Companies mentioned in this article: Narus, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- (RSA Conference, Booth: #2715) -- Narus, Inc., a leader in big data analytics for cybersecurity software, today announced a Technology Alliance Agreement to certify interoperability between Narus nSystem and HP ArcSight, providing real-time identification of cyber threats resulting from malicious network traffic. The joint solution enables organizations to accelerate time to resolution of cyber threats that often go undetected by other network security products.

"As cyber attacks become more sophisticated and harder to detect, it is crucial for organizations to install security solutions that can quickly resolve threats that put their competitive advantage and critical assets at risk," said John Trobough, president, Narus. "Narus nSystem operates seamlessly with the HP ArcSight platform and provides deep visibility and rich context, filling a significant gap in current enterprise and government security solutions. Narus nSystem identifies and contextualizes advanced cyber threats, and the interoperability with HP ArcSight enables organizations to understand and resolve threats and quickly get back to business."

Narus nSystem's interoperability with HP ArcSight helps organizations rapidly isolate and resolve critical security alerts that can escalate from network anomalies, reconnaissance and data exfiltration of a company's confidential information. In addition, through an innovative combination of pattern recognition and machine learning, Narus nSystem can recognize over half a million mobile and non-mobile applications on a network that pass through boundary protection mechanisms undetected. This ability to recognize existing and newly-introduced applications enhances an organization's ability to take action quickly and mitigate malicious behavior.

"Security analysts can spend an exorbitant amount of time looking for patterns in data from multiple sources at the network, system and application layers, which reduces the time they have to focus on the real cyber threats that can pose a risk to organizations," said Frank Mong, vice president and general manager, Security Solutions, Enterprise Security Products, HP. "The interoperability of HP ArcSight with Narus nSystem enables organizations to associate rich context with critical alerts, minimizing false positives, so that organizations can act swiftly and resolve cyber threats quickly."
