High performance data retention provides real time actionable intelligence for cyber security and investigative organizations
October 12, 2010, Pleasanton, Calif. — Bivio Networks, a leading provider of network systems for securing, monitoring and controlling critical network infrastructure, today announced the launch of its Data Retention System, a high-performance data collection and retention system to strengthen cyber security operations for network operators and government agencies. The Bivio Data Retention System provides unmatched coverage and tracking of user applications, networks and devices, and can be quickly deployed in existing wireline and mobile network infrastructures.
“Existing cyber investigative data collection and retention tools focus primarily on data recording rather than efficiently capturing and generating actionable information,” said Dr. Elan Amir, president and CEO of Bivio Networks. “The Bivio Data Retention System advances the state of the art by delivering data-rich, contextualized information, enabling cyber analysts to detect and respond to complex security threats.”
Existing data retention solutions have traditionally focused on collecting data from a specific source, for example call data records (CDRs), IP data records (IPDRs) or server activity logs. This “vertical” collection inherently limits network analysts’ ability to develop a complete view of activity and potential threats.
The Bivio Data Retention System uses proprietary record correlation technology combined with deep packet inspection (DPI) network probing to enable contextualized multi-source data collection and retention. The system links together disparate pieces of data to form a single record that represents the full context of the collected information. This information enables rich data mining for powerful cyber investigative operations.
Key features include:
- Scalable real-time data source record correlation
- 10Gb/s DPI-based network probing enabling application and user context extraction
- Mobile-specific protocol support (WiMax, 3G, 4G/LTE) for wireless network integration
- High-performance record database
- External interfaces for custom data mining and event triggering
The Bivio Data Retention System is primarily targeted to governmental authorities such as law enforcement (LEA) and public safety agencies. The system represents a key piece of a comprehensive cyber investigative strategy, enabling investigators to rapidly detect, analyze and react to security threats originating from or traversing the cyber realm.
The Bivio Data Retention System is available now for evaluation and deployment in production networks. For more information, please visit: www.bivio.net/products/drs/.
