StreamWorks is a unique technology that discovers emerging patterns of sophisticated cyber-attacks by analyzing multi-source streaming data in near-real time. It alerts analysts to top-pattern incidents, and provides an easy-to-understand description of the potential threat and a rationale for why the threat was chosen. It shifts cyber defense postures from reactive (the style of current postures) to proactive (the style of postures needed). Most security breaches are eventually detected by existing cybersecurity tools deployed within enterprise networks. However, analysts in most operations centers are often overwhelmed by the volume of alerts typical systems constantly generate, the need to manually triage such alerts and the need to understand why a system generated such alerts. StreamWorks addresses these challenges by providing a cyber-defender with new capabilities and tools.
