Now that you have seen how it works, please see the features and benefits of Observable’s product line.


Product feature/capability Feature benefits

Deeper security intelligence

  • Dynamic Endpoint Modeling (DEM) is a managed service system comprising real-time network flow data, advanced security analytics, and big-data methods to continuously model all network devices.
  • Fully automated, real-time analysis of device level network traffic and patterns of communication.
  • Provides high fidelity of security alerts, enabling smarter security actions.

Cloud platform

  • Limitless scalability
Greatly simplified deployment:
  • No specialized hardware to purchase
  • No software agents to deploy
  • No expertise required

Managed services agility

  • Save time and money from constantly hiring more expertise while attempting to maintain a continuous vigil to ensure the integrity of systems and data.
  • Attain a stronger security posture with a managed automated platform to rapidly identify compromised and misused devices, enable facilitate faster remediation, and reduce the risk and cost associated with breaches.

Software-as-a-Service subscription

  • Simplify threat detection and response with an advanced security capability available as a SaaS subscription.
  • Cost-effective monthly and annual subscription plans.

Dynamic Endpoint Modeling (DEM)

  • Rapidly identifies early stage and hidden indicators of compromise
  • 100% functionality in encrypted environments; no “man in the middle"
  • No signature lists to update
  • No software agents to deploy
Provides continuous modeling across multiple dimensions of analysis:
  • Forecast: This dimension supports algorithms that predict device behavior based on past activities, and assesses observed behavior against these predictions.
  • Group: This dimension supports algorithms that assess devices for consistency in behavior by comparison to similar devices.
  • Role: This dimension supports algorithms that use the dynamically recognized role of the network device to detect activities inconsistent with that role.
  • Rule: This dimension supports algorithms that detect when endpoints are breaking established network rules including protocol/port correctness, profile characteristics, and blacklist communication.
  • Consistency: This dimension supports algorithms that recognize when a device has critically deviated from its past behavior – both in data transmission and access characteristics.
Threat detection:
  • Dynamically scalable analytics engine capable of analyzing along multiple threat dimensions.
Intelligent correlation:
  • Analytics engine analyzes endpoint model data in real-time, quickly identifying tangible behavioral events and deviations while eliminating background noise and innocuous events to significantly reduce the number of false positives.
  • Configurable alert sensitivity

  • Configurable geo blacklist violations
  • Easy accountability for known scanners and SNMP managers

OmniView Visibility

Unified functionality for multiple DEM sensors:
  • All traffic directions: 360 degrees of network coverage including north/ south and east/west traffic flows
  • All periods of time: Real-time through 6 months of history (standard); longer retention periods available
  • All devices: coverage across entire network of devices
  • All network perimeters

Robust system security

  • All persistent data stored in compressed, encrypted form in key-based systems
  • All network communications utilize strong encryption and two-factor authentication
