Solving Cybercrime at Scale and in Realtime

In a recent event organized by Hortonworks, SynerScope and Inter Visual Systems, we discussed using data technologies to solve cybercrime in scale and realtime.


Solving Cybercrime at Scale and in Realtime
Information security is a big problem today. With more attacks happening all the time, and increasingly sophisticated attacks beyond the script-kiddies of yesterday, patrolling the borders of our networks, and controlling threats both from outside and within is becoming harder. We cannot rely on endpoint protection for a few thousand PCs and servers anymore, but as connected cars, internet of things, and mobile devices become more common, so the attack surface broadens. To face these problems, we need technologies that go beyond the traditional SIEM, which human operators writing rules. We need to use the power of the Hadoop ecosystem to find new patterns, machine learning to uncover subtle signals and big data tools to help humans analysts work better and faster to meet these new threats. Apache Metron is a platform on top of Hadoop that meets these needs. Here we will look at the platform in action, and how to use it to trace a real world complex threat, and how it compares to traditional approaches. Come and see how to make your SOC more effective with automated evidence gathering, Hadoop-powered integration, and real-time detection.

Advantage of Central Security Data Lake: 

Cyber Security teams are keen on not only finding threats, but also understanding them. By putting all relevant data out of the silo’ed individual systems and into a central security data lake SynerScope greatly enhances the productivity of the Security Operation Center. The SOC is provided with operationally relevant information on as-it-happens events, as well as given the ability to hunt and discover their unknown risks within their enterprise. SynerScope Ixiwa is used to orchestrate and correlate the data, and SynerScope Iximeer is used for human-in-the loop viewing, understanding and collaboration. This combination greatly speeds up attaching new sources, reducing time to resolution and enhancing the way findings are shared within the SOC.

Secure data transmission in control room environments

Data is a major asset of any organization. Not only for commercial companies, but also for government institutions and other types of organizations, the vast amount of images, video, and data needs to be distributed throughout the organization in a fast and easy way. Control rooms are typically the central intelligence hubs of all information. However, the actual needs of the control room are not limited to the personnel within this room. It is the nerve center to communicate and collaborate with everybody involved. Stakeholders, wherever they are located, expect complete and swift communication about any possible issue and real-time status overviews. The vision of Inter Visual Systems is to offer an solution to distributes data throughout the complete organization to the right location in a fast, easy and secure way. It is even possible to share information between different secured private networks.

Kaspersky and Synerscope join forces to battle cyberthreats with Big Aata Analytics

We are thrilled to announce the partnership between Kaspersky Lab, the world largest privately owned cybersecurity company and SynerScope. We will work together to build a unique innovative offering in the fight against fraud and financially based cybercrime by combining Kaspersky Lab’s powerful Fraud Prevention solutions with SynerScope’s ultra-fast big data analytics technologies. Together, Kaspersky Labs and SynerScope provide a unique sharable interface on cyber data that has tremendous potential. The partnership is set to shape the future of cybersecurity, law enforcement and intelligence services.

CEO of SynerScope, Jan-Kees Buenen says: “With our technology, we can take structured and unstructured data from malware, phishing, spam, texting, social media and digital images and reveal a clearer picture of cyberthreats faced by organisations. This is achieved by running the data through ultra-fast appliances using Dell, IBM and Nvidia components which drastically increases the volume of data that can be brought into scope. In turn, this enables security experts to better understand and make better decisions on how to thwart imminent attacks.” “The future of understanding malware, threats, intrusion and abnormal behaviours lies in data science technologies, ultrafast predictive analytics and machine learning, thus, together with Kaspersky Lab we can take cybersecurity to a new frontier.”

Alex Moiseev, Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab Europe, said he sees great potential in his company’s partnership with SynerScope. “Not only do we see an immediate opportunity to combine our technologies and create an offering of genuine value that can help in the fight against fraud and cybercrime, but we see future opportunities to work together to create cutting edge and never-seen-before solutions to shore up cybersecurity defences and keep the financial industry safe,” Moiseev said. “It’s just the beginning of our relationship with SynerScope, but we can already see a path upon which to walk with them. I am confident that with our combined strengths, intelligence and research capabilities, it’s a path which will lead us to exciting developments in years to come.”
