Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
SparkCognition, the world’s first Cognitive Security Analytics company, announced that its Cognitive Security Insights platform has been selected by NIMBOXX, developer of the industry’s most advanced hyper-converged platform. SparkCognition’s software and its Cloud based service will power security analytics and automated security policy management for NIMBOXX systems.
“By combining all essential infrastructure components into a single, cost-effective system, NIMBOXX is making it incredibly simple for customers to quickly deploy Cloud applications,” said Amir Husain, Founder and CEO of SparkCognition. “Security is an absolutely critical element of any well-run datacenter, and with our Cognitive Security Analytics capabilities integrated into the NIMBOXX management console, customers will benefit from a truly simplified data-center-in-a-box experience.”
SparkCognition’s data-driven security offering is Cloud-based and delivers clients up-to-date security configuration and policies that can be immediately applied to Virtual Machines, Cloud instances, and physical systems in order to protect them from the latest web attacks, remote exploits, scans and application-specific threats. The Cognitive Security Insights offering works by collecting massive amounts of security data and applying patent-pending machine learning and AI algorithms to find trends, patterns and anomalies. These are identified, researched using a variety of techniques in order to reduce false positives, and finally used to generate immediately applicable Linux security configuration, including web server policies, remote login policies and more. As attacks unfold on the open internet, additional Cognitive Insights are developed and used to constantly adapt and improve policies and rules. A configurable agent can optionally run inside individual Virtual Machines to automatically fetch and apply policies, constantly protecting the system from threats.
“Our vision is to deliver the atomic unit of the software-defined data center by converging server, storage, networking, and security, allowing customers to easily deploy sophisticated Cloud applications,” said Trent Fitz, chief marketing officer of NIMBOXX. “We already provide a new level of security for virtual environments and our partnership with SparkCognition really puts us on the cutting edge. This partnership will not only strengthen our offering in highly secure environments, it will also provide all of our customers with peace-of-mind.”
