The evolution and increased frequency of malware and APTs has reduced the effectiveness of traditional threat detection and enforcement solutions. With nearly 200,000 new malware samples appearing each day 1, new detection solutions have emerged to detect the new attacks, producing more threat events than can be evaluated or managed in a timely fashion. To make matters worse, most organizations have only a handful of highly trained security analysts who are tasked with manually executing the all-important steps of investigating, verifying, prioritizing, and containing the detected threats. The result is that the gap between detection and response is getting wider.
NetCitadel is developing the first threat management platform of its kind, one that addresses the security analysis and intelligence needs of today's incident response teams. This analytics-driven approach uniquely adds rich context data to events generated by threat detection devices such as Advanced Malware Detection (AMD) systems and Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) solutions to facilitate rapid and intelligent decisions. In addition, NetCitadel's solution integrates with existing security devices, such as firewalls and web proxies, to deliver real-time responses to security events.
"We have a rich mix of threat detection solutions to identify potential security events as they happen, but we quickly discovered that visibility was only half the battle," said
Without the proper context, it is almost impossible to prioritize events and make good security decisions. Unfortunately, many security teams are forced to collect critical context data using time-consuming manual processes.
NetCitadel's 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.
"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," said
