S2 Grupo and the National Cryptology Center, present CARMEN 3.0, the solution to detecting advanced cyberattacks developed using 100% national technology
S2 Grupo, a Spanish company specialized in cybersecurity, announced the availability of the 3.0 version of CARMEN, the first security solution developed with 100% Spanish technology capable of detecting next generation attacks, also known as APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats), one of the greatest dangers to growth around today.
The announcement was made at the VIII STIC CCN-CERT Workshops, organized by the CCN in Madrid last 10th and 11th December to “create a solid cybersecurity culture and provide an answer to the multiple challenges facing cybersecurity and such significant sectors as aerospace, power, government, oil, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, technology or finance”.
The STIC Workshops have become the most relevant cybersecurity event in Spain, putting the greatest cybersecurity experts in touch with heads of security from companies and public organisms so as to show and discuss the latest trends and solutions in this field.
S2 Grupo, one of the main sponsors of the event, as well as presenting CARMEN 3.0 and leading several speeches on how next generation attacks work, used the opportunity to conduct several simulations of real attacks on critical infrastructures.
CARMEN, a solution developed by S2 Grupo and the CCN, has become the only Spanish technology capable of facing APTs, an attack capacity that introduces itself into targeted networks and systems using sophisticated malware. This malware can stay hidden over long periods of time undetected by traditional security tools – antivirus, firewalls, etc.-, and extracting the desired information without leaving a
CARMEN is able to analyze the different working parameters in an organism or corporation’s network, detecting anomalies at different levels in the applications and tools users employ from them and alerting information security and protection heads.
