(PRWEB) February 24, 2016
Sqrrl, the security analytics company that enables organizations to target, hunt, and disrupt advanced cyber threats, today announced the launch of Sqrrl 2.5, the latest version of the award-winning threat detection and response platform. Sqrrl 2.5 delivers advanced kill chain analysis, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), and visualization tools that drastically reduce the amount of time an attacker remains undetected in an organization’s network.
“Sqrrl is the recognized leader in cyber threat hunting, a critically important capability for organizations seeking to employ a defense-in-depth strategy, and we’re excited to be offering the most comprehensive threat hunting platform on the market.“ says Mark Terenzoni, CEO of Sqrrl. “We recently were recognized by SC Magazine for bringing threat hunting to the fore, and we continue to deliver the technology that revolutionizes how organizations are developing hunting capabilities.”
Sqrrl’s platform is specifically designed for threat hunters and incident investigators. Hunting is the process of proactively and iteratively searching through networks to detect and investigate advanced adversaries that evade existing prevention and detection tools. More and more, organizations are adding hunting to their incident investigation activities in their effort to modernize how they validate alerts, scope incidents, investigate root causes, and conduct blast radius analyses.
Sqrrl 2.5 puts advanced analytics and visualization techniques in the hands of more security analysts. Key features include:
-Machine learning analytics designed to detect adversaries’ Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs),
-Behavioral risk scoring and linking that use the most powerful form of User and Entity Behavior Analytics,
-Dashboards, profiles, drilldowns and reports that provide analysts with the context needed to recognize and respond to enterprise threats.
These new features further enhance Sqrrl’s automation capabilities, and make it even easier for analysts to start hunting for threats. The release comes just as members of the Sqrrl team will be exhibiting at the RSA Conference taking place from February 29th until March 4th in San Francisco. You can find Sqrrl at booth N4705.
