Snyk is a developer security platform that enables development teams to secure their whole application from vulnerabilities. Panther can collect, normalize, and monitor Snyk audit logs to help you identify suspicious activity within your Snyk Organization in real time. Your normalized log data is then retained to power future security investigations in a data lake powered by the cloud-native data platform, Snowflake.
Use Cases for Snyk Audit Logs
Snyk audit logs show various types of activity in an organization's Snyk account, such as user sign-in activity and changes to a user's role. Some common security use cases for Snyk logs include monitoring for:
- User role changes
- Changes to Snyk Group or Organization settings
- Modifications to system or license policies
- Creation, deletion, or modification of service accounts
- Changes to SSO settings
Onboarding Snyk Logs in Panther
Panther has the ability to fetch Snyk audit logs by querying the Snyk Audit API. Setting Snyk up in Panther is fast and easy - you simply need to create a new Snyk log source within the Panther console, generate an API token in Snyk, and submit your key and credentials to Panther.
For more details on onboarding Snyk logs or for supported log schema, you can view our Snyk documentation here.
Parsing, Normalizing, & Analyzing
As Panther ingests Snyk logs, they are parsed, normalized, and stored in a Snowflake security data lake. This allows you to write detections, identify anomalies, and conduct investigations in the context of days, weeks, or months of data.
Panther applies normalization fields to log records, which standardizes names for attributes and enables you to correlate data across all of your log sources. Panther’s intuitive search tools - such as Query Builder, Data Explorer, and Indicator Search - allow you to investigate your normalized logs for suspicious activity or vulnerabilities. For more information on searching logs, check out our documentation on Investigations & Search.
Detection as Code
With Panther, you aren’t confined to restrictive detections or proprietary languages as seen in many SIEM solutions. Panther is built around detection-as-code principles, giving you the ability to write Python to define detection logic and to integrate external systems like version control and CI/CD pipelines into your detection engineering processes. This results in powerful, flexible, and reusable scripting of detections for your security team.
Pre-built detections for Snyk are available by default in Panther, offering users immediate value for monitoring common IoCs and threats. You can explore our built-in detection coverage for Snyk audit logs here.
Panther generates alerts when your detection rules or policies for Snyk are triggered, and integrates with a variety of alert destinations to allow for intuitive management of any alerts. Alerts can also be sent to alert context or SOAR platforms for more remediation options.
Alerts are categorized by five different severity levels: Info, Low, Medium, High, and Critical. Your security team has the ability to dynamically assign severity based on specific log event attributes.
If you have any questions about onboarding or monitoring Snyk logs in Panther, our customer support team is here to help. All customers have access to support via a dedicated Slack channel, email, or in-app messenger.
You can view our documentation on configuring and monitoring Snyk logs here, or customers can sign up for the Panther Community to share best practices or custom detections for Snyk logs.
The Ideal SIEM for Snyk
With Panther, your team doesn’t have to pay excessive costs to keep up with the growth of cloud app data, waste time and resources on operational overhead, or struggle with restrictive detection logic. Panther was founded by a team of security engineers who struggled with other SIEM solutions first-hand, and built an intuitive, cloud-native platform to solve them.
Panther is a cloud-native SIEM built for security operations at scale, offering flexible detection-as-code, intuitive security workflows, and actionable real-time alerts. For a powerful, practical, and scalable SIEM solution for Snyk, request a demo today.
