“NetCitadel ThreatOptics is differentiated in the industry in its ability to increase security and reduce response times to threats, and we were pleased to be recognized with a Global Excellence Award at the RSA Conference,” said Mike Horn, NetCitadel co-founder and CEO. “Companies turn to NetCitadel to surround detected threats with context and intelligence to make them actionable beyond the waves of security incidents their SIEMs and detection solutions deliver. With NetCitadel, companies can make real-time decisions on how best to address incidents and attacks.”
NetCitadel ThreatOptics provides the industry’s leading threat investigation, mitigation, and containment technology in a threat management platform that leverages intelligent 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.
