Cloudwick Announces First Open Source Adaptive Cybersecurity Vulnerability Assessment on Cloud or On-premise Powered by ONI and Cloudera

San Jose, CA – Strata + Hadoop World (Booth 1024) – March 30, 2016 Cloudwick, the leading provider of bimodal digital business services and solutions, announced today a new vulnerability assessment for advanced cybersecurity threat detection for on-premise and cloud. This assessment provides unprecedented north-south and east-west DNS as well as internal and perimeter flow vulnerability analysis capable of analyzing more than 30 billion events per day.

At its booth (1024) at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose (March 28-31), Cloudwick will demonstrate its advanced cyber threat detection for complete threat visibility into:

  1. Perimeter & Internal flow attacks by stealthy scanning, side channel data escapes, reflection attacks, unusual data flows and beaconing, and:
  2. DNS threats from tunneling, NNTP and Beaconing

These are some of the most difficult cybersecurity attacks to detect and are costing the enterprise billions of dollars in fraud as well as data and Intellectual property theft.

“Cloudwick is the leader in bimodal cybersecurity,” said Mani Chhabra, founder and CEO of Cloudwick. “We’re working closely with Cloudera, Intel and the cybersecurity community to develop a complete portfolio of ONI based cybersecurity solutions. Our Open Source Adaptive Security Vulnerability Assessment can be implemented within a week on-premise or in the cloud and begin providing threat protection immediately.”

“Our cybersecurity-focused partners are leveraging ONI to accelerate delivery of advanced solutions capitalizing on a pre-built open data model coupled with the powerful compute capabilities of Cloudera’s Enterprise Data Hub,” said Tim Stevens, Vice President, Business and Corporate Development for Cloudera. “Customers are benefiting from these common objects and can easily extend to adjacent use cases beyond cybersecurity: network operations, fraud, and user experience optimization to name just a few. A single source of data built on an open data model creates tremendous value for our customers.”

“It’s terrific to see ONI adoption by so many industry leaders,” said Grant Babb, Chief Security Data Scientist at Intel. “The new world of security analytics requires skillsets in big data as well as the security domain. Security specialists may not yet be comfortable with big data technology like Hadoop, Shark, Scala, etc. Managed solutions like Cloudwick OSAS help bridge the experience needed to implement ONI and gain complete threat visibility for a network.”
