Narus Releases Early-Warning System for Cyber Attacks

Narus released its next generation cyber protection application built on its NarusInsight Traffic Intelligence system and designed to provide network operators with an early-warning system for cyber attacks such as advanced persistent threats.

The NarusInsight CyberProtection solution provides unprecedented visibility into the network, real-time traffic baselining, pinpoint alerting and continuous monitoring using patented adaptive anomaly detection engines. Narus said its patented adaptive anomaly detection engines continuously monitor the network's behavior, detecting anomalous behavior such as protocol and application tunneling while simultaneously analyzing network traffic in real time. Using these analytical engines, cyber threats are identified early so that network operators can take corrective action quickly.

"NarusInsight CyberProtection is an example of a new generation of adaptive technology used to defend against the fast-changing nature of cyber attacks, such as exfiltration of data and bot activity in an advanced persistent threat environment,�? said Neil Harrington, director, product management, Narus. “Network operators now have a powerful network infrastructure protection tool that provides unprecedented visibility into their entire network. NarusInsight CyberProtection sees what perimeter defenses miss and it detects anomalous behavior early. We help network operators understand normal versus nefarious behavior and provide an early-warning system against attacks."
