FREMONT, CA: Cyber threat is creating havoc in business; enterprises are striving hard to safeguard their most valuable assets and customer data. Most cyber security breaches take advantage of already well-known vulnerabilities while some are the results of zero-day security attacks that are extremely hard to detect by traditional IT security solutions. At this instance Above Security, a Canadian-based global IT security service provider announces a partnership with Solana Networks, a Canadian technology vendor to improve security of customers.

The partnership adds Flow Capture and Network Behavior Analysis (NBA) capabilities to Above Security’s ArkAngel platform in order to identify network anomalies and pinpoint hard-to-detect security threats. This will allow ArkAngel to analyze network flow traffic to detect zero-day security attacks. The new capability complements signature-based threat detection and significantly enhances Above Security’s security analysts’ capacity of detecting early and previously unknown threats.

“The rapid changes in cyber security threats demand a proactive approach to IT security addressing the dynamic nature of new and emerging threats. Adding these new capabilities to our ArkAngel platform will allow our security analysts and experts to do that,” says Mario Venditti, Above Security’s chief operating officer.

Above Security has built a strong network of business alliances in multiple regions of the world. Through its newly formed partnership with Solana Networks, Above Security will greatly enhance its ability to add to its existing service portfolio to deliver higher value Managed Security Services to its customers.

“Above Security has a first rate security analytics team which secures their client networks all around the globe. We are delighted to enter into a technology partnership with the company, assisting them to safeguard client networks from security threats and strengthening their position in the cyber security arms race,” adds Nabil Seddigh, Solana Networks’ president.
