Overview

Snort is an open-source, rule-based, intrusion detection and prevention system. It combines the benefits of signature-, protocol-, and anomaly-based inspection methods to deliver flexible protection from malware attacks. Snort gained notoriety for being able to accurately detect threats at high speeds.

LightCyber behavioral analytics from Palo Alto Networks enables organizations to stop active attackers and malware operating in the network. With LightCyber, attackers have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. LightCyber leverages powerful behavioral analytics technology to learn expected user and device behavior and spot anomalous activity indicative of an attack. LightCyber's network-centric model catches attacks during every stage of the attack lifecycle, especially during the reconnaissance and lateral movement stages. Magna Pathfinder, an endpoint interrogation service, augments LightCyber's network-centric attack prevention by providing endpoint context to accelerate incident response. Magna Pathfinder identifies the executable on an endpoint that is responsible for an attack. The Magna Cloud Expert System then analyzes the executable to determine if it is malware, riskware or a rare artifact.
