RSA® Security Analytics Leverages Big Data to Help Transform How Organizations Address Their Biggest Security Challenges. New Approach to Security Offers Unparalleled Visibility, Speed and Scale. The RSA® Security Analytics is designed to transform security operations by leveraging the power of Big Data to provide visibility and context required to help identify and defend against advanced security challenges and sophisticated threats.
RSA, The Security Division of EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), today announced the release of RSA® Security Analytics – a transformational security monitoring and investigative solution designed to help organizations defend their digital assets against today’s most sophisticated internal and external threats. Built on the proven architecture of RSA NetWitness® technology, RSA Security Analytics fuses SIEM, Network Forensics, & Big Data analytics into a security platform that will be the cornerstone of next generation security operations centers.
Any intelligence-driven security program must begin with a comprehensive understanding of risk facing the organization. Current security technologies, including SIEM tools, often fall short in this area; they cannot provide deep enough visibility into today’s threats and often cannot scale to today’s analytic needs.
By providing security professionals with the visibility to see and understand vulnerabilities and attacks, RSA Security Analytics is engineered to enable the discovery of risks as they occur, thus significantly cutting the time required for investigations from days to minutes. Furthermore, by helping security professionals understand digital risks originating from both inside and outside their enterprise, organizations can better defend business assets, including intellectual property and other sensitive data, while reducing the time and cost associated with threat management and compliance-focused reporting.
Amit Yoran, Senior Vice President, RSA, The Security Division of EMC says, “Organizations must move beyond the constraints of traditional security and embrace agile technologies and methods for dealing with today’s dynamic threats. RSA Security Analytics is engineered to reinvent security monitoring and threat detection. By combining high fidelity forensic visibility with big security data collection and management, and a complete revolution in advanced analytics, RSA is helping organizations take their security programs and advanced security operations centers to a new level.”
The integration of proven Big Data platforms and analytic methods into security tools provides a significant advancement to how security is performed. As built, the RSA Security Analytics platform brings together unparalleled visibility, leverages Big Data platforms and advanced analytic methods capable of identifying high risk activities, advanced threat mitigation and meeting compliance objectives.
According to Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, “The sophistication of advanced attacks and the associated malware is growing every day testing the limitations of existing security analytics tools. The Big Data phenomenon could help address this situation for security professionals making it important for organizations to rethink their choice of security solutions. Marrying intelligence-driven security with Big Data analytics has the potential to help enterprises address the complex problem of advanced threats and thus meet a significant need in the marketplace.”
