DUBLIN, IRELAND and DALLAS - August 19, 2015 - Corvil, the network data analytics company for business in the Now™, and iSIGHT Partners, the leading provider of cyber threat intelligence for global enterprises, today announced a partnership to power a new security solution for joint customers. Leveraging a combination of Corvil’s real-time network visibility and iSIGHT Partners’ deep expertise and insights around advanced adversaries, this integration provides customers with a security solution capable of identifying and reacting to intrusions in true real-time, within microseconds.
While traditional approaches to cyber security have focused on prevention, the ability of attackers to continually iterate and improve, have made it impossible to block all possible threats all the time. Experts have identified detecting resident threats as quickly and accurately as possible as key to reducing the risks of data loss and deeper breaches. Threat intelligence is widely acknowledged as a powerful tool for effective detection and investigation of attack activity. Integrated with real-time, full network visibility, threat intelligence can now be activated across the entire range of a company’s internal and external data flows.
Corvil’s ability to monitor, measure and analyze vast amounts of network data in true real-time have made it the big data analytics solution of choice within Financial Markets, where regulations around automated electronic trading have created a demand for the fastest and most accurate analytics platforms. Because the network sits at the nexus of all a business’s internal and external interactions, the Corvil Network Data Analytics Platform has become a powerful tool for deriving business-level insights to be leveraged for performance, compliance, and now, security.
“As Corvil’s business has grown, so has our understanding of what network data analytics can accomplish,” said Donal O’Sullivan, VP of Product Management at Corvil. “Since the network is the channel through which all a company’s data must flow, it is the only source that can deliver a comprehensive understanding of how all users and applications are interacting in a given moment. In today’s environment of increasingly complex security threats, monitoring network data is the most effective way to quickly identify and act on an attack in whatever shape it takes.”
“As cybercrime becomes increasingly prevalent throughout the world, enterprises must augment traditional preventative tools and develop comprehensive security strategies,” said Karl Hutter, iSIGHT Partners Strategic Partnerships and Channel. “The security industry must embrace new solutions which enable smart detection and rapid response after incidents occur, at scales and speeds beyond what humans can accomplish alone. Our partnership with Corvil will enable enterprises to quickly find sophisticated threats across their network, leverage our adversary database to rapidly hunt for related threats and scale their incident response beyond what has ever been previously possible.”
This integration is available now for customers of Corvil and iSIGHT Partners and will also feature as a key component of Corvil’s new security solution, which is due to be market-ready alongside its launch of Corvil Tera, the next evolution of Corvil Network Data Analytics, this fall.
