SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- (RSA Conference, Booth #2715) -- Narus, Inc., a leader in big data analytics for cybersecurity solutions, today announced the next generation of Narus nSystem. The new release accelerates the time it takes to resolve cyber threats by delivering visualizations that give security teams the context to understand data intuitively and to discover previously unknown threats. With the ability to integrate into existing infrastructure, Narus nSystem enables organizations to build "zero trust" networks and take a proactive approach to cybersecurity.
A recent Ponemon Institute study found the average annualized cost of cybercrime for 60 organizations was $11.6 million per year. The proliferation of devices, multiple digital identities and a higher rate and amount of data traversing networks have increased the frequency, complexity, persistence and volume of security threats. In addition, the average time from breach detection to resolution is often several months due to lack of information or insufficient context.
"Context is essential for enterprises to determine how to address cyber threats," said Dr. Larry Ponemon, CEO of the Ponemon Institute, a leading cybersecurity expert and industry advisor. "Enterprises are looking for solutions that fit into their existing security framework and enhance returns on their existing investments. Providing solutions that offer rich context required to address threats and enhance ROI is essential."
Helping enterprises respond to threats faster, smarter and cost effectively, Narus nSystem delivers an integrated and intuitive approach to cybersecurity with the visibility, advance warning and data modeling that enables teams to understand and make informed security decisions quickly. Narus nSystem greatly enriches context with its unparalleled ability to identify over half a million applications (including mobile) and provides the ability to visualize the context quickly. With nSystem's advanced visualization framework based on cognitive research, enterprises get answers quickly, allowing them to better utilize their security workforce. Additionally, the software-only approach allows enterprises to leverage their existing hardware, lowering total cost of ownership and increasing ROI.
"Enterprises with cloud, mobile and big data initiatives know that security remains their biggest risk and roadblock to success," said John Trobough, president, Narus. "Narus is experienced in equipping security teams with the necessary tools to help protect and maximize return on their existing IT investments. We enable enterprises to shift their security posture from being defensive and reactionary to being proactive. Powered by the innovation in machine learning and cognitive research, Narus nSystem greatly enriches context and visibility, allowing enterprises to speed up response time and adopt a proactive approach to cybersecurity."
