Prevention tells us what was stopped, Fluency tells you what was not.

Fluency provides network security vision.  Somewhere down the road we started separating security from networking, when they are the same thing.  Good networking is based on reliability and integrity, just like good security.  A secure network is a good network.  

Securing a network requires both the ability to see security events and the flows of a network.  Fluency is the only product built to provide exactly this.  Fluency captures both network flows, system events and security events and correlates them.  Providing real time analytics and event summary of your network’s security.

Fluency network analytics detect performance hindering network attacks, like fragmentation attacks, in realtime.  Fluency has the insight for networks to respond, maintaining availability, integrity and quality.  Its correlation provides the ability to relate security events to systems, and systems to users. Answering the questions that empower action.

When news of the Dyre-Upatre botnet and virus broke out in 2015, Fluency customers searched  their network’s history to determine if the site names or network addresses were ever accessed in their network and by what systems.  When CEO’s asked their staff, the staff had the answers immediately.  Fluency continued to track the threat, watching for attempts of systems trying to communicate to this threat.

Time is your greatest asset

A big data infrastructure allows interactive search over an extremely large data set.  While traditional SIEM technology is pressed to show fused attributes of a session, Fluency provides it in milliseconds.  Analysts require multiple such searches as the analyst scopes and pivots.   Fluency cuts the time from hours to seconds. Improving response time while lowering analysis costs. And this is not because Fluency is managing a smaller data set, just the opposite.  Single node servers can handle a billion events a day and can be clustered to handle more.

Integration empowers perspective

No man is an island, and no security product is either.  Fluency implements what we call a service bus. It is best described as making remote services object-oriented.  It's a bi-directional protocol exchange that enables clients to expose services to other authenticated nodes.  A service bus implements messaging, REST and stream as its arguments, handling the process of the service flow by the service itself.  The result is two fold: Faster integration to data sources, and consistent service quality, as the service object handles the process flow and error response instead of the client.

Big Data Analytics

Data analytics is critical for reducing cost of security operations.  So what really does it do? It cuts down on the noise and false alerts; Correlates the high-priority alerts across activity providing the big picture; and creates the backbone to agile response allowing you to stay ahead of malicious actors and activities.
The results show that a probability of a material data breach involving a minimum of 10,000 records is more than 22 percent.
