LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GuruCul Solutions has partnered with NetApp® to improve data protection for intellectual property and classified or highly-regulated information. In response to recent cyber security threats and regulatory pressures, GuruCul's Risk Analytics platform (GRA) now is integrated with NetApp's® Unified Storage Systems as part of its core Risk Analytics platform. "We have found this integration to be essential for our customer's in the Hi-Tech space where NetApp Filers are strategic tools for product development and storing intellectual property", said Saryu Nayyar, CEO of GuruCul Solutions.
This innovative new platform uses GuruCul's Risk Analytics engine (GRA) to tap into NetApp's® proprietary access and activity usage information. GRA correlates this data with Identity and HR information to form powerful behavior profiles which can be quickly analyzed for anomalous behavior. "By combining NetApp and GuruCul strengths we bring a unique approach to defending against the advanced cyber threats organizations face today", said Nayyar.
For the first time, NetApp® customers can take a 360 degree "identity-centric" view of user access and activity. This gives customers the much needed capability to quickly take action on outlier, suspicious or unwarranted access and activity. This allows deep insight into both infrastructure and application layers where key IP, regulated or sensitive data are stored down to the object level. Prior to this integration, NetApp® customers did not have this capability.
NetApp creates innovative storage and data management solutions that deliver outstanding cost efficiency and accelerate business breakthroughs. Discover NetApp's passion for helping companies around the world go further, faster at www.netapp.com.
