CSPI's Myricom® Automated Investigative Response (AIR) application continually ingests alert events, targeting user-identified critical assets from Cisco FirePOWER firewalls or NIPS systems, to find alerts that indicate a breach may be occurring. It takes the relevant event data, including the source and/or target address as well as the time stamp to be used to trigger the nVoy Packet Recorder, to generate a matching extract of the conversations between those devices. The extraction is initiated as the FirePOWER detects an intrusion - the resulting extraction file is the trigger to begin the incident response effort. This is made simpler by leveraging these extraction files, which contain the details required to quickly determine the severity and actions required.
These details include:
- What type of assets were involved, such as PII or other critical data
- The scope of which data records were exposed
- The duration of the breach
