Innovative Dual-Layered Threat Detection Unveiled
ManageEngine, the esteemed enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, has recently made a groundbreaking announcement in the field of security information and event management (SIEM). Their latest update to the Log360 solution introduces the first-ever dual-layered threat detection system. This innovative feature, now part of the threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) component named Vigil IQ, is set to significantly empower Security Operations Center (SOC) teams by enhancing the accuracy and precision in identifying potential threats.
Addressing Key Challenges in Enterprise Security
Despite the critical role of quality SOCs that combine the strengths of people, processes, and technology, enterprises continue to face challenges. These include staffing shortages and complexities in solution orchestration. In light of these issues, ManageEngine has strategically updated the security analytics module of Log360. The aim is to optimize SOC operations by monitoring key performance metrics, thereby addressing prevalent challenges in security operations.
The Imperative Need for AI & ML in SOCs
As per a recent study by ManageEngine, a notable majority of respondents indicated that their SOCs were understaffed. These resource-limited SOCs face substantial hurdles, such as siloed processes and the manual investigation of alerts, which often turn out to be non-threats or low-priority issues. Manikandan Thangaraj, vice president at ManageEngine, emphasizes the crucial need for adopting AI & ML to enhance event context and revamp threat detection logic. “To overcome these challenges, we recognize the imperative adoption of AI & ML for contextual event enrichment and rewiring threat detection logic,” Thangaraj stated.

The Revolutionary Dual-Layered, ML Approach by Vigil IQ
ManageEngine pioneers a dual-layered, machine learning (ML) approach to elevate the precision and consistency of threat detection. “We pioneered a dual-layered, ML approach to heighten the precision and consistency of threat detection,” said Thangaraj. The first layer of Vigil IQ focuses on differentiating genuine threats from false positives. The second layer aids in targeted threat identification and response. This advanced system notably enhances the accuracy of threat detection, streamlining the process and allowing SOC analysts to concentrate on investigating real threats.
Key Features of Log360’s Vigil IQ
Vigil IQ, the TDIR module of Log360, uniquely blends accuracy and precision in its approach to threat detection. Its dynamic learning capability enables it to adapt to evolving network behaviors, accurately identifying more threat instances and surpassing the limitations of manual threshold settings.
Proactive Predictive Analytics
Utilizing predictive analytics based on historical data patterns, Vigil IQ anticipates potential security threats. This capability allows for the implementation of proactive measures before incidents occur, drastically reducing the mean time to detect (MTTD) threats.
With deep contextual information enrichment, Vigil IQ provides security analysts with comprehensive insights into threats. This enhancement significantly accelerates the mean time to respond (MTTR) by delivering pertinent and precise information.
ManageEngine’s introduction of the dual-layered threat detection system in Log360 is a significant leap forward in the realm of enterprise security. This development not only addresses the current challenges faced by SOCs but also sets a new standard in the efficient and accurate detection of security threats.
