RSA, the security division of EMC (NYSE:EMC), today announced the addition of new capabilities to RSA Security Analytics,designed to help organizations extend infrastructure protection into the cloud.

RSA Security Analytics is engineered to give organizations the ability to detect and respond to modern attacks before they can damage the business. This release is also built to offer visibility into attacks that target critical customer-facing web and mobile applications, and introduces data privacy capabilities.

While logs are valuable, they are limited by what they can detect, and are not enough to identify advanced attacks. In fact, most successful attacks go undiscovered by logs alone.Even when log-based Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) systems detect signs of an attack, they are unable to piece them together to provide security analysts with the understanding to quickly respond to the attack.

Security teams need to take a multifaceted and integrated approach to security in order to fully comprehend an attack, speed up response time when an incident occurs, and facilitate a return to business as usual. RSA Security Analytics contextually analyzes the data to help allow organizations to quickly and fully understand what was targeted, the attacker’s strategy and actions within the organization, and the magnitude of the attack such that they can respond before a breach of confidential information can occur.This release is also engineered to allow customers leveraging RSA Web Threat Detection to correlate enterprise attacks with web and mobile application exploitation, designed to help organizations defend against both security attacks and fraudulent user activity that targets their critical customer-facing web and mobile applications.

Furthermore, RSA Security Analytics is more accessible through the addition of flexible pricing and packaging options. Organizations can now choose from deployment models that include through put-based pricing,subscription options and use case-based packages. With this release, customer scan also leverage their own storage with RSA Security Analytics.

Through put-based pricing lets customers tailor their purchase to fit their exact needs and can potentially lower the total cost of ownership to deploy.Customers and partners also have the option to shift to an operational expense model by leveraging subscription-based pricing.
Finally, RSA Security Analytics is now engineered to include new data privacy capabilities, designed to share valuable insights with security analysts without exposing them to their organization’s or employees’ most sensitive data, like PII.The ability to redact specific information will allow users to focus on safeguarding their organization without violating data privacy guidelines. These new capabilities for RSA Security Analytics are all available starting this quarter.
