Verint awarded multimillion dollar Latin American government cybersecurity project
Verint Systems Inc. of Melville, NY announced on May 18 that it won a multimillion-dollar project for a new Government Security Operations Center (GSOC) in the Latin America region to help protect critical government organizations from advanced cyber threats.
Verint’s technology will be deployed to help the cyber analyst team identify and focus on the most significant, urgent risks, and quickly analyze, confirm and respond to threats and attacks.
“Today, governments are concerned about advanced security threats and are looking for data mining software combined with domain expertise to help address these threats,” says Noam Rosenfeld, Verint SVP Cyber Security Solutions. “Our solution with ‘virtual analyst’ technology is designed to help automate and simplify the traditionally labor intensive cyber alert investigation process, enabling SOCs to more efficiently investigate and mitigate critical incidents before they rise to the level of a major threat.”
Verint’s Cyber Security solution integrates multiple advanced detection engines and provides unified workflows for investigation, behavioral analytics and forensics that analyze cyber-attack paths, and help protect against future attempts. Its orchestration and automation capabilities reduce the need for labor-intensive manual processes and help shorten the period of time between malware detection and remediation within SOC operations.
This project was awarded earlier this year through a prime contractor, Israel Aerospace Industries’ subsidiary ELTA Systems Ltd, which leads the IC3 Consortium. It is expected to be deployed over the next two years.
