MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novetta Solutions and Teradata (NYSE: TDC) are partnering in the Americas now, and internationally in 2014, to deliver next-generation solutions for increased visibility into network behavior analytics for information security and cyber analytics. The solutions will provide Network and Security Operations Centers with an unprecedented ability to reduce dwell-time and accelerate interruption of cyber-kill-chains. This new approach to defeat adversaries attempting to attack a network uses advanced, big data analytics instead of conventional signature-based analytics.

The first solution to be offered through the partnership from the Novetta portfolio is Novetta's Behavioral Cyber Analytic solution, running against a Teradata analytics platform for accelerated analytics. The Novetta Behavioral Cyber Analytic application is used to rapidly identify anomalous activity, network infection and insider-threat compromises.

We have a newly armed cadre of cyber hunters to help shift the balance of power in cyber security," said Peter LaMontagne, CEO, Novetta Solutions.

"Our customers view information security and cyber analytics as a large scale data and analytics problem, but have difficulty finding solutions that narrow the gap between network intrusion, discovery and recovery," said John Burke, vice president of industry marketing and solutions for financial services, insurance, health and government, Teradata.  "Teradata's high-performance analytics platform is ideally suited to integrate with Novetta's Behavioral Cyber Analytics solution to improve our customers' cyber security profile and shorten the time to remediation.  By providing greater context and deeper perspective into data in motion on the network, Teradata's partnership with Novetta supports our best-of-breed strategy for go to market solutions and extends our data management and analytics expertise into the realm of information security and cyber analytics."
