Endace has unveiled plans to partner with BluVector in the global market, with the Auckland-based provider hosting advanced threat detection solutions via its analytics platform.

Revealed during RSA Conference in San Francisco, terms of the agreement will see Endace host BluVector Cortex through EndaceProbe, in a bid to combine network and security operations.

Headquartered in Virginia, US, BluVector operates as a next-generation machine learning security vendor, specialising in advanced threat detection across enterprise organisations.

Specifically, the partnership will create an offering leveraging both network operations (NetOps) and security operations (SecOps), designed to provide customers with detection driven by artificial intelligence.

“The sophistication and evolution of today’s cyber adversaries continues to accelerate, as does the number of successful intrusions,” Endace CEO, Stuart Wilson, said. “This makes network security even more important in today’s connected world.

“But an intrusion doesn’t have to lead to a major breach or cyber incident. The partnership between BluVector and Endace combines state-of-the-art threat detection with the accurate packet-level evidence needed to investigate, respond to and neutralise cyber intruders quickly and efficiently.”

Wilson said the combined solution collects information from thousands of disparate data sources, then analyses and prioritises the data and events.

The resulting information becomes instantly available to SecOps teams, delivering "contextual data" to quickly understand the threat and its severity level.

Delving deeper, Wilson said Endace’s API integration with BluVector also streamlines investigations, allowing analysts to click from an alert directly to the related packet history to gain greater levels of visibility.

“Information security teams must increase their visibility and analytics capabilities to detect intruders faster and respond to them quickly and efficiently to avoid high-impact cyber incidents,” BluVector CEO, Kris Lovejoy, added.

“Our partnership with Endace brings together the best in the ability to flag, record and replay attacks so IT and security teams have sufficient quality information about the incident, the data and systems affected, and the company’s relative exposure to respond accurately. And they have all this capability on a single platform.”

Available immediately, customers can deploy BluVector Cortex directly onto EndaceProbes, a hosting platform for analytics applications.

As explained by Lovejoy, this is designed to "ease installation and maintenance" for organisations by allowing the deployment of a common hardware platform that combines full packet capture with the ability to host BluVector’s advanced threat detection solution alongside other network security and performance analytics solutions.
