Full Story:

RSA, The Security Division of EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), today announced the
release of RSA^® Security Analytics – a transformational security monitoring
and investigative solution designed to help organizations defend their digital
assets against today's most sophisticated internal and external threats.
Built on the proven architecture of RSA NetWitness^® technology, RSA Security
Analytics fuses SIEM, Network Forensics, & Big Data analytics into a security
platform that will be the cornerstone of next generation security operations

Any intelligence-driven security program must begin with a comprehensive
understanding of risk facing the organization. Current security technologies,
including SIEM tools, often fall short in this area; they cannot provided deep
enough visibility into today's threats and often cannot scale to today's
analytic needs.

By providing security professionals with the visibility to see and understand
vulnerabilities and attacks, RSA Security Analytics is engineered to enable
the discovery of risks as they occur, thus significantly cutting the time
required for investigations from days to minutes. Furthermore, by helping
security professionals understand digital risks originating from both inside
and outside their enterprise, organizations can better defend business assets,
including intellectual property and other sensitive data, while reducing the
time and cost associated with threat management and compliance-focused

The RSA Security Analytics Unified Platform is designed to deliver:

  oQuick Capture and Analysis -- Security-relevant data, including full
    network packets, logs, and threat intelligence, are captured and quickly
    analyzed to speed up the detection of potential threats.
  oHigh Powered Analytics – Enables much larger-scale collection of data and
    empowers new analysis methods over that of traditional SIEM-based
    approaches to security.
  oIntegrated Threat Intelligence – Helps organizations operationalize the
    use of threat intelligence feeds to accelerate detection and
    investigations of potential attack tools and techniques targeting the
  oContext for Threats – Through integrations with the RSA Archer^® GRC
    platform and RSA^® Data Loss Prevention (DLP) suite, and by fusing data
    produced by other products, analysts can use business context to
    prioritize and allocate resources to the threats which pose the greatest
  oMalware Identification – Using a variety of investigative techniques, the
    solution identifies a much wider range of malware-based attacks.
  oAutomates Compliance Reporting – Helps enable compliance as an outcome of
    good security practices.

The integration of proven Big Data platforms and analytic methods into
security tools provides a significant advancement to how security is
performed. As built, the RSA Security Analytics platform brings together
unparalleled visibility, leverages Big Data platforms and advanced analytic
methods capable of identifying high risk activities, advanced threat
mitigation and meeting compliance objectives.

Analyst Quote:

Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group

"The sophistication of advanced attacks and the associated malware is growing
every day testing the limitations of existing security analytics tools. The
Big Data phenomenon could help address this situation for security
professionals making it important for organizations to rethink their choice of
security solutions. Marrying intelligence-driven security with Big Data
analytics has the potential to help enterprises address the complex problem of
advanced threats and thus meet a significant need in the marketplace."

Executive Quote:

Amit Yoran, Senior Vice President, RSA, The Security Division of EMC

"Organizations must move beyond the constraints of traditional security and
embrace agile technologies and methods for dealing with today's dynamic
threats. RSA Security Analytics is engineered to reinvent security monitoring
and threat detection. By combining high fidelity forensic visibility with big
security data collection and management, and a complete revolution in advanced
analytics, RSA is helping organizations take their security programs and
advanced security operations centers to a new level."


RSA Security Analytics is now available worldwide.
