Network monitoring solutions provider, NetWitness, today announced availability of its products in a cloud-based offering. To meet expanding operational use cases for cloud-based services and transformational virtual data center architectures, cloud-based option of the NetWitness network monitoring platform provides added deployment flexibility and scalability across all operating environments.
“The very essence of how businesses across all market sectors use information technology is being transformed and challenged by cloud computing,” said Jim Reavis, Executive Director, Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). “Although this rapid adoption creates enormous business opportunity, it also introduces new areas of considerable risk that all organizations must manage appropriately. In the realm of cloud security it is imperative to know everything about what’s happening on the network and obtain timely and complete answers to any potential security questions that may arise.”
“The introduction of cloud-based offerings of our infrastructure and analytic applications provides deployment flexibility to enterprise customers by delivering the detailed visibility they need into advanced threats and sophisticated attacks, previously only available with our appliances,” said Eddie Schwartz, Chief Security Officer for NetWitness.
NetWitness’ solutions provide real-time network forensics and automated threat intelligence solutions and help solve information security problems including: advanced persistent threat management; sensitive data discovery and advanced data leakage detection; malware activity discovery; insider threat management; policy and controls verification and e-discovery.
Last week the company announced plans to unveil what it’s calling a revolutionary approach to automating malware analysis. Using a new methodology that replicates the knowledge, process, and workflow of world-class malware analysts, NetWitness says it can more easily enable the identification of advanced and zero-day malware.
