Data Collection Appliance (DCA)
The DCA is a powerful yet lightweight security log and data aggregation system. Deployed as a virtual or physical appliance, on premise or in the cloud, it receives any sensor output (SysLog, SNMP Traps, etc.) you point at it (it can also go get info via web APIs). The DCA immediately starts organizing, compressing and encrypting this data in preparation for production of the Cyber Defense Matrix and upstream analytics using GreySpark's Business Intelligence analytics.
The DCA takes data from all security vendor systems, as well as log collectors and SIEMs
Security data aggregation and categorization is a difficult first step in any analytics process. The DCA streamlines and simplifies this step, where any network administrator can accomplish it in under an hour.
