FireMon Announces New Immediate Insight Threat Hunting App for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework

ANAHEIM, Calif., May 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FireMon, the leader in network security policy management, today unveiled its Immediate Insight Threat Hunting application for the Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE:PANW) Application Framework. Immediate Insight is Firemon’s big data solution for analyzing, investigating and automating threat detection and response. Optimized for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework, the new Immediate Insight Threat Hunting app accelerates threat discovery and analysis by simplifying the integration of data available from the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework into the threat hunting process.

Consuming cybersecurity innovations has become an arduous process. Organizations waste time deploying new sensors every time they want to collect a new piece of data and managing point products rather than improving security controls to stay ahead of attackers. The Palo Alto Networks Application Framework makes it easy to add new security capabilities quickly and efficiently. The framework extends the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, with a suite of APIs that developers can use to connect innovative apps with rich data, threat intelligence and enforcement points. Organizations gain immediate security value from apps developed by an open ecosystem of trusted innovators.

Threat Hunting is the human-driven process of proactively and iteratively searching through network, server, endpoint, application and other datasets to detect and isolate malicious, suspicious or high-risk activities that evade existing security solutions. The Immediate Insight Threat Hunting app for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework is an analytics-enabled investigation and data discovery platform that enables IT teams to accelerate discovery of the unknown in the data. Immediate Insight leverages machine learning, natural language, and social media concepts and workflows to enable threat hunters and security teams to be ten times more efficient in working with structured and unstructured data, spanning public and private cloud.
