XDR Assist

Service Description

Our team of experts has deep proficiency in fully leveraging Forescout XDR and performs each of the following services on your organization’s behalf.

Security monitoring and triage

Forescout experts directly and actively monitor all detections (things that have been flagged as potential threats) around the clock (24x7x365) and triage suspicious entities generated by Forescout XDR, following the Forescout SOC incident handling workflow. A security incident case will be created for a suspicious entity that cannot be confirmed as either benign true positive or false positive during triage, to continue the threat investigation process.

Threat investigation

The team investigates security incident cases to validate whether a suspicious entity is a confirmed threat and to identify its impact in accordance with Severity 1 to 5 impact definitions. As part of the incident case analysis, they document observations including attacker attributes, attack vector, attack campaign, infected entities, malware capabilities, behavior and indicators of compromise (IOCs).

Incident management

Once a security incident is confirmed, the team assigns an impact level and, if appropriate, escalated it in accordance with the service level agreement, notifying you via your preferred escalation procedure. Based on the nature of the security incident, Forescout provides containment and remediation guidance to stop and/or recover from an attack.

Threat hunting

Forescout experts provide continuous monitoring and proactive investigation support for high-risk activities and IOCs that are not easily detected or prevented by existing security controls. They identify monitoring gaps and exposed vulnerabilities, recommending appropriate remediation options. To support incident-response efforts, they trace all attack-related activities for containment and validate mitigation during recovery. Forescout prioritizes threat hunts based on your company profile; critical assets; prevalent threat actors; current threat intelligence; high-risk tactics, techniques and procedures; and other input you provide. Malicious findings are escalated to you.

Log source monitoring

The team ensures all configured log sources are continuously sending logs to Forescout XDR.

Webinar: Improving SOC Efficiency by 450x with Forescout XDR

Threat detection and response has become increasingly important, and increasingly difficult, even for seasoned and large SOC teams. Current approaches, including traditional extended detection and response (XDR) solutions, don’t adequately convert the mountain of daily alerts into high-fidelity detections of true threats, nor do they enable SOC teams to automate response processes across the extended enterprise (IT, OT, IoT, IoMT). Forescout XDR, combined with other Forescout solutions, uniquely addresses these challenges.
