RANK Software Partners with Next Level Business to Advance Proactive Cybersecurity Solutions

By CIOReview | Tuesday, January 7, 2020
ATLANTA and TORONTO: RANK Software, an AI-based security analytics and threat intelligence platform, and Next Level Business Services, a global leader in Digital Transformation services, announced a partnership to deliver next-generation cybersecurity solutions.

The pace, complexity and persistence of today’s cybersecurity threats is accelerating. Exacerbating this problem is the fact that there is an estimated gap of 3 million skilled cybersecurity professionals worldwide.

RANK and Next Level Business Services (NLB) address this problem by combining RANK’s Virtual Advisor to Security Analysts (VASA) AI-based threat detection platform that provides real-time threat hunting capabilities with NLB’s expertise as a leading Security Services Provider.

Combined, the two organizations will focus on creating next-generation Security Operations Centers and advance the development of VASA by removing friction to enterprise customers consuming leading security solutions.

VASA helps identify and prevent security threats in real-time by ingesting data from network sources and identifying anomalies for security analysts to review. VASA addresses the challenges of identifying internal and unknown threats commonly missed today by perimeter defense systems through:

•Active Learning. RANK Software helps reduce the false positives generated by most AI tools by recoding analyst feedback and allowing them to apply an action to similar alerts. This makes the VASA platform smarter over time allowing security analysts to become more efficient.

• Enterprise Scale. RANK Software ingests data from over 40 sources out of the box including System Network Traffic and End Point log files. It is capable of handling more than 1 billion events a day at 10+ gigabits per second.

• Contextualization. RANK Software builds on the results of AI, machine learning, and behavioral analytics by making the data more consumable and understanding risk thresholds based on context. This helps assemble and interpret the signals needed to hunt and assess threats faster and with high precision.

• Flexible Architecture. On the cloud or on-premise, RANK Software provides unparalleled context and visibility into potential breaches.

“The cybersecurity landscape continues to increase in severity and sophistication,” said Bhaskar Banerjee, President Americas of NLB. “VASA enables customers to take proactive action against threats. Combined with our expertise in service delivery, we are excited to offer our clients this solution as a way to improve their security posture against a rising tide of possible threats.”

“RANK overcomes the challenges of batch analytics, delivers context to data, and focuses on data fidelity,” said Rick Costanzo, CEO, RANK Software. “This partnership with NLB gives us the ability to create next-generation Security Operations Center that will combine the best AI tools for threat hunting with the best cybersecurity.”
