and Response

Cloud-delivered, full packet capture, real-time and retrospective threat detection and visualization.

Solution brief

  • Introduction

  • Verizon challenges the way organizations secure Benefits their networks with Network Detection and Response, a cloud-delivered security platform that is more intuitive, comprehensive and immersive than legacy products that came before it. Lightweight software sensors record complete traffic from any network segment from the DMZ to the core, on cloud networks, and even industrial environments, to establish a high-fidelity memory of the network in the cloud.

    These sensors capture complete network data and send it to Network Detection and Response for storage and analysis. The platform acts as a network defense tool, allowing analysts to explore historical data retrospectively with the most up-to-date threat intelligence. Visualizations in Network Detection and Response can be used for real-time situational awareness or as a forensic workbench for incident response teams and threat hunters. It provides actionable intelligence, including a correlated view of threats, and packet-level forensic capabilities to speed incident response and threat hunting.
