Cloudwick and Brocade to Demonstrate Open Source Adaptive Security (OSAS) at 2016 Federal Forum

Live Demo Shows How Cloudwick OSAS works with Brocade Data Center Fabrics, Intel and Cloudera Big Data and Machine Learning to identify and protect against Insider and Unknown Cyber Attacks

WASHINGTON D.C. — Federal Forum — June 14, 2016 – Cloudwick, the leading provider of open source, cloud and advanced analytics for the modern enterprise, will be demonstrating Open Source Adaptive Security (OSAS) with partner, Brocade, at the Federal Forum today in the Brocade Technology Pavilion.

Cloudwick OSAS, built using Cloudera and Intel open source software, gives security professionals the ability to read 100% of a network’s telemetry data to detect, identify and respond to unknown, lateral and insider attacks using advanced analytics and machine learning at scale. Using OSAS, a security professional can now analyze billions of events per day, providing complete threat visibility to detect and act on lateral and internal attacks that have evaded firewalls and signature based security solutions.

“We’re excited to be working with Brocade, Intel and Cloudera to integrate the Brocade Fabrics with Cloudwick’s OSAS cyber security solution,” said Mani Chhabra, CEO at Cloudwick. “Leveraging the metadata within Brocade’s Data Center Fabrics, OSAS can identify hard to detect lateral, insider and unknown threats quickly and at scale, providing a new class of cyber security at open source and big data volume, velocity and cost efficiency.”

OSAS is built on Cloudwick’s ONI supported cyber security software and is optimized for Cloudera CDH on-premise and cloud. Cloudwick offers OSAS training, software support, professional and managed services to government agencies, enterprises and service providers.

Cloudwick is offered as a data center and cloud cyber security solution. For more information visit Cloudwick OSAS.

Cloudwick Announces Open Source Adaptive Security Managed Solution for the Digital Enterprise

Cloudwick One® OSAS Analyzes Billions of Events to Detect Unknown and Insider Threats

San Francisco, CA – RSA Conference – February 29, 2016 – Cloudwick, the leading provider of bimodal digital business services and solutions, announced today its new Cloudwick One® Open Source Adaptive Security (OSAS) managed solution built using Open Network Insight (ONI), powered by Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub (EDH).

“We are pleased to be launching the first Big Data OSAS managed solution for the digital enterprise,” said Mani Chhabra, founder and CEO of Cloudwick. “Cloudwick One OSAS enables the enterprise to analyze network and cloud traffic and events at big data scale and speed resulting in detection of unknown and insider threats in hours rather than weeks.”

Cloudwick One® OSAS leverages ONI, an open source solution announced by Intel and optimized for Cloudera EDH. Cloudwick One OSAS delivers advanced visibility into operational and security threats by using modern analytics performing at cloud scale. For organizations with dynamic data centers and networks, ONI provides actionable insights into suspicious traffic by analyzing billions of events in order to detect unknown and insider threats.

Key Benefits

  1. Suspicious Connects: Use machine learning to filter out normal traffic and look for patterns in unusual network connections. Patterns can be triaged and high-risk traffic or connections can be reported to incident response, medium passed through to the machine learning, and low risk removed.
  2. Suspicious DNS: Machine learning filters out normal DNS traffic to show patterns in an underlying graph, such as unusual rank order, network or geographical context as it relates to the domain and external threat intelligence.
  3. Storage Prediction: Future storage needs can be predicted based on data accumulation over a period of time, and the more data that exists, the more accurate the prediction.
  4. Incident Response: Take a specific IP address (i.e., one believed to be a potential risk) and gather the details and characteristics of its associated communications to build a timeline of the conversations that originated with it.
  5. Storyboard: Communicate threat intelligence across the organization by presenting results in a storyboard, showing details of the events including: what (impact), how (incident progression), where (geolocation), and when (timeline). Communicate results via interactive visualization as well as text, with a high-level summary for an executive audience, as well as details to address deeper questions.

Most existing non-Big Data OSAS solutions are focused on situational awareness through signature matching and rules and can only analyze millions of daily events. Cloudwick One® OSAS can analyze billions of events in order to detect unknown events and insider attacks and diagnose dark areas. Existing tools produce too many false positives due to poor rule writing, analyzing data without context and long baseline training. Cloudwick One® OSAS delivers fewer false positive alerts by triangulating the data with context to assure alerts are legitimate.

Alan Ross, chief cloud security architect at Intel and ONI core team member, said, “While current threat intelligence tools help, identifying unknown threats and attacks remain a challenge. Open Network Insight accelerates the ability for enterprises and service providers to expose suspicious connections and previously unseen attacks using flow and packet analysis technologies. We are pleased to name Cloudwick as an ONI Committer and to receive Cloudwick’s expert help getting ONI to organizations that need this advanced level of threat protection.”

“We are thrilled to see Cloudwick’s adoption of Open Network Insight and Cloudera’s enterprise data hub, powered by Apache Hadoop, in order to accelerate the development of their cybersecurity managed solution,” said Sam Heywood, director of product management, Cloudera. “We are excited to partner with Cloudwick as they continue to extend the capabilities of their solution as the open source community continues to evolve ONI and Apache Hadoop.”

In addition to meeting Cloudwick in Cloudera’s booth at RSA, see Cloudwick at Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit and Strata and Hadoop World.
