Wazuh and Its XDR Approach

  • Hiring and training security people.
  • Creating a secure toolset that enables effective security threat detection and response.
  • Collects data from endpoints, networks, email, cloud frameworks, and other aspects of the security environment.
  • Provides a single interface for security workers to understand and handle data from all layers of the security environment, including endpoints, networks, email, cloud frameworks, and much more.
  • Automates triage and investigation, saving time for security analysts.
  • Reduces the security stack’s overall cost of ownership.
  • Use security technologies not only to retrieve information about an occurrence but also to initiate defensive responses.
  • Allow in-depth data from tools, such as cloud system entitlements or endpoint configuration data, to be queried and altered.
  • Put everything in a single data lake that includes both raw data from integrated security systems and aggregate data from the SIEM.
  • Everything must be stored in a central data store that includes both raw and aggregate data from the SIEM.
  • Improve alert quality and integrate data in innovative ways to construct comprehensive attack tales using powerful machine learning and AI capabilities.
  • What was your initial point of contact?
  • Is there anyone else involved in the attack?
  • Where did the threat come from?
  • How did the danger spread?
  • How was the user infected?
  • The Wazuh indexer is a massively scalable search and analytical engine.
  • The Wazuh server examines the data sent by the agents. It goes through decoders and rules, looking for well-known indicators of compromise using threat intelligence (IOCs). A single server may assess data from multiple agents and scale up when configured as a cluster.
  • The Wazuh dashboard is a data visualization and analysis tool that runs on the web. Dashboards for security events, compliance (such as PCI DSS, GDPR, CIS, HIPAA, and NIST 800–53), found susceptible applications, file integrity monitoring, configuration assessment findings, cloud platform monitoring events, and more are included. It’s also used to keep track of Wazuh’s configuration and status.
  • Users can install the Wazuh agent on all kinds of end devices such as laptops, workstations, servers, cloud instances, and virtual machines. They are capable of threat mitigation, detection, and reaction. They run on a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, AIX, macOS, Solaris, and HP-UX.
  • Agentless devices such as routers, switches, firewalls, and network IDS can also be monitored using the Wazuh platform. For example, system log data can be gathered through Syslog, and its configurations can be monitored by probing its data on a regular basis via SSH or an API.
