Hexis Cyber Solutions Launches Intelligent Active Defense Solution

HawkEye G detects attacks, and then applying automated countermeasures to remove them

HANOVER, Md., October 8, 2013 -- Hexis Cyber Solutions (Hexis), a subsidiary of KEYW Corporation (NASDAQ: KEYW), today unveiled HawkEye G, the industry's first truly active defense solution to detect stealthy advanced cyber threats and take automatic action to remove the threats from the network. By delivering fast detection of advanced attacks -- from botnets and malware to advanced persistent threats (APTs) – and then applying automated countermeasures to remove these cyber threats, HawkEye G protects today's networks at digital speeds.

Drawing on experience from supporting the U.S. Government as well as state of the art big data capabilities, Hexis designed HawkEye G to directly combat the tools, techniques, and procedures of the most advanced attackers. This breakthrough technology takes the guesswork out of active defense by detecting, diagnosing and removing cyber threats within the network before they can compromise intellectual property or disrupt the business. HawkEye G sets itself apart from other defense tools by combining intelligence and defense capabilities with a continuous capability delivery service that enables the HawkEye G system to evolve as quickly as the threat environment evolves.

"By leveraging KEYW's legacy, Hexis Cyber Solutions is changing the way customers address their protection efforts," said Len Moodispaw, Chairman and CEO of KEYW Corporation. "With the best possible detection techniques and unmatched automated countermeasures, we are empowering our customers to thwart their adversaries."

HawkEye G's unique collection, detection and defense capabilities empower users to detect, engage and remove threats:

Detect: Leveraging an embedded high performance event data warehouse and the most advanced analytics to date, HawkEye G detects in seconds and minutes what used to be virtually invisible.

Engage: HawkEye G gathers diagnostic intelligence to confirm malware's presence, and determine the removal strategy.

Remove: HawkEye G eradicates threats in near real time, launching a spectrum of cyber countermeasures to mitigate the threat.

"Network owners today do everything possible to defend their perimeter – and they should – but still the threat gets in," stated Chris Fedde, the President of Hexis. "HawkEye G was purpose-built to find and remove that threat before it compromises the network. In addition, the analytics that are applied to the spectrum of network behavior means that high quality security awareness is constantly available to the network operator."

In addition to HawkEye G, the HawkEye family of products encompasses HawkEye AP, the Analytics Platform, for applications including suspicious behavior detection, log management, call detail record/internet protocol data record management, and risk and compliance applications.
