Automated threat verification reduces time- at- risk
A cyber security specialist, to intelligence agencies in some of the world’s most demanding mission critical environments, has introduced the first vendor- agnostic, machine learning- based Automated Threat Verification ( ATV) technology. Huntsman’s ATV automatically verifies whether reported threats are real, if they pose an unacceptable risk to the organization, and what options are available for their mitigation, in seconds.
There is still a tendency to manually process machine- generated information, and this can hinder security specialists working against the clock trying to isolate the real threats from the noise. By eliminating false alarms, and verifying the threats that matter, Huntsman ATV bridges the gap between detection and response by instantly sending high priority information to security analysts for their immediate attention.
Rapid threat containment
In November 2015, Cisco announced the integration of its pxGrid technology with the Huntsman Analyst Portal ® . pxGrid provides a suite of context sharing and network control capabilities that allow Cisco ecosystem partners to extend their reach into the network infrastructure and take “Rapid Threat Containment” actions. “This is the cyber security industry’s first machine- based threat verification technology, and it’s much- needed. Detection technologies and services are becoming more and more effective at generating alerts for wide ranging potential threats, but this has resulted in increasing analyst overhead and delays from threat detection to incident response. There needed to be a way to automate analyst workflows so they can focus on what truly threatens the organization,” commented Richard Byfield, founder and managing director at Datacom TSS.
