Symantec acquires security management technology

Symantec yesterday announced its acquisition of Mountain Wave, a provider of enterprise security management software and services.

The acquisition for $US20 million in cash brings to Symantec the patent-pending CyberWolf technology, which is designed to automate the detection of security incidents by intelligent analysis of security events and alerts in real-time, according to Symantec. CyberWolf is to become a component of Symantec's enterprise security solutions.

CyberWolf addresses issues of responding to the wealth of information being generated by various security applications deployed across a network by reducing, correlating and prioritising security events, Symantec said. Data is taken from multi-sensor, multi-vendor environments and true security incidents are identified in real-time.

CyberWolf monitors, filters and correlates the analysis of event data in multi-vendor environments. Through an internal knowledge base, the software tracks and matches patterns of attack that may take place over time from multiple sources.
