HPE Buys Security Analytics With Niara

HPE announces the acquisition of Niara, a specialist in User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA), in order to enhance the Aurba ClearPass offering. Financial details are not available.

It offers behavioural analytics software able to automate the detection of attacks and risky behaviours, including threats able to penetrate traditional firewalls and other perimeter systems.

"Integrating Niara's advanced behavioral analytics with ClearPass is a natural extension that will now deliver network-wide, real time visibility and predictive assessment of potential risks inside the enterprise," Niara says. "We also are excited to elevate our relationship from a ClearPass Exchange integration partner, to directly contributing to Aruba's growth."

Mirai Botnet Spreads Across the World

The Mirai botnet responsible for the recent internet outage of almost 1 million Deutsche Telekom customers is going global-- security firm Flashpoint reports the malware variant has spread to at least 10 other countries.

Countries affected by the Mirai variant include the UK, Italy, Ireland, Turkey, Brazil, Iran, Chile, Australia and Argentina and Thailand, as well as Germany. Flashpoint does not know the actual number of infected devices, but some estimates put the number to around 5 million. Either way, as the security company puts it, it makes for a "sizable population."

Mirai first made the news back in October 2016 as the botnet responsible for the DDoS attack big enough to disrupt internet traffic across the US. The malware affects connected devices with weak default passwords, making them easy to infect. A new Mirai strain is responsible for the attack on Deutsche Telekom, specifically through a vulnerability in the SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) services embedded in Zyxel router products.
