Exonar Raven and Lumeta IPsonar Find an Organization’s ‘Crown Jewels’ and the Unknown Devices on Which They Reside

Somerset, NJ and Newbury, UK – June 10, 2014Lumeta Corporation and Exonar Ltd today announced the integration of their Lumeta IPsonar network situational awareness and Exonar Raven big data analytics solutions. Through this technology partnership IT organizations will obtain better data security across the entire enterprise network by understanding what their high value information is, who is accessing it, and where it is residing on their often vast infrastructures. Armed with this information, the ‘crown jewels’ of an organization can be better identified and safeguarded from both outside and insider threats.

Understanding where an organization’s important information lives is not trivial. Valuable information on the corporate network is unstructured, poorly managed, incorrectly or not protectively marked, and it’s there in such huge volumes that tackling the issue is an enormous undertaking. To compound the problem, organizations are adopting new devices at an ever-increasing rate and the boundaries of the very networks on which these devices run are increasingly permeable. There are large gaps in network intelligence, with as much as 20% of the environment not under management. These gaps leave security professionals blind to unknown portions of the infrastructure or unmanaged devices on the network. Data that resides on or is moved to an unknown or unmanaged part of the network may represent the greatest level of risk to the organization.

The Exonar Raven – Lumeta IPsonar integrated solution provides information security professionals with a unified data search and security strategy that incorporates comprehensive network situational awareness.

How Does It Work?

Lumeta IPsonar discovers an organization’s available network space, including hidden and unknown networks, devices and information stores. IPsonar’s open data formats and APIs deliver discovered network information to Exonar Raven for crawling the network to perform data search. The combined solution provides the reach of IPsonar’s network discovery with the depth of Raven’s Big Data Content Intelligence Analytics to deliver intelligent data search and security across millions of devices and petabytes of data.

“Feeding the IPsonar discovery intelligence into Exonar Raven provides the most complete starting point for information analytics,” said Matt Webster, Lumeta’s Chief Technology Officer. “IPsonar can provide the comprehensiveness and scale required for Big Data, versus relying upon an IPAM or a spreadsheet listing the network file shares and data repositories.”

The integrated solution is of noted use in instances where an organization needs to ascribe value to information at scale, such as PCI DSS or Personally Identifiable Information compliance, Information Management, Data Carve Out and Data Segregation projects, as well as Intellectual Property Theft Protection – whether insider threat or targeted attacks.

“Once you understand what information is valuable, where it is located and to whom it is valuable, you can then start tackling the problems of scale, compliance, accessibility, theft and whistle-blowing,” said Adrian Barrett, Founder and CEO, Exonar Ltd. “This integrated solution provides the first truly large scale solution for organizations looking to identify and protect their Crown Jewels.”
