US-based cybersecurity vendor Dtex Systems has opened its Australian headquarters in Canberra.
The software vendor's advanced user behaviour intelligence platform combines endpoint-based user visibility with adaptive analytics.
Dtex will work alongside Canberra-based professional services provider Delv to deliver the platform, in addition to both companies’ government offerings.
Delv provides security and mobility services for government and private sector organisations, with a focus on security for endpoints.
“At Delv, we have been on the hunt for new and innovative approaches that can extend an agency’s security capabilities,” Delv chief executive Sam Smair said.
“In general, we have always maintained a strong focus on new products that complement an organisation’s existing security posture, technology and processes, and come with integrated data analytics.”
He said that Dtex fits the bill, with its ability to close major security gaps caused by negligent and malicious insider behaviour, as well as integrate with existing security log data management and analysis tools.
“Delv is recognised as a highly respected, trusted industry partner by public and private organisations across Australia and we are excited to work together to protect the government sector from the potentially catastrophic effects of data loss while playing a part in boosting the country’s cyber security capabilities,” Dtex Systems chief technology officer Mohan Koo.
“Insider threats require a unique, comprehensive approach that goes far beyond traditional network defenses and legacy security technologies.”
“To successfully identify and mitigate these threats, it is imperative to analyse and build a contextual understanding of user behaviour while also putting a clear focus on maintaining user privacy.”
