In this release, we hyper-focused on early detection and containment capabilities of the eyeCon product line, and I believe we really hit the mark”, said Tim Shelton, CTO of HAWK Defense.

HAWK Network Defense, the software manufacturer of eyeContm, a Big Data Security Analytics (BDSA) Platform, today announced the release of eyeCon 5.0. New in this release is V-Stream, HAWK’s patented streaming database technology that delivers streaming analytics of big data to customers resulting in improved speeds for searching, viewing, reporting, and notifications of true indicators of compromise (IOC’s).

HAWK’s eyeCon 5.0 brings the combined power of BDSA and streaming analytics together on an elastic architecture that leverages virtualized environments to deliver rich analytics to customers with traditional IT security data, user, application and asset behavior data flows ranging from full carrier grade loads down to the smallest SMB. The result is a single vendor solution that focuses on early detection and containment of true IOC’s.

“In this release, we hyper-focused on early detection and containment capabilities of the eyeCon product line, and I believe we really hit the mark”, said Tim Shelton, CTO of HAWK Defense. “With the V-Stream technology we developed, customers can now have true instant on-demand query engines at their fingertips. The push-based methodology implemented improved overall usability by getting data painted to the screen several orders of magnitude faster than traditional fetch-and-get architectures. With streaming analytics, incidents are able to be detected sooner and notifications are immediate. The benefit of this is that if a customer is a target of an attack that is sending millions of probes or exploits, they get notified in the early stages of the incident as it is occurring, rather than later after all the data has been collected and analyzed. Analytics engines thrive on robust data and we focused quite a bit on enriching the data as it streamed through the architecture to get richer behavior driven analytics," said Shelton.
