Nuix introduces Endpoint Security solution

Nuix has launched an endpoint security platform, Nuix Insight Adaptive Security, which integrates cybersecurity threat prevention, detection, response, remediation, and deception in one solution.

“Previous attempts at applying an adaptive model to security software have failed because they’ve ineffectively cobbled together several overlapping tools that were never intended to work with each other, creating a sort of ‘security Frankenstein’,” said Eddie Sheehy, CEO of Nuix.

“Nuix Insight Adaptive Security is a tightly integrated endpoint defense solution that closes the feedback loop between sensing, filtering, detecting, and disrupting security events earlier in the kill chain.”

Nuix Insight Adaptive Security combines six security technologies into one lightweight, intelligent endpoint agent, featuring:

  • Digital Behavior Recorder: Continuously monitors and records endpoint activity straight from the kernel, including users, processes, Windows Registry changes, user sessions, DNS queries, file system information, Netflow communications, removable media, and print jobs;
  • Real-time detection: A multilayered threat detection stack that automatically identifies malicious activity;
  • Intelligent protection: Includes whitelisting, blacklisting, application control, and behavioral blocking;
  • Response and investigation: Automated and manual options including incident triage and investigation capabilities allowing security analysts to search, filter, and organise single or multiple data sets collected by the Digital Behavior Recorder;
  • Remediation: Allows analysts to terminate malicious processes based on their process identifier (PID) and to delete files and Windows Registry keys; and
  • Deception: Fake listening services that help analysts identify attackers during the reconnaissance phase of their attacks.

To understand the continuously changing threat landscape and the challenges it presents to organisations’ security posture, Nuix employs a team of security consultants including pentesters, incident response experts, social engineers, and digital forensic professionals. Through field activities and client engagements, these consultants stay up to date with evolving security threats and attack techniques. Nuix then incorporates the intelligence they gather into the platform’s logic engine so it can take automatic actions that help protect customers from advanced attacks.

Nuix Insight Adaptive Security is now available to enterprise customers who join Nuix’s Early Adopters Program. It is the first release from the Nuix Insight range of security and intelligence products. Later in 2016, Nuix will release Nuix Insight Analytics & Intelligence, a four-dimensional security intelligence platform for breach investigations, deep-dive forensics, and analysis.
