Provides network visibilityPT NAD identifies over 85 protocols and parses the 30 most common ones up to and including the L7 level. Get a full picture of what is going on in the infrastructure to identify the security flaws that enable attacks.
Detects hidden threatsThe system automatically detects attacker attempts to penetrate the network and identifies hacker presence on infrastructure based on a wide range of indicators, including use of hacker tools and transmission of data to attacker servers.
Makes SOCs more effectivePT NAD provides security operations centers with full network visibility: know whether an attack was successful, reconstruct the kill chain, and gather evidence. To do this, PT NAD stores metadata and raw traffic, helps quickly find sessions and identify suspicious ones, and supports traffic export and import.
Detects malicious activities in east/west traffic
PT NAD analyzes both north/south and east/west traffic and detects lateral movement, attempts to exploit vulnerabilities, and attacks against end users on the domain and internal services.
PT NAD detects
Threats in encrypted trafficThanks to advanced analytics, PT NAD pinpoints malware hidden by TLS or custom protocols.
Lateral movementPT NAD detects attacker attempts to expand their presence by observing as they engage in reconnaissance, remote command execution, and Active Directory and Kerberos attacks.
Use of hacker toolsThe PT Expert Security Center (PT ESC) investigates complex attacks, constantly explores new threats, and monitors hacker activity. Armed with this knowledge, experts create PT NAD rules for detecting all popular hacking tools in action.
Exploitation of vulnerabilitiesOur unique vulnerability database is constantly updated with data about new vulnerabilities, including ones that have not yet been included in the CVE database. The result: PT NAD detects exploitation attempts in record time.
Positive Technologies is a MAPP member. We receive information about zero-day vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s products. That’s why PT NAD’s customers get protection faster.
Malware activityPT NAD detects activity of malware on the network. Hackers can easily hide malware from antivirus scanners, but hiding their network footprint is much more difficult. By analyzing network activity, PT NAD helps localize threats.
Past attacksEvery time the PT NAD database is updated to fight new cyberthreats, the system checks traffic retrospectively. Even previously unknown threats don’t slip through the cracks.
Malicious evasion from security toolsPT NAD detects DNS, HTTP, SMTP, and ICMP tunnels used by attackers to steal data, communicate with C&C servers, and hide their activity from security tools.
Connection to automatically generated domainsMachine learning in PT NAD identifies connection with domain names that have been created with the help of domain generation algorithms (DGA). This helps detect malware that uses DGA to maintain connection with the attacker’s C&C server.
Non-compliance with IS policiesPT NAD detects weak passwords, transmission of unencrypted data, VPN tunnels, TOR, remote access utilities, proxies, and messengers usually prohibited by security policies at major companies.
Detects even modified malware
PT NAD alerts about all dangerous threats and detects even modified versions of malware. To describe the full range of cyberthreats, our experts constantly explore the latest malware samples and hacker tools, techniques, and procedures. Each rule they create covers an entire malware family.
How it works
Keeps attacks private
PT NAD is an on-premise solution. All data is stored on client infrastructure, never leaving the corporate perimeter. Information on attacks and damage is not transmitted to the outside, minimizing reputational risks.
Security policy compliance
PT NAD detects IT configuration flaws and cases of non-compliance with security policies, which otherwise can offer attackers a way in. Filters help to quickly identify credentials stored in cleartext, weak passwords, remote access utilities, and tools that hide network activity. Pin filters of interest in a separate widget for quick reference. Here is a widget displaying all non-encrypted passwords:
Detection of attacks on the perimeter and inside the network
Thanks to embedded machine learning technologies, advanced analytics, unique threat detection rules, indicators of compromise, and retrospective analysis, PT NAD detects attacks both at the earliest stages and after attackers have already burrowed into infrastructure.
The PT Expert Security Center updates rules and indicators of compromise twice a week. Updating the database does not require a constant connection to the Positive Technologies cloud.
Advanced analytics modules enable identification of complex threats and network anomalies. They take into account many parameters of the attacker’s behavior and are not tied to the analysis of individual sessions, unlike the rules for attack detection.
Investigation of attacks
Because PT NAD saves copies of raw traffic and session data, forensic investigators can:
- Localize attacks.
- Reconstruct kill chains.
- Detect vulnerabilities in infrastructure.
- Take measures to prevent similar attacks.
- Gather evidence of malicious activity.
PT NAD is ideal for threat hunting and detecting hidden threats that standard cybersecurity tools miss. A security analyst, possessing the necessary skills and infrastructure-specific knowledge, can empirically test hypotheses. So PT NAD makes it possible to determine whether a hacker group, insider threat, or data breach is truly present, and if the hypothesis is confirmed, take proactive measures accordingly.
Integrates with SIEM and sandbox solutions
By taking advantage of powerful integration support, users can manage incidents and detect malicious content in file traffic.
