Course Description

Bricata supplies network security solutions that deliver innovative next generation intrusion prevention, advanced threat detection and analysis, and threat hunting to enable large organizations to actively pursue and identify advanced, persistent, and coordinated attacks.

What is Bro Scripting?

Bro includes an event-driven scripting language that provides the primary means for an organization to extend and customize Bro’s functionality. Virtually all of the output generated by Bro is, in fact, generated by Bro scripts. It’s almost easier to consider Bro to be an entity behind-the-scenes processing connections and generating events while Bro’s scripting language is the medium through which we mere mortals can achieve communication. Bro scripts effectively notify Bro that should there be an event of a type we define, then let us have the information about the connection so we can perform some function on it.

What is Bricata?

A specialized component-based approach to today’s attacks has left organizations with a stack of tools to manage that provide a patchwork of uncorrelated data, leaving penetrable gaps and inconsistent security policies. The Bricata platform provides organizations with process automation, streamlining operations with the most effective, affordable solution for situational awareness and proactive threat defense, reducing complexity, dwell time, and time to containment.

Bricata’s appliances offer a high-efficiency solution delivering innovative next generation, full feature intrusion prevention, advanced threat detection and analytics, and threat hunting. This is the only platform that integrates signature inspection, anomaly detection, and malware conviction engine, with all three engines sharing the workload and expanding the scope and accuracy of attacks. Bricata’s high-performance MX and GX hardware platforms provide the power necessary to provide visibility into high speed networks, while Bricata’s VGX virtual appliances provide the flexibility and ease of deployment necessary for today’s networks.
