Blue Hexagon named as a Representative Vendor in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Network Detection and Response

“Applying machine learning and other analytical techniques to network traffic is helping enterprises detect suspicious traffic that other security tools are missing,” said Lawrence Orans, Jeremy D’Hoinne and Josh Chessman in the report.

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(Businesswire)–Blue Hexagon, deep learning innovator of Cyber AI You Can Trust™ to stop cyber adversaries and malware in real time before infiltration, was recognized in the Gartner Market Guide for Network Detection and Response.

According to the report, “NDR solutions primarily use non-signature-based techniques (for example, machine learning or other analytical techniques) to detect suspicious traffic on enterprise networks. NDR tools continuously analyze raw traffic and/or flow records to build models that reflect normal network behavior. When the NDR tools detect suspicious traffic patterns, they raise alerts. In addition to monitoring north/south traffic that crosses the enterprise perimeter, NDR solutions can also monitor east/west communications by analyzing traffic from strategically placed network sensors.”

“Blue Hexagon Next-Gen Network Detection and Response solution provides real-time visibility & protection for cloud and network. We analyze both headers and files to instantly stop zero-day malware and threats before infiltration, and reduce SOC alert overload,” said Nayeem Islam CEO and Founder of Blue Hexagon. “Our approach is unique in its use of real time deep learning with explanations and is superior to anomaly detection which cannot go beyond threat attribution leaving the root cause analysis as post-mortem work for the already overburdened security analyst.”
