PacketSled Announces Cloud-based Threat Detection

PacketSled, a start-up based in San Diego, introduced its cloud-based threat detection and response platform as a service -- PacketSled Cloud. The service lets enterprises continuously monitor their networks for evolving threats, detect attacks, and investigate them in real-time.

PacketSled said it deeply examines layers 3-7 of every session on the network in real time, determining the "who, what, when, where, and how" of each session it sees, and securely storing these sessions over days, weeks, months, or years, making a rich forensic history instantly accessible.

"As a society, we've moved from shock that another brand name has been breached to the position of uncomfortable normalcy. CEOs, CISOs, and boards are now being judged on the quality and speed of their response, in addition to the conditions that led to the incident," said Matt Harrigan, PacketSled's President & CEO.

"To date, the tools available to the enterprise have not been usable, scalable or cost-effective enough to get the widespread adoption that will positively impact global cybercrime statistics. Our goal is to make easily consumable breach detection, network forensics, and incident response capabilities  available to everyone," Harrigan added.
