigations, and resolve issues quickly.

Detect cyberattacks using prebuilt attack rules

Log360's event correlation engine has over 80 predefined correlation rules for:

  • Detecting several common cyberattacks.
  • Detecting tools used by attackers, like Mimikatz, BloodHound, Metasploit, and hashcat, during different phases of an attack to steal credentials, escalate privileges, and exfiltrate data.
  • Spotting anomalies in process spawning with malicious parent and children processes.
  • Detecting the exploitation of built-in binary tools like ProcDump and certreq to leverage living off the land techniques to stay stealthy in the network.

You can also create your own correlation rules, and clone and edit the predefined rules based on your requirements with the custom rule builder.

Investigate cyberattacks with attack timelines

Investigate cyberattacks with attack timelines

Navigate a detailed event timeline for each detected incident and drill down to raw log contents to get in-depth information on compromised accounts, infected devices, and more. Investigate cyberattacks, like brute-force attempts and cryptocurrency mining, by viewing the event history with sequential security events.

Frequently asked questions

1. What is event correlation in SIEM?

Event correlation in SIEM helps security teams identify and prioritize security incidents from different sources, providing a more comprehensive view of the overall security landscape.

In a typical IT environment, a large number of events and logs are generated across various systems and applications. Many of these events may appear harmless or insignificant when viewed in isolation. However, when these seemingly unrelated events are analyzed and correlated together, they may indicate a potential security threat.

The network log data is collected and analyzed with predefined rules and algorithms to detect anomalies, complex attack patterns, or any other indicators of compromise (IoCs). By detecting patterns and anomalies across various data sources, event correlation enhances the effectiveness of threat detection, reduces false positives, and enables faster response to potential security threats.

2. What are the different types of event correlation?

  •  Static correlation: Static correlation involves analyzing historical log data to uncover attack patterns and identify security threats that may compromise your network security. It helps you understand the tactics, techniques, and IoCs of previous attacks, and provides valuable information for threat hunting and incident response.
  •  Dynamic correlation: Dynamic correlation focuses on real-time detection of security incidents. It continuously monitors the incoming log data and events as they occur, and applies correlation rules and techniques to identify potential attack patterns or indicators of an ongoing attack.

3. How does event correlation work?

Event correlation is the process of identifying relationships between events. Event correlation works by collecting data from network traffic, endpoint devices, application devices, and much more. By analyzing this data, patterns of suspicious activity can be identified and correlated with other events to determine potential security threats.

4. Why is event correlation important?

Even correlation reduces false positives by filtering normal system behavior from abnormal behavior, minimizing unnecessary alerts and aiding in effective threat mitigation. While the process of collecting and correlating huge volumes of log data is highly complex and time-consuming, the benefits are substantial. It enables organizations to respond swiftly to emerging security incidents.

For instance, if an employee accesses a system at an unusual time and engages in unauthorized file transfers, event correlation can promptly trigger actions like blocking that particular IP address and isolating the system for mitigation.
