ThreatConnect and NetWitness: Multiple Apps Allow for Advanced Functionality

ThreatConnect and Netwitness, an RSA business, have strengthened our partnership by releasing multiple Playbook and Service Apps for the NetWitness Platform. With these new apps, you can automate case management, search requests, enrichment, and hunting actions, as well as investigation and response actions. By automating these processes, you ensure that high fidelity intelligence is being sent between the two solutions and that you and your team have all the information needed to make fast and informed decisions.

The NetWitness Platform is an evolved SIEM and XDR solution that functions as a single, unified platform for all your security data. It features an advanced analyst workbench for triaging alerts and incidents, and it orchestrates security operations programs end to end.

NetWitness:  Respond Playbook App/ Respond Service App**

With this Playbook or Service App, you can now ingest Incidents and Alerts from the NetWitness Platform as Cases in ThreatConnect. From there ThreatConnect Workflow can orchestrate a predefined Alert triage process and guide you through a combination of automated and manual tasks to resolve the Incident. Additionally, the original Incident in NetWitness can automatically be updated with a Journal entry containing the results of the investigation, and the status can be marked as closed or as a false positive.

The following actions are available:

  • Get Incident
  • Update Incident
  • Get Incidents By Date Range
  • Add Incident Journal Entry
  • Get Incident Alerts
  • Parse Alert
  • Parse Event

*There is a Playbook App and Service App for RSA NetWitness – Respond. The Service App improves ease of use and performance.

  • Get Host
