Without the proper context, it is almost impossible to prioritize events and make good security decisions. The proper context in an integrated view, however, enables security analysts to quickly verify which issues are real and which issues can safely be deprioritized.
“NetCitadel ThreatOptics solves the industry’s security alert overload problem by automatically surrounding alerts with meaningful context,” said Mike Horn, NetCitadel co-founder and CEO. “We’re pleased to help security analysts and Incident Response teams demonstrably increase their security responsiveness while leveraging existing security resources. By lowering the cost of exposure and increasing security, NetCitadel frees up more IT staffers to engage and positively impact other security priorities in the organization.”
NetCitadel ThreatOptics dynamically updates existing security devices to respond instantly to security events as they are detected. With NetCitadel, once a security event has been detected anywhere in the network, subsequent attempts to connect to the source of the infection will be blocked across the entire network proactively, eliminating widespread outbreaks of the same security threat.
About NetCitadel ThreatOptics
NetCitadel ThreatOptics leverages intelligent threat event context and patent-pending security orchestration technologies to deliver real-time responses to security events. Rich sources of security information, from systems such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Advanced Malware Detection (AMD) and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are seamlessly integrated to work with existing security devices, such as firewalls and web proxies. Deployed as a virtual appliance, ThreatOptics leverages security event information and, based on the information in the security event, updates existing security devices to react to those security events in real-time. By using ThreatOptics, organizations can dramatically reduce the time it takes to respond to an identified security event by enabling either a fully automated or semi-automated response. ThreatOptics uses proprietary security intelligence algorithms to help enterprises determine the severity of a security event as well as the appropriate response to that event.

NetCitadel ThreatOptics will be generally available next month from NetCitadel as a virtual appliance. Pricing begins at approximately $50,000 and goes up based on the number of users and the size of the security infrastructure.
