Fujitsu has announced its high-speed forensic technology to identify the extent of damage targeted cyber attacks caused to an organization’s intranet. This technology developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. will be made available in Japan from June 2017. It will accelerate the time to identify damage from several weeks to tens of minutes.
The forensic technology will be offered as a function added to the Fujitsu Security Solution Global Managed Security Service, providing integrated lifecycle support to strengthen security resilience, risk mitigation and minimizing cyberattacks damages.
Fujitsu has also signed an agreement with US-based Dtex Systems to launch solutions in Japan that combine Fujitsu’s services with Dtex Systems’ advanced user behavior intelligence technology. It looks at the ordinary behavior of users at endpoints and then detects behavior that suggests internal wrongdoing. The solutions will analyze risks of internal impropriety that could lead to information leaks.

This proprietary technology aims at enabling rapid determination of the extent of damage from cyber attacks by detecting and analyzing behaviors unique to targeted attacks from internet communications data. With this functionality, the Global Managed Security Service will be monitoring a customer’s intranet 24x 7, for 365 days a year from the Security Operation Center.
In the case of the detection of an external intrusion from a targeted attack, Fujitsu’s security experts will be able to determine the extent of the attack and report it immediately to the customer. After this, customers can grasp the infection pathway used by the malware sent by the attacker and which devices are infected. This will not only help them to prevent the infection from spreading by removing the detected devices but they will also be able to take immediate countermeasures aimed at business continuity to minimize the damage.
