LightCyber Flows New Magna Breach Detection Features

LightCyber, which was founded in 2011 and is a privately held security vendor with offices in Israel and the United States, positions itself as an active-breach-detection technology provider. The basic idea behind breach-detection technology is to enable an organization to have visibility into potential security incidents, where an attacker is already in the network.

"We are deployed in enterprise networks behind the existing security line, and we monitor what's happening inside the network," Gonen Fink, CEO of LightCyber, told eWEEK. "We can detect active breaches that have bypassed the existing security controls."

LightCyber aims to enable enterprises to detect breaches before any damage is done, Fink said. The LightCyber Magna platform monitors the network and collects information from endpoints as well as cloud-based intelligence. The data flows into a detection engine that profiles user and system behavior to understand what is normal behavior.
