AdaptiveMobile Launches Tethra™, the Industry’s First Big-Security Platform Designed to Protect Service Providers
Hadoop-based Big Data Analytics Platform provides active real-time threat detection and response, to meet the volume and complexities of service provider security
Dublin and Dallas, October 30, 2013 – AdaptiveMobile, the world leader in mobile security, today announced the launch of Tethra™, a Hadoop-based “Big-Security” threat analytics platform designed to defend service provider networks. Tethra™ provides powerful real-time continuous monitoring of threats, evaluating the billions of events occurring every day within the typical mobile and fixed line service provider. Unlike traditional approaches to network security, which rely on daily feeds to databases of signatures and categorisation decisions, Tethra™ is uniquely able to respond immediately to new threats as they emerge within the network.
Tethra™ draws on the scalability of the Hadoop framework to power AdaptiveMobile’s proprietary network-security predictive threat engine; identifying new threats based on the content, sequences and interactions between devices. The framework is the first of its kind designed to meet the volume and complex analysis requirements of service providers, and is already active in the networks of some of the largest operators worldwide.
The launch of Tethra™ comes as Gartner identifies the three top security concerns as being mobile security, big data and advanced threats – all three of these coming together in the service provider’s network.
“Securing an operator’s network is the ultimate Big Data problem,” said Gareth Maclachlan, Chief Operating Officer, AdaptiveMobile. “With billions of events occurring per day and with the vast majority of these being legitimate revenue-generating activity, finding new threats that may be coordinated across thousands of individual devices, without impacting subscriber privacy, is the number one security challenge. Tethra™ has been designed specifically to address the challenges of Big Security; maintaining the integrity of a service provider’s network and the privacy of their subscribers.”
AdaptiveMobile is the world leader in mobile security, enabling trusted networks for the world’s largest operator groups and protecting one in six subscribers globally, including over half of all smartphone subscribers in the United States. AdaptiveMobile provides Operators with the most comprehensive network-based security solutions enabling them to protect their consumer and enterprise customers against the growing threat of mobile abuse. www.adaptivemobile.com / @AdaptiveMobile /#GSIMVIII
