Accenture has launched Accenture Cyber Intelligence Platform that has the capability to examine network flows and DNS data streamed from existing network components to rank suspicious behaviors attributable to malicious cyber attack techniques.
Enterprise CIOs can implement the Accenture Cyber Intelligence Platform within one week. Organizations can easily scale the service as needed, while benefiting from the industry experience of Accenture’s managed security service professionals who run the platform and analyze, interpret and respond to security alerts.
The platform features a customized version of Open Network Insight – an open-source solution that delivers visibility into operational and security threats facing dynamic data centers – and Cloudera’s enterprise data hub. In benchmark testing, the platform proved to deliver up to a 10-fold increase in processing speed versus market alternatives.
Vikram Desai, managing director, Accenture Analytics – Security Lead, said: “Attackers continue to evolve by leveraging data technology, and clients have urged us, as the leading provider of data science solutions, to help them fight back. Our new Accenture Cyber Intelligence Platform gives them back the upper hand.”
IDC analyst Christina Richmond, program director of security services said: “Accenture has created a platform into which a company leverages its network flow and DNS data to draw strong conclusions which can be shared with a broader ecosystem of experts who can work to help companies strengthen their defense capabilities and empower their businesses to move from proactive to predictive threat detection.”
The US-based technology major said Accenture Cyber Intelligence Platform marries advances in chip processor technology with a combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning and streaming analytics to help organizations identify network-born cyber threats in near real-time.
