Forensics specialist to showcase cyber response solution at Dubai-based security forum

AccessData announces participation in ISS
Whitburn: [There’s a] dire need for proactive analysis and remediation of… threats.

Computer forensics specialist AccessData Group today announced it will be exhibiting and presenting at the upcoming ISS World MEA Conference being held in Dubai from 4 to 6 March 2013.

The company believes the Middle East is fast becoming a prime target of cyber crime and intends to raise awareness about this growing concern. According to the "Economic Crime in the Arab World" report by PwC, 40% of economic crimes in the Middle East are carried out through electronic channels, which is far higher than the global average of just 23%.

"Sophisticated cyber attacks in the Middle East, namely Stuxnet and Flame, have conclusively proven that while anti-virus, IDS/IPS and DLP remain critical components of cyber security, they fail to deliver the type of comprehensive security necessary in the era of advanced persistent threats and exploits. Our interaction with government, financial, telecom and enterprise organisations in the region has revealed the dire need for proactive analysis and remediation of zero-day threats, hacking, data spillage and advanced persistent threats," said Simon Whitburn, VP international sales at AccessData.

"We intend to arm government and private organisations with the tools necessary to fight cyber crime. With improved investigative abilities, these entities can collaborate to track and bring to justice those perpetuating cyber crime."

AccessData will demonstrate its Cyber Intelligence and Response Technology (CIRT) solution which is designed for continuous network monitoring, data leak prevention, PCI compliance, root cause analysis and real-time incident management through a single, easy-to-use interface.

According to AccessData, "CIRT is the first and only product to integrate network forensics, host forensics, malware analysis and large-scale data auditing into a single solution while providing enterprise-class remediation capabilities. CIRT enables government and commercial organisations to effectively address data spillage, external threats and internal threats, aiding incident response by providing the most comprehensive view into critical data."
