New Solution, BluVector for IBM QRadar part of collaborative development to stay ahead of evolving threats
Arlington, Va. (March 17, 2017) – BluVector, a leader in applying supervised machine learning to detect and respond to advanced security threats at digital speed, today launched BluVector for QRadar. BluVector for QRadar leverages IBM’s security intelligence technology to enable security teams to detect and investigate advanced cyber threats more quickly and accurately before harm is done to the organization.The new application is freely available to the security community through IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies. As threats are evolving faster than ever, collaborative development amongst the security community will help organizations adapt quickly and speed innovation in the fight against cybercrime.
Built with patented machine learning, BluVector’s Intel grade, high-speed solution enables security operation center analysts and incident response teams to gain actionable insight on advanced threats in real-time, helping to reduce detection and response times from months to minutes.
The new BluVector application leverages IBM QRadar, the company’s security intelligence platform. The platform analyzes data across an organization’s IT infrastructure in real-time to identify potential security threats, to further simplify the approach to advanced cyber threat identification and prevention at the network level. Leveraging QRadar’s new open application programming interfaces, IBM customers will be able to add BluVector sensors as log sources and pivot from the QRadar event details to the BluVector event view. For users of IBM Resilient, BluVector’s output can populate events and update events within that incident response platform as well.
“The addition of BluVector for QRadar is a huge benefit for our security analysts and clients,” said Usman Khan of Boston International Technologies, Inc. “The advanced technology BluVector is using to combat threats that evade today’s security measures is key in the fight against cybercrime. The integration of BluVector’s technology with IBM QRadar, a powerful SIEM, gives our incident response team a jump start on threats in real-time.”
“Organizations and companies are not only experiencing more advanced security threats, they are also under pressure to have prevention and a response,” said Kris Lovejoy, CEO of BluVector. “As a security community, we have a responsibility to partner our best technologies to help combat and repel these threats and that is what this partnership represents.”
BluVector will be demonstrating BluVector for QRadar in Booth 946 at IBM InterConnect 2017, March 19-23 in Las Vegas.
BluVector is the leader in applying supervised machine learning so security teams can detect and respond to advanced security threats at digital speed. With over a decade of research evaluating vast collections of both benign and malicious software, BluVector is uncovering the markers and mutations of today’s modern malware.
