Certified Bi-Directional Solution Leverages Behavior and Identity Analytics to Promote Detection of Insider Threats and Other Sophisticated Attacks
LOS ANGELES, CA — (Marketwired) 02/24/14 — Securonix announced today that it has received certification for an extended bi-directional interoperability between the Securonix Security Intelligence Platform and the HP ArcSight platform. The interoperable solution delivers an advanced security intelligence offering with breakthrough technologies and capabilities for the detection and monitoring of insider and advanced persistent threats. The solution is the foundation for next generation security operations and the transition to “security intelligence centers.”
Together, the platforms automatically detect the most complex attacks and high-risk events by leveraging powerful behavior anomaly detection capabilities for rapid response. Providing a comprehensive security intelligence center, the solutions work together to detect known as well as unknown threats while minimizing false positives and prioritizing the riskiest events that security teams need to pay the most attention to. The interoperable solution detects anomalous behavior and risk, ranking these anomalies, which enables organizations to focus their efforts on the highest risk events, activities, users, applications and resources. By using adaptive behavior based anomaly detection techniques in conjunction with peer group analysis, the solution detects abnormal usage patterns in extremely large data sets.
“Security analytics is changing the fundamental ways organizations approach all domains of security,” said Tanuj Gulati, Founder and CTO at Securonix. “Insider threats are fast becoming a primary driver for security professionals. Coupled with the transformation of identity and access management programs from being compliance driven to providing tangible security value, security analytics enables the convergence of these disparate data sets and provides unprecedented threat detection capabilities.”
The interoperable solution is certified through the HP ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF) partner program, and is available immediately. It will be showcased at the security industry’s RSA Conference, taking place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, February 24 – 28, where Securonix will be exhibiting at booth #2038.
Securonix and HP will also be hosting a special event during the RSA Conference titled “Uncovering the Insider Threat.” The event will feature a joint customer who will be providing insights into building an Enterprise Insider Threat program that leverages on the combined capabilities of Securonix and HP ArcSight.
