Mar 13, 2017 | by Amy Blackshaw |

We are excited to announce the RSA NetWitness® Platform has been named by Forrester® Research as a leader in The Forrester Wave: Security Analytics Platforms, Q1 2017. RSA NetWitness Platform earned perfect marks in the Forrester Wave report for scalability, detection technologies, user behavior analytics, endpoints, integrated network analysis and visibility, and threat intelligence.

According to Forrester, "Security analytics platforms give S&R pros the ability to detect, investigate, and respond to cybersecurity threats. Speeding detection and hastening the investigation process enables faster response, lessening the impact of cyberattacks." In a world where the sophistication of threat actors and the ever-expanding attack surface of the modern IT infrastructure have made it impossible to defend against every threat, RSA is focused on providing business-driven security solutions to do just that.

Security teams need capabilities to rapidly discover compromises and understand their full scope, so they can respond before these threats significantly impact the business. This is exactly the focus of the RSA NetWitness Platform - to empower security teams to detect and understand the full scope of a compromise, by analyzing data and behavior across an organization: logs, packets, and endpoints, as well as the NetFlow of activity generated by people and processes. The Suite transforms that data into more useful information through the real-time enrichment with business context and threat intelligence.

The RSA NetWitness Platform features powerful capabilities built on machine learning, behavioral analysis, and advanced threat detection. RSA NetWitness Platformprovides rich, role-based orchestration and workflow for threat detection and response activities as well as flexible deployment models (cloud, virtualized, or appliance) to support modern IT infrastructure.

This comprehensive and flexible design center enables RSA NetWitness Platform to dramatically optimize threat detection and response processes. In an environment where security expertise is scarce and expensive, the RSA NetWitness Platform makes security analysts up to three times more productive in protecting their organizations against advanced cyber threats.
