Savvius Vigil Designated Ready for IBM Security Intelligence by IBM PartnerWorld

Savvius Vigil integrates with IBM QRadar to increase effectiveness of security alert investigations

Las Vegas, Nevada. – August 1st, 2016 – Savvius™, Inc., leader in packet intelligence solutions for security investigations and network performance diagnostics, today announced it has received IBM PartnerWorld’s Ready for IBM Security Intelligence designation for Savvius Vigil 2.0, the latest version of the network forensics appliance that automates the collection of network traffic associated with security incidents. As a result, Savvius Vigil has been validated to integrate with the IBM® QRadar® Security Intelligence Platform to help better protect customers around the world. The integration capitalizes on Vigil’s ability to store only the most useful network packet data to enhance security investigations, even into incidents that took place weeks or months ago.

"Vigil’s integration with QRadar means our customers can respond more quickly to security alerts, reducing the likelihood of a successful data breach," said Mandana Javaheri, Chief Technology Officer at Savvius. "When breaches do occur, Vigil and QRadar users will be able to investigate and respond much more quickly and effectively to mitigate the cost and damage of a breach."

This integration allows Vigil and QRadar users to operate a closed-loop cycle for identifying, tracking, and investigating alerts that have potential to become security breaches. Security investigators using the joint solution can now examine security events more efficiently with the ability to immediately access the most useful and pertinent packet data for a particular alert.

A recent survey conducted by analyst firm EMA revealed that most enterprises investigate and resolve fewer than 5 percent of their total security alerts, showing a clear need for automation and improvement in the incident response process. Most intrusions that become breaches are not discovered for months, by which time security investigators must have the assistance of Savvius Vigil or rely solely on incomplete information from logs and metadata stores.

The new integration allows Savvius Vigil to store appropriate network traffic for each threat detected by the IBM QRadar SIEM, even packet information from the five minutes leading up to the alert. By presenting only forensically relevant data to investigators, Vigil enhances the speed and accuracy of their investigations. The forensically relevant data is placed in long-term storage in the Vigil appliance, providing insurance against inadequate information during a major breach when time to resolution is particularly critical.

Savvius is attending Black Hat 2016 in Las Vegas (booth #1361). The company will showcase its Vigil network forensics appliance and Insight mini network management appliance, and provide visitors with a sneak peek of the upcoming Omnipeek Security software.
