Company Dashboard: Insights Into Your Threat Detection Marketplace Activity

SOC Prime Threat Detection Marketplace (TDM) has been created as a SaaS content platform that helps companies advance their security analytics. Therefore, supercharging analytical capabilities and providing real-time statistics is one of the core features we at SOC Prime consider of paramount value. Data visualization helps deliver data in a more intuitive way and allows getting a clear picture of the company’s progress in terms of proactive threat detection.

The TDM platform has already represented the Leaderboards page covering the general TDM statistics on top authors, TDM content release dynamics, MITRE ATT&CK® coverage, leading platforms by rule count, and other data in numbers. With the latest TDM release, the platform gets another analytics-based page that gains insights into the company statistics and explores the company-wide activity using the TDM community for proactive threat detection. 

The Dashboard page displays the company statistics over the selected time range, compares the data with other companies in the similar industry, and indicates the trend as compared to the previous period. 

By default, all company statistics are displayed for the annual period, but can also be filtered by a less lengthy time frame — from a monthly period to a range of 7 days. 

Accounts

Top security performers use TDM daily and weekly depending on their role, such as CISOs, SOC Managers, Security Analysts, Threat Hunters, Detection Engineers, members of Threat Intelligence and Incident Response teams. The Accounts dashlet on the Dashboard page displays how many TDM user accounts the company has created over the selected time frame with the trend direction and comparison with your industry average. The growing trend of active TDM accounts highlights that the company is channeling more efforts into proactive threat detection. 

Downloads

The most relevant threat detection content reflecting the latest attack vectors is constantly enriching the TDM platform. The Downloads dashlet on the Dashboard page displays how many content items have been downloaded by all company users over the selected time period with the trend direction and comparison with your industry average. The upward trend directly reflects that security practitioners tend to keep up with the latest threats and attack methods, consistency, and continuation of the process. 

Hours Saved

A lot of research is needed to cover all recent attacks that are becoming more and more elaborate with the advance of new technologies used by threat actors, and companies are struggling with a lack of resources to satisfy these needs. The Hours Saved dashlet displays how much time your company has managed to save on research and development of the threat detection content over the selected time period with the trend direction and comparison with your industry average. Reducing research and development time by acquiring content from TDM helps to channel your company resources into security monitoring and incident response activities.

Detection Quality Increase

This dashlet on the Dashboard page reflects the progress and quality of your threat detection and hunting capabilities benchmarked against the MITRE ATT&CK® framework. Improving the threat coverage is a continuous process and the trend direction should be increasing over time until the consistent coverage across all relevant TTPs is reached with further focus on updates and adjustments based on business needs.

Logins

Top security performers have security specialists check TDM daily and leverage the platform capabilities on a weekly or a bi-weekly basis. This line chart displays the number of company logins to TDM over the selected time period with the trend direction and comparison with your industry average. The line chart compares your company’s TDM login trend over the selected frame with the industry average trend. Points on the line chart indicate particular time periods depending on the selected time range — from months for a one-year period to days for a period of one week. By hovering over each time point on the line chart, you can see a tooltip with the color-coded chart legend displaying your company’s trend (green) vs. industry average trend (gray).
