What Keeps You Up at Night?


A wide range of challenges and hair-on-fire moments keep our Nuix Adaptive Security customers and other security professionals up at night. It’s frankly amazing that they get any sleep. While there are challenges that have cropped up more recently—the internet of things, the rise of ransomware, etc.— many of the questions they’re trying to answer haven’t really changed over the years. The things that kept security professional up at night six years ago are still largely the same today:

  • How do I boost the effectiveness of my analysts and incident responders?
  • How do I get more from my budget and security infrastructure?
  • How do we find more accurately what’s important among all the noise?
  • How do we respond quickly and effectively to external and internal threats?
  • How do I get the visibility I need to see what’s going on in my environment?

Traditional endpoint products haven’t quite solved these problems yet. On top of not answering those questions, many still rely on huge agents that are tough to deploy and that slow down day-to-day operations; or offer products that lack fundamental integrations with the rest of the security ecosystem. All these problems make security teams work harder than they need to and make an already complex job even more challenging.

Sometimes it’s the simple things that have the biggest impact.

The September 2018 release of Nuix Adaptive Security focuses on making inroads into solving the lingering questions and challenges security professionals continue to face:

  • Free up endpoint resources and budget. Integration with Windows Defender Antivirus means you can remove legacy antivirus agents, liberating your endpoint resources and budget. From the Nuix Adaptive Security investigator’s console you can receive Windows Defender alerts, initiate malware scans, and review the scan results—at no extra cost.
  • Stay FIPS compliant. Organizations and government agencies can now ensure they are meeting the requirements for protecting sensitive information by turning on the FIPS compliance mode, which uses WolfSSL encryption libraries to meet Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2 Level 1 requirements.
  • Maximize team effectiveness. The new and improved investigator’s console streamlines workflows and reduces the number of steps required to triage alerts, hunt for threats, and respond to incidents. Security analysts and incident responders can spend less time managing the product and more time finding and resolving threats.
  • Reduce the time to resolve an incident. New security dashboards proactively display high-value security and system health information—such as top alerts and connected or disconnected agents—so you can easily prioritize which issues to address first and reduce the time between detecting and resolving the threats that pose the greatest risk.
  • Manage access for greater security and performance. Improved role-based access control provides more flexibility and control when it comes to managing who has access to Nuix Adaptive Security, including what information they can access in the system and what actions they can perform.
