SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moscone Center, 2013 RSA Security Conference -- It started out as a low-level DDoS1 alert on the network of a government agency, but turned out to be a systematic DNS2 enumeration originating from a botnet3. Another government body discovered multiple infrastructure policy violations, including unauthorized equipment and applications connected to and running on their networks. This is one of countless surreptitious security breaches that newly enhanced Narus and Teradata cyber security analytics quickly help clients detect and neutralize.
Narus, Inc., a leader in big data cyber analytics for cyber security solutions, and Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the database analytics company, today announced enhancements to their cyber intelligence alliance offering. Narus 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 interaction to provide deeper context for faster, more accurate awareness. These capabilities are tailored to the needs of organizations seeking high-performance, machine-learning cyber security 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, Director, Enterprise Risk Management, 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 can leverage Teradata's new Unified Data Architecture™, which uses the complementary value of best-in-class technologies from Teradata, Teradata Aster and open source Apache™ Hadoop, to enable users to ask any question, against any data, with any analytic, at any time.
"Teradata provides a single, comprehensive, authoritative environment that integrates information security, cyber security data infrastructure, analytics and reporting," Harris said. "Integration of data gives the chief information security officer deeper, broader visibility to all of the essential material for cyber analysis – at near-real-time speed. This results in better, faster, actionable security information – shrinking the time from detection to remediation – from days and weeks to hours or minutes. Cyber warfare specialists can more proactively defend and protect their complex networks."
"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 delivers the technology needed to implement cyber security 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.
