  SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA, Feb 25
(Marketwire) -- 
RSA CONFERENCE 2013 -- Narus, Inc., the leader in big data analytics for
cyber security solutions, today unveiled the Narus nSystem. Built on the
principles of Cyber 3.0, the Narus nSystem uses automated machine
learning to process 100 percent of network packets and discover, analyze,
and understand every interaction on a network. As a result, analysts have
the visibility, context and control required to immediately home in on --
and take action against -- cyber threats that can devastate their
organization.

    Network and security officials are faced with securing critical assets, a
daunting task in today's hyper-connected environment, where massive
amounts of information move easily and quickly across people, locations,
time, devices and networks. Current-generation cyber security approaches
fall short in this environment, due to their reliance on human
intervention to sift through and analyze data, find cyber security
incidents and identify breaches in security policy. At present, humans
can identify the source and behavior of approximately 20 percent of the
data on a network, which leaves them scrambling to ensure the remaining
80 percent of the network is protected. 

    Visibility, control and context are essential in this new environment.
They can come only with a drastically increased magnitude of analysis
that is achieved through machine learning. 

    The Narus nSystem: Incisive Intelligence From Cyber 3.0 and Big Data
Analytics
 Narus is the only company to integrate the principles of Cyber
3.0 with big data analytics, and then build upon them with patented,
machine learning that processes 100 percent of network packets to
discover, analyze and understand every cyber interaction, and deliver the
visibility, control and context required. 

    The result is the Narus nSystem, which can scan millions of pieces of
data and metadata; aggregate data about users, communities, devices and
applications; and then delve into the traffic as well as the content
behind network behavior. With the Narus nSystem, every interaction is
contextualized to help users draw conclusions about patterns and
relationships. And semantic analysis provides clear insight into details
about location, demographics, topics, interests, roles, personal
information, relationships and more. 

    Users can then discover unknown relationships and contextualize all
interactions to gain incisive intelligence based on learned
relationships, and predict threats and protect critical assets. 

    "Securing and managing our current networked world requires the
visibility, control and context that can only come with the application
of machine learning to cyber security and surveillance," said John
Trobough, president, Narus. "The Narus nSystem is the industry's only
solution that can deliver this, and subsequently protect our critical
assets and our future."

    The Narus nSystem will be demonstrated by Narus executives at Booth No.
1841 at the RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco. Please visit the RSA
