Security startup records a year's network data

Jeremy Kirk | March 25, 2015
Customers can choose what they want to record, but the sensors can capture everything.

For those who are worried about shipping their entire network data to the cloud, ProtectWise has developed a way to make its storage more secure.

It calls the method "network shattering," and it involves splitting up data sent to its cloud platform and scattering it. The data is encrypted, of course, but it's also spread across ProtectWise's storage infrastructure. An attacker capturing part of the data couldn't reconstruct it or identify which organization it belongs to.

ProtectWise's customers hold all the decryption keys and can revoke those keys to make the data inaccessible, said Gene Stevens, ProtectWise's CTO.

ProtectWise charges based on how much data a customer wants to record and how long they want it retained. Its standard offering is one year of data retention, but it can be more if a customer chooses, Chasin said.

Universal Music Group has been testing ProtectWise.

"Until now, it was a luxury to be able to retain and continuously analyze full packet capture for more than a two-week period, and it was impossible to automatically play it back for retrospective analysis and detection," said Arthur Lessard, senior vice president and chief information security officer at Universal Music Group, in an email comment.
