Public Profile

Observable Networks Inc. is an emerging leader of network security technology and advanced threat detection services that identify compromised and misused networked devices currently escaping detection by network security tools. Observable's endpoint modeling technology includes a cloud-based service platform incorporating automated security analytics and real-time traffic sensors to continuously model all devices on networks of any size, all the time. Endpoint modeling is indifferent to encryption and does not use threat signatures. Observable empowers organizations to readily understand normal and abnormal device behaviors in their networks, helping them to identify compromised devices and facilitate faster remediation. Working in the space of Continuous Device Profiling (CDP) -- technology and security service platforms that are able to offer unprecedented visibility into the behavior of all network devices, all the time, and in real-time. Relevant to networks ranging from 100's to millions of individual devices. Observable uses a big data, cloud-based system able to detect suspicious behavior by network devices. Most current perimeter-based security systems --- firewalls, antivirus, and intrusion detection systems -- are increasingly ineffective due to the rapid growth of encrypted zero-day malware, advanced persistent threats, and other forms of compromise related to network endpoints. Observable offers a SaaS-based system that detects suspicious behavior by network devices in a unique, end-user friendly approach to threat detection and network management. In July 2017 it was announced tha IT giant Cisco had acquired Observable Networks, in some measure due to the small firm's capacities to provide real-time network behavior monitoring to help IT teams detect anomalies that might be related to security breaches, focusing particularly on cloud deployments. Terms of the deal were not announced
