l USE CASE l S E C U R I T Y As your network, applications, users and devices evolve, so does your attack surface. Continuously monitoring an attack surface is a fundamental need for cyber security professionals. Attack surface management is a top priority for C level roles such as CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, and security teams because you can't detect or protect what you can't see. Monitoring the always changing attack surface is even more difficult when you have multiple vendors and tools to use for visibility and action. Unlike endpoint data, bad actors cannot manipulate network packet data. Network packet-derived data is the ultimate source of intelligence for gaining comprehensive (e.g., broad and deep) network visibility and conducting more effective cyber threat detection and response. NETSCOUT ® Omnis ® Cyber Intelligence (OCI) is an advanced NDR solution that integrates with and fills the gaps left by other security tools. NETSCOUT's OCI leverages NETSCOUT CyberStream instrumentation to capture full packets at line rate (e.g., up to 100Gbps). Cyberteam's patented Adaptive Service Intelligence ® (ASI) technology automatically extracts a unique, robust set of layer 3- 7 metadata from packets (we call Smart Data). With this Smart Data, security analysts can use NETSCOUT OCI to conduct highly responsive, real-time, and historical analyses to detect and investigate threats quicker. Omnis Cyber Intelligence (OCI) Risk Visualization attack surface analysis focuses on the risk not the threat, proactively building a picture of the attack surface from the network perspective. OCI automatically maps out parts of the attack surface (e.g. networks, front end servers, backend databases, users etc.) that need to be continuously monitored and analyzed for security vulnerabilities and unauthorized services. Optionally, OCI can feed this this information to the SIEM. Continuously Monitor Exposed Attack Surface to Optimize the Effectiveness of Defenses Deployed
