Cybersecurity company Kaspersky recently launched a software solution called Kaspersky Unified Monitoring and Analysis Platform (KUMA). This solution will help Filipino businesses and organizations stay safe in the digital world while embracing digitalization. 

It includes features that monitor and manage security information and events, making it easier for businesses to stay secure while going digital.

KUMA is a unified console for monitoring and analyzing information security incidents. The fundamental program includes the following components:

  •  One or more Collectors that receive messages from event sources and parse, normalize, and, if required, filter and/or aggregate them.
  •  A Correlator that analyzes normalized events received from Collectors, performs the necessary actions with active lists, and creates alerts by the correlation rules.
  • The Core includes a graphical interface to monitor and manage the settings of system components.
  •  The Storage, which contains normalized events and registered incidents.

Advantages of KUMA include:

  • High performance: 300k+ EPS (events per second) per KUMA instance
  • Low system requirements: Virtual or physical environment and up to 10k EPS AiO (all in one) on one virtual server
  • Scalability: Flexible microservice architecture with HA support for each component
  • Unified web console interface: Single, fully multi-tenancy UI console for everything
  • Out-of-the-box integration: With third-party products and Kaspersky solutions
  • Low entry threshold: Does not require knowledge of special query languages or writing rules

“When it comes to cybersecurity, even the most secure operating systems can be compromised. As APT actors are constantly evolving their tactics and searching for new weaknesses to exploit, businesses must prioritize security of their systems. This involves providing employees and technical teams with the latest tools to effectively recognize and defend against potential threats as well as timely remediation of incidents,” said Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky.

According to a recent report by Kaspersky, a cybersecurity company, Southeast Asia, including the Philippines, will continue to experience problems like financial service disruptions, website defacements, and DDoS attacks in the next few years. These issues threaten the security of the region’s online transactions and web browsing.

Individuals and organizations must prioritize robust cybersecurity strategies to protect their digital assets. Philippine businesses in industries such as utilities, finance, and healthcare that handle sensitive data must be cautious to protect their clients’ information from cyber threats. One tool that can help with this is the Kaspersky Unified Monitoring and Analysis Platform (KUMA).
