IM Company Flowmon, Continues To Advance Cybersecurity Detection, Analysis, And VisualisationFebruary 21, 2020
New members of the Innovation Martlesham ecosystem, Flowmon Networks, a global network intelligence company, has announced the availability of Flowmon ADS 10.
This new release completely redesigns the presentation of data to its users, providing the ability to respond to threats more quickly without chasing false positives and allowing IT security personnel to greatly shorten incident resolution time.
Today’s threats employ continually changing strategies to avoid detection and hide malicious activity in victim organisations’ infrastructure. To counter this, businesses need technology that finds indicators of compromise instead of relying on signatures, which are well-known and easily sidestepped.
Indicators of compromise provide early warning and are present at every stage of infiltration, from reconnaissance and intrusion, to lateral movement and finally data exfiltration. Flowmon Anomaly Detection System (ADS) provides security professionals with every piece of the incident puzzle and presents it as one clear picture to understand the scope and impact.
“Flowmon ADS 10 derives meaning from the data noise. It presents a holistic view of the situation from the network perspective, enabling real-time threat hunting,” said Tim Jones, regional sales manager for Flowmon Networks in the UK and Ireland. “It enables to respond at early stages of attacks, whether it is a known or unknown malware or a targeted attack. What’s more, root-cause analysis and assessment of incident impact on infrastructure and services streamline cooperation with network teams to ensure a secure and healthy environment.”
Flowmon ADS 10 puts emphasis on utilising as many data sources as possible to provide deeper analysis and easier visualization and 360-degree coverage. The benefits for security operations teams are significant, allowing them to:
- Gain a holistic incident understanding to resolve incident with context awareness
- Streamline threat detection, hunting, and response.
- Reduce information noise by easily flagging false positives
- Facilitate cooperation with network teams on incident resolution
- Enable early-response through the use of machine learning, reputation feeds, and heuristics
Flowmon ADS is a network cyber security solution based on behavior anomaly detection technologies. Its advanced algorithms leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide the ability to detect even the subtlest of changes in traffic as compared to the adaptive baseline highlighting the variance from normal behavior. Detections are based on dynamic techniques rather than dependence on signatures providing zero-day threat detection.
Many modern threats bypass firewalls and anti-virus tools to sneak in the zone between perimeter and endpoint protection. Flowmon ADS helps security operations team to cover this gap by uncovering malicious actors based on their behaviour.The need for the kind of protection offered by Flowmon ADS 10 was highlighted earlier this month, with the high profile malware attack on travel exchange company Travelex.
