21CT Joins Sourcefire Technical Partner Program

Using 21CT's LYNXeon, Sourcefire Users Harness Unified Security Analytics and Network Visualization to Amplify Perimeter Defenses and Detect Malicious Behavior Hidden Within Disparate Network Data

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- Progressive organizations have begun to implement Next-Gen Intrusion Prevention Systems and other advanced perimeter solutions to better protect themselves from today's dynamic and destructive cybersecurity threats. Sourcefire, now part of Cisco, a global leader in this market, provides solutions that deliver "Integrated Intelligence" to provide not only protection from an attack, but also actionable information during and even after an incident. LYNXeon, from 21CT, is a network behavior analysis and visualization solution that amplifies the protection of Sourcefire solutions, enabling security analysts to expose even more malicious behavior currently hidden across the disparate troves of network data. Today 21CT announced that the company is now a part of Sourcefire's Technology Partner Program.

RSA Conference attendees can use LYNXeon themselves, and potentially win a PS4, while on the show floor by visiting booth 2420 or registering here.

"Security analysts know that there is a big difference between security information and security intelligence," said Mike Hamilton, 21CT director of product marketing. "Data on its own is just information, but the ability to link and fuse data sources, visualize the behaviors and relationships between them, and run analytics to detect undiscovered patterns turns plain old security data into something much more powerful. Sourcefire understands this well with its ability to provide organizations with Integrated Intelligence, and being part of their Technical Alliance program lets 21CT show these companies how unified security analytics and network behavior visualization can provide even more actionable intelligence."

LYNXeon automatically fuses Sourcefire data with other available network data, visualizes it for security professionals, and conducts relationship and pattern recognition analytics to detect previously hidden malicious behavior. Using LYNXeon in combination with Sourcefire enables organizations to:

  • Visualize network behavior and automatically pinpoint malicious conduct.
  • Shorten time required to remediate malignant and noncompliant machines.
  • Empower security analysts to start finding threats today using the data they already have.

The LYNXeon Sourcefire Connector is built to automatically use the high-fidelity data generated from the Sourcefire solution and fuse it together with other critical network security data sources, including other IPS/IDS devices, flow, additional malware detection solutions, DNS logs, monitoring systems, threat feeds, PCAPs and more. Organizations can then establish and expose malicious behaviors and patterns across this data.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
