HANOVER, Md., Feb 27, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — KEYW and Sensage, two leaders in security intelligence, today announced a strategic technology alliance to deliver “mission-grade” cyber intelligence services to commercial enterprises and government agencies intent on understanding and minimizing cyber risks. At the core of this service are cyber analytics derived from the fusion of operational, security, and behavioral information about the cyber domain.
The KEYW-Sensage alliance will combine the extensive cyber analytics and security operations expertise of KEYW with the advanced event data warehousing and security intelligence solutions offered by Sensage. KEYW’s new Cyber Intelligence Service will offer a platform of tools, capabilities, and offerings developed for the national defense and intelligence community to deliver cyber awareness and operational surety. This service is designed for organizations anxious to leverage advanced cyber analytics to improve the effectiveness and trustworthiness of their cyber domain operations. It incorporates proven elements of cyber analytics assessment, planning, product implementation and operational support.
The Sensage Event Data Warehouse and Security Analytics Library serve as the enabling technologies for the KEYW Cyber Intelligence Service. Sensage has over ten years of proven success collecting, storing and analyzing vast quantities of events produced by complex, distributed IT landscapes in the largest government agencies and enterprises. Purpose-built for the task, Sensage’s patented columnar database makes it possible for security practitioners to access any event in any context, from a real-time correlation alert to a simple compliance report to a statistical filtering and trend analysis algorithm. Because the database is open to any third-party tool via ODBC/JDBC, security auditors, investigators and analysts are able to customize their security analytics within the context of their roles and their interdependent workflows, which in turn accelerates visibility, improves decision making and leads to a better understanding of how to improve security configurations, policies and practices.
