With so many alerts in the typical environment, security teams need a way to filter out the noise without missing dangerous alerts. Analysts don’t have time to investigate every alert, so meaningful incidents are left in the queue while endless false positives take up all the time.
By running all events from Mimecast and other detection tools through D3’s Event Pipeline, security teams can automate data normalization, threat triage, and dismissal of benign events—eliminating up to 98% of events and keeping analysts focused on real threats. For email alerts ingested from Mimecast, this will include artifact extraction and correlation, de-duplication, threat intelligence enrichment, and assignment to the appropriate analyst if necessary. All of this occurs at the event level and is completely automated. Once a real incident is escalated to an analyst, they can trigger the appropriate playbook to resolve the threat.
D3’s Event Pipeline ensures that Mimecast alerts and other security events don’t get overlooked, no matter how much telemetry is produced by security tools. The unique architecture supports massive amounts of automated processing before human intervention is required. No more chasing false positives, fighting through an endless queue of alerts, or manually checking events against threat intelligence.
