Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division within the Kudelski Group, today announced the launch of Threat Navigator, an innovative new tool that is included in Kudelski Security's powerful Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services. Using Threat Navigator, clients can visualize and understand their existing security coverage against the latest attacker techniques and access automated recommendations to improve security detection capability in their context. Threat Navigator is a core component of Kudelski Security’s MDR client portal and integrated with FusionDetect™, the foundation of Kudelski Security’s innovative XDR architecture, which has been instrumental in the global adoption of Kudelski Security’s enterprise MDR offerings.
The frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks continues to rise. In response, security teams are under increasing scrutiny from business executives and boards of directors to clearly articulate the state of security. One of the challenges security teams face is effectively understanding and communicating their risk and detection capabilities when protecting against modern threats and current threat actors. Using the Threat Navigator functionality that is now embedded in Kudelski Security’s core MDR service, clients can instantly understand their existing security detection coverage, and gain a deeper understanding of what data and security tooling is required to improve their detection capability against threat actors known to target their industry.
“Our global clients need more insights into the risks they face, including attack patterns and threat actors by industry, as well as by geography,” said Andrew Howard, CEO of Kudelski Security. “By introducing Threat Navigator to our MDR portal, we’re helping clients better understand risks, and prioritize defenses to continuously reduce the risk of business disruption, including direct and indirect financial losses and damage.”
Threat Navigator is part of Kudelski Security’s broader Cyber Fusion Center-based MDR strategy that combines technology, services, and highly tailored processes and procedures that are tuned to each client’s needs. This expands on current MDR capabilities, leveraging the widely recognized MITRE ATT&CK® framework, along with client threat modeling analysis done jointly with Kudelski Security experts, to provide security leaders with instant visualization of their security defense coverage by relevance as well as providing insight and guidance regarding their top priority gaps. This helps clients realize a comprehensive, 24x7 threat detection and response strategy that includes risk reduction and exposure management plans that is augmented by threat intelligence, threat hunting, efficient tooling, digital forensics, and incident response (DFIR) expertise.
Kudelski Security makes this new functionality available to all MDR clients, enhancing the interactive nature of its MDR services and expanding the functionality of its award-winning client portal. Further features include a dynamic and user-friendly interface that highlights:
Current security coverage against MITRE ATT&CK® framework prioritized based on threat actors targeting the organization’s industry and the techniques those threat actors are known to leverage.
Rich knowledge base with insight into Threat Actors (including techniques they use and industries they target), in-depth information about MITRE ATT&CK® techniques, and security data sources ingested into Kudelski Security’s FusionDetect™.
Recommendations & Reporting with complete list of prioritized attacker techniques and export function.
Industry specific features are planned for future releases to further improve defense strategies and provide regular resiliency guidance as threat landscapes and cloud & hybrid business environments.
“We’ve used the MITRE ATT&CK® framework for years as part of our onboarding of new MDR clients,” said Olivier Spielmann, who leads Kudelski Security’s Global Managed Detection and Response services. “We believe that sharing such a level of visibility and knowledge in our client portal is a game changer for the companies we work with. Nowhere else can they get up to date insight into their existing security capabilities, potential gaps and detection coverage along with actionable insights to reduce risks and improve resiliency.”
Kudelski Security continues to earn industry recognition for its MDR approach and service that deliver faster, improved security outcomes, including from Gartner, Forrester, Frost & Sullivan, Bloor Research and IDC. The company has been recently ranked by MSSP Alert #25 Global MSSP in their 2022 annual ranking: Top 250 MSSPs list and won joint with its sister company NAGRA the 2022 CSI Award for best cybersecurity Service category.
