LimaCharlie gives security teams full control over how they manage their security infrastructure. Get full visibility into your coverage, build what you want, control your data, get the security capabilities you need, for however long you need them, and pay only for what you use.

LimaCharlie Sensors enable organizations to collect relevant security telemetry, logs and artifacts in real-time from any source and process that data at wire speed using a universal detection, response and automation engine. Use signature based detections, your favourite threat feed or subscribe to curated detection rules.

An engineering approach to cybersecurity:

  • Endpoint detection & response: Respond to threats at wire speed and create powerful automations. Leverage solutions custom designed for your environment and control your security posture without having to rely on external vendors.
  • Software-defined networking: Secure and monitor network access to your endpoints by providing advanced instrumented Zero Trust VPN access. LimaCharlie’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) makes secure remote networking easy and affordable.
  • Windows Event Log monitoring: Gain the ability to capture and analyze Windows Event Logs (WEL) in real-time. Ingested WEL are indexed along common indicators of compromise and run through the Detection & Response engine.
  • File & registry integrity monitoring: LimaCharlie's File & Registry Integrity Monitoring capability allows you to monitor specific file path patterns and registry patterns for changes.
  • Monitoring cloud deployments: Secure your cloud using LimaCharlie’s advanced Sensor technology. Run in a VM, Docker, or as a privileged container in Kubernetes. Optimize your costs with fine-grained event collection control, autoscaling and automated sensor culling.
  • YARA scanning at scale: Various YARA scanning methods are available. Run a scan on any given endpoint or continuously across the entire fleet in a way that does not impact performance. Pull YARA signatures from Github repositories and other sources, both private and public.
  • Cutting edge detections: Leverage the work of best-in-class professionals with an unparalleled cost efficiency. Subscribe to threat feeds and curated detection rules. Easily write your own custom rules and apply them instantly to your entire fleet.
  • Log and artifact monitoring: Ingest logs, or any file type, from any source and run them through the detection, automation and response engine. One year of full telemetry storage included - not just detections or select entries, but all endpoint, network, and external logs telemetry.

Detect and respond on everything.
