SECURONIX introduces Real Time Intelligent Detection of Insider and External Threats

Announces the General Availability of Version 4.0 of its Security Intelligence Platform

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Securonix, the leader in Security Intelligence software announced today the general availability of Securonix version 4.0. The release combines external global threat intelligence with internal local threat intelligence on users, systems and activities down to the transaction level. In addition, the intelligence can be applied in real time for prevention and rapid detection of threats. Through the unified view of IT risk, Securonix customers are able to detect and even prevent the most advanced targeted, persistent, insider, zero day attacks, enterprise fraud and perform continuous risk monitoring on their environments.

With sophisticated multi-vector targeted attacks on the rise, Securonix delivers the only unified threat detection solution in the market today that empowers organizations to automatically mine and analyze user and system behavior for known and unknown threats in real time. Using advanced statistical analysis, the solution alerts security professionals on malicious events and prevents costly data breaches. In a market that is focused on defensive security and post attack response, Securonix delivers a solution that is proactive, preventive and predictive.

"The 4.0 release is a true game changer in the security industry. The addition of external reputation sources to our advanced behavioral and outlier-based algorithms enables organizations to quickly detect advanced targeted attacks and prevent significant damages from data breaches. It was important for us to run these analytics in real time on the millions of events being captured, so that organizations are able to catch these attacks as they develop. In addition, this release provides a new investigation workbench that allows security analysts to visualize cross-channel data linkages and play out threat scenarios," said Tanuj Gulati, the CTO at Securonix.

"The market continues to struggle with preventing targeted, insider attacks and frauds. The ability to apply multi dimensional signature-less intelligence in real time, provides enterprises with the necessary capabilities to prevent adversaries from penetrating their organizations," said Sachin Nayyar, CEO Securonix.

Among the new features introduced in V4.0 are:
●     Real Time Threat Detection – Securonix now provides the ability to perform behavior, outlier and policy based analytics in memory, thus providing preventative and real time threat and fraud detection capabilities. 

●     Global Threat Intelligence reputation sources – Securonix now has the ability to correlate and index malicious IP addresses and domains associated with malware distribution and alert on traffic inbound or outbound to these sites.

●     Authentication Integration Framework – Securonix now provides a framework to integrate with access management solutions to handle requests for step-up authentication based on real time behavior analytics

●     Threat Lifecycle Management – Provides the ability to manage the entire lifecycle of a threat from detection through investigation and resolution.

●     Integration with Big Data – Securonix now provides integration with Hadoop as well as other big data solutions to enable advanced analytics on big data repositories.

●     Visual Investigative Workbench – Graphing and visualization are now hundreds of times faster through the release of a brand new intuitive, visual user interface that allows for the quick and easy import and visualization of multiple data sources and reports.

Securonix experienced high growth in 2012 with many Fortune 100 companies implementing its solutions and existing customers expanding their implementations.  The company is expecting accelerated growth in 2013 as its technology becomes the choice for companies who are seeking to build intelligence driven, scalable and effective security organizations.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover.

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.
