Zerotect: PagerDuty and Polyverse detect and raise alerts on Zero-Day attacks

By Archis Gore

Today, cybersecurity solutions alert you after an attack occurs but only if that attack is known. Unfortunately, zero-day attacks are inherently difficult to detect as they are by definition an attack that has never been documented. At Polyverse, we build products and solutions that pre-emptively protect our customers against memory-based zero-day attacks. An interesting side effect of our solutions was that for the first time ever, we could detect completely unknown attacks.

In order to easily alert our users to failed zero-day attacks, whether mitigated by Polyverse solutions or otherwise, we built an open-source detection agent called Zerotect.

To better support our customers, we partnered with PagerDuty to integrate Zerotect into their platform. This ensures our customers only ever have a single pane of glass for their security and operational posture. Zerotect raises incidents in PagerDuty each time it detects a foiled attack. This enables PagerDuty users to be alerted on live zero-day attacks and resolve them using a familiar consistent industry-standard experience.

PagerDuty is The digital operations platform, being a remarkably resilient service, with exceptional customer service, exceptional partner experience, simple and open HTTP-based APIs that enable for a healthy ecosystem of tooling and integrations, and not to mention, the very best incident management and remediation.

We are very excited about this integration because we pride ourselves on offering simple solutions to complex security problems and by partnering with PagerDuty we can not only mitigate attacks but also detect them.
