NTT Com Security announces advanced services and threat analysis capabilities for WideAngle Managed Security Services

MSS platform provides improved detection rates for unknown threats of up to 500%

Ismaning, Germany, 18 June, 2014 – Global information security and risk management company, NTT Com Security, has announced advanced SIEM (security information and event management) capabilities and improved threat detection and analysis functionality for its Managed Security Services (MSS) platform delivered under the WideAngle brand.

The enhancements, which include Time Based Analysis Intelligence and a Correlated Log Analysis (CLA) service, will provide significantly improved detection rates of up to 500% of unknown security threats for NTT Com Security customers worldwide. They will also enable better correlation of threat intelligence from different sources and between security and non-security devices, including authentication servers, web proxy servers, databases and networks devices, as well as conventional security devices like firewalls, IPS and anti virus.

Simon Church, CEO, NTT Com Security, comments: “Our MSS platform is second to none, offering proven security expertise and a global presence, but we are always looking to improve and strengthen our solutions to keep up with a constantly evolving threat environment. Our mission is to ensure customers can detect and protect against hidden threats 24/7 and as a result can implement robust security policies for their business.”

Akira Arima, CEO at NTT Communications, adds: “NTT Communications is continually investing in its research and development to ensure we provide the very best information security services. We’re delighted to announce these major enhancements in threat intelligence and analysis to our WideAngle MSS platform.”

Additional functionality includes Enhanced Packet Capture (PCAP) support for IDS/IPS vendors, delivering improved analysis and fewer false positives to customers. In addition, newly developed Intelpacks – sets of algorithms implemented within the MSS analysis engine – provide tailored detection and ensure organisations stay up to date with the very latest attack methods and tools.
