Detect and remediate attacks early in the attack life cycle, and minimize or eliminate damage potential
Isolate breached computers, stopping attacks at an early stage
Block access to command & control servers and other malicious hosts to prevent additional computers from becoming compromised

Targeted attacks continue to succeed in breaching organizations across all industries. Creative and persistent attackers almost always find an attack vector to achieve a beachhead and then progress an attack within the targeted organization. Traditional security solutions are often blind to subsequent attack stages, when the attacker operates freely inside the organization and conducts a variety of reconnaissance and lateral movement actions en route to perpetrating the objective.


By integrating network traffic inspection, endpoint state, and cloud-based threat intelligence, LightCyber Magna accurately detects compromised systems and stolen credentials inside the organization early in the attack lifecycle. This enables joint Palo Alto Networks and LightCyber customers to rapidly remediate breaches and stop attacks before serious damage is done.

The integration of LightCyber Magna with Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls expands the Magna breach detection solution with remediation capabilities by leveraging the existing Palo Alto Networks security infrastructure to isolate compromised endpoints and block identified command and control channels. The combined solution enables joint customers to dramatically reduce attack dwell time and minimize or eliminate related damage.

LightCyber Magna uses the Palo Alto Networks APIs to modify the firewall policy using PAN-OS Dynamic Address Groups. Blocked addresses are automatically applied to predefined policy groups, which in turn can dynamically update security policies thereby empowering security operators to rapidly isolate compromised devices and command and control channels.

LightCyber Magna Active Breach Detection platform profiles user and device behavior and accurately detects anomalous attack behavior at any time during the active attack lifecycle. Magna employs a unique Multivariate Attack Detection methodology that ingests a wide array of data, including full network context (DPI), endpoint state (agentless) and cloud-based threat intelligence. Focusing
detection upon attack behavior rather than simple technical artifacts of malware enables Magna to be much more accurate and empowers users to rapidly identify and remediate breached devices and user accounts. LightCyber Magna™ delivers a three-step automated methodology, closing the breach detection gap:


  • Behavior-Based Profiling with Multivariate Attack Detection
    — Comprehensive Network-Based (DPI) and Endpoint (Agentless) Inputs
    — Profiles User & Device Behavior
    — Detects Attack Activity Across All Phases of Attack
  • Automates Attack Detection and Diagnosis Tasks


  • Actionable Alerts with Targeted Forensics (2-5 / Day)
  • Associate Malicious Network Behavior and Endpoint State
  • Cloud Expert System Leverages Threat Intel to Augment Accuracy


  • Log Integration with Leading SIEM Platforms
  • User / Device Containment via AD, NAC, & NGFW Platform Integration

Palo Alto Networks is leading a new era in cybersecurity by protecting thousands of enterprise, government, and service provider networks from cyber threats. Because of its deep expertise, commitment to innovation and game-changing security platform, thousands of customers have chosen Palo Alto Networks and it is the fastest growing security company in the market.

Palo Alto Networks security platform natively brings together all key network security functions, including advanced threat protection, firewall, IDS/IPS, and URL filtering. Because these functions are natively-built into the platform and share important information across the respective disciplines, it ensure better security than legacy firewalls, UTMs, or point threat detection products.

With Palo Alto Networks platform, organizations can safely enable the use of all applications, maintain complete visibility and control, confidently pursue new technology initiatives like cloud and mobility, and protect the organization from cyber attacks – known and unknown.
