Recent News - ESET Technology Alliance Welcomes Network Security Firm GREYCORTEX


2017-08-30

Today, ESET announced that GREYCORTEX, a network security provider joins the ESET Technology Alliance, expanding its scope with the advanced network security, visibility, and performance monitoring solution: MENDEL. The solution creates an advanced layer of protection for organizations, governments, and the critical infrastructure sector, while also providing rapid detection and response to security breaches and other incident types.

Nowadays, businesses face much more sophisticated threats than in years prior. Just a brief look back at 2017’s massive malware campaigns shows just how quickly we can be deprived of control over the most valuable resource of all - data. The critical importance of cybersecurity was recently highlighted, first by the outbreak of the WannaCry ransomware; which left many in the healthcare sector paralyzed, then subsequently Petya ransomware; a targeted supply-chain attack that appeared to spread out of control.

Built on a decade of extensive industry and academic experience, GREYCORTEX uses advanced machine learning and data analysis to help protect sensitive data, networks, trade secrets, and reputations, which might be left unknowingly unprotected.

“In order to protect their IT networks, organizations need to be able to react quickly and effectively,” said Petr Chaloupka, CEO, GREYCORTEX. “MENDEL is built around specialized algorithms and extensive academic research providing deep insight into network traffic in order to make the detection of advanced threats such as WannaCry or other behavioral anomalies more sensitive and reliable, while simultaneously decreasing the costs of operation.”

As a solution, GREYCORTEX MENDEL is able to detect known and unknown malware, ransomware, RATs, Trojans, Zero-day attacks, etc., as well as targeted threats to infrastructure – all of which are able to dwell for long periods within a network, undetected by other network security solutions. Moreover, MENDEL is able to identify insider threats, network performance issues, and provide full visibility of every device on the network, up to, and including the application layer. For IT security teams, this means not only greatly improved threat detection, but full network visibility for incident investigation.

“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.”

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.
