Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform Mean Time to Remediation

Using this solution, have you seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to remediation (MTTR)? If yes, by how much time or percent?

We're also seeing the ability to respond to things in real time, particularly Sev 1 Alerts. We don't have any delay. We get the alert, we can immediately jump in. We use Threat Stack to do some forensics on it, figure out what's actually going on, and resolve the situation very quickly. Fortunately, we've not had any true penetrations, but we've had things that have happened and we've been able to alert on those and make adjustments. It's given us another 50 percent in terms of the time it takes for us to be aware of something. Threat Stack is a great tool for that because it makes you aware more quickly, as opposed to CloudWatch or CloudTrail. The time-to-awareness is significantly decreased because it's an alerting platform. By comparison, it's arduous to write rules that really apply well in CloudTrail or CloudWatch.

There has been a measurable decrease in the meantime to remediation, by 95 percent. It's a ridiculous level of change, I can't speak highly enough about it. When we had security incidents before, if we detected it - and that's "if" because we didn't have the same level of visibility - the remediation cycles could last weeks. The reason for that was trying to understand what the blast-radius of an attack was. It took a long time to figure that out because we were correlating information from multiple tools, trying to link data, and it turned into a big data problem that we had to solve very quickly. Each incident was different so the data sets were different. It was really hard to set up playbooks to do that quickly. But with Threat Stack, because we have so many different tech verticals already collated in one place, our ability to respond is drastically different than it used to be.

We have also seen a measurable decrease in the meantime to remediation in the sense that before, we wouldn't have even been able to detect and then get to the remediation. The remediation wasn't even happening. Now, we're actually alerted to and can start working the security issues. Before, we never would have known, so that's quite the improvement. It's really hard to quantify because we didn't have a good process. We were oblivious to vulnerabilities.
