Jonathan Rees, CEO of Nuix EMEA, appropriately describes the intensity of modern-day threats to our data by stating, “Hardly a day goes by without news of a massive data breach, an embarrassing leak of valuable or damaging information, a regulatory investigation into corporate wrongdoing, or the filing of a high-profile lawsuit.”
According to a Ponemon Institute survey conducted last year, 76 percent of surveyed IT practitioners in the United States and Europe said their organization had suffered the loss of important data within the last two years. While multiple factors contribute to data loss, a primary cause is often lack of visibility into digital information. Each year, organizations store important data in various formats at various locations, without having an idea of who has access to it, and how it is protected, leaving the organization vulnerable.
Nuix paints a clear picture of an organization’s data, enabling it to regain control and build a robust security posture with strong security policies, educational programs, and effective technology, making it a much harder target for attackers.
The company offers solutions built on its patented Nuix Engine, engineered to break through all forms of complex data and pinpoint the critical information organizations need to anticipate, detect, and act on cybersecurity, risk, and compliance threats. The Nuix Engine transforms more than 1,000 file types and formats into searchable text and metadata at massive speed and scale providing insights into a breadth and depth of data unmatched by other technologies.
Nuix continually innovates to solve today’s complex cybersecurity-related challenges and help clients anticipate what’s next
Nuix serves as a single platform to collect, process, search, and review disparate data from mobile devices, computers, email, and many other data sources concurrently while also identifying the hidden connections between people, objects, locations, and events to provide customers with real-time clarity, control, and efficiency.
The company brings capabilities that many in the industry fail to possess, and that is how Nuix has garnered a vast client base comprising of major financial regulators, law enforcement agencies, intelligence agencies, the United Nations, and leading litigation support vendors. One of these is a pharmaceuticals manufacturer who turned to Nuix for help to establish an insider threat program and investigate the facts after an employee was stopped at an airport attempting to transport trade secrets out of the country. Nuix helped boost the company’s security posture by developing a non-intrusive and largely automated threat program that could detect gross violations of company policy without effecting productivity and morale.
They used Nuix Adaptive Security to monitor and alert on high risk and anomalous actions whilst their human resources and cybersecurity teams collaborated using Nuix Analytics & Intelligence to monitor internal HR records and correlate them with public records for bankruptcies, divorces, and other legal proceedings. They also correlated the employee’s use of social media sites and phone calls with suspect organizations and risky behaviour. With clear insight into the data, the client concluded that a rogue employee was working alone and it effectively implemented a new security framework to anticipate future threats.
Nuix continually innovates to solve complex security challenges and helps its customers anticipate what’s next. The company has grown significantly from having a customer base in Australia to a global marketplace with 1,800 customers in over 70 countries including major financial regulators, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and leading litigation support vendors. Its partner network is also instrumental in Nuix’s success. “Key to our ongoing growth in existing and new markets such as Germany, Japan, and the Middle East is our network of partners across 60 countries who help our customers solve their complex data problems using the Nuix platform,” concludes Rees.
