Threat detection contract with Federal Agency

Netwitness : 09 September, 2008  (Application Story)
NextGen 8.5 ordered by Federal agency for network threat detection and mitigation
NetWitness has been awarded an enterprise-level contract with a key US Federal agency during Q3 2008. This sale of NetWitness' flagship NextGen v8.5 software product includes NetWitness infrastructure appliances deployed to provide substantial full packet capture and session analysis capabilities across the entire organization's Internet gateways.

Multiple NetWitness NextGen applications make use of this infrastructure for a variety of purposes. NetWitness Investigator is being used by the agency to shorten the time from threat identification to resolution and to augment the visibility of current security solutions. NetWitness Informer is enabling the agency to obtain real-time visibility into state-sponsored advanced threats and is helping to identify complex data leakage and designer malware challenges. The deployment is an integral part of the agency's Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) initiative providing automated full packet inspection and advanced application content analysis including review of secure sockets layer (SSL) encrypted content.

"We are thrilled that such a critical component of our federal government and national security infrastructure has chosen NetWitness NextGen to improve their network security," said Amit Yoran, CEO of NetWitness Corporation. "According to this agency, a majority of the confirmed advanced threat incidents they detect on a weekly basis are now directly attributable to NetWitness NextGen."
