Unipart Cyber Security Makes 2017 Best Computer Forensics Solution Shortlist

24th March 2017 | All

Unipart Cyber Security a Unipart Group company has been shortlisted as a finalist with its Zero Day Detection (ZDD) solution in the SC Europe Excellence Awards: Threat Solutions for best Computer Forensics Solution.

Established in 2015 Unipart Cyber Security provides a complete suite of cyber and information security services to both public and private sector organisations. To date the organisation has worked across a large number of sectors including healthcare, property, financial services as well as oil and gas.

The SC Awards are hosted and run by SC Media, leaders in information and media for cyber security professionals in the UK and Europe. The awards recognise the achievements of companies and security professionals striving to safeguard businesses, their customers and critical data in Europe.

Unipart Cyber Security’s proprietary solution for breach monitoring is its Zero Day Detection solution. On average, it can take seven months from day zero before a new threat is discovered and added to the threat lists, meaning organisations can be operating with unknown vulnerabilities for significant periods of time unaware of the compromise. ZDD’s main differentiator is the throughput and processing performance, which can reach 15 Terabytes per hour scanning against millions of potential threats in parallel. From a customer perspective, this can result in major time and cost saving from discovery to remediation.

Managing Director of Unipart Cyber Security Nigel Arkwright commented on the shortlisting “We are delighted to have been recognised for our innovation and pursuit of excellence in information security alongside a number of well-established organisations. As Unipart Cyber Security we have focused on continued product and service innovation aiming to continually improve and develop the cyber security industry, to ensure that the integrity of business assets around the world remain intact.”

As soon as a new threat becomes known, organisations ideally need to rapidly assess their networks for signs of a breach and assess what impact it may have had, especially in terms of data loss. However in reality this major task can involve deep analysis of potentially Terabytes of log files taking hundreds of specialist man-hours to complete. The result can be that many organisations simply do not have the necessary resources to carry out the required forensic analysis and choose just to update their security systems to recognise this latest known threat and carry-on. ZDD is based on a high-performance analytics platform capable of reducing the task to just a few hours.
