New Titan IC Systems and Xanadata partnership means huge acceleration to analytics of data in network security solutions
Titan’s Hyperion PCIe card integrated into Xanadata’s Typhon accelerated threat detection solution
RSA SHOW, SAN FRANCISCO Calif., Mar. 1st, 2016 — Titan IC Systems, a pioneer in cyber security and a spin-out out of Queens’ University Belfast’s Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), today announced is partnering with Xanadata, who design, develop and deploy custom systems that rapidly unlock information in unstructured data.
The Titan IC Hyperion platform is a PCI Express product designed for high performance, low latency RegEx processing for content inspection. The 40Gbps version has been integrated in Typhon, Xanadata’s Accelerated Threat Detection solution (ATD).
Noel McKenna, CEO, Titan, said, “This is a really exciting partnership. The solution means people can rapidly compare network history against today’s best threat intelligence.” He continued, “We’ve successfully addressed the issue of how to analyze very large data logs in an economic and portable solution.”
“We’re delighted to be working with Titan. Together our technologies can analyze months of network data in a few minutes giving users vital information regarding threat actor activity.”, Richard Benson, Xanadata CEO, said. “The joint solution gives an understanding of the level of network compromise, but crucially, it achieves this in a portable form factor meaning customers do not need to send sensitive information to the cloud.”
Titan and Xanadata will be demonstrating the solution at RSA (San Francisco, March 1-3) and Security & Policing (Farnborough, UK March 8-10).
