Threats Neutralized Here: Narus and Teradata Enhance Offerings for Cyber Defense
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 28, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Moscone Center, 2013 RSA Security Conference -- Narus, Inc., a
leader in big data cyber analytics for cybersecurity solutions, and
Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the database analytics company, today announced
enhancements to their cyber intelligence alliance offering. Narus
today announced its nSystem solution that applies automated machine
learning to process 100 percent of network packets to discover,
analyze and understand every interaction on a network. nSystem
develops rich profiles of every online interaction to provide deeper
context for faster, more accurate awareness of activities on the
network. These capabilities are tailored to the needs of
organizations seeking high-performance, machine-learning
cybersecurity solutions that provide the visibility, control and
content required to protect critical assets.
"Networks continue to increase in complexity and capacity,
challenging organizations to keep their systems fully operational and
secure," said Sam Harris, vice president, Teradata. "The shift to
laptops and mobile devices has blurred the borders of networks; rapid
proliferation of polymorphic malware has tested the effectiveness of
static, signature-based protection; and the continuing swell in
network traffic has slowed forensic analysis while driving storage
costs skyward. Traditional network security tools alone no longer
suffice to maintain acceptable levels of security and operational
effectiveness. Narus' nSystem in conjunction with Teradata creates a
new paradigm for cyber defense technology."
Harris added that the offering with Narus leverages Teradata's new
Unified Data Architecture(TM), which uses the complementary value of
best-in-class technologies from Teradata, Teradata Aster and open
source Apache(TM) Hadoop, to enable users to ask any question,
against any data, with any analytic, at any time. Teradata's global
customer community includes hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies and
government organizations that require real-time insight at the moment
when critical decisions can have the biggest impact. Its largest
customer can manage up to 100 petabytes of data, accessed by tens of
thousands of users, including 50 terabytes of new data per day, while
managing trillions of records and processing millions of queries per
day. Teradata has a long history of delivering subsecond complex
query responses, with more than 20 customers in the multi-petabyte
"In today's hyper-connected world, massive amounts of data enter and
leave enterprises at lightning speed," said Prakash Nagpal, senior
vice president of product management and marketing, Narus. "Narus'
leading big data cyber analytics solutions running on Teradata
deliver the technology needed to implement cybersecurity strategies
to address the threats of tomorrow."
Today's announcement was made at the RSA Conference, the world's
leading information security conference and exposition, where
Teradata and Narus are available for meetings in booth #1841.
Cybersecurity vocabulary notes
-- (1)DDOS, or Distributed Denial of Service, is an attack where multiple
compromised systems can be infected with a Trojan.
-- (2)The Domain Name System (DNS) translates Internet domain and host
names to IP addresses. DNS enumeration is the process of locating all
the DNS servers and their corresponding records for an organization.
Records can yield information such as usernames, computer names, and
IP addresses of potential target systems.
-- (3)Botnets are automated software programs that perform tasks on a
network with some degree of autonomy
