Buchanan’s Approach to Managed Security

Every business deserves to be safe from cybercrime. But with modern threats constantly evolving, it is consistently more difficult to manage digital risk and stay ahead of criminals, especially with an industry-wide shortage of security professionals, shrinking budgets, and expanding attack surfaces.
At Buchanan, we are focused on providing businesses of all sizes access to the security they deserve.

Buchanan takes a strategic approach to provide the most innovative managed security solutions in the industry through our people, processes, and technology. This allows us to offer each organization a custom-fit security solution based on its business and security goals.

Buchanan has highly skilled and certified resources available to provide 24/7 guidance and expertise across every aspect of your organization’s security.

From our proactive system monitoring to rapid detection and analysis to incident response and recovery, Buchanan has proven methodologies and processes in place to mitigate risk and ensure your environment remains secure.

Buchanan understands cyberattacks and other threats can bypass even the strictest security controls, which is why we’re constantly evaluating partnerships and technologies to provide robust security offerings for our customers.

Buchanan’s 24/7 Managed Detection & Response

Our unique approach to Managed Detection and Response will ensure that threats to your organization are stopped before they can do any real harm. No provider takes as much of the work off of your plate, or detects as many threats, as Buchanan.

Buchanan’s cloud-native Security Information & Event Management is operated by expertly trained security analysts in our 24/7 Security Operations Center.

This solution aggregates your security and event logs in one place and then takes you beyond mere compliance by applying leading threat intelligence from our carefully selected partner network.

Alerts are quickly investigated using our Machine Assisted Alert Validation (MAAV) process, giving our analysts all the data they need to identify and contain risks to your organization.

Attackers are proactive, so you must be, too.

No MDR solution is complete without a team of threat hunters proactively searching for attackers throughout your environment, utilizing all three types of threat hunting available:

  • Indicator of Compromise Based Threat Hunting: This is the most simple type of threat hunting available and what most of our competitors mean when they say they do threat hunting. Log intensive, this method requires an analyst to search through logs for identifiers (think a known-bad HASH or IP address).
  • Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP) Based Threat Hunting: This requires a tier 2 threat hunter or above to think like an attacker and look for scenario-based attack evidence throughout your network. Buchanan’s approach to hunting for TTPs is systematic and thorough, following MITRE ATT&CK® guidelines.
  • Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR): Start with a digital forensic tool that takes about 8 hours to manually search through volatile memory for malware on a single device and multiply that over 8,000. We can scan and analyze volatile memory from over 1,000 devices per hour, enabling us to proactively use previously labor-prohibitive hunting techniques, leaving absolutely no stone unturned. If there’s anything malicious running or scheduled to run in your environment, our analysts will find it.

The best protection, detection, and response requires telemetry from the weakest point in your networks  the endpoint. No MDR solution is complete without it. Behavioral analysis and threat detection at the endpoint are two of the best ways to protect against ransomware and other malware in work-from-home environments and heavily defended corporate networks alike.

Buchanan has spent countless hours analyzing independent reports and throwing our best penetration testers at EDR solutions so that you don’t have to. This has enabled us to lead the industry with a vendor-agnostic approach and has helped future-proof our MDR program. Our EDR partners can replace your signature-based antivirus solution or help you co-manage your existing EDR solution and integrate it into our MDR solution.

No Managed Detection and Response service is complete without response, yet so often, this is something our competition leaves up to the client.

Because our approach includes Endpoint Detection and Response and Digital Forensics and Incident Response techniques and tools, we have the capability to isolate infected endpoints and stop threats from promulgating throughout your network. We will also give you advice on how to prevent threats from reoccurring as well as any other remediation advice needed.

We are also able to tie our services back into your defense architecture, automatically updating firewall rules, blacklists, and other settings to keep attackers and threats at bay.

If a more thorough incident response is required, we offer full response, recovery, and investigation services as well.

The technology that enables our forensic threat hunters is also integrated with our SIEM, launching forensic investigation every time an alert involves an endpoint. This adds a level of accuracy to our work that is unparalleled. Utilizing this process, our experts are able to work with endpoint, network, and forensic evidence, cutting false positives out of our triage process and allowing your team to focus only on validated alerts.

Strengthen Your Security Program

Cybersecurity experts agree: it’s not a matter of if – but when – your critical data and applications will be compromised due to a security breach or security event of some sort. 

Even if you have technologies in place to mitigate the likelihood of your environment being compromised, you need to have a plan in place to deal with threats head-on if they do occur.

MDR can easily integrate with existing software and technologies in your IT infrastructure to enhance your organization’s overall security, keep your data protected, and detect threats that make it past your perimeter.

Mitigate Risks and Contain Attacks

While the enabling technologies behind MDR greatly reduce your chances of a cyberattack, a significant security event is still possible, even likely. How you respond to it is crucial.

If a breach in progress is detected, you have a better chance of containing the attack with our MDR service since our analysts are always watching and proactively hunting. 

With Buchanan’s MDR solution, our team of analysts will take immediate action to preserve the integrity of your IT network and systems. 

Couple these efforts with automated processes happening in the background – such as changing configurations in firewalls to block access, removing user accounts, or applying security patches – and your organization is well on its way to containing a breach.

Cut Costs Related to Managed Security

As IT environments – and the threats looming over them – are rapidly changing and maturing, it can be difficult to have the staff on hand to adequately address a security event within your organization. 

Hiring security experts and keeping them up-to-date with the training and tools they need to do their job effectively can be quite costly. 

Partnering with Buchanan for your MDR needs can alleviate this issue while providing you with security resources to act as an extension of your internal team.

Reduce Stress and Increase Productivity

With an MDR solution from Buchanan, you won’t have to stress about not having enough resources in place to properly monitor and execute a response plan in the event of a cyberattack.  

Additionally, your IT team can be freed up to focus on other important, revenue-generating initiatives within your company and not have to worry about the day-to-day monitoring and analysis that comes with proper MDR.
