Five Real-Time Threat Detection Engines


NDR Detection Engines

Data Detection Engine

Extensible query engine uses a deep learning prediction model to analyze encrypted traffic and identify patterns across unrelated network flows.

Deep Packet Inspection

Uses known indicators of compromise to identify threat actors and malicious tactics, techniques, and procedures across encrypted and unencrypted network traffic.

Encrypted Payload Analytics

Detects zero-day C2 servers and new variants of malware families based on patterns found in the session size, direction, and interarrival times.

Domain Generation Algorithm

Identifies dynamic domain generation technology used by malware to avoid detection.

Session Risk Analytics

Powerful logic engine utilizes rules that send alerts based on session-based risk factors.
