narus Unveils a new generation of cyber protection solution
NarusInsight CyberProtection Provides Enhanced Network Infrastructure Protection,
Acts as Early-Warning System for Cyber Attacks on Critical Networks
Narus, Inc., the leader in dynamic network traffic intelligence, introduced today its next generation of the cyber protection application. This robust application is built on the powerful NarusInsight Traffic Intelligence system and is designed to provide network operators with an early-warning system for cyber attacks such as advanced persistent threats. This highly anticipated release provides unprecedented visibility into the network, real-time traffic baselining, pinpoint alerting and continuous monitoring using patented adaptive anomaly detection engines. NarusInsight CyberProtection provides network operators with enhanced network infrastructure protection by finding and protecting against the most nefarious and persistent threats.
Forrester Research guidance on network visibility tells enterprise owners that they should know what the traffic is doing on all of their networks all the time, not just at the perimeter. Network analysis tools should work by passively sniffing all traffic traversing the network. Enterprise and government communications is so critical to our economy and safety that Forrester anticipates that federal government guidelines on “continuous monitoring” will trickle down to enterprise network policies1.
NarusInsight addresses these challenges. The solution gives network operators unprecedented visibility into the network traffic. It detects anomalous and malicious traffic and alerts network operators of the changes in behavior that signify an attack or network-impacting activity. The patented adaptive anomaly detection engines continuously monitor the network’s behavior, detecting anomalous behavior such as protocol and application tunneling while simultaneously analyzing network traffic in real time. Using these analytical engines, cyber threats are identified early so that network operators can take corrective action quickly.
The solution is also highly customizable, and easily integrates into a customer’s existing security infrastructure, including industry-leading Security Event Information Management (SEIM) solutions. It can be set up to comply with network and security monitoring requirements mandated by industry and government.
“NarusInsight CyberProtection is an example of a new generation of adaptive technology used to defend against the fast-changing nature of cyber attacks, such as exfiltration of data and bot activity in an advanced persistent threat environment,” said Neil Harrington, director, product management, Narus. “Network operators now have a powerful network infrastructure protection tool that provides unprecedented visibility into their entire network. NarusInsight CyberProtection sees what perimeter defenses miss and it detects anomalous behavior early. We help network operators understand normal versus nefarious behavior and provide an early-warning system against attacks.”
