Interset named a top emerging cybersecurity company of 2014 by Security Innovators Network (SINET)

Security innovator Interset has been selected a winner of the annual Security Innovation Network™ (SINET) 16 Innovators competition, a prestigious technical award for cutting-edge technology companies addressing cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. The competition is supported by the Department of Homeland Security, Science & Technology Directorate. Interset was selected from a pool of 180 applicants worldwide and will showcase its highly intelligent and accurate enterprise threat detection solution at the SINET Showcase to be held Dec. 3–4 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Interset has developed a cutting edge approach to security behavior analytics using multi-level, predictive mathematical models and unsupervised machine learning integrated across a big data neural network. This approach reduces noise and removes false positives, while increasing accuracy and timeliness of threat detection. Unlike first generation analytics tools, Interset not only extracts metadata from security, network and SIEM products, but uses standalone, lightweight end point sensors and revolutionary enterprise layer application connectors to offer greater visibility into where high risk events occur. This combination of risk visibility and advanced math delivers early and accurate detection of high risk threats, insider attacks, compromised systems and account takeovers, coupled with actionable forensic data giving even small security teams the tools to stop data compromises.

“Organizations simply cannot protect the sensitive data within their businesses — headlines prove that almost every week. DLP and SIEM tools may detect evidence of an attack, but lack the intelligence to surface and connect that evidence, so it remains lost in the noise of thousands of alerts. Gateway and network systems detect only a limited threat surface, and when bypassed, offer no defense in depth across an organization,” said Interset CEO and President Dale Quayle. “By applying predictive math and the science of behavioral analytics to the events captured by these systems and our own specialized sensors, we capture more data and use computing intelligence to analyze, connect and surface actual attack events across an organization quickly and accurately. With big data, greater context is available so surfaced attack events include actionable forensic information. We’re very pleased to be recognized for our contribution in this important area.”
