Orsec Technologies boosts next-generation intelligence solution with DPI by Rohde & Schwarz

The French cybersecurity vendor embeds R&S®PACE 2 into its AI-based advanced analytics solution to detect and counter cyber threats in real-time.

Leipzig, Germany – May 22, 2019 – ipoque GmbH, a Rohde & Schwarz company providing market-leading deep packet inspection (DPI) software, today announced that Orsec Technologies SAS has licensed its DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 for their cyber threat hunting solution oorigin®. Providing accurate traffic analytics and a rich set of metadata in real time, R&S®PACE 2 significantly strengthens Orsecs threat hunting capabilities. This allows for more accurate alerts, faster threat detection and enhanced machine learning.

Cyber-attacks have become a constant threat to governments and enterprises. In 2019 there was, so far, no day without a major data leak or data destruction. While larger companies and governments can afford a dedicated team of experts or expensive security tools, small and medium companies are more vulnerable. However, in today’s highly connected IT ecosystems, if security is not established for all companies, there will be no protection at all. oorigin® is a next-generation intelligence solution that enables small and medium-sized organizations to incorporate cyber threat hunting into their security strategy and turn their defense into a proactive offense. According to Jean-Luc Rouinvy, CTO and founder of Orsec Technologies SAS, “many cyber-attacks remain undetected for up to ten months and can cost companies millions of euros.” oorigin® empowers IT, administrators, to proactively search for malware or attackers lurking in the network, discover shadow IT and reduce investigation time after a cyber-incident.

“With R&S®PACE 2, Orsec takes advantage of a DPI solution that can analyze 100% of the traffic in real-time without performance loss. Through its weekly protocol and application signature updates R&S®PACE 2 empowers oorigin® to classify an extensive range of protocols and applications. With the provided metadata, devices, servers and virtual machines can be identified. This way, Orsec is able to offer a proactive, intelligence-driven IT security solution to prevent and disrupt threats. “Moreover, the metadata extracted from traffic flows by R&S®PACE 2 provides a rich information feed that can be used to boost our machine learning for user and device behavior analytics, strengthening our threat analytics and providing priceless information for post cyber incident investigation,” says Jean-Luc Rouinvy. Carsten Fischer, Product Manager at ipoque GmbH is also satisfied: “Our fast and accurate DPI engine combined with deep machine learning will be a game-changer in future IT security. We are excited that Orsec launches such a powerful product and makes it affordable for those who need it the most.”
