As cyber attacks are continuously advancing in sophistication and frequency, the traditional security measures are not enough to protect organizations. Firewalls, IDP / IPS are all bypassed by today’s intruders, making it imperative to search for a more sophisticated security solution.

AbuseSA from Synopsys is a next-generation threat intelligence platform provides organizations with complete situational awareness. It is an essential tool for Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), Security Operations Centre (SOC) and Cyber Authorities.

AbuseSA assimilates, categorizes, and integrates threat data into actionable intelligence that lets users view and share information through an interactive, browser-based dashboard. The power of AbuseSA lies in its ability to analyze and contextualize threat information, ensuring that only the most relevant incidents are filtered. When any suspicious behavior is detected on the network, AbuseSA immediately raises a flag. The system saves menial intervention time by automatically undertaking remedial measures tasks that include sending an email, generating a report, or filing a trouble ticket. Your security team can take over now to mitigate the threat to your network.

AbuseSA takes a holistic approach in tackling network security issues on a real-time basis. The system has 5 different pre-built dashboards: timeline, matrix, map, event horizon, and raw data. Each dashboard is customizable and displayed beside one another in a single seamless interface, allowing defence teams to simultaneously monitor threats from multiple angles.

With an intuitive user interface and flexible report generation features, AbuseSA is the most powerful and versatile platform available.

Collaborate with nation-critical organizations to detect and block cyber attacks
By automating their abuse handling, CERT-FI was able to increase the amount of cases they handled by 2,000% within 6 years.Within a year, the national SOC collected 6 million raw events from which AbuseSA indentified 259 events, 16 of which were confirmed to be high severity cases.Cyber authorities share real-time abuse information with nation-critical organizations that are suspected to be under attack. Together, they detect and defend against cyber attacks that could put a nation at risk.
