NetCitadel, a provider of threat management solutions, has formulated a new analytics-driven, context aware approach that can help enterprise networks withstand ever growing advanced security relevant product and services attacks and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT (News - Alert)).
Malware attacks and APTs are so frequent these days and they also evolve - making threat detection and enforcement more ineffective. Though new detection solutions are emerging, most organizations have a bad habit of employing only a handful of highly trained security analysts who are in charge of investigating, verifying, prioritizing, and containing the detected threats. They also collect critical context data using time-consuming manual processes which only widens the gap between detection and response.
Mike Horn, co-founder and CEO at NetCitadel, said, “Today’s enterprises require a new paradigm for responding to advanced malware and sophisticated cyber-attacks – what they need is the ability to understand context, quickly analyze the threat, and react in real-time. NetCitadel uniquely enables organizations to significantly reduce the time and effort required to understand and contain detected threats, creating a highly adaptive environment that responds rapidly to new threats.”
NetCitadel also said that its analytics-driven approach integrates rich context data Relevant Products/Services to events generated by threat detection devices such as Advanced Malware Detection (AMD (News - Alert)) systems and Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) devices and the approach can be easily integrated into existing security devices like firewalls and web proxies.
With NetCitadel’s solutions, users can quickly respond to detected security events to bring down and remove potential damage, deploy pro-active defenses across the entire enterprise infrastructure within seconds, and realize better ROI by adding dynamic threat intelligence without having to upgrade or replace existing devices.
The company added that its solution delivers the necessary context in an easy-to-use interface that enables security analysts to quickly verify which issues are real and which issues can be safely ignored.
