It's time to go beyond a defensive stance and adopt a proactive outlook.

Security breaches are no longer a question of if, but when. To have any chance of minimizing their impact, organizations must be prepared to detect and respond to them at the earliest. With its extensive threat hunting capabilities, ManageEngine Log360 hands you the power to strike first.

High-speed search analytics

Search through the length and breadth of your logs

A high-speed, flexible, and easy-to-use search tool that lets you build queries in SQL to search through your entire log bucket in a matter of seconds.

  • Get quick results: Quickly sift through your log data with a processing speed of 25,000 logs per second.
  • Build queries flexibly: Go with basic or advanced options to build SQL queries. Perform wildcard, phrase, Boolean, or grouped searches and find answers quickly.
  • Search for anything: Search for any field and any value. Extract new fields and find them in log data through RegEx matching.
  • Save your progress: Save your search parameters so you don't have to repeat the process all over.
  • Set up real-time alerts: Ensure you get notified when threat patterns repeat in your network.
High-speed search analytics

User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA)

Anticipate malicious activity in advance with watch lists An ML-based module, UEBA constantly learns users' behavior patterns and flags down unusual activities and suspicious behaviors as anomalies. Based on the anomalies, it assigns risk scores to users and entities in your network. UEBA leverages this information in these ways.

  • Detect and watchlist high-risk entities: Log360 watchlists high-risk entities based on their risk scores, which are in turn based on real-time actions.
  • Send real-time alerts: Log360 notifies security admins through email or SMS when the risk score of an individual entity crosses a set threshold.
  • Construct detailed timelines: Log360 extracts information from logs to construct detailed timelines that give visibility into who did what, when, and where.

Frequently asked questions

1. What is threat hunting?

Threat hunting, also known as cyberthreat hunting, is a proactive cybersecurity approach that involves actively searching for hidden threats such as advanced persistent threats and indicators of compromise within an organization's network or systems. The primary goal of threat hunting is to detect and isolate threats that may have bypassed your network perimeter defenses, enabling you to quickly respond to these threats and minimize the risk of potential damage.

This cybersecurity approach focuses on understanding and identifying the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) employed by hackers. By doing so, threat hunting allows organizations to anticipate and prepare for potential risks, enhancing their security posture. Threat hunting is important for any organization that wants to keep its network safe from intruders, helping organizations uncover hidden threats and detain them.

There are three types of threat hunting techniques. They are:
  • Structured threat hunting: A proactive approach using predefined methodologies and tools to identify threats based on known attack patterns and indicators of compromise
  • Unstructured threat hunting: A flexible and creative approach that relies on the expertise of the hunter to explore data sources and identify unusual patterns, aiming to discover new attack vectors that may be missed by traditional security tools.
  • Situational threat hunting: An approach that combines both the structured and unstructured approaches to address ongoing events. It involves real-time investigation and collaboration with response teams, and aims to understand attackers' activities while minimizing the impact.

2. What are the benefits of threat hunting in cybersecurity?

  • Reduces the risk of business disruption: Threat hunting helps you identify and respond to suspicious threats lurking undetected in your network.
  • Early threat detection: Threat hunting helps reduce dwell time by actively seeking out hidden threats that may have bypassed initial defenses.
  • Improved security posture: Threat hunting helps uncover advanced attack techniques, enhances the incident response, strengthens the security posture, and ensures compliance requirements are met.

3. What are the steps involved in the process of threat hunting?

The process begins with the creation of hypothetical attack scenarios or the identification of abnormal network activities. These hypothetical attack scenarios are tested through a data collection process that involves collecting network logs and endpoint logs to hunt for threats.

The hypotheses are then tested using various tools and techniques to discover malicious pattern and adversaries TTPs.Threat hunting is predominantly a human-driven activity where cybersecurity analysts leverage their expertise, along with machine learning and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) tools, to analyze and search collected data for potential risks. It is essential to understand how the threat hunting process works.
