  • Rapid7 Introduces Nexpose 6.0 With Adaptive Security

    BOSTON, Oct. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapid7, Inc. (NASDAQ:RPD), a leading provider of security data and analytics solutions, today announced the release of Nexpose 6.0 featuring Adaptive Security, a new capability that will help organizations respond more effectively to evolving security risks. The enhanced solution for Threat Exposure Management delivers prioritized insight into changes on your network and the impact of newly discovered vulnerabilities, quickly identifying critical threats with guidance for fast remediation.

    Adaptive Security dynamically collects and analyzes security data, providing attack surface visibility with risk assessment. By focusing on important network changes, Adaptive Security helps IT security professionals better identify and understand their risk, and take action when necessary. Adaptive Security automatically identifies and assesses vulnerabilities and exposures when new assets join the network and when assets rejoin the network. Additionally, Adaptive Security will quickly analyze your security data to provide visibility into and show the potential impact of newly identified vulnerabilities.

    Adaptive Security delivers the benefits of continuous monitoring without the noise of unfiltered alerts or the network performance tax of continuous scanning. Further, Adaptive Security automated actions are simple for customers to create because they require no coding and are flexible, so they can better meet specific user needs.

    "Security teams are struggling to stay ahead of changes in their environments and the threat landscape while managing the noise that comes with traditional, continuous monitoring solutions. Adaptive Security cuts through the clutter and puts control back into the hands of IT security professionals," said Lee Weiner, senior vice president of products and engineering at Rapid7. "This level of ongoing awareness and visibility means that significant risks are quickly evaluated and teams are empowered to take action when necessary."

    Nexpose 6.0 also extends IT security teams' ability to assess their attack surface by integrating data from Project Sonar – a research project from Rapid7 Labs that scans the internet every week for any external facing IP addresses associated with a given domain. The Sonar integration allows teams to discover internet accessible assets they may not have been aware of otherwise.

    Better Understand the Risk Exposure from New Vulnerabilities

    In 2014, three major vulnerabilities, Heartbleed, Shellshock, and Poodle, left organizations of all sizes and stages of security maturity open to attacks from cyber criminals. Adaptive Security automatically scans for critical threats, like those mentioned above, and measures risk exposure against emerging vulnerabilities, providing context and prioritization with Nexpose RealRisk and RealContext.

    "Nexpose Adaptive Security allows me to understand my organization's exposure to threats, including newly discovered vulnerabilities, without having to initiate an assessment," said Billy Lewis, director of information technology at State Garden. "As soon as a new vulnerability is discovered, I have a report detailing my risk – that's very powerful."

    The New Nexpose Experience

    With a newly streamlined navigation and an easy to use interface, Nexpose can improve security professionals' productivity by extending security team resources. Easy navigation, built-in automation, and the ability to tune Nexpose to your IT environment mean security staff spends less time in the technology and more time acting on the recommendations and making an impact. The improved user experience for Nexpose is part of an ongoing commitment from Rapid7 to make security software easy to use and learn, helping lean teams achieve greater productivity.

    Nexpose 6.0 will be available in October of 2015, and will also be localized into Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese.

    For detailed system requirements, price quotes, and additional information visit or call Rapid7 at + 1 617 247 1717.

    About Rapid7 Nexpose

    Rapid7 Nexpose is a Threat Exposure Management solution that dynamically collects data and analyzes risk across vulnerabilities, configurations, and controls, from the endpoint to the cloud. Nexpose is engineered to enable IT security teams to identify, assess and respond to critical change as it happens with Adaptive Security. Users can more efficiently manage risk found in operating systems, third-party software, Web applications, browsers and databases all in one solution with over 68,000 vulnerabilities and 163,000 vulnerability checks. The unique integration with Rapid7's Metasploit, RealRisk score, and contextual business intelligence make Nexpose a Threat Exposure Management solution that prioritizes remediation and helps reduce risk. Its user interface, and smart analytics—such as the Top 25 Remediation report and custom reporting—allow security teams to communicate risk and remediation more effectively. Nexpose could be used to improve a company's overall risk posture to better comply with regulations, including security requirements for PCI, CIS, HIPAA, HITECH Act, FISMA (including SCAP Compliance), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), and NERC CIP. Nexpose, as a core component of Rapid7's Security Data and Analytics platform, promotes an active, analytics-driven approach to cyber security.

  • UBIC Launches "Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai" Business Data Analysis Services

    Identifies Opportunities and Risks Hidden in Business Communications

    Provides a Wide Range of Applications, including Sales Support, Project Management, Personnel Affairs Management and Customer Support

    NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158) ("UBIC" or "the Company"), a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, today announced that it will start providing "Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai" on October 1. This is a business data analysis support system that identifies potential opportunities and risks through AI-based analysis of corporate electronic data, including business emails and business reports.

    Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai helps users recognize business opportunities and mitigate risks by identifying clues in email messages from customers. For example, the system may be programmed to identify texts containing sentences that may indicate customers' implicit wishes, such as the hope for a salesperson to visit.

    The procedures for using the system are as follows:

    1. Information known as teaching data, which is classified by whether risk or opportunity identification is necessary based on customers' experiences and an organization's tacit knowledge, is fed into Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai.
    2. Electronic data that users want to have analyzed, including emails and business reports, are imported from their mail and file servers into Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai, which is installed in UBIC's Intelligence Cloud.
    3. The imported electronic data is analyzed and scores are assigned to messages and even particular sentences or phrases in accordance with their relevance based on the provided teaching data, displaying their relative rankings in terms of relevance.
    4. The system may be programmed so as to automatically alert users when messages or reports with a higher score than the prescribed level has been identified or to provide detailed information concerning messages or reports that receive high scores.
    5. The system compiles statistical and analytical reports concerning the detection and prediction of potential opportunities and risks.

    Other characteristics of Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai are as follows:

    • Feedback mechanism allows continuous improvement of the AI capabilities

    It is possible to improve the opportunity and risk identification accuracy of the system's AI capabilities by giving the system feedback concerning the analysis results.

    • Investigation of information transmission routes enables identification of relevant parties' personal relationship networks

    The Central Linkage function of Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai displays a chart of the relationships between people recognized as "subject to in-depth investigation" and other people in an organization based on data concerning who sent emails to whom and who is copied on the correspondence. This function makes it possible to identify cases where persons who should have received certain information did not and cases where persons received certain information that they should not have.

    • Versatile reporting function

    In addition to assigning scores to electronic data on a case-by-case basis, Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai reports on the number of messages or reports containing identified risks on a division-by-division basis and on an employee-by-employee basis, as well as time-sequential changes in the number. Managers can thus recognize general trends without looking at individual messages. In additional to finding potential problems and averting risks, Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai can also be used for various other purposes such as identifying prospective customers and detecting factors obstructing sales activities. Sharing of information across business divisions can help companies to better identify problems and measure results.

    • Future collaboration with external systems through the provision of application program interface ("API")

    In the future, the Company plans to enable Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai to collaborate with external systems through the provision of an API. UBIC also plans to enable collaboration with the report output and analysis functions developed by sales agents.

    Email has now replaced the telephone as the main medium of business communication. This situation has made it more difficult for business division managers to keep track of communications between employees and customers, and to monitor email messages thoroughly. Furthermore, the popularity of internal email communication has reduced the amount of verbal communication among employees.

    Lit i View AI Sukedachi Samurai has been developed as a system to support the Company's clients by detecting potential business opportunities and risks in a timely manner. UBIC will promote "practical AI", which solves challenges and reduces the burden on users by feeding company-specific empirical data into AI systems, including people's tacit knowledge and intuitions.

    About UBIC, Inc.

    UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158) supports the analysis of big data based on behavior informatics by utilizing its technology, "VIRTUAL DATA SCIENTIST" or VDS. UBIC's VDS technology is driven by UBIC AI based on knowledge acquired through its litigation support services. The VDS incorporates experts' tacit knowledge, including their experiences and intuitions, and utilizes that knowledge for big data analysis. UBIC continues to expand its business operations by applying VDS to new fields such as healthcare and marketing.

    UBIC was founded in 2003 as a provider of e-discovery and international litigation support services. These services include the preservation, investigation and analysis of evidence materials contained in electronic data, and computer forensic investigation. UBIC provides e-discovery and litigation support by making full use of its data analysis platform, "Lit i View®", and its Predictive Coding technology adapted to Asian languages.

This visibility makes it dramatically easier for veteran and novice developers alike to quickly understand, modify and troubleshoot even the oldest, most complex and/or poorly documented mainframe code.

    Topaz RV's capabilities are extraordinarily valuable to companies as they face the challenge of more frequently updating their business-critical mainframe applications in response to ever-changing business requirements. Without Topaz RV, discovering and understanding the calls mainframe programs make to other applications and databases during runtime can be an extremely slow, difficult and error-prone process—especially for inexperienced mainframe developers faced with applications that may have little or no documentation.

    With Topaz RV, in stark contrast, developers can generate an intuitive map of the external calls a program executes during any specified runtime within minutes—without the need to refer to source code—saving them hours or days of painstaking work, while ensuring the accuracy and completeness of their results.

    Topaz RV also enables developers to drill down into a program's external calls to see how often programs call each other during a runtime and/or the specific datasets a program accesses at each point in its execution. This insight helps them better pinpoint potential performance bottlenecks, inefficiencies and inter-program impacts.

    Topaz RV is an ideal complement to traditional source-code parsing, which itemizes all out-of-program calls written into an application's code. By discovering and mapping only the program-to-program calls that actually occur during a live runtime of any developer-specified task—such as placing an order or running a monthly report—Topaz RV gives developers a clear and accurate "snapshot" of a program's real behavior in the production environment under present conditions.

    The new Topaz release also enables developers of all skill levels to more quickly and accurately perform impact analyses by creating Java-like "projects"—logical collections of data sources—that allow them to discover and investigate dependencies across programs and copybooks, without having to move code off the mainframe.

    Combined with the capabilities already provided by this year's three previous Topaz releases—including cross-platform data visualization and editing, static COBOL and PL/I code visualization, and Java-on-mainframe performance management—this ground-breaking release removes impediments that have historically prevented enterprises from reaping the full potential value of their mainframe applications, data and hardware.

    These impediments include:

    • Declining in-house mainframe programming expertise and experience
    • Inadequate documentation of mainframe applications
    • Uncertain reliability of available source code
    • Slow change management processes that depend excessively on manual program analysis and/or idiosyncratic knowledge of key SMEs
    • The high business risk associated with making changes in an environment of complex and inadequately understood dependencies/impacts
    • Poor collaboration between mainframe and non-mainframe developers

    These impediments are becoming particularly problematic as mainframe applications are increasingly called upon to support the mobile customer experience and other essential aspects of digital business.

    "In a business environment that demands we constantly update our application code to address relentlessly changing market realities, it is imperative for our mainframe environment to be as agile as our other platforms," said Mr. Roberto Schmid, Service Manager Corporate IT Operations at Helvetia Insurance. "Compuware is enabling us achieve that agility by delivering solutions that help bring contemporary DevOps best practices to the mainframe, so we can fully leverage the value of our mainframe application portfolio—as well as the platform's compelling performance, reliability, scalability, security and workload economics."

    "Mainframes have long been the platform of choice for enterprise systems of record, and today they are the backbone for many modern digital applications," said Jason Bloomberg, president of digital transformation analyst firm Intellyx. "Compuware's commitment to supporting current as well as the next generation of mainframe professionals with easy to use, innovative tools is of great service to enterprise customers who recognize the mainframe as the modern, digital platform it will continue to be for years to come."

    Compuware's Agile Culture and "Gary's Awesome Idea"

    With this fourth major new release of Topaz in 2015—an unprecedented pace of innovation for a mainframe ISV—Compuware, in addition to enabling mainframe agility, is also exemplifying it.

    The story behind the creation of Topaz RV is particularly telling. Compuware software architect Gary Michalek came up with the idea for Topaz RV over the July 4 weekend while thinking about challenges he was facing on a current project. When he returned to work that Tuesday, he ran the idea by some colleagues. On Wednesday, he was in Compuware CEO Chris O'Malley's office presenting his idea. On Thursday, the company's product council met and gave Michalek one week to investigate his idea further with customers and appropriate Compuware SMEs—and show a prototype. That meeting, in turn, resulted in a green light for the project.

    Over the following weeks, the Topaz RV team used an Agile approach to write and test code—as well as review output with customer and internal evaluators. As customers responded enthusiastically, Runtime Visualizer was elevated to the primary feature of the new release.

    And on October 1—just 84 days after Michalek's original conception—the innovative new high-value solution was ready for customers' production environments.

    "Anyone who says the mainframe is inherently slower and less responsive than other platforms has just been proven wrong," says O'Malley. "'Gary's Awesome Idea' demonstrates that you can move as quickly on the mainframe as on any other platform—if you have the right culture, the right processes and the right tools."
