EMC-owned IT-security firm RSA made a series of announcements on day-one of its annual conference in San Francisco Monday.
It started with three new software solutions for security operations centers. They were the Advanced Incident Management for Security (AIMS) software, Asset Criticality Intelligence (ACI) and Data Discovery for Security Analytics.
AIMS helps add a broader incident-management layer to RSA's Security Analytics. This improves the ability to track progress and engage key stakeholders during a security-incident investigation.
ACI is designed to provie business context of IT assets to security teams. The capability helps them prioritize response based on business value of each asset.
The new Data Discovery for Security Analytics was designed to provide risk intelligence and identify sensitive data in complex IT environments. It helps determine potential severity of breaches and prioritize incident response.
RSA also announced availability of its NextGen Security Operations Center services. The services help clients build core foundations for security operations, integrating new security analytics, threat intelligence, incident response and asset critical capabilities.
The service gives clients access to highly trained security practitioners, which provide services tailored to each individual organization.
Juniper launched a series of next-generation security products for data center environments at the conference, fortified by its new Junos Spotlight Secure intelligence service. The service provides intelligence about threats, attackers and individual devices across networks.
This is a cloud-based intelligence service, which, according to Juniper, provides more information about attackers than relying simply on IP addresses, as current reputation feeds do. It creates a “fingerprint” of attacker devices based on more than 200 unique attributes and provides precision blocking of attackers, while avoiding blocking valid users.
Also included in Juniper's announcement were Junos WebApp Secure – a protection solution for web applications, SRX Series Services Gateway integrated with WebApp Secure and Junos DSoS Secure. Both the SRX gateway and WebApp Secure are the first products to use Spotlight Secure intelligence.
