Herndon, VA " March 23, 2009 " NetWitness Corporation, the leading provider of next generation network monitoring and threat analysis solutions, today announced the launch of NetWitness Live, a 24x7 data feed that empowers customers to immediately leverage real-time threat-intelligence and reputational content using their NetWitness infrastructure. This new service provides radar-like visibility into threats being discovered elsewhere on the Internet, and allows customers to easily identify, prioritize and remediate their responses.

For the first time, NetWitness Live provides public and private organizations the real-time ability to navigate the full content of network threat intelligence from multiple, globally-distributed threat intelligence sources. Unlike other services which focus on single source intelligence, NetWitness Live enables users to tailor their data feeds according to their environment and threat profile.

"By delivering a single solution that aggregates data from multiple globally distributed and disparate sources, NetWitness is able to provide its customers the reliable intelligence necessary to proactively identify and address threats to their enterprise," said Eddie Schwartz, Chief Security Officer for NetWitness. "With years of experience in the government, intelligence community, financial markets and other high threat profile environments, we understand the risks our customers face when trying to address dynamic threats without a broad, proactive intelligence base or using manual techniques. NetWitness Live enables personalized real-time threat intelligence, strengthening our customers' ability to stay ahead of attacks. "

NetWitness Live provides features designed to simplify threat intelligence, including:

Proactively optimizing and automating insight into advanced threats Reducing time to identify, assess and respond to incidents, improve staff efficiency and time to incident closure Real-time, reliable and credible multi-source threat intelligence Definitively classifying computers associated with illegal third party exploits, open proxies, worms/viruses, spam engines, compromised internal systems, Botnets and other current and zero-day exploits Identifying network traffic associated with computers on the Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN) Synchronizing with content derived from broad and best of breed data sources

NetWitness has partnered with multiple data providers from the open-source, research and the commercial communities to provide the most comprehensive threat intelligence available. These sources include: SANs Internet Storm Center, SRI Malware Threat Center, ShadowServer, U.S. Department of Treasury, MyNetWatchman and others. Additional threat feeds will be incorporated on a regular and ongoing basis.
