Black Hat USA 2011

LAS VEGAS--()--Zettaset today unveiled at Black Hat its new Security Data Warehouse (SDW), the industry’s first solution that enables users to track up to petabytes of business and security data for anomalies and other potentially threatening patterns across an organization’s entire data footprint. The platform was created to empower enterprises as well as small- and medium-sized businesses with the data management and business intelligence needed to deploy and scale the most sophisticated fraud-mitigation and forensic solutions easily and affordably.

To combat “spear phishing” and other sophisticated methods of hacking, Zettaset’s SDW arms risk management professionals with a platform that incorporates into their currently existing SEIM environment, or can be used as a stand alone data warehouse to store network events for compliance purposes. The unique feature of Zettaset’s SDW is that it not only enables users to mine meaningful security information from numerous sources, such as firewalls and security devices, but also from website traffic, business processes and other day-to-day transactions. Users are then able to track patterns of anomalies and visualize deficiencies via typical business intelligence tools, empowering them to make informed decisions to protect critical assets and processes.

“There isn’t a security professional that believes advanced persistent threats are simply one large act,” said Brian Christian, CEO of Zettaset. “Rather, they are multiple reconnaissance hits over a long period of time that allow the hackers to collect enough data to inflict significant harm. Other products on the market lack massive data mining capability, so users don’t discover what happened until it is too late. Zettaset’s Security Data Warehouse gives users the ability to visualize all of data they need when they need it.”

The Security Data Warehouse uses the Zettaset’s patent-pending data management solution—built on multiple high-volume open-source technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, Pig and Zookeeper—to enable users to mine petabytes of current business and security data as well as historical data spanning multiple years.

“We’re starting to see the commercialization of Hadoop outside of vertical use cases for financial services and healthcare and more broadly adopted for analytics across entire lines of business, industry and verticals,” wrote Chris Hoff, information risk management expert and chief security architect at Juniper Networks, in a recent post on his blog Rational Survivability. “One such solution you’ll hear more about is Zettaset who commercialize and productize Hadoop to enable the construction of enormously powerful data security warehouses and analytics. [Zettaset’s solution sources data] from all across the business — including IT — and allows the teams and constituent interested parties from across the company to slice and dice data from petabytes of information which previously would have been silted. Powerful.”

“This exciting new product offering further demonstrates Zettaset’s resolve to democratize big data by providing affordable and scalable platforms and products for both the enterprise and small- to medium-sized businesses,” said Christian. “Traditional data warehousing environments simply lack scalability and are often price prohibitive – two problems that our security data warehouse platform solves.”
