IronNet Enhances Network Detection and Response Solution, IronDefense

IronNet, Inc. | January 05, 2023

IronNet, Inc., a pioneer in transforming cybersecurity through collective defenseSM, has announced that its network detection and response (NDR) solution, IronDefense, now has more features. IronDefense, awarded the best possible grade by SE Labs for Enterprise Advanced Security NDR Detection, enables advanced and early visibility of unidentified cybersecurity threats that have evaded endpoint and firewall detection and infiltrated the network, regardless of whether it is on-premises or in the cloud. With IronNet's most recent NDR enhancements, Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts can use IronDefense to identify VPN misuse, including high abnormal login times, password spraying, and unsuccessful logins, all of which may be suggestive of brute force attacks or unauthorized access attempts. Additional analytics enhancements enable the identification of ongoing patterns of both randomized-timing and fixed-interval beacon activity, as well as the detection of DNS tunnels utilizing innovative encoding techniques employed by cybercriminals. The IronNet product development team has also improved IronDefense's usability. Specifically, new sensors can now be automatically commissioned and upgraded without the intervention of SOC personnel. IronDefense allows customers utilizing SentinelOne endpoint detection and response (EDR) to remotely establish and update network inventory and isolate a device in a SentinelOne-deployed network through the Entity page of the IronDefense user interface. CarbonBlack and Crowdstrike endpoints offer equivalent capabilities. About IronNet, Inc. IronNet, Inc., founded in 2014 by GEN (Ret.) Keith Alexander, is a global leader in cybersecurity that is revolutionizing how enterprises safeguard their networks by providing the first-ever Collective Defense technology operating at scale.
