Vectra customers and security researchers respond to some of the world’s most consequential threats. And they tell us there’s a consistent set of questions they must answer when investigating any given attack scenario. Starting with an alert from Cognito Detect, another security tool, or their intuition, analysts will form a hypothesis as to what is occurring.
Whether the task is driving a nail, fastening a screw, or detecting a hidden HTTP tunnel, it pays to have the right tool for the job. The wrong tool can increase the time to accomplish a task, waste valuable resources, or worse. Leveraging the power of machine learning is no different.
Vectra has adopted the philosophy of implementing the most optimal machine learning tool for each attacker behavior detection algorithm. Each method has its own strengths.
They obliged and in doing so bought into a view of Caesar as superior to them. Caesar exploited this to good effect: he acted as the leader of the pirates, he practiced combat exercises with them and even read them poetry.
Eventually, Caesar’s associates returned with the silver and he was let go. He vowed to return to collect his money and kill the pirates and he went to great lengths to make good on his promise.
Caesar kept his cool, survived the hostage situation, and recovered his belongings because he had a plan and a strategy.
