Infinigate launches next-gen cyber observability solution
Wed, 29th Nov 2023

Infinigate UK & Ireland has released a new leading-edge NGCO, a cyber observability framework, amid growing cyber threat complexities.

In a response to escalating cyber threats and complex cyber landscapes, Infinigate UK&I has launched a next-generation cyber observability solution named NGCO. Drawing upon the expertise of five leading cybersecurity vendors - Anomali, Cybereason, Gigamon, LogRhythm, and Vectra, this framework aims to provide a unified and interoperable offering tailored to enhance risk visibility across a client's extended hybrid network.

According to the company, Infinigate's NGCO framework represents a new approach to cyber observability in response to evolving challenges in the digital landscape. "The extended attack surface, generated by our increasingly distributed networks, means we are subject to an augmented risk factor that can result in crippling data and reputational losses for businesses,” the company said, stating the need for its comprehensive solution at both the corporate and enterprise level.

In addition to the traditional cybersecurity triad of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Network Detection and Response (NDR) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), the NGCO solution integrates advanced threat intelligence tools and data analysis capabilities. This enhanced system ensures the rapid identification and prevention of cyber breaches, Infinigate said .

According to Lewis Dick, Alliance Director at Infinigate UK&I, “NGCO is a way to rein in complexity through a complete and integrated cyber solution with the best from five specialist vendors, designed to be simple to implement.

"Our partners’ corporate and enterprise customers with a Security Operations Centre (SOC) will value a simplified approach to cyber observability through a single provider," he said.

Infinigate said the NGCO framework centralises on the Gigamon Deep Observability pipeline to streamline the data feed into the SIEM and NDR platforms. Vectra’s NDR platform then utilises AI and deep learning to uncover cyber threats within the network. Following this, Cybereason’s NGAV and EDR components deploy their dominant MITRE ATT&CK capabilities within the endpoints. Subsequently, LogRhythm’s AXON SaaS SIEM platform aggregates the data to provide powerful analytics and Incident Response capabilities. Finally, the system is reinforced by external Threat Intelligence from Anomali’s landscape monitoring services.

Infinigate's value-added composite offering shapes a new horizon in cybersecurity, with an array of integrated solutions that arm businesses of all sizes against the rising wave of cyber threats. These efforts coincide with the rising importance of cybersecurity discussions at the board level, ensuring a versatile, robust and easy-to-implement approach to cyber observability.
