Palo Alto, CA, Dec. 08, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PARC, a Xerox company, today announced it has secured funding under a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program to research complex distributed computing environments to expose and potentially stop advanced cyber adversaries (aka Advanced Persistent Threats, or APTs).PARC is part of a team led by Galois, Inc, that also includes University of Edinburgh, and Oregon State University. The team will offer A Diagnostics Approach for Persistent Threat detection (ADAPT) that enables stakeholders to better understand activities in their networks and computers by identifying subtle causal chains that represent malicious behavior and localize the root of such behavior in order to make recommendations on how to mitigate those effects.The contract is from DARPA’s Transparent Computing (TC) program, which aims to make currently opaque…
