Narus and Teradata (News - Alert) have enhanced their cyber intelligence alliance offering. The newly released nSystem solution from Narus applies automated machine learning to process 100 percent of network packets. Together, the companies claim this effort will result in the discovery, analysis and understanding of every interaction on a network.
By developing rich profiles of every online interaction, nSystem provides deeper context for faster and more accurate awareness of activities on the network.
Offering with Narus leverages Teradata's new Unified Data Architecture, which uses complementary technologies from Teradata, Teradata Aster and open source Apache Hadoop.
Narus is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing (News - Alert) Company and a pioneer in cybersecurity. It is one of the first companies to apply patented advanced analytics to proactively identify cyber threats from insiders and outside intruders.
Sam Harris, vice president, Teradata, recently noted the blurring of borders of networks due to an increase in popularity of such things as laptops and mobile devices.
Businesses are no longer accepting traditional network security tools due to proliferation of polymorphic malware. The drastic increase in network traffic has also slowed forensic analysis, and this has led to a demand in more sophisticated cyber defense technology.
“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 continued.
Teradata is a global analytic data solutions company focused on integrated data warehousing, big data analytics and business applications. The company was in news last month when it was positioned as a leader in the 2013 Gartner (News - Alert) Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management Systems for the fourteenth consecutive year.
