Qosmos and Deep-Secure Enhance Application-Level Cyber Security
By Carolyn J Dawson
Qosmos (News - Alert) recently announced that it has collaborated with Deep-Secure, provider of application-level Guard. Administrators at Security Operations Centre or SOC will be offered exhaustive traffic analysis and application-level content protection as a result of the collaboration. Qosmos specializes in providing Network Intelligence technology.
Composite software tracking, administration and visualization tools can therefore be used by SOC administrators with improved application-level security. SOC network administrators can analyze network tracking information from unrelated sources, thereby ensuring a worldwide view of Internet activity.
In a statement, Dr Tim Watson, Director, Cyber Security Centre, De Montfort University said, “DMU are delighted to be able to foster joint integration activity between innovative technology providers Deep-Secure & Qosmos, integrated under a common visualization platform (CHIMP) provided by Intelligent Cyber Strategies Ltd. By taking a pragmatic approach to addressing pressing cyber security issues we hope that we can start to offer real benefits to communities needing to better protect their sensitive networks and data from theft, attack or compromise.”
According to Duncan Curry, Regional Director, Northern Europe at Qosmos, SOC administrators are offered a safe tool for comprehensive analysis, rapid searches, lesser false positives, and additional precise alerts by incorporating Qosmos network visibility and Deep-Secure’s application-level content protection. An exceptional platform for describing and showcasing security and analysis technologies is offered by the Cyber Security Centre at DMU.
Robin King, Sales and Marketing Director, Deep-Secure said, “I am delighted that Deep-Secure and Qosmos are working together to deliver a solution that is delivering value to SOC Administrators and providing assurance at the application level. It is rewarding that the advantage of deep traffic analysis combined with the right level of security can mean companies can continue to conduct their business and not have to encounter the destructive effects of subversive attacks. Deep-Secure are proud to support this joint initiative in conjunction with Tim’s Cyber Security Centre at De Montfort University to offer some pragmatic solutions to real world problems.”
Qosmos Deep Packet Inspection-based technology provides application-level network intelligence in a NetFlow/Syslog format to the SOC. The tracking and administration system understands and displays the data received from SOC, thereby offering a considerable enhancement in security visibility.
