What is MITRE ATT&CK and How Does it Help?

Developed by MITRE, the ATT&CK® framework is a public knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. ATT&CK, (which stands for Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, & Common Knowledge), enables security defenders to block tactics with more rapid response and accurate remediation. Netsurion integrates the ATT&CK knowledge base into our console, providing single-point-of-visibility and simplifying threat hunting. As a co-managed service, Netsurion Managed XDR offers advanced threat detection without the complexity and time required to implement it on your own.

Use Adversary Behavior to Strengthen Your Cyber Defenses

Netsurion makes cybersecurity easier by integrating ATT&CK into our Open XDR platform for even better actionable threat intelligence. It’s crucial to understand what tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) are used in actual cyber attacks and by which specific threat actors. Designed to improve data protection and your cybersecurity maturity, ATT&CK enhances your readiness against future threats and stealthy adversaries. The ATT&CK capability within Open XDR increases visibility and accelerates detection, all in a comprehensive co-managed solution.
