San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
CyberFlow Analytics, an emerging leader in the IoT and Cyber Security market with its Security Network Behavior Analytics solution FlowScape™, announces the integration with APCON’s IntellaStore II network monitoring platform. The IntellaStore II includes a dedicated application processor pre-loaded with packet analyzer (Wireshark), network performance (nTop), and security/performance (NetFort) applications on a Linux KVM software environment. Customers can install VMware and CyberFlow Analytics FlowScape on the IntellaStore II to enable a comprehensive and high performance network monitoring platform for network anomaly detection. Legacy tools can provide detection of “known” threats, but for IoTand for Enterprise IT the detection of “unknown” threats are provided through Network Behavioral Analytics. The combined hardware/software solution from APCON and CyberFlow analytics will combine two best-of-breed security monitoring solutions that include performance/scale to data center environments.
“CyberFlow Analytics is a great example of a partner that extends our new network monitoring platform with security analytics capabilities” stated Richard Rauch, president and CEO of APCON. “We tested partner applications like FlowScape to help our customers reduce time spent integrating threat management and monitoring solutions.”
CyberFlow Analytics has developed a unique approach to securing both Enterprise IT and their expanding enterprise boundaries of IoT. The IoT world and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication present new attack vectors that organizations are typically unaware of. For industrial IoT and data center environments network behavioral analytics presents a new real-time streaming capability for detection of high-risk anomalies. Many new Industrial IoT manufacturing, energy, and smart cities may not be equipped with the switched infrastructure to properly monitor their networks without impacting performance. APCON specializes in providing network monitoring solutions that scale. The integration of CyberFlow Analytics FlowScape software and the APCON IntellaStore II platform enables networking monitoring scalability including security behavioral analytics.
“Our customers are seeking a high performance and scalable security analytics platform for finding unknown threats in real-time and a new approach to visualizing the threat landscape,” stated Steve Nye, president and CEO of CyberFlow Analytics. “Our partnership with APCON will enable our data center customers to have a pre-tested solution for analytics.”
CyberFlow Analytics has developed a unique approach to “streaming real-time security analytics” by becoming plug and play, zero-config solution. The solution installs in less than an hour and works out of the box. Customers enjoy a no-hassle approach with little configuration, tuning or non-stop arduous rule writing required by other solutions such as SIEMs. The FlowScape system machine learns the normal behavior of customer networks and then through Binocular Fusion Analytics™ across many different behavioral models, detects high-risk anomalies associated with known and unknown threats. FlowScape integrates with Splunk or other SIEMs in less than 15 minutes using an easy FlowScape CyberHooks™ web services integration layer.
