AccessData launches next-gen threat intel solution with InSight Platform

- Traditional incident response infrastructure a fragmented patchwork of tools
- New offering touted as industry’s first continuous and automated incident resolution platform
ACCESSDATA has launched InSight Platform in Singapore, an advanced cybersecurity solution aimed at enabling enterprises to adeptly eradicate and resolve the rapidly accelerating volume of cyber-attacks and data incidents.
In recent years, the incident resolution solutions provider has made significant investments in the country, planting its largest international forensic lab in the island state. It has also acquired a customer portfolio covering a range of government law enforcement agencies, financial services companies and technology companies.
With the growth in advanced persistent threats and cyberattacks, most recently with the Heartbleed vulnerability and major US and UK retailer breaches, enterprises fail to rapidly understand and respond to the hundreds of daily threat alerts across their networks, endpoints and devices.
“The reality of today’s cybersecurity world is one of continuous compromise, where every network has unauthorized people doing unknown things at any given time,” said Jason Mical (pic), vice president, Cyber Security Services, AccessData.
Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and security experts lack the integrated solutions, threat intelligence and context to quickly prioritize and expedite resolution of incidents, the company said in a statement issued.
Golan Ben-Oni, chief security officer and senior vice president of Network Architecture at IDT Telecom said traditional incident response infrastructure is a fragmented patchwork of network, endpoint and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools, which do not interoperate well.
“Security demands real-time, automated response. Integrating my SIEM with AccessData’s InSight Platform has reduced our response times from 12 hours to 2.5 hours. That’s an 80% reduction in response time,” he added.
The InSight Platform is touted to be the market’s first incident resolution solution, working seamlessly with legacy investments to give CISOs and IT departments comprehensive, real-time visibility into threats and incidents and the ability to remediate and resolve them quickly and easily.
The solution enables the entire incident detection, analysis and resolution lifecycle in a single, consolidated platform with the ability to automate every step.
As threats are identified, endpoint and network forensics information, contextual data, and analysis results are automatically obtained, digested and presented in a unified view for immediate analysis.
Delivering on AccessData’s vision of Continuous Automated Incident Resolution (CAIR), the InSight Platform has one common code base that consolidates existing cybersecurity, forensics and e-Discovery products and leverages their combined capabilities to identify and resolve every data incident or data request as efficiently and accurately as possible.
“In an environment of consistent cyber-attacks, the ability to continuously detect, quarantine, respond to and resolve such incidents is an absolute must-have for any business or government entity.
“With the massive growth and diversity of information, the need to automate as much of the incident resolution process as possible is obvious,” Mical added.
