Citing on the recognition, Ravi Raman, SVP & Head of Engineering – Security Intelligence & Analytics of Paladion, said, “We are excited and honored that UNICOM has recognized Paladion’s RisqVU ADR. We conceived ADR to address a growing challenge in today’s threat landscape; attackers are using creatively engineered malware and attacks that evade traditional signature based defenses. By the time, these threats are discovered the damage is already done.
“RisqVU ADR was not only built to help detect these hidden threats but also to help security professionals predict and prevent attacks through its visual analytics feature that runs on a big data platform. Huge amounts of data from different security technologies and contextual & historical data from the entire IT stack is plugged to a security intelligence feed that helps anticipate and prepare for an attack,” concluded Ravi.
The finalists for the “Best Analytics Tool” included HCL, Teradata and Allstate.
