The latest release of CTD now enables enterprises to discover and monitor their Internet of Things (IoT) devices, provides customers with greater network visibility, reduces deployment time, and eliminates the “noise” of non-critical alerts. The solution automatically discovers IoT devices on the network and classifies each device based on both static and behavioral attributes. It then identifies known vulnerabilities and other risks associated with those assets, and continuously monitors the environment for threats and policy violations. The new IoT functionality is part of a broader update to the Claroty CTD product. Other enhancements include:
- Machine Learning Alert Algorithm – Optimizes signal-to-noise ratio by correlating all events on the network with online patterns and communication behaviors, prioritizing high-fidelity alerts worthy of investigation.
- Root Cause Analytics — Contextual data and visualization tools illustrate the precise chain of events that triggered an alarm and help improve the speed, efficiency, and accuracy of incident response and threat hunting.
- Claroty Threat Intelligence – Highly-curated and multi-source feeds enrich CTD’s analytics with proprietary research of zero-day vulnerabilities and IoT and OT-specific indicators of compromises linked to threat actors’ tactics, techniques, and procedures.
- Virtual Zones+ — Automatically groups together network assets with similar behaviors and attributes. Once grouped, CTD identifies the relationship between the logical groups and automatically generates granular communication policies. The policies assign permission levels to each zone, along with a specific level of trust to help the end-user understand the risk posed by every logical connection between the zones.
- Expanded Technical Ecosystem — As part of Claroty’s expanding technology ecosystem, Continuous Threat Detection now integrates with the Aruba ClearPass network access control platform and Fortinet’s Fortigate next-generation firewalls.
