Narus has been an IBM Netezza Complementary Technology Partner since 2010. The partnership has leveraged the strengths of both companies’ cybersecurity technology to deliver protection against today’s most-pressing web threats, including Advanced Persistent Threats and zero-day attacks.
Through the partnership the two companies deliver a solution that combines Narus’ real-time network traffic monitoring and analytics with IBM Netezza’s large-scale data analytics and data warehousing capabilities to identify malicious activities and determine the entire history of the cyber threat. The combined capability will aid network and security operators to take appropriate corrective actions quickly.
The combined solution enables users to:
- Conduct quick, efficient and accelerated search or dynamic query through huge volumes of data
- Take corrective actions quickly by easily digesting and analyzing the large volume of detailed information captured and analyzed by NarusInsight on every flow in the network
- Perform complex forensics analysis on data stored over extended periods of time to address questions such as: “When in the last year did each DNS server in my network appear?” “How many queries did each of them answer?” and “Who talked to each of these DNS servers?”
“Protection of networks and infrastructures is becoming more and more difficult as cyber attacks increase in frequency and stealth,” said Chee Tan, director of business development, Narus. “This is where strong partnerships and complementary solutions can level the playing field. Our partnership with Netezza leverages our respective expertise to ensure a unique cybersecurity solution that will undoubtedly set a high bar in the cybe security industry.”
