Kognos for MSSPs

Deliver More for Less

Machine assistance and AI enables MSSP teams to expand and enhance service offerings

As organizations rely more on MSSPs to augment their workforces– and boost their security efforts – MSSPs have to aggressively offer innovative solutions that will help them:

  • Retain existing customers and gain new ones by reducing MTTD/MTTR metrics to mere minutes
  • Increase revenue opportunities by developing new capabilities
  • Scale efficiencies by leveraging new technologies that provide machine assistance and AI capabilities
  • Improve margins by employing automation that gives time back to security teams

In a highly competitive market where margins are already thin AND there’s a critical cybersecurity skill shortage, new solutions that enable MSSPs to deliver more for less are in high demand. 

Most MSSPs still rely heavily on manual or semi-automated investigations. As a result, alerts take longer to investigate, contextualize, and report. Enter the Kognos XDR Automation Suite, which features machine speed detection, investigation, and mitigation, as well as fully contextualized and pre-investigated visual attack campaign storylines.

Expanded Service and Revenue Opportunities

As security teams continue to search for new tools to combat vendor fatigue, data fatigue, and alert fatigue, they are increasingly turning to automation and integration - knowing these are the keys to solving these problems at scale. For MSSPs, the Kognos XDR Automation Suite presents opportunities to both expand and improve existing service offerings, as well as create new revenue streams. Applied internally, Kognos can dramatically improve the efficiencies of overall security operations - enabling MSSPs to support a 5x to 10x increase in analyst-to-customer ratio. As well, with 3 distinct products to offer customers, Kognos presents MSSPs with multiple, lucrative upsell opportunities.


The Kognos EDR Hunter

Today’s hunting teams are overwhelmed with terabytes and petabytes of security telemetry, and manual mining to identify suspicious behavior or activities is largely untenable – and not scalable.
Alleviating the grueling and time consuming process of manual data mining, the Kognos EDR Hunter continuously generates leads, hunts them down, and reports on the exact scenarios at play in real-time.


The Kognos XDR Hunter

As XDR has emerged as a vital component of enterprise security, MSSPs are now challenged to provide XDR capabilities as a standard offering. The Kognos XDR Threat Hunter enables MSSP hunting teams to digest terabytes of network metadata and gigabytes of diverse application and cloud logs, and fuse all of these events together at machine speed.
As an agnostic platform, the Kognos XDR Threat Hunter connects siloed data to allow hunting teams to better leverage existing tools and identify attackers in action.


The Kognos Automated Alert Investigator

Security teams are overwhelmed with high volumes of alerts. The Kognos Alert Investigator is built with an arsenal of security questions running through AI that understands security, and investigates everything at machine speed – solving alert deluge and its resulting fatigue.
With Kognos, analysts are able to respond to complete attack campaigns – not just alerts – reducing the time and cost of investigations to hours, not days or weeks.

Improve Margins

Whether you provide some or all of the above described services, the costs associated with alert overload, heterogeneity of security appliance, volume of telemetry, and lack of effective automation – multiplied by the number of customers – become a hit on MSSP margins. 

With the Kognos XDR Automation Suite, applied internally, MSSPs can:

  • Reduce triage/investigation time for alerts by 90%
  • Reduce false positives by 95%
  • Reduce post-breach investigation from days/weeks to hours
  • Agnostic to underlying tools as Kognos provides a single pane of glass across all MSSP customers giving a simplified and unified layer for the MSSP analysts. 
  • Enable junior analysts to do complex analysis using the Kognos machine assisted offerings

By having Kognos tackle the weight of EDR and XDR threat hunting, alert triage, and threat investigations, MSSPs add value to their customer offering, scale efficiencies within their internal security operations, expand top-line revenue opportunities, improve bottom-line margins, and up-level the MSSP practice.
