Interset to showcase advanced behavioral analytics for enhanced detection of cyber & insider attacks at Gartner Security & Risk Summit

Interset will showcase the latest version of its Advanced Threat Detection Platform at the annual Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit June 8-11 in National Harbor, MD.

A winner of the annual Security Innovation Network™ (SINET) 16 Innovators competition sponsored by the Dept. of Homeland Security, Interset will showcase key new capabilities of Interset 3, its highly intelligent and accurate insider and targeted outsider threat detection solution.

Interset’s Behavioral Analytics goes beyond simple “User Behavior Analytics” by base-lining and scoring additional entities including machines, applications, files and projects. Interset continually tracks the relationships between all of these entities offering greater coverage, accuracy and context of impending risks and threats.

Interset’s data collection capabilities also surpass first generation user behavioral analytics SIEM feed restrictions by adding lightweight sensors and connectors that collect metadata events from endpoints, directories and IP repositories including PLM, SCM and content management tools like SharePoint. Rounded out by an intuitive graphical interface and plain language reporting, it is easy to see why Interset 3 stands apart from first generation user behavioral analytics tools.

Customers who have implemented Interset cite its ability to rapidly surface anomalous activities, apply accurate risk scoring and deliver the contextual information needed to mitigate the threat as the main reasons for their deployment decision.

With Interset, security practitioners are alerted to and can quickly uncover the specific information needed to stop sophisticated attacks such as:

  • When an employee may be planning to leave and if that employee is stealing sensitive data
  • When more than one employee is involved or where employees are knowingly staying below policy based threshold alert levels
  • Where improper and high risk behaviors are carried out by IT Admins and other privileged users — activities that other tools cannot see
  • When accounts have been taken over by malware and are moving to stage and exfiltrate critical IP
  • Which users, projects and data stores are most at risk — even indicating where mid and late stages of an attack comprise are occurring

Check out Interset’s new video interview with CTO Stephan Jou, recently a guest expert on Peerlyst Community TV, as he explains how behavior analytics, heuristics and machine learning provide an important new set of technology tools for cybersecurity professionals who want to better detect unusual and suspicious behaviors that can lead to sensitive data theft (https://www.interset.com/info-center/video/).
