SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - RSA CONFERENCE 2013 -- Narus, Inc., the leader in big data analytics for cyber security solutions, today unveiled the Narus nSystem. Built on the principles of Cyber 3.0, the Narus nSystem uses automated machine learning to process 100 percent of network packets and discover, analyze, and understand every interaction on a network. As a result, analysts have the visibility, context and control required to immediately home in on -- and take action against -- cyber threats that can devastate their organization.
Network and security officials are faced with securing critical assets, a daunting task in today's hyper-connected environment, where massive amounts of information move easily and quickly across people, locations, time, devices and networks. Current-generation cyber security approaches fall short in this environment, due to their reliance on human intervention to sift through and analyze data, find cyber security incidents and identify breaches in security policy. At present, humans can identify the source and behavior of approximately 20 percent of the data on a network, which leaves them scrambling to ensure the remaining 80 percent of the network is protected.
Visibility, control and context are essential in this new environment. They can come only with a drastically increased magnitude of analysis that is achieved through machine learning.
The Narus nSystem: Incisive Intelligence From Cyber 3.0 and Big Data Analytics
Narus is the only company to integrate the principles of Cyber 3.0 with big data analytics, and then build upon them with patented, machine learning that processes 100 percent of network packets to discover, analyze and understand every cyber interaction, and deliver the visibility, control and context required.
The result is the Narus nSystem, which can scan millions of pieces of data and metadata; aggregate data about users, communities, devices and applications; and then delve into the traffic as well as the content behind network behavior. With the Narus nSystem, every interaction is contextualized to help users draw conclusions about patterns and relationships. And semantic analysis provides clear insight into details about location, demographics, topics, interests, roles, personal information, relationships and more.
Users can then discover unknown relationships and contextualize all interactions to gain incisive intelligence based on learned relationships, and predict threats and protect critical assets.
"Securing and managing our current networked world requires the visibility, control and context that can only come with the application of machine learning to cyber security and surveillance," said John Trobough, president, Narus. "The Narus nSystem is the industry's only solution that can deliver this, and subsequently protect our critical assets and our future."
The Narus nSystem will be demonstrated by Narus executives at Booth No. 1841 at the RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco. Please visit the RSA website to register for the event.
