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.
