Sorry couldn't resist.
Lessons from building the threat intelligence platform for the Israeli Defence Force form the technical foundations of a new security startup called Siemplify. Siemplify’s tech is designed to contextualise threat alerts from the disparate array of security technologies on enterprise networks (anti-malware, intrusion detection …
"disparate array of security technologies on enterprise networks (anti-malware, intrusion detection systems, firewalls and more"
Anti-malware don't work, intrusion detection systems don't work, firewalls don't work if the underlying Operating System isn't secure. As in not running someone elses code downloaded over the Internet.
It was pretty light on substance. And that slide was a conceptual punch in the gut. "Here are some extremely vague references to basic data analysis techniques, which we're going to pretend are 1) somehow interesting, 2) related in some way to these idiotic pictures, and 3) 'military'."
The interesting part, which appears only metastatically, is the bit about "visual story lines". There's a huge amount of work going on these days in data visualization and narrativisation, and it'd be nice to know if there's something innovative here or just an application of well-established techniques. (I'm interested for theoretical reasons, as an avocational digital-rhetoric scholar.)
Disclaimer: We (Micro Focus) also sell a SIEM aggregation-and-analysis product. I don't work on it myself, and I've only looked at it briefly (it seems to do the job). It's not based on hard-ass "military" techniques, though.
