Enterprise and government network operators now have the option to utilize Pravail Network Security Intelligence (NSI (News - Alert)), released recently by Arbor Networks Inc., a provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks.
According to the company, Pravail NSI offers cost-effective, enterprise-wide visibility into the network, as well as insight into applications, content and users, in order to better secure the network. This innovative solution claims to offer pervasive visibility throughout the enterprise and stops advanced threats that are usually designed to evade existing perimeter-based security defenses.
This latest solution uses advanced analytics to help organizations to prevent companies from recognizing gaps left by firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS). It monitors the network and delivers the situational awareness required to identify advanced threats, internal network misuse or abuse, as well as infected mobile devices connected to the network.
It even checks on all the activities occurring in, on and around the network, including Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) that are accessing corporate resources, botnet communication and application misuse.
NSI is built using flow-based telemetry and application-layer analytics, to offer security intelligence and to detect advanced malware, according to the company.
Colin Doherty, president of Arbor Networks, said, “Pravail NSI leverages Arbor’s threat detection technology which has been deployed in enterprise networks since 2003. The threat landscape has changed dramatically in the past two or three years, let alone over the past decade. Pravail NSI extends those capabilities to address an acute concern for businesses today, the damage to the bottom line and brand integrity that can come from an undetected advanced or insider threat.”
Representing a unique collaborative effort with 230+ network operators across the globe, ATLAS enables the sharing of real-time security, traffic and routing information that informs numerous business decisions.
