AlmavivA: “intelligent” prevention at the core of cybersecurity

14/09/2017

"Intelligence profiled on the customer, through ontology-based big data analysis, allows for monitoring and preventing cyberattacks. Guaranteeing security in the cloud and in IoT is today’s challenge. In a situation where threats continuously evolve and expand, cybersecurity constitutes the key success factor and a necessary condition for companies and public administration bodies.

In a situation where threats continuously evolve and expand, cybersecurity constitutes the key success factor and a necessary condition for companies and public administration bodies.

The figures concerning cybersecurity depict a highly alarming picture. The 2017 Clusit Report evidences an exponential growth in the quantity and quality of cyberattacks: between 2015 and 2016, “information warfare” grew by 117%; attacks based on phishing / social engineering methods actually quadrupled (+1,166%); the healthcare sector was the most hit (+102%), followed by large-scale retail trade (+70%), finance/banking – which “only” ranked third (+64%) – and critical infrastructures (+15%). Another source revealed that the amount of industrial computers attacked grew from 17% to 24%.

It is this widespread vulnerability that has led AlmavivA to differentiate its offer and privilege prevention resources. Perfecting its ability to protect customers against internal or external cyberattacks is in fact the primary mission of the AlmavivA Cybersecurity Operation Center and Emergency Team. The dedicated facility proposes security intelligence that exploits the capabilities of big data analysis using ontologies specialised in cybersecurity and its sub-domains: cybercrime, cyber intelligence, hacktivism, cyberterrorism.

The strength of the platform, which exploits Iride KM, an Almawave product for deep analysis of unstructured data, lies in its preventive monitoring capabilities, combined with the possibility of customising ontologies and content analyses, and profiling a refined, rapid and effective search on the user on the Web and Dark Web. Each potential threat is assessed in the proper context with an instant reactive capacity, to prevent direct or indirect damages affecting the economic, reputational, managerial and political-social spheres. This filter is extremely useful for companies wishing to perfect their advanced security systems already adopted, but that are often deficient with regard to decisive preventive monitoring aspects."
