Thales has unveiled Cybels Analytics, an artificial intelligence based cybersecurity platform for faster, sharper, more exhaustive detection of the most complex attacks in real time or proactively in differed time (hunting).
Cybels Analytics significantly reduce the time taken to detect advanced persistent threats from three months in average to just a few days, according to test results. It uses machine learning algorithms developed by Thales to detect abnormal situations based on huge volumes of heterogeneous data from multiple sources (network data, end point analysis, OT logging, etc.), helping to identify attack patterns and discover previously unknown threats.
Cybels Analytics can be integrated with an on-premise Security Operations Centre (SOC) or provided as a service in the cloud, enabling all the user's detection systems (SIEM, EDR, NIDS, etc.) to work together and complement one another. The platform is an important addition to Thales's cybersecurity offering, rounding out the range of managed services provided through its SOC network and supporting the Cybels Sensor trusted probe, which is accredited by France's National Agency for Information System Security (ANSSI).
Cybels Analytics is also connected to the Thales Cyber Threat Intelligence service. By cross-referencing information about existing cyberthreats with an organisation's system logs, Cybels Analytics ensures more acute, more exhaustive detection of untargeted attacks, revealing three times more indicators of compromise detection than conventional attack detection products.
With the entire threat detection ecosystem integrated on the same platform, Cybels Analytics improves the customer's detection capabilities while simplifying the process for users. In addition, to tailor the platform to the specific environment of each sector of activity, powerful data visualisation modules enable users to run their own searches easily, identify any anomalies at a glance and save precious time at the investigation analysis stage. While it often takes weeks to build a complete picture of an organisation's information system using standard investigation products, Cybels Analytics shortens this process to just a few hours.
