Washington, D.C – July 31, 2014 – In a research note published July 3, 2014 titled “Competitive Landscape: Network Forensic Tools,” Gartner states:
Future Network Forensic Tool (NFT) market leaders will be determined by the breadth of data gathered across disparate security and operational technologies delivering more targeted investigation context and enhancing situational awareness for an identified or suspected threat, anomaly or forensic examination target.
Novetta, the provider of Novetta Cyber Analytics, agrees. “Almost every company today has been breached and they find out when their customers or partners call them, a blog or press release drops the bomb shell, or they find their latest design in the hands of a competitor. Today’s infosec solutions are simply not working. Perimeter defenses are too rigid, and while SIEMs are useful, advanced attackers change the very events and logs that SIEMs use to ‘see’ what is happening, all of which contributes to very poor situational awareness,” says Jim Cushman, a Senior Vice President at Novetta. “The ideal solution monitors and analyzes the ground truth: actual network data. But, most solutions that claim to do this either provide too little information to be effective, or too much information, creating queries that take hours or even days, which is almost useless in an environment with hundreds of daily attacks.”
Currently used as the primary tool to protect our nation’s largest and most attacked networks, Novetta Cyber Analytics has recently been made available for private enterprises to help counter the growing cyber threats to our infrastructure and economy. “Novetta Cyber Analytics uses a metadata-based approach to provide the right network information and traffic in near-real time to a security analyst, network hunter, or incident responder. Now, they can actually think and react as fast as the bad guys versus spending most of their time wrangling data from multiple systems,” says Cushman. “This is exactly the situation the Department of Defense found itself five years ago before turning to Novetta and where most companies find themselves today. Novetta Cyber Analytics was so effective for the DoD that it increased their incidents-responded-to by an estimated 30 times. For the first time, the folks charged with protecting our largest institutions have true near real-time situational awareness.”
