New Trends In Behavioral Analytics Discovered In Gartner Study – Charles Leaver

Written By Josh Linder And Presented By Ziften CEO Charles Leaver

The marketplace for enterprise behavioral analytics is developing – once again – to support the security use case. In the current Gartner User and Entity Behavior (UEBA) Trends Report, Ziften is thrilled to be listed as a “Vendor to Watch.” Our company believe that our recognized relationships with risk intelligence feeds and visualization tools shows our addition within this research study note.

In the UEBA Market Report, Analysts Eric Ahlm and Avivah Litan describe that there is a prospective convergence in the advanced threat and analytics markets. The idea of UEBA – which extends user behavioral analytics to now include companies, business processes, and autonomous devices such as the Internet of Things – needs deep understanding and the capability to react rapidly and efficiently.

At Ziften our recognized relationships with threat intelligence feeds and visualization tools reflects our inclusion within this research study note. Our platform provides threat detection across different behavior vectors, rather than taking a look at a single-threaded signature feed. With integrations to orchestration and response systems, Ziften uniquely couples signature-based and behavioral analysis, while bridging the gap from securing the endpoint to safeguarding the entity. Constant tracking from the endpoint – consisting of network flow – is crucial to understanding the complete risk landscape and important for a holistic security architecture.

We applaud Gartner on identifying four areas for security and analytic vendors to concentrate on: User Behavior, Host/App Habits, Network Behavior, and External Communications Habits. We are the only endpoint supplier – today – to monitor both network habits and external interactions habits. Ziften’s ZFLow ™ utilizes network telemetry to surpass the basic IPFIX flow data, and augment with Layer 4 and Layer 5 operating system and user behavior. Our threat intelligence integration – with Blue Coat, iSIGHT Partners, AlienVault and the National Vulnerability Database – is second to none. Furthermore, our unique relationship with ReversingLabs supplies binary analysis directly within the Ziften administration console.

Eventually, our continuous endpoint visibility service is pivotal in assisting to discover behavioral risks that are hard to correlate without making use of innovative analytics.
