Illusive Networks, a company that specializes in deception-based cyber defense solutions, has unveiled a Forensics On Demand offering for security operations center (SOC) teams. Forensics on Demand enables SOC teams to use the Illusive Platform to reduce their incident response time by up to 90 percent, according to the company.

SOC teams can use Forensics on Demand to initiate forensics collection on targeted machines, Illusive stated. In addition, Forensics on Demand enables SOC teams to retrieve threat intelligence and context, so they can prioritize security alerts.

Furthermore, the Illusive Platform features a forensic API that can be integrated with security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) systems and workflows, the company noted. The platform also delivers forensics from any machine, increases the volume of events that SOC teams can investigate and minimizes false-positive security alerts.
