Securonix Unveils SNYPER™, Security Analytics for Hadoop

The Pioneer Behind User Behavior Analytics for Cyber Security Will Unveil the Future of Security Analytics at the 2016 RSA Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 2016) - Securonix, the market leader in security analytics and predictive cyber threat detection, announced today the next evolution of security analytics with SNYPER: Securonix Security Analytics for Hadoop. SNYPER delivers the award-winning power of Securonix analytics with the speed, scale, and affordable, long-term storage of Hadoop in a single, out-of-the box solution.

Large organizations are collecting, archiving and storing massive volumes of data in repositories, without deriving security value from it. SNYPER was purpose-built to translate the billions of events from hundreds of different data sources that big organizations generate daily into accurate risk intelligence and real-time threat detection.

SNYPER ingests petabytes of data, enriches it and then analyzes it in real-time or batch mode to deliver true predictive threat detection. This is done using advanced analytical techniques rooted in machine learning, including user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), unsupervised classification, clustering and a powerful threat modeling engine.

"SNYPER is not only the most sophisticated threat detection capability available, it also seamlessly delivers the benefits of parallelized distributed analytics on a long-term data lake with its out-of-the-box integrated Hadoop deployment," said Tanuj Gulati, CTO and Co-founder of Securonix.

What does SNYPER mean for enterprise security?

  • Distributed Real-Time Analytics: Security and network devices generate billions of events every day. Deriving value from this data has been a major challenge for large enterprises. Leveraging Hadoop's distributed processing architecture, SNYPER can perform in-line data enrichment and real-time analytics to identify advanced threats that would traditionally go unnoticed.
  • Interactive Forensics Investigation: SNYPER introduces SPOTTER™, a blazing fast, natural language search engine that gives investigators all the tools needed to track advanced persistent threats over several years.
  • Data Security & Retention: All machine data ingested, processed, and analyzed by SNYPER is automatically replicated across Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) data nodes to provide fault tolerance. There is no concept of data archiving with SNYPER, all enriched data processed and analyzed by SNYPER is always available for analysis and investigation.

Securonix will unveil SNYPER at the product launch party on March 1st, the second night of the 2016 RSA Conference. Security analytics experts will demonstrate SNYPER, as well as version 5.0 of the Securonix Security Analytics Platform, at the Securonix booth, #1139.
