Israeli startup LightCyber, a provider of breach detection and response solutions, announced new features to its award-winning solution, LightCyber Magna 2.8. Expanding enterprise scalability, the company boasts that LightCyber Magna now further supports large and distributed enterprises with the new Magna Probe product line. Magna Probe enables organizations to perform inspection of network traffic at remote locations, such as branch offices, to broaden attack detection across a large distributed network.
LightCyber Magna 2.8 introduces the following new products and features:
Magna Probe: The Magna Probe product line is an additional component of the Magna Platform that extends network visibility to enterprise branch offices or additional locations, performs the data collection and inspection functions and forwards necessary data back to a Detector for profiling and analysis.
Additional Cloud-based Threat Intelligence: To augment the program’s profiling-based detection, LightCyber Magna extends the Magna Cloud with sandboxing capabilities to inspect suspicious executables collected at the endpoint using the agentless Magna Pathfinder. It also introduces domain threat intelligence to identify attackers’ command & control communications. These capabilities augment the primary network-based breach detection techniques, and provide security operations with additional forensics information.
Expanded Integration with Firewall Solutions: LightCyber Magna 2.8 also adds Palo Alto Networks technology to its list of certified integrations. The integration, specifically with the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall – a key component of the Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform – enables security operators to automatically isolate and contain suspicious or known-breached endpoints, thus cutting off exfiltration and preventing damage.
The only cyber security breach detection solution to combine network-based deep packet inspection with endpoint state, LightCyber Magna profiles user and device behavior to identify anomalous attack behavior that is indicative of a security breach. Highly accurate behavior-based breach detection provides enterprise security operators with actionable and prioritized alerts that help reduce attack dwell time and damage potential.
“The majority of large organizations do not have an adequate ability to detect and respond to sophisticated attackers who have already or will eventually breach their networks, ” said Gonen Fink, CEO of LightCyber. “LightCyber Magna version 2.8 introduces a variety of expanded features and functionality that even further enable our enterprise customers to cost effectively deploy an active breach detection solution across a distributed enterprise environment and seamlessly fit into their existing IT vendor infrastructure.”
