SECEON: Protecting Critical Infrastructuresby Detecting and Eliminating Cyber Threats

It’s quite evident, that despite huge amounts being spent on cybersecurity solutions, data breaches are still happening at an increasing rate and greater severity. Today’s organizations are too slow to identify and stop cyber threats from inflicting damage once the organization is breached. They need a cost-effective solution that detects and stops threats before any loss of data.

Traditional technologies are built on one fundamental flaw – smart humans must use an array of complicated tools to identify a threat and then figure out how to stop it. The problem is that 95 percent of attacks exfiate or corrupt data within a few hours of the breach—hardly enough time for smart humans to react! Seceon developed an approach that deploys analysis of all traffic, flows and processes in & out of the network and correlates them near-simultaneously with behavioral analytics, recognizing zero-day exploits and policies to surface threats and proposed responses in real-time. Moreover, this approach can easily be deployed within a few short hours in any size organization with little to no cybersecurity expertise required of enterprise or service provider staff.

See, Stop, Secure with SECEON

Seceon is focused on enabling organizations to see cyber threats clearly and quickly, stop threats from inflicting extensive damage through surgical containment and elimination and to predict all kinds of cyber attacks, sourced either internally or externally, through behavioral threat detection modeling and machine learning.

Businesses and service providers are challenged to find automated, affordable, fast and effective enterprise-class cybersecurity solutions that don’t require extensive and resource-intensive human intervention to analyze, detect, respond to, remediate and report threats before they cause extensive damage and loss. Gaining notoriety as an affordable, comprehensive solution that detects, responds to and eliminates threats in real-time, Seceon OTM is designed for any size organization with any level of technical expertise regardless of deployment environment—on-premise, cloud or a hybrid of the two.

They provide customers with a proverbial Security Operations Center or SOC-in-a-Box™.  Automating the disjointed, time-consuming and complex tasks of threat monitoring, detection and elimination, Seceon OTM frees staff to address threats quickly preventing risk, damage or loss of valuable information.

A Neoteric and Inspirational Leader

Chandra Pandey, Founder & CEO of Seceon, is an expert in data center architecture and highly scalable network solutions, and a proven business leader with more than 20 years of experience developing and marketing innovative technology solutions. As Seceon’s CEO, he works closely with customers to define and address the problems, implications, and solutions of defending corporate assets in today’s highly-connected enterprise. Chandra holds multiple patents in application virtualization, highly scalable data center architecture, scalable multicast distribution and power optimization for high-performance computers.

Before founding Seceon, Chandra was General Manager and Vice President of Platform Solutions at BTI Systems. Chandra has also held senior leadership roles at Juniper Networks, Internet Photonics (Ciena), Lucent and 3Com (HP).

Expedition and Exploration of the Industry

 The most important step in Seceon’s journey as a fast-growing cybersecurity startup was to identify and recruit expert talent to help them bring their vision to life and their mission to bear. Building the best team possible was critical to their ability to execute against objectives effectively.

In 2015,Chandra and his co-founders were personally affected by a data breach with the loss of private identity and credit card information. After sharing their experiences, they were quick to realize that even the most advanced cybersecurity approaches were incapable of protecting the enterprise from inevitable attack before they inflicted damage. A new approach was needed to help organizations see and stop threats the moment they happen. This demand spurred development of Seceon’s powerful, parallel-processing Open Threat Management (OTM) platform and their mission to empower enterprises to detect, respond and eliminate all known and imminent cyber-threats.

Continuing Competence with OTM and Innovations

In 2016, Seceon delivered the industry’s first and only fully automated real-time threat detection and remediation system to detect, analyze and eliminate cyber-threats. Seceon is the first company to provide:

  • An affordable “SoC-in-a-Box” cyber security solution that automatically detects and stops all forms of cyber threats within minutes of the breach without human intervention.
  • A solution that deploys in any environment: private, hybrid or public cloud in under 4 hours with untrained staff and needs minimal rule updates or tuning.

This architecture can process billions of inputs and generate correlated outputs of all related threat behavior in seconds, improving threat detection while minimizing false positives, and reducing the number of threat activities to be analyzed.

They consistently win engagements because Seceon OTM provides: Comprehensive Visibility, Automated Threat Detection and Remediation in Real Time and Automated Correlation Engine to improve speed of detection and response, lowering data breach costs.

Techniques Used for Ensuring Data Security

Processing massive amounts of data with real-time compute capacity, Seceon’s OTM is built on five patent-pending primary components—a control and collection engine (CCE), analytic processing engine (APE), automated response and threat intelligence— that analyze hosts, network devices, application and user behavior to detect internal risks and cyber-threats, thus accelerating response, preventing damage and loss.

Seceon has applied for more than five patents for its unique approaches to parallel processing, behavioral analytics and machine learning, and is awaiting final results.Until now there has been no affordable, comprehensive solution that detects and eliminates threats in real-time. Seceon’s subscription-based, environment-agnostic solution provides automated detection and alerts to prioritize threats efficiently.

Envisioning Tremendous Growth

In early 2017,Seceon announced a version of Seceon OTM for MSSPs, providing a single screen for viewing multiple tenants with each tenant or customer only able to see its own assets. With OTM deployed in a multi-tenancy environment, all customers can benefit from the platform’s machine learning capabilities. Any new threats are captured, reported and fed back into the system’s threat models, ensuring the continuous sharing of threat intelligence across all customers.
