CANBERRA, Australia, July 1 (UPI) -- A system to detect targeted cyberattacks against businesses has been launched in Australia by BAE Systems Deltica.

Deltica's Advanced Threat Detection service adopts unique behavioral monitoring and analytics technology to detect sophisticated threats and analyze malicious activity.

It addition to early warning of malicious activity, the service provides businesses with advice on response to cyberattacks and how to mitigate any impact.

"Organized criminal gangs, unscrupulous competitors and foreign nations are looking to exploit businesses by gaining access to data through targeted cyberattacks," said Richard Watson, the company's managing director for the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions.

"These groups are sophisticated, well-funded and cleverly organized. The attacks are tailored to a company's systems and designed to go undetected by avoiding the known attack signatures that conventional defenses look for. Our team of expert cyber analysts can work with businesses and government to identify and respond to risks before they are able to impact."

Deltica said the service is part of its managed security suite of offerings.
