21CT Turns Big Data Into Big Insight With Release of Graph Search for More Powerful Pattern Detection

Company Also Awarded Patent for Faster and More Efficient Graph Search to Quickly Identify and Mitigate Cyber Attacks, Fraud, and Criminal Activity

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - RSA Conference -- 21CT Inc., provider of investigative analytics and pattern-detection solutions, today announced enhanced graph search capabilities for LYNXeon™. Challenged by commodity tools that simply regurgitate log data, enterprises and government organizations need more effective and efficient solutions that can turn big data into big insight. Using the newly enhanced LYNXeon graph search, these organizations now intuitively correlate and visualize data to detect never before seen patterns and gain the operational insight needed to identify embedded cyber attackers, detect fraud, and document criminal behavior.

The company also announced today an additional patent award (U.S. Patent 8,316,060) for rapidly and efficiently performing graph searches on massive data sets, a key technological advantage in 21CT solutions.

Turning Big Data Into Big Insight for Cyber Hunters
"Machine-based attacks can be caught by machines, but today's advanced human-based attacks, whether cyber or physical, require hunters," said Robert Williams, Chief Product Officer, 21CT. "Global organizations and governments have teams of analysts and investigators that use data analysis to hunt out and mitigate cyber attacks, fraud, and criminal behavior. These hunters don't care about the marketing buzz of Big Data, they want big insights in order to detect patterns and get to the right answer, faster. The new LYNXeon graph search capability brings data analytics to a new level, efficiently providing visibility into the links that a hunter can use to get answers and doing it in a fraction of the time of legacy or homegrown solutions."

Today's update to LYNXeon, automatically available to all users under maintenance, enhances capabilities for cyber security analysis, fraud detection analytics, digital forensics investigations, and more, including:

  • Graph Search for Powerful Pattern Detection - The enhanced LYNXeon graph search capability provides users with more effective analysis and visualization of data paths and links. Using this state-of-the-art graph search allows analysts and investigators to:
    • Visualize previously undetectable threats and malicious activity to fortify IT infrastructure
    • Dramatically shorten time-to-detect and increase their ability to investigate potential damage, down to the individual user level, from identified attacks
    • Shorten time-to-mitigate cycles, preventing any further damage to the infrastructure
