AccessData Introduces InSight Platform(TM), a Next-Generation Threat Intelligence and Incident Response Solution in Singapore



Industry's first continuous and automated incident resolution platform for faster detection, analysis and response to cyber-attacks

Singapore, May 2, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - AccessData, the leader in incident resolution solutions, recently announced the market launch of InSight Platform(TM), an advanced cybersecurity solution enabling enterprises to adeptly eradicate and resolve the rapidly accelerating volume of cyber-attacks and data incidents. In recent years, AccessData has made enormous investment in Singapore, planting its largest international forensic lab in the island state, and acquiring a rich customer portfolio covering a gamut 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. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and security experts lack the integrated solutions, threat intelligence and context to quickly prioritize and expedite resolution of incidents. Watch (http://bit.ly/1mkrv5c) the video interview with Jason Mical, Vice President, Cyber Security Services, in which he talks at length about the security challenges face by various business entities and government agencies, and how they can weaponise their threat intelligence.

The intuitive InSight Platform 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(TM)), the InSight Platform has one common code base that consolidates existing market-leading 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.

"The traditional incident response infrastructure is a fragmented patchwork of network, endpoint and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools, which do not interoperate well," said Golan Ben-Oni, CSO and SVP Network Architecture, IDT Telecom. "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[1]."

"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, Vice President, Cyber Security Services, AccessData. "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. We look forward to delivering enormously beneficial response time reductions, like those experienced by IDT, to enterprises and government entities across the globe."

The InSight Platform is 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.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
