SECNAP Endpoint Detection Agent
24/7 monitoring of data sources from all the devices, hosts, systems, and endpoints on your network.
What is Endpoint Detection?
The most valuable component of your security posture, whether in the cloud, on-premise, or in hybrid networks, is monitoring of data sources from all the devices, hosts, systems and endpoints on your network. This includes collection of all endpoint logs, processing those logs through properly-designed and developed analysis engines, using machine intelligence to identify ordinary events from those representing security or compliance implications, and then having the resulting alerts reviewed by SOC engineers to take appropriate action.
Our lightweight endpoint agent is designed to achieve these objectives — to collect system logs and configuration data in order to detect intrusions and behavioral anomalies that our security experts review and alert on in real-time. Combining this process with the analysis of data from all the other sources from your network, a complete picture of your security posture emerges, and is displayed on multiple dashboards. Our solution is also crowdsourced — information gained from monitoring client’s networks forms a basis for analyzing threat vectors across all of our customers networks.
What does the SECNAP Agent do?
SECNAP Endpoint Detection Agents run on many different platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, AIX, Solaris and HP-UX. Our agent can be used to monitor endpoints, cloud services, platforms and containers, and to aggregate and analyze data from external sources.
Here are the main functionalities of the SECNAP Agent:
- Collects Log and events data
- Monitors file and registry keys integrity
- Inventories running processes and installed applications
- Monitors open ports and network configuration
- Detects rootkits and malware artifacts
- Provides configuration assessment and policy monitoring
- Executes active responses

Why is Endpoint Security so important for the remote workforce?
Here are the top four reasons why endpoint is so important during the remote workforce era:
- Better visibility into endpoints
- Reduces risks from unsecured home networks
- Facilitates security updates and patching assets across various operating systems
- Reducing the Risk of an Infected device reconnecting to the network
Endpoints are a Significant Risk due to Increased Vulnerabilities
Virtually any and every device can be connected to your network, and this influx of additional endpoints gives cybercriminals more access points into your network.
Adding endpoint to your security stack gets you an extra layer of protection that combats ransomware, zero-day exploits, and even inadvertent data leakage resulting from human error.
SECNAP’s Agent is used to collect, aggregate, index and analyze security data, helping organizations detect intrusions, threats, and behavioral anomalies. Fast detection and remediation are key. Our light-weight agent not only provides monitoring and response capabilities but it is also supported by our 24/7 Security Operation Center.
Our agent scans the monitored systems looking for malware, rootkits and suspicious anomalies. They are set to detect hidden files, cloaked processes or unregistered network listeners, as well as inconsistencies in system call responses.
Log Data Analysis
Our agent reads and collects operating system and application logs, and securely forwards them to CloudJacket SIEM for analysis and potentially action from our Security Operations Centers. The agent also assists in identifying application or system errors, misconfigurations, attempted and/or successful malicious activities, policy violations, and a variety of other security and operational issues.
File Integrity Monitoring
SECNAP monitors the file system and identifies changes in content, permissions, ownership, and attributes of the monitored files and directories. We are able to natively specifically identify users and applications used to create or modify files.
File integrity monitoring capabilities may be used in combination with threat intelligence to identify threats or compromised hosts. This function facilitates meeting compliance requirements such as those required by PCI DSS.
SECNAP agents pull software inventory data and correlate it with continuously updated CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure) databases, in order to identify well-known vulnerable software.
An automated vulnerability assessment helps you identify weak spots in your critical assets and to implement corrective action before attackers exploit weaknesses that can sabotage your business or steal confidential data.
SECNAP monitors system and application configuration settings to ensure they are compliant with your security policies, standards, and/or hardening guides. Agents perform periodic scans to detect applications that are known to be vulnerable, unpatched, or insecurely configured. Additionally, configuration checks can be customized, tailoring them to properly align with your organization. Alerts include recommendations for better configuration, references, and mapping with regulatory compliance.
SECNAP provides many of the necessary security controls required to meet compliance standards set by industry and regulatory authorities. These features, combined with its scalability and support, help organizations meet stringent technical compliance requirements.
Cloud Security Monitoring
We help monitor cloud infrastructure at an API level, using integration modules that are able to pull security data from well known cloud providers, such as Amazon AWS, Azure or Google Cloud. We also can assess the configuration of your cloud environment to identify security weaknesses.
SECNAP provides security visibility into your Docker hosts and containers, monitoring their behavior and detecting threats, vulnerabilities and anomalies. Our agent has native integration with the Docker engine allowing users to monitor images, volumes, network settings, and running containers. Our agent in combination with our Security Operations Center continuously collects and analyzes detailed runtime information.
Endpoint Monitored by 24/7 SOC
Although a SOC is usually adopted by security mature organizations, our security-as-a-service platform makes continuous proactive monitoring through our Security Operations Center particularly suited for organizations with limited financial resources.
Our team leverages deep packet inspection to analyze traffic and determine if the traffic is malicious or the event is a false positive. The decision to obtain a SOC is typically a response driven either by regulatory compliance, government regulations, or a client’s policies.
Typically these organizations are processing or holding highly sensitive data which, if breached, could lead to significant compliance issues with heavy fines, and associated negative publicity. Our endpoint security works with multi-layered cybersecurity modules to harden networks from the perimeter and even more importantly on the user level.
