TOKYO, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NTT Com Group, incorporating NTT Communications (NTT Com), Integralis AG and Secode AB and in cooperation with NTT Secure Platform Laboratories, announced on February 7 that it is launching a security-information event-management (SIEM) technology to provide enhanced detection and analysis of security risks, including targeted attacks for organizations worldwide.
The spread of smartphones and tablets, plus the advances in cloud technologies have enabled seamless IT environments to be created worldwide. At the same time, however, increased security risks, such as unauthorized access, viruses and information leaks, have become acute problems requiring urgent solutions for diverse Information and Communications Technology environments.
The new SIEM technology detects risks through advanced automatic correlation analysis and evaluates risk levels automatically. It incorporates NTT Secure Platform Laboratories' advanced technologies designed to detect attacks through long-term log monitoring, and a blacklist generation engine that efficiently finds malicious sites; as well as a comprehensive security information database.Akira Arima, CEO at NTT Communications, said: "Our investment in SIEM across worldwide NTT Com data centers is the first step in our global Managed Security Services vision. By driving new services in the data center, NTT Com, with our security arms Integralis and Secode will ultimately be able to filter these into the enterprise customer environment; supporting them with common process and intelligence which allows a "secure path to the cloud". "The SIEM technology will serve as a universal security service platform enabling the NTT Com Group to offer more thorough services for region-specific risks. We will also advise customers on risk prediction and available countermeasures based on risk information shared among Group members," he continued. Simon Church, CEO, Integralis AG, commented: "With the ongoing focus on security from NTT Com, we are continuing to make significant investment in our services, technology and skilled teams globally that provide customers with the risk management and IT security services they need in order to develop and transform their businesses." Church continued, "The introduction of the SIEM technology as part of a Managed Security Service, changes the way we deliver security analysis and risk information to our customers. Remote device management is essential in modern organizations. However, taking the information from these devices, and providing contextual analysis to the business so that they can make informed decisions around their risk and security profile is crucial, especially as the threat landscape is continually evolving."
