Eye Security and APTA Technologies are changing the way companies do forensic research

Eye Security and APTA Technologies have teamed up to work on a new, less labour-intensive way of handling cyber incidents. By combining the AI-model of APTA Technologies with the cyber security knowledge of Eye Security, a new system is created that will be able to guide forensic investigations. The added value of the collaboration was assessed by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland) and then recognized as a project eligible for subsidy because of its unique and completely new approach.

The system that is being created will provide Security Analysts with an initial idea of how and where exactly a compromise started. This means that compromise assessments will be easier and less-time consuming. Tijmen Mulder, Lead Incident Response at Eye Security is excited about this collaboration: “During the assessment of an incident, you want to make sure to work as fast as possible while making as little mistakes as possible. The technique provides Analysts with a more complete picture of the comprise.”APTA technologies and Eye Security

Promising results

Even though the cyber security landscape has loads of different detection techniques, this is a whole new approach. Sicco Verwer, CTO at APTA Technologies: “Such a backwards anomaly technique is new, and the first tests show very promising results. In the next phase we want to validate the performance of the model and estimate the cuts in time even better. To be continued, I'd say.”
