Thales and Airbus sign cyber threat detection agreement
Thales’ cyber attack detection system Cybels Sensor and the Airbus CyberSecurity’s Orion Malware to provide businesses and organisations with solution combining detection with incident response
Airbus CyberSecurity and Thales have signed a partnership agreement offering a unique solution against cyber attacks. The solution will combine the file analysis system Orion Malware from Airbus CyberSecurity with Thales’s intrusion detection system Cybels Sensor, which obtained Security Visa from the French national cybersecurity agency (ANSSI) in April 2019.
The agreement will enable the two companies to offer the best detection solution on the market, increasing the overall level of cyber defence for businesses and organisations. The partnership for the French market aims to help key operators reinforce cyber protection measures required by ANSSI with the Military Programming Law (LPM).
Threats detected through analyses of large data volumes
The Cybels Sensor detection system from Thales enables organisations and businesses to detect cyber attacks by confidently monitoring their networks. Through real-time analyses of large data volumes, potential threats can be detected. The sensor alerts cybersecurity teams as early as possible to maximise the protection of monitored networks. Customers already equipped with this solution include postal services Le Groupe La Poste and the European Space Agency (ESA) for its Galileo satellite-based positioning system.
In conjunction with Airbus’ Orion Malware, suspicious files captured on a network by Cybels Sensor are analysed in depth in less than a minute. After the analysis, Orion Malware will return a report detailing the risks and indicators of compromise. A summary accessible to non-experts is also provided to efficiently prepare the response to the incident.
Orion Malware works like a detonation chamber for malware, combining static and dynamic detection engines to uncover the stealthiest malware threats. Orion also integrates artificial intelligence to improve the classification of detected malware.
The Orion Malware with Cybels Sensor solution is easy to implement and is fully adapted and optimised for Security Operations Centres (SOCs), incident response and cyber threat intelligence operations, reducing the costs of operating and protecting IT infrastructure.
