There’s been a lot of talk about behavioral analytics for security on the Internet and at recent security conferences, like RSA. I can guarantee you the first question out of most peoples’ mouths when they happen across this topic is:
“What is behavioral analytics?”
For some vendors, it simply means monitoring credentials and the way they’re used in order to detect insider threats. But, like any good security analyst knows, misused credentials are only one stop on the road to compromise.
At E8, we believe behavioral analytics is capable of providing insight into every stage of the attack lifecycle, across your network, users, and endpoints — including IoT. This is why we’ve built a behavioral analytics platform that frees security analysts from the drudgery of translating big data into something useful.
The E8 Security Fusion Platform automatically learns normal user and device behaviors to discover malicious activity unknown to security analysts (and possibly, the rest of the world) without any of the manual “discovery” work. The result is improved alert quality and accelerated investigations, making security operations teams more effective — giving them to opportunity to be the threat-squashing rock stars they truly are.
Oh yeah? Prove it.
The E8 team has been busy educating people we meet about the how the digital misbehaviors of users and devices on their networks can indicate active threats and misdeeds. E8 Fusion detects all kinds of threat behaviors — not just those associated with credential misuse.
As we all know, seeing is believing. But the work involved, not just in doing a proof-of-concept (POC), but in researching vendors to even get to the point where a POC makes sense, can be intense.
This is why we launched our Joyride program this week.
Joyride is a hands-off free trial where we do all the heavy lifting, so you can quickly visualize and understand how your security operations team can utilize the insight E8’s behavioral analytics platform provides in a real-world environment.
We’ll run Fusion’s machine learning models on a sample of your proxy logs, and show you what a true behavioral analytics platform can do. It’s easy. It’s quick and it’s non-committal — you won’t need to install or configure anything. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the insight.
