RESTON, Va., April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ThreatTrack Security today launched ThreatSecure® Network 2.2. Featuring a hub-sensor architecture and embedded IDS engine, ThreatSecure Network makes it easier and more cost effective for enterprises and government agencies to detect and disrupt persistent, multi-stage cyberattacks moving laterally across their networks.
"Large organizations operating sprawling global networks are especially vulnerable to cyberattacks," said Usman Choudhary, chief product officer at ThreatTrack. "They lack enough in-house expertise to deploy analysts to locally monitor all network security operations, and their existing defenses are unable to provide complete visibility into discovered malware and the anomalous network behavior that reveal active attacks. ThreatSecure Network addresses these challenges with innovative new features that make it easier for analysts to identify and respond to attacks across distributed networks from a single dashboard."
ThreatSecure Network provides advanced threat protection that empowers cybersecurity teams to quickly identify and disrupt active cyberattacks. By correlating discovered malware and anomalous network behavior, ThreatSecure Network provides unprecedented visibility across an enterprise's network to uncover malicious intent – the malware infections and lateral movement that indicate a breach or attack is in progress. By delivering all these capabilities in a single solution, ThreatSecure Network gives security teams a comprehensive view of malicious activity on their network for faster, more confident decision making.
ThreatSecure Network 2.2 key enhancements include:
- Hub-sensor architecture – Virtual or physical sensors are placed in multiple locations, where they aggregate and send all traffic to a central hub. The data is then centrally analyzed, making it easy to monitor traffic across network segments and gain an instant, in-depth view of suspicious activity, regardless of where it originated. And because each organization's environment is unique, ThreatSecure Network places no limits on the number of sensors, providing a highly cost-effective, flexible architecture to meet customers' changing cybersecurity needs.
- Embedded IDS – An embedded IDS engine provides additional detection capabilities that strengthen through machine learning to understand the risk of malicious code, a known infected file or bad URL. Suspicious traffic identified by the IDS is automatically analyzed, putting threats into context, revealing lateral movement across the network and delivering actionable intelligence that responders can use to disrupt attacks, remediate malware infections and limit data loss.
- Improved Thressions™ – A core innovation of ThreatSecure Network, Thressions (Threat Sessions) enable security operators to investigate discovered malware in depth by easily visualizing what network activity occurred before, after and at the point of threat detection. This enables analysts to see the lateral movement, malware replication and exploration across their network, which may indicate a breach or attack is in progress. ThreatSecure Network 2.2 data visualizations provide even greater context and make it easier for security teams to view the timeline of an attack across all the devices affected by the original infection, command and control traffic, lateral movement attempts and data exfiltration.
- ThreatAnalyzer® integration – ThreatSecure Network is now integrated with ThreatAnalyzer, ThreatTrack's best-of-breed, fully customizable malware analysis sandbox. Security analysts can submit malware samples to ThreatAnalyzer for more in-depth malware analysis to understand the behavior and subsequent risk any malicious code poses to their environment. This intelligence is delivered within the ThreatSecure Network dashboard, providing a streamlined and efficient process for detecting, analyzing and responding quickly to unknown and potentially dangerous threats.
