AccessData unveils unified threat response solution
InSight Platform said to ‘accelerate incident resolution with unprecedented visibility’
Cyber security firm AccessData this week unveiled its InSight Platform, which allows enterprises to "manage the rapidly accelerating volume of data incidents caused by cyber-attacks, mobile risk, GRC (governance risk and compliance) and eDiscovery requests", according to the company.
AccessData argues that the detection of critical cyber-attacks takes too long and the overwhelming volume of data and alerts from IT security tools makes threat management all the more difficult.
"Legacy tools, used to investigate and resolve incidents, are comprised of multiple point products, requiring manual processes and scarce expert talent," AccessData said in a statement.
"As a result, it has become painstakingly difficult and cost-prohibitive to detect, respond [to] and mitigate threats quickly and intelligently, with CISOs and IT departments often simply working to get compromised systems back online, without investigating or resolving events so they can be prevented in the future."
The InSight Platform is designed to enable entire incident detection, analysis and resolution in a single solution with the ability to automate every step. According to AccessData, 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.
"The reality of today's cyber-security world is one of continuous compromise, where every network has unauthorised people doing unknown things at any given time," said Craig Carpenter, CMO, AccessData.
"In an environment of compromise, the ability to continuously detect, quarantine, respond to and resolve such incidents is an absolute must-have for any business or government entity. And with the massive growth and diversity of information, the need to automate as much of the incident resolution process as possible is obvious.
"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."
