27 Oct Niara Expands Security Analytics Platform with Enhanced User Behavior Analytics
Adds coverage of network packets and flows to deliver most comprehensive solution for cyber attack detection
Sunnyvale, CA – October 27, 2015 – Niara, a provider of security analytics for attack detection and incident response, today announced the latest release of its security analytics platform, which now provides user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) using network packet and flow data. Combined with its existing behavior analytics capabilities for log data, the Niara security analytics platform provides the most comprehensive solution for detecting cyber attacks inside an organization.
“Most analytics tools today only look at log data. While this is a critical part of identifying attacks on the inside, it’s only part of the puzzle,” said Sriram Ramachandran, CEO and co-founder of Niara. “To get the most accurate information for attack detection, you must be able to analyze relevant security data from any source, regardless of volume, including log, flow, packet and threat intelligence sources. Having this higher fidelity picture allows you to drastically reduce the volume of alerts that security analysts have to sort through and validate, making them quicker and much more effective.”
The range of behaviors profiled by Niara’s UEBA modules, including authentication, remote access, resource access, file, protocol, and peer-to-peer analytics, deliver a spectrum of analytics that enable Niara to not only detect anomalous behaviors, but more reliably attribute malicious intent to them.
Niara combines these analytics with deep forensics, integrating them into a single system that provides analysts with a closed loop workflow from detection to investigation to triage.
Niara integrates out-of-the-box with third-party security information and event management (SIEM) systems, such as Splunk and HP ArcSight, layering analytics-driven intelligence into SOC and analyst workflows for superior visibility into attacks. Deployable in the cloud or on-prem, the Niara platform enables security analysts to quickly and easily uncover and investigate suspicious activity, as well as conduct robust threat hunting activities, while maximizing the value of their existing security investments.
Niara’s security analytics platform automates the detection of cyber attacks inside an organization, acting as a force multiplier for security personnel. By applying advanced machine learning and forensics to data from the network and security infrastructure, Niara surfaces attacks that have evaded real-time defense systems. The platform discovers compromised users and malicious insiders, speeds threat hunting efforts and reduces the time for incident investigation and response by focusing security teams on the threats that matter. Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., the company is backed by NEA, Index Ventures, and Venrock. For more information, visit www.niara.com.
