Presentation Wazuh

Wazuh fulfils four crucial points in the area of SIEM (Security Information and Event Management). The solution collects and analyses log data from various endpoints such as computers, network devices, cloud endpoints and applications in order to Recognise weak points and secure your infrastructure. The Wazuh agent, which is installed on the endpoints, monitors your systems for vulnerabilities and enables a rapid response to minimise the attack surface. The function SCA (Security Configuration Assessment) identifies misconfigurations and security gaps in your infrastructure, based on the benchmarks of the CIS (Centre for Internet Security). In addition, the Compliance function to comply with and review various legal guidelines.

Wazuh functions

Wazuh offers Real-time alerts and notifications for security incidents. It displays event correlations, integrates threat intelligence feeds and provides customisable dashboards, alerts and reports. This allows you to respond quickly to threats and minimise the impact of security incidents. The Analyses from Wazuh support you in demonstrating compliance with various regulations and standards.

In the area of the XDR (Extended Detection and Response), Wazuh fulfils five important points. The Threat hunting function reduces the time required to analyse telemetry data and gains insights into attacks using the MITRE ATT&CK framework. The collection of threat data from third-party providers further expands the threat search. The Behavioural analysis detects threats based on unusual behaviour patterns and enables a rapid response. The Automatic response threat detection helps you minimise the potential impact on your infrastructure by using built-in or custom actions.

Integration into the Protection of cloud workloads helps you to secure containers and endpoints in the cloud. The use of Threat information is critical to staying on top of current and potential threats. Wazuh offers the ability to integrate with various threat intelligence sources, including open source intelligence (OSINT), commercial feeds and user-supplied data. Through this integration, current threat intelligence can be continuously retrieved and analysed to protect your business from new attacks.

  1. Safety information and incident management
  2. Evaluation of the security configurations
  3. Benchmark for comparisons
  4. Association of organisations to provide resources on the topic of Internet security
  5. Delivery of constantly updated information on threats
  6. Advanced detection and response
  7. Guidelines for classifying and describing cyber attacks and attackers

The comprehensive use of threat intelligence enables Wazuh to proactively respond to changing cyber threats. By continuously analysing and evaluating this data, Wazuh can automatically detect anomalies, identify suspicious activity and provide rapid alerts. This means you are better equipped to optimise your security strategies and continuously protect your company infrastructure.
