New Release Delivers Real-time Signature-less Security Analytics at Scale Across Network Devices, Applications, Databases, User Activities and Hosts for Advanced Threat Detection Against Insiders and Cyber Security Attacks
LOS ANGELES and LAS VEGAS, August 6, 2014 — Securonix LLC, the industry-leading platform for security analytics and intelligence, today announced the general availability of Securonix Security Intelligence Platform 4.6, the company’s flagship software platform for enterprise security analytics and intelligence. This new release brings the power of Securonix’s purpose built security analytics into a real-time detection and response across an enterprise environment – network devices, applications, databases, and hosts. The company will demonstrate all of these new features at Black Hat 2014, Aug. 6-7 in Las Vegas, where the Securonix executive team will be joined by company board advisor and former NSA Deputy Director Chris Inglis at Booth 919.
“Securonix customers are rapidly adopting the use of signature-less analytics across their environment to detect and investigate the most advanced security threats. They are now looking for this analytics to be done inline and at the speed of the network. We have re-tooled the Securonix platform with major architecture changes and enhancements allowing us to provide real-time, context-enabled, behavior-based analysis across billions of events per day. This is a huge milestone for Securonix and the security industry,” said Tanuj Gulati, Securonix CTO and co-founder.
Securonix 4.6 builds upon the innovation of previous product releases while adding very scalable real-time analytics, visualization, investigation and response capabilities required to detect advanced cyber and insider threats:
- New distributed architecture with multiple Real Time Analyzers and a Big Data Backbone for continuous inline threat detection
- Out of the box threat models for Data Exfiltration, High Privilege Account Monitoring, Insider Threats, Cyber Threats, Fraud, Data Breaches, VIP Snooping and Cloud Security
- Advanced investigation, visualization and response capabilities purpose built to deal with advanced threats
- Updated risk models and scoring around Dynamic Risk, Static Risk and Inherent Risk
“Distribution of data processing, storage and analytics across a distributed architecture provides our customers with the flexibility to move analytics closer to the source without the overhead of expensive hardware. We have scaled each node in the distributed model to analyze large volumes of data while being conscious of the happenings recorded by other nodes in the Securonix cluster,” said Anjan Shenoy, Director of Engineering at Securonix.
Revamped with a completely new user interface to make it even more intuitive, the Securonix Security Intelligence Platform continues to provide the industry’s leading visual analysis and investigation capabilities for the security analyst.
“Providing a single console for our end users and hiding the complexity associated with cross- node communication at network speed was a very tough problem to solve. We focused our efforts on personalizing views for end users. Our customer advisory team played a valuable role in providing us access to their day to day use of the product,” said Harsh Patwardhan, Director of Usability Engineering for Securonix.
