Paris08 October 2013

  • Offer comprising of a combination of sensors and software to deliver services to our customers.
  • Real-time identification and characterization of cyber threats through a continuously updated knowledge base.
  • Service provides immediate reaction capabilities in case of attacks.

Cassidian CyberSecurity announced the launch of Keelback, its dedicated solution for detecting and fighting advanced persistent cyber threats on IT-networks of a targeted company.

Advanced persistent cyber attacks are tailor-made to steal sensitive information or intellectual property from their targets. These attacks represent a real danger to all organisations and hence must be fought at various levels of the targeted company's network. This is what Cassidian CyberSecurity brings with Keelback.

Keelback aims to detect cyber threats and defend a company’s information systems using three distinct and complementary modules deployed on different network levels: on workstations of the company's IT stock (KeelbackHost), on its network environment (KeelbackNet) and to refine “off-line” detection of malicious events (KeelbackLog). All modules can be used on site or remotely.

All collected information is secured and capitalised in Cassidian CyberSecurity's knowledge base that gathers all details on attackers' signatures and modi operandi. Thanks to this database, which is continuously enriched with latest information, it is possible to know in real time how malicious an intrusion is and to provide countermeasure data in order to stop its development.

Keelback is a unified solution developed for all companies and sensitive organisations that wish to dispose of the most accurate capability to identify threats, including the most recent ones.
