HUNTSMAN SECURITY ENTERS U.S. MARKET; UNVEILS FIRST DEFENSE-GRADE SOLUTION TO CONSOLIDATE LEGACY SECURITY DATA
International IT security software company launching Silicon Valley operations with $10 million in funding
SAN FRANCISCO – April 16, 2015 – Cyber security threat management specialist Huntsman Security today announced its entry into the U.S. market, backed by $10M of funding, making its Cyber Security Platform available where advanced cyber attacks predominate. The company is also announcing the global launch of Huntsman Unified Console™, the world’s first cyber security software product to offer a single view of multiple security information and event management (SIEM) solutions across the enterprise.
Huntsman’s parent — Australia-based Tier-3 — is a cyber security pioneer that developed and patented behavior anomaly detection (BAD) technology that has become the industry standard. Used by top government defense and intelligence organizations in the UK, Australia and Japan, Huntsman also provides security solutions to large corporations and critical national infrastructure providers. A number of managed security service providers also use Huntsman technology to provide easily customized, flexible and proactive security solutions for their customers.
The new Huntsman Unified Console aggregates information from existing SIEM systems into a single dashboard for simplicity and clarity. The product is the first multi-domain security information management platform with true data segregation and pan-organization threat alerting and response. This provides IT and C-level executives with a single source of continuous, up-to-date threat and compliance information, streamlining the assessment process and dramatically reducing the threat resolution timeframe.
“Cyber security solutions have come a long way in recent years and are well-suited to track and identify potential breaches from massive amounts of data; however, recent Target, SONY and Adobe breaches illustrate the challenges involved with running a 21st century business and the need to identify and act on legitimate risks immediately,” said Rob Enderle, president & principal analyst, The Enderle Group. “In most high-profile breaches, slow time to resolution — not lack of recognition — is the issue that brings companies to their knees. Software providers like Huntsman Security are addressing this issue by helping companies identify and resolve threats quickly.”
“The U.S. offers an exciting new opportunity for Huntsman Security, as our Unified Console product brings significant new flexibility to the current security solutions available in the market,” said Peter Woollacott, Huntsman’s CEO and co-founder. “It helps companies modernize legacy security solutions, manage multiple environments from a single console and extend investments in their current SIEM infrastructure. By providing a single pane of glass for all security information, the Huntsman Unified Console offers a federated view across the enterprise that bridges the gap between the C-suite and IT.”
The Huntsman Cyber Security Platform, which underpins the Huntsman Unified Console, correlates internal and externally sourced threat information at high speed, automating routine pre-analysis and processing to contextualize diverse data sets and prioritize threats that matter. Using rules and behavioral based engines — rather than relying only on ad hoc query-led data investigation or industry-based patterns – Huntsman® combines machine learning with proven statistical algorithms to instantly and accurately isolate risky anomalies. This process is based on an organization’s unique data dynamics and provides precise, actionable intelligence for incident response in seconds.
