Today’s post continues an ongoing series on Polarity Integrations. Data tells a story, Polarity helps you see it with Augmented Reality overlaying contextual information from the applications you use every day. With over 100 powerful integrations, the Polarity open-source Integrations Library arms you with the right data at the right time to make informed decisions and take action with speed. This example showcases our integration with Illuminate.

Cyber threats are one of the most prolific economic and social threats of our time - a problem that only duplicates as attacks increase day by day. Any organization can be targeted by these attackers, from our most secure strongholds like the White House, which has put an extremely high priority on cybersecurity, to small organizations with fewer resources.

In order to mitigate the risks of cyber threats, organizations need a comprehensive understanding of what is happening inside their network, including if (and what) potential malicious activity is occurring. Whether that malicious activity is coming from insider threats or a threat actor targeting you or your company, Illuminate’s Analyst Platform is a tool that gives you visibility into the data you need most to take action to secure your organization.

What is Illuminate?

Illuminate’s web-based interface provides a single location to collect and analyze evidence of malicious activity and manage indicators, then author, test, task, and track rules to detect malicious cyber activity. Maintaining traceability between evidence, indicators, rules, and sensors, analysts can identify why a rule was created, the type of activity it detects, and what sensors are tasked.

What does the Polarity-Illuminate Integration do?

The Polarity-Illuminate integration allows analysts to have instant data awareness and recall of Illuminate’s platform, regardless of the analysts’ workflow or what screen they are looking at. This functionality enables analysts to see if an indicator has malicious activity or not whenever an indicator is on their screen, whether it’s a hash, IP, domain, or email. Polarity gives you the right data at the right time to make decisions and take action with precision and speed to remediate cyber threats.

See it for yourself:

In this image, notice an IP is highlighted in the suspicious email on the left. On the right, you can see that Polarity's computer vision recognized the text on screen, and in real-time while the analyst is working, it has provided contextual information for the highlighted IP in the Overlay Window. This contextual information has been pulled from Illuminate through the Polarity-Illuminate Integration.
