Niara’s security analytics platform leverages data from any data source within the network and security infrastructure. It applies comprehensive user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) modules to create highly accurate behavior profiles for users and hosts, all working in unison to more reliably link anomalies to malicious activity. The Niara security analytics platform provides complete visibility into attacks and risky behaviors inside an organization’s environment.
“Recognition by Info Security Products Guide further validates our approach to security, as prevention systems are failing to keep security breaches from happening,” said Sriram Ramachandran, CEO and co-founder of Niara. “As attackers become more sophisticated, security technology needs to evolve and provide even greater visibility into attacks inside an organization. We are honored to receive the gold award, acknowledging that Niara is one of the best security technologies and provides the most accurate context to security analysts for attack detection.”
Niara’s security analytics platform automates the detection of attacks that have bypassed an organization’s perimeter defenses and dramatically reduces the time and skill needed to investigate and respond to security events. The solution applies machine learning algorithms and forensics to data from the network and security infrastructure to detect compromised users, entities, and malicious insiders, speed threat hunting efforts, and reduce 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.
