BT has launched “BT Assure Cyber”, an advanced security platform designed to offer complete and comprehensive monitoring, detection and protection against cyber threats targeted at private sector and Government organisations.
Bringing together event data and telemetry from a rich variety of sources including business systems, traditional security controls and advanced detection tools, BT Assure Cyber allows vulnerabilities and incidents to be identified and acted on immediately.
It uses a number of advanced analytics engines to detect subtle threats within the monitored environment, and then puts those threats into context within the vast array of events presented to cyber defence analysts and security professionals that would otherwise distract attention from priority incident analysis.
At its core is a “super correlation” engine that uses advanced mathematics to pick out anomalies from within human and machine orientated traffic. This complements traditional anomaly detection methods to gain a heightened situational awareness beyond that achievable with a single method of detection and analysis.
The platform uses a pro-active methodology, informed by a unique risk modelling engine, which puts complex and routine threats into context. This determines how serious a particular attack may be to an organisation, taking into consideration the multiple layers of defence between an attacker and the vulnerable asset subject to attack.
