SAN DIEGO, Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PacketSled, Inc., an industry innovator in next generation threat detection and response, announced the availability of its platform as a service, delivered from the cloud -- PacketSled Cloud.
PacketSled is delivering the next generation threat detection and response platform that allows the enterprise to continuously monitor its networks for evolving threats, detect attacks, and investigate them in real-time.
Today's constantly evolving enterprise requires security solutions that deploy quickly, and provide immediate insight into complex attacks, giving incident responders the data that they need to make the best decisions about how to protect their networks. PacketSled provides the depth of data required to makes these decisions, in real-time by deeply examining layers 3-7 of every session on the network, determining the "who, what, when, where, and how" of each session it sees, and securely storing these sessions over days, weeks, months, or years, making a rich forensic history instantly accessible.
The two largest barriers to entry for customers of breach detection and response technology have been cost and complexity. PacketSled customers will be able to deploy and use basic cloud security services for free, with advanced capabilities available on a consumption basis. The PacketSled sensor deploys in 15 minutes or less through an intuitive interface via RPM or virtual machine.
"As a society, we've moved from shock that another brand name has been breached to the position of uncomfortable normalcy. CEOs, CISOs, and boards are now being judged on the quality and speed of their response, in addition to the conditions that led to the incident," said Matt Harrigan, PacketSled's President & CEO.
"To date, the tools available to the enterprise have not been usable, scalable or cost-effective enough to get the widespread adoption that will positively impact global cybercrime statistics. Our goal is to make easily consumable breach detection, network forensics, and incident response capabilities available to everyone," Harrigan added.
PacketSled is headquartered in San Diego, CA and builds big data security analytics products designed to detect, analyze, and investigate advanced targeted attacks in real-time. http://www.packetsled.com/
