RSA Conference USA 2015

ATLANTA & SAN FRANCISCO--()--Damballa, a leader in advanced threat detection and containment, today unveiled Damballa Failsafe 6.0, the next generation of its advanced threat detection platform. Failsafe 6.0 leverages a distributed computing architecture that enables the seamless addition of powerful new detection modules, ease of integration with other security technologies, and more efficient processing power. As a result, enterprises can ‘future-proof’ their threat detection platform to deal with current and emerging threats.

“Enterprises around the world have been turning to Damballa for years to help protect against the active yet hidden threats that bypass their prevention layers,” said Brian Foster, CTO of Damballa. “Now, with Failsafe 6.0, we are delivering the industry’s most mature advanced threat detection product, based on years of machine learning using the industry’s largest set of unfiltered, unbiased data set. Our unmatched behavioral and content analysis capabilities provide security teams with actionable context so they can immediately take action, including automating their response.”

In their December 2014 report, “Rules Of Engagement: A Call To Action To Automate Breach Response” (Kindervag, Balaouras), Forrester Research, Inc. noted the criticality of moving beyond manual processes. The report states, “The only way to meet the declaration of the business and prevent the exfiltration of toxic data is to automate the response to a breach. The level of systemic complexity has increased to the point where manual response by security analysts is too difficult and ineffective… There is often a bias against automation, but the maturity of systems is such that truly achieving a valuable and reliable level of automation is now achievable.”

Failsafe 6.0 also includes a Structured Threat Information Expression (STIX) module, which allows enterprises to feed their intelligence into Failsafe and enrich the fidelity of their findings. STIX is a collaborative community-driven effort to define and develop a standardized language to represent structured cyber threat information. Numerous financial services, oil and gas, technology and other leading verticals leverage STIX to share intelligence among their peer groups related to threats specifically targeting their industry.

As a pioneer in advanced threat detection since 2006, Damballa rapidly discovers infections with certainty, pinpointing the compromised devices that represent the highest risk to a business, and enabling prioritized response and refocusing of security experts to the areas of greatest risk to an enterprise. Damballa’s patented solutions leverage the industry’s largest unfiltered data set from global ISPs and enterprises, combined with machine learning, to automatically discover and terminate criminal activity, stop data theft, minimize business disruption, and reduce the time to response and remediation.
