Bringing threat detection and response capabilities to production networks, cybersecurity company HYAS Infosec is set to release a new, specifically targeted security solution dubbed HYAS Confront.

Aiming to address security issues on cloud-based production networks — which the company defines as the infrastructure behind businesses’ outward-facing, revenue-driving applications — the software is designed to continuously monitor traffic to uncover anomalies and enhance risk mitigation.

“HYAS is focused on providing our clients and customers with the solutions that they require for true business resiliency, continuity, and risk management,” says HYAS CEO David Ratner.  HYAS Confront “has already been proven in live deployments” among some customers, Ratner says, and will be available in general availability to customers in June.

HYAS Confront uses a supervised learning model

HYAS Confront records all internal machine-to-machine communication in the production network as well as the communications leaving the network. Using this knowledge, HYAS analyzes communication destinations, traffic patterns, and related data to initially determine what may be anomalous.

“Continual analysis combined with human intervention enables HYAS to determine a baseline of ‘standard’ operations which future anomalies can be compared against,” says Ratner. Confront then utilizes “advanced threat assessment and machine learning” to continuously monitor for anomalies and uncharacteristic activity that break from pre-established patterns.

“Standard” operations are analogous to “labels” in supervised machine learning models, which are used in training data to help the model identify and register patterns and later match and validate test data.
