Compass Security is working on an APT Detection Engine based on Splunk within the Hacking-Lab environment. Hacking-Lab is a remote training lab for cyber specialists, used by more then 22’000 users world-wide, run by Security Competence GmbH.
An advanced persistent threat (APT) is a network attack in which an unauthorized person gains access to a network and stays there undetected for a long period of time. The intention of an APT attack is to steal data. APT attacks target high-profile individuals, organizations in sectors with incredibly valuable information assets, such as manufacturing, financial industry, national defense and members of critical infrastructures.
Although APT attacks are difficult to identify, the theft of data can never be completely invisible. Detecting anomalies in outbound data is what our prototype of an APT Detection Engine does. Helping your company discovering that your network has been the target of an APT attack.
