Interset behavioral analytics deployed in a cloud-native environment reduces compute costs by 5X and greatly reduces admin overhead.

Ottawa, ON, Dec 4, 2018Interset, a security analytics company that uncovers insider threats, today announcedInterset 5.7 — the first iteration of its platform that offers cloud-native services to reduce complexity and cost of ownership to make threat detection available to organizations of any size or budget. This update gives customers unprecedented flexibility to wield Interset’s powerful, proven AI-driven user and entity behavioral analytics (UEBA) to quickly spot difficult-to-detect insider threats at an even lower cost.


Security budgets are heavily impacted by high-cost, resource-heavy cybersecurity ecosystems. According to Forrester Research, traditional approaches to cost management for security must shift to help organizations keep pace with new technologies and threats.¹ Business climates are changing, and “elastic scalable cloud offerings will free the business from technical constraints as a barrier to innovation,” says the firm.


Interset 5.7 gives managed security service providers (MSSPs), commercial users and OEM partners more control over compute resources and maintenance costs with cloud-native components that reduce the cost and complexity of the underlying server. This latest version of the Interset platform cuts down on costs with services designed specifically for the cloud and allows customers to scale up and down based on usage. Inteset 5.7 has been optimized for use in Amazon Web Services’ big data architecture, leveraging native cloud services including EMR, Lambda and Kinesis.


“Today’s complex threats are forcing companies to deploy equally complex cybersecurity ecosystems, resulting in infrastructure investments that not only drain resources but limit business agility and distract from other business operations,” said Mark Smialowicz, CEO at Interset. “Interset’s new cloud-native services bring our powerful AI and behavioral analytics to enterprise and mid-market organizations in an even more flexible, scalable and affordable way, allowing them to find threats in less time, at less cost.”


The latest update also brings greater extensibility that allows security team to easily integrate Interset into their existing ecosystems and do their jobs more quickly and effectively. With new features such as reporting microservice, customers can unlock the power of Interset’s unsupervised machine learning to find threats in customizable ways.
