Cyber Threat Landscape Diversity and Complexity. Cyber defenders are constantly challenged with a growing number of attack volumes, a surge in multiple APT groups, and increased sophistication of adversary tools. As an industry-leading MDR vendor, 7Layers was laser-focused on tackling their end-customers’ cybersecurity risks, which involved addressing a diverse range of adversary techniques commonly intended to exfiltrate data.
Disparate Technology Toolkit. 7Layers delivers Managed Security and MDR services to customers across multiple industry verticals, with diverse levels of cybersecurity maturity, and leveraging disparate SIEM and security analytics systems. Timely delivering detection content for emerging threats is already a challenge not every MDR provider can handle, not to mention migration and customization hurdles driven by the diverse environment needs of the end-customers’ solutions. The company was looking for a trusted vendor curating cross-tool detection and hunting content that requires minimum fine-tuning.
Lack of Behavioral Threat Hunting Content Tailored for Customers’ Environments. Having relied mainly on OSINT sources, 7Layers found the process of detection content selection, customization, and conversion to multiple SIEM & XDR systems rather time-consuming. The company was in search of a third-party SOC content provider offering high-quality behavioral threat hunting content that could minimize the number of false positives and match the environment needs of multiple end-customers.
7Layers relies on SOC Prime’s innovation and progressive cybersecurity mindset powered by the collective cyber defense and the combination of cutting-edge technologies — Sigma language, MITRE ATT&CK, and Detection-as-Code practices. By choosing SOC Prime’s Detection as Code platform, 7Layers has managed to address its most pressing cybersecurity challenges related to the lack of high-quality detection content, alert fatigue, and insufficient SOC team resources for threat investigation and proactive defense to keep up with an avalanche of emerging threats. With SOC Prime, the company has accelerated its TTP-based hunting capabilities enabling end-customers to proactively search for treats that matter most. SOC Prime’s support for industry-leading SIEM & XDR solutions has helped the company address one of the most common MSSP and MDR vendors’ challenges of time-consuming detection content conversion to multiple technology stacks along with parsing and fine-tuning hurdles.
With access to SOC Prime’s extensive security intelligence repository, 7Layers could reach over 9,000 ideas for Threat Hunting and Detection Engineering. Leveraging a wealth of Sigma behavior-based threat hunting queries ready to deploy to multiple end-customers’ environments, the company managed to enhance its Threat Hunting services and effectively tackle the false-positive challenge.
SOC Prime’s Detection as Code platform has enabled 7Layers to proactively defend against emerging threats the company’s end-customers anticipate most. The industry-leading MDR provider has managed to timely provide its customers with curated endpoint detection and cloud security rules along with verified hunting queries that are at the top list of the company’s content priorities.In their daily security operations, 7Layers’ SOC team relies on the MITRE ATT&CK framework as the “reference beacon” to profile threat actors, adversary techniques, and tools. Leveraging the MITRE ATT&CK content visualization functionality in the SOC Prime Platform has helped 7Layers to streamline the search for detection and hunting content by particular TTPs matching the end-customers’ threat profiles, address prioritization hurdles, and fill the gaps in threat detection coverage.
