Through this partnership, USA is able to supply corporate security directors, legal personnel, and law enforcement officials with digital security solutions to tackle consistently changing methods of online crime.

USA, as a customer service-oriented organization, is consistently seeking ways to match client demand. With AccessData's investigative resources, clients can now effectively integrate their physical security service with their digital safeguards.

AccessData, innovator of CIRT (Cyber Intelligence and Response Technology) provides remote endpoint and network forensics, malware triage, monitoring and automated response and remediation. The CIRT platform allows organizations to easily detect and investigate security breaches, fraud and intellectual property theft. It streamlines digital investigations of any kind. Developed by the digital forensics experts, this forensic collection and surveillance technology targets and compiles the data necessary to build a strong, comprehensive analysis.

CIRT also extends the functionality of the SIEM (security information and event management) technologies by providing three key functions. First, it delivers holistic rapid response by integrating the critical capabilities required for comprehensive root cause analysis, which are full packet capture network forensics, advanced computer forensics (hard drive, memory and peripherals), malware triage and enterprise-wide auditing for compromise assessment. Second, CIRT enables real-time collaboration among all security and response teams; and third, it provides automated batch remediation, so organizations are able to eradicate threats not just contain them.
