HawkEye G: The Active Defense Grid

May 16, 2014

Download HawkEye G is a dynamic active defense system designed to leverage existing security assets while providing advanced cyber security analytics and automated countermeasure techniques. The combination of the traditional signature-based and new behavior-based heuristics leads to heightened awareness of standard network activity and deviations that could indicate a potentially disastrous situation. Understanding the full threat and defense landscape is crucial for cyber security mitigation and the HawkEye G team has invested the time and resources into developing that holistic solution.

HawkEye G is a single deployable unit that easily integrates with an enterprise's current IT investment. Reduced human workload due to accelerated mitigation of network security events and automated implementation of policy means that human capital can be redistributed to focus on the most complex issues. Furthermore, HawkEye G's automated capability minimizes error, increasing the consistency and accuracy of detecting anomalies. Organizations will now be able to align staff capacity to evaluating surfaced network compromises rather than to threat discovery and investigation.

This white paper discusses how HawkEye G's unique proactive defense posture makes malicious actors' tactics costly and more risky than traditional cyber solutions, while decreasing the total number of successful breaches.
