Nuix: Achieving Total Data Intelligence

Stuart Clarke, Head of Security & Intelligence Solutions
The measures taken for cybersecurity are predominantly multifaceted initiatives for safeguarding an enterprise against unforeseen circumstances. More often than not, such unexpected threats are a result of internal vulnerabilities such as risk-prone individuals that jeopardize the data sets within an organization. “Security is often seen as a technological problem, but in reality, an organization’s biggest asset—the people—pose the highest risk to confidential information, as external forces exploiting business vulnerabilities easily manipulate these individuals,” begins Stuart Clarke, head of security and intelligence solutions at Nuix.

By delivering ‘total data intelligence,’ Nuix not only establishes a proactive and secure working environment but also ensures that organizations visualize security threats in real time and combat them instantaneously. The company specializes in software that pinpoints the critical information organizations need to anticipate, detect, and act on cybersecurity, risk, and compliance threats. Nuix’s solutions have the ability to collect structured and unstructured data sources including mobile data, email, documents and cloud repositories, to identify hidden connections between people, objects, locations, and events. This enables us to provide real-time clarity, control, and efficiency to uncover the key facts and their context.

One of the key differentiating factors of Nuix’s portfolio is how the company delivers adaptive endpoint security solutions. “Our solutions adapt to the threats of an environment and authorize the access of information by configuring the technology stack based on the requirements and necessities of an organization,” explains Clarke. The company has developed a logic engine that allows clients to define rules and actions for various threat detection events. Through this mechanism, organizations can quarantine threats and obtain intelligence pertaining to passive events. Such an approach goes a long way in bracing a company against unforeseen vagaries of the data-driven operations. Clarke considers the example of a ransomware outbreak to illustrate the flexibility of Nuix’s adaptive security solution.
When a malicious document is opened accidentally, the logic engine determines the patterns of events occurring within the system, suppresses risk-prone activities, and proactively protects the organization by learning about such threats simultaneously. The company also hires the best subject matter experts and security engineers to ensure customers and partners can maximize the effectiveness of its technology. Nuix has developed a vast network of partners to help clients and deliver additional support to fulfill the need of the hour.

“Most of the clients that seek our assistance already have security products safeguarding their organizations. However, they come to us because of the gaps that exist in the cybersecurity solution that they would have employed, as building higher walls and deeper moats do not necessarily keep the bad guys out. Nuix helps customers respond to, triage, and investigate incidents in real-time,” says Clarke. Another reason customers come to Nuix is to have a viable option to consolidate the number of agents operating on their endpoints. One client had over ten agents deployed on each of their endpoints causing performance issues, and they desperately needed to reduce that number down to something more manageable.

With Nuix, customers have the ability to automatically take action—prevent, detect, remediate—based on malicious behavior at the endpoint, making it harder for intruders and insiders to target valuable data and limiting the damage they can cause. Numerous such examples have earned Nuix the well-deserved spotlight in the cybersecurity, risk, and compliance landscape since its inception. Today, Nuix stands tall as one of the only companies delivering a broad coverage of endpoint security, encompassing endpoint protection, risk-mitigation, and risk investigation capabilities.
