Ayehu Introduces Next Generation IT Automation and Orchestration Platform Integrated with Machine Learning Intelligence

Ayehu’s next generation platform, driven by machine learning intelligence, is a force multiplier for overwhelmed and understaffed IT and security operations teams.

Ayehu today introduced its next generation IT automation and orchestration platform for IT and security operations. With intelligent machine learning driven decision support, the platform dynamically creates rule-based recommendations, insights and correlations that provide the operator/analyst with suggestions for how to optimize fully- or semi-automated workflows.

Today’s IT and security operations teams are plagued by a seemingly continuous flood of alerts, incidents and requests. This is compounded by the fact that as businesses scale their systems complexity grows, placing an increased workload on an already inundated workforce. This trend combined with a highly-publicized shortage of skilled, talented workers across both IT and security, has driven the need for intelligence-backed, automated solutions.

“Our next generation platform is the evolution of our successful IT automation solution, designed around our customers’ direct feedback regarding their additional, specific needs,” said Gabby Nizri, CEO of Ayehu. “We believe automation should be simple to implement, manage and maintain, from one, unified platform. Now a SaaS ready platform, Ayehu allows customers and partners to gain efficiencies across their hybrid environments and provide their overworked operators and analysts with intelligent machine learning driven decision support, further increasing productivity. This is a game changer, and we can’t wait for our customers to experience the next generation of IT automation.”

The platform includes significant enhancements, including an architecture redesign to support hybrid deployments across on-premise, private and public cloud environments. It also enriches product security in areas such as message encryption across internal and external networks, and presents a refreshed user interface.

The next generation Ayehu IT automation and orchestration platform features:

  • SaaS Ready – Ideal for hybrid deployments, Ayehu supports multi-tenant, network encryption, OAuth2 authentication, and internal security improvementsHigh Availability and Scalability – Ayehu easily scales to support organizations with a high volume of incidents, and safe guards against a single-point-of-failure
  • Machine Learning Driven Support Decisions — Ayehu provides decision support via prompts to optimize workflows and dynamically creates rule-based recommendations, insights and correlations
  • Workflow Version Control – Ayehu is the first IT automation and orchestration platform to provide version control on workflows, allowing users to rollback changes and review, compare or revert workflows
  • Tagging and Labeling – Ayehu users can associate workflows with keywords through tags to quickly search and return commonly used workflows

Ayehu acts as a force multiplier, driving efficiency through a simple and powerful IT automation and orchestration platform. Ayehu helps enterprises save time on manual and repetitive tasks, accelerate mean time to resolution (MTTR), and maintain greater control over IT infrastructure. With Ayehu, IT and security operations teams can fully- or semi-automate the manual response of an experienced IT or security operator/analyst, including complex tasks across multiple, disparate systems. Ayehu’s response time is instant and automatic, executing pre-configured instructions without any programming required, helping to resolve virtually any alert, incident or crisis.

Ayehu will provide live demonstrations of its next generation platform at RSA Conference 2017 (San Francisco, Moscone Center, February 13 -17) in its booth # 4914 (North Expo Hall). The platform is currently in beta and will be generally available later this year.

Live Webinar: How to Detect and Resolve Today’s High-Profile Threats

Tuesday, January 31, 12:00pm EST / 9:00am PST

One only needs to read the daily news headlines to recognize how big of a threat cyber-crime has become. These days, businesses of every size and industry and from all over the globe are vulnerable to ransomware and other malicious cyber-attacks, placing them at risk of both financial as well as reputational damage. And with an ever-increasing volume of complex cybersecurity incidents and dwindling resources, SOC teams are more overwhelmed than ever before.

What’s the solution?

In order to adequately defend against the onslaught of attacks and handle incidents in real time, IT must strike an ideal balance between detection and remediation of both known and unknown threats.

A great example of this type of power-packed combination is the integration of OPSWAT threat detection and Ayehu automated incident response and remediation platform. And now, you can see this dynamic duo in action by attending this live webinar.

On Tuesday, January 31, 12:00pm EST / 9:00am PST, join security experts from OPSWAT and Ayehu as we discuss how to detect and resolve today’s high-profile threats.

In this live online presentation, you’ll learn:

  • Why and how today’s high-profile threats have evolved and expanded
  • Key methods to identify and verify attacks in your environment and across disparate systems, including scanning anti-malware engines, automating routine tasks, and rapidly containing, remediating, and recovering from attacks
  • How combining technology from OPSWAT and Ayehu can bridge the gap between detecting and resolving threats

Does the topic of cybersecurity keep you up at night? Are you and your team tired of fighting an uphill battle to keep networks, applications and sensitive data secure and safely out of the hands of malicious hackers? If so, then this webinar is a MUST-attend!

But hurry….seats are limited and we fully expect that this highly-anticipated webinar will fill up quickly.

Ms. Levinson brings more than 25 years of corporate leadership experience to Ayehu’s Board, having led all aspects of enterprise information technology and business process transformation for both B2B and B2C enterprises during her career.

Ayehu to Present as Virtual SOC Operator at FOCUS Conference – Join Us!

Intel Security’s 9th annual FOCUS conference, scheduled to be held November 1 – November 3, 2016 at ARIA Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, is considered a “must-attend” event for modern IT security professionals. The 3-day event will bring together leading security specialists—from C-level executives, directors, and mid-managers to product developers and front-line IT staff—to exchange ideas, gain valuable knowledge to implement their security initiatives and share real-world experiences.

Ayehu is excited to be joining these elite security field representatives (and a few high-profile celebrities, from what we hear), where we will be presenting live demonstrations of eyeShare integration with Intel Security. The demos will provide real-time insight into how cyber security automation and orchestration technology can be used to create a closed-loop process that accelerates incident management and remediation. The result is a significant improvement in problem resolution time, an increase in service availability, and improved overall IT operational efficiency.

eyeShare’s integration with Intel McAfee ESM accelerates cyber security incident response to SIEM alerts by using advanced automation.  Together, these best-of-breed tools provide an enterprise-grade solution to easily automate and streamline security policy tasks (playbooks) executed in response to ESM-generated alerts.  The result is immediate and reliable defense against detected threats that helps mitigate damage from cyber security breaches, and serves as a force multiplier for overwhelmed NOC & SOC teams.

The Ayehu team will be presenting from booth #200 and would like to invite anyone who is attending to stop by and visit with us. For more information on our involvement and how you can connect with us and book your own demo, please click here.

We’ll also be Tweeting updates live using the hashtag #FOCUS16, so be sure to follow along and join the conversation. Hope to see you there!
