GREYCORTEX JOINS ESET TECHNOLOGY ALLIANCE

Excellent news from Brno!

GREYCORTEX is proud to announce that we have been named as part of the ESET Technology Alliance. In addition to complimenting ESET’s existing endpoint security solutions – by addressing traffic within the network, this relationship means that GREYCORTEX MENDEL is now available through all ESET partners, worldwide. You can read our full press release below:

GREYCORTEX Joins ESET Technology Alliance

Brno, Czech Republic – GREYCORTEX, advanced network security solutions provider, is happy to announce that it has been named as a part of the ESET Technology Alliance which provides holistic protection against advanced cyber threats. Launched in 2013, the ESET Technology Alliance is an integration partnership that aims to better protect businesses by offering a range of complementary IT security solutions. All members of the ESET Technology Alliance are carefully vetted against a set of established criteria to extend “best-in-class” business protection across IT environments.

Through the ESET Technology Alliance partnership, MENDEL, GREYCORTEX’s network traffic analysis solution, is now available to enterprise customers through all ESET partners. MENDEL uses advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analysis to detect threats to enterprise, government, and critical infrastructure networks that other network security solutions miss. It is able to offer rapid detection and response to network security teams, but also gives them the security to know that they can efficiently monitor network performance and visualize the entire network up to, and including the application layer.

Providing effective network security is continually evolving. Security analysts need to be able to identify not just threats like viruses, but also advanced persistent threats like malware, RATs, Trojans, and Zero-day attacks. Analysts also need to know that they have full network visibility on every device and application in the network. MENDEL provides complete network visibility and detailed insight into application and network performance, so that security teams can identify threats before they do damage,” said Petr Chaloupka, CEO, GREYCORTEX.

GREYCORTEX compliments ESET’s existing endpoint security solutions, by addressing traffic within the network. “There are never enough layers of security for one’s network infrastructure,” said Jeronimo Varela, Director of Global Sales at ESET. “The GREYCORTEX solution provides an analysis of any behavioral anomalies that may go unnoticed. Moreover, the solution is easily integrated into the infrastructure of businesses of any size and can work not only as a detection or monitoring tool, but also to provide visibility into the  functionality of additional security components.”

MENDEL, GREYCORTEX’s network traffic analysis solution, helps corporations, governments, and the critical infrastructure sector protect their futures by detecting cyber threats to sensitive data, networks, trade secrets, and reputations, which other network security products miss.

MENDEL is based on 10 years of extensive academic research and is designed using the same technology which was successful in four US-based NIST Challenges.

About ESET
For 30 years, ESET® has been developing industry-leading IT security software and services for businesses and consumers worldwide. With solutions ranging from endpoint security to encryption and two-factor authentication, ESET’s high-performing, easy-to-use products give individuals and businesses the peace of mind to enjoy the full potential of their technology. ESET unobtrusively protects and monitors 24/7, updating defenses in real time to keep users safe and businesses running without interruption. Evolving threats require an evolving IT security company. Backed by R&D facilities worldwide, ESET became the first IT security company to earn 100 Virus Bulletin VB100 awards, identifying every single “in-the-wild” malware without interruption since 2003.

MENDEL: SECURITY AND VISIBILITY IN NETWORK MANAGEMENT

Network management is a stressful proposition, comprising not only the administration of the network, but also maintaining its performance, provisioning devices, etc. With the number of devices in a network growing – due in part to IoT within the office and BYOD which come and go frequently, and the risks of advanced persistent malware, the stress is only increasing.

Luckily, GREYCORTEX MENDEL helps reduce the stress of network administration. According to recent studies, 76% of IT Professionals cite lack of visibility as a challenge in addressing issues in their networks. MENDEL offers full network visibility, up to, and including the application layer, without profiling a specific subnet or host. This means that whenever a new device enters the network, or a subnet or host is moved, identifying vulnerabilities or reconnecting appropriate devices is easy to accomplish.

MENDEL also helps network administrators improve their security, especially against advanced threats hiding within a network. It is common to use firewalls, antivirus, but also SIEMs, IPS, sandboxes, etc to protect a network. These various solutions all overlap for layered security, but each can be defeated.

Currently it takes 46 days to detect a network breach. MENDEL steps into these gaps by identifying anomalous network traffic activity, differentiating between human and machine activity, and integrating robust IDS rulesets to identify threats before they can do damage – often within hours. In some cases, like the recent WannaCry ransomware attack, MENDEL was able to identify the attack in a matter of minutes, well before it could start encrypting files.

MENDEL is based on machine learning and big data analysis. It installs in 30 minutes and can be configured in under two hours. It monitors networks using network traffic analysis without slowing traffic. Because deployment is painless, and network speed is preserved, a risk free 30 day trial is truly “risk free.” To find out more about MENDEL, or to see what may be hiding in your network from a 30 day trial, contact your local distributor or GREYCORTEX directly.
