LMNTRIX Active Defense Overview

What is LMNTRIX Active Defense?

LMNTRIX has reimagined cybersecurity, turning the tables in favor of the defenders once again. We have cut out the bloat of SIEM, log analysis, false positives and associated alert fatigue and we created new methods for confounding even the most advanced attackers. We combine deep expertise with cutting-edge technology, leading intelligence, and advanced analytics to detect and investigate threats with great speed, accuracy, and focus. We believe that in a time of continuous compromise you need continuous response – not incident response. Our approach turns inward and assumes that you’re already breached and that you’re continually going to be breached, so we take a pro-active, offensive, hunting, adversarial pursuit stance as opposed to a reactive, defensive, legacy stance with analysts staring at a SIEM console wishing they could detect an APT.

LMNTRIX Active Defense is a best in class Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service that detects and responds to advanced threats that bypass perimeter controls. The outcomes we deliver clients are validated breaches that are investigated, contained and remediated. All incidents are aligned to the kill chain and Mitre ATT&CK frameworks and contain detailed investigative actions and recommendations that your organisation follows to protect against the unknown, insider threat and malicious attacker.

We are a partner which becomes an extension of your internal team, can augment your MSSP, or be a full-service SOC as a service security solution.

Active Defense is made up of 3 elements:

LMNTRIX GRID (XDR) – This is our cyber defence SaaS platform that provides a new utility model for enterprise security, delivering pervasive visibility, automated threat detection & prevention, threat hunting, investigation, validation and unlimited forensic exploration on-demand and entirely from the cloud. It is a single investigative platform for insights into threats on enterprise, cloud, hybrid, and industrial control systems (ICS) networks. The LMNTRIX Grid delivers unique advantages over current network security solutions. It is a holistic and multi-vector platform with unlimited retention window of full-fidelity network traffic, innovative security visualizations, and the ease and cost-savings of an on-demand deployment model.

LMNTRIX Technology Stack –This is our powerful proprietary threat detection stack that is deployed onsite, behind existing controls. It’s made up of network sensors, endpoint agents and deceptions everywhere. It combines multiple threat detection systems, with deception everywhere, machine learning, threat intel, correlation, static file analysis, heuristics, and behavior and anomaly detection techniques to find threats in real-time. It decreases alarm fatigue by automatically determining which alerts should be elevated to security events, and reduces false positives by requiring consensus across detection.

LMNTRIX Cyber Defense Centers - While these technologies are without peer, what sets us apart from the pack is our team of cybersecurity professionals who continually monitor our clients environments 24x7 while simultaneously hunting threats internally as well as monitoring developments on the deep and dark web. Our CDC's are a global network of cyber defense centers with highly trained and certified intrusion analysts who provide constant vigilance and on-demand analysis of your networks. Our intrusion analysts monitor your networks and endpoints 24x7, applying the latest intelligence and proprietary methodologies to look for signs of compromise. When a potential compromise is detected, the team performs an in- depth analysis on affected systems to confirm the breach. When data theft or lateral movement is imminent, our automated perimeter containment blocks attackers in their tracks while endpoint containment feature makes immediate reaction possible by quarantining affected hosts, whether they are on or off your corporate network, significantly reducing or eliminating the consequences of a breach.

Knowledgeable staff help with threat validation, minimizing false positives while keeping us secure

What is our primary use case?

Originally, we were looking for endpoint protection for our workstations as well as our servers. The fact that endpoints would be monitored 24/7 with the Respond agent, and that each threat is being verified, is what really sold it for us. We have since expanded to include detection and hunt in our environments, and that really helps to protect us from an attack. We have since expanded to include our SCADA environments to make sure those are also protected at the same level. We are extremely satisfied customers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The fact that it's constantly hunting, looking for anomalies, and can evict without any intervention is really incredible."
  • "In the beginning, we were having issues with the LMNTRIX respond agent not playing nice with Cisco AMP."

What other advice do I have?

For companies like us that couldn't afford to setup and staff a 24/7 SOC, LMNTRIX is the perfect solution. Have them setup a proof of concept and show you want it can do for you.

Easy to install, nice dashboard, and responsive technical support who care about the customer

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use is protecting our network and end-users. I also use this as a ready-to-go solution in case we are attacked! The team at LMNTRIX is on point and always goes beyond its capabilities and support. I always tell my peers about them and how amazing their response team is, as well as the stellar monitoring they have on board. I highly recommend them to anyone! Also, their attention to detail and personal care skills are out of this world. They really care about what they do! We also use this product to stay ahead of what is going on and to be ready if an attack occurs.

Pros and Cons

  • "Automatic alerts from staying current with the threat landscape have helped us stay safe."
  • "The next release might include a monthly newsletter."

What other advice do I have?

LMNTRIX is amazing. I would hire them now they will not disappoint! I don't have any suggestions at this time, as the product is stellar and their attention to detail is amazing. The personal attention and the software help to detect problems and monitor our network. They have been around a while and their knowledge and expertise are stellar! My only suggestion is for someone who has not tried them to give them a shot. When looking at improvements sometimes you are happy with the provider and you don't know what could be improved.

Saves us money, it is simple to install, and helps us focus on what is important

What is our primary use case?

We wanted 24/7 Incident validation and response, but without paying the hefty costs to run and staff a 24/7 SOC. Finding knowledgeable security analysts is not an easy task. LMNTRIX gives us peace of mind knowing that their highly skilled staff is looking over our enterprise, even at 3 am. When an issue does occur, we have been able to contact them and quickly receive assistance with validation, hunting, forensics, etc., by an entire team of highly skilled and knowledgable security experts.

Pros and Cons

  • "LMNTRIX first validates incidents before alerting us of the activity, so we're not inundated with false positives."
  • "The portal is still a bit buggy, although it's new and still being refined."
