Behavior Based Security Analytics

Predictive Security Analytics to Detect & Stop Unknown Threats

Request a Demo

The key to predicting threats, especially unknown threats, is to monitor user and entity behavior – to recognize when that behavior starts being anomalous. Gurucul’s Behavior Based Security Analytics platform ingests massive amounts of data and provides insight into what’s going on with users and entities in real-time. The output of security analytics is a single unified risk score for every user and entity. It is this risk score that provides actionable intelligence on potential risky situations so organizations can take corrective action.

Gurucul User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) provides real-time risk prioritized alerts for incident analysis. The dynamic risk scores can be used to trigger automated risk-response workflow for enterprise and cloud. Gurucul UEBA use cases include:

✔  Insider Threat Detection and Deterrence

✔ Account Compromise, Hijacking and Sharing

✔ Privileged Access Abuse

✔ Data Exfiltration, DLP and IP Protection

✔ Trusted Host and Entity Compromise

✔ Cyber Fraud Detection and Deterrence

Gurucul UEBA offers numerous competitive advantages ideal for enterprise deployments, including:

Open Analytics: Gurucul shows you exactly how our machine learning models work and how risk scores are calculated. Other UEBA vendors have proprietary “black box” analytics completely hidden from view. Results have to be taken on faith since nobody knows how the answers are obtained, or if the results are valid.

Custom Machine Learning Models: With Gurucul, you can easily create your own machine learning models and customize ours. Further, your data scientists can leverage our Software Development Kit to build their own machine learning models and import them into Gurucul UEBA. No other vendor has this capability.

Open Choice of Big Data: Choosing the right UEBA big data lake can make or break your ROI. Gurucul has de-coupled our analytics from the data lake so you can run Gurucul UEBA on your choice of big data platform. If you don’t have a data lake, we’ll give you Hadoop for free. Other UEBA vendors require you use their version of their data lake. You don’t have a choice. If you have your own data lake, you still have to install their version of your data lake because it’s been heavily customized.

Unlimited Data Ingestion: UEBA draws from a broad range of data sources to provide holistic monitoring and behavior analytics for a risk-based approach. Gurucul UEBA takes unlimited data feeds from structured and unstructured security sources – SIEMs, firewalls, IAM systems, NetFlow, end points, and more. It can also gather context from your business applications – SAP, EPIC, Salesforce or even proprietary applications on virtually any platform.

Gurucul’s Behavior Based Security Analytics delivers actionable intelligence with low false positives. Get immediate results without writing queries, rules or signatures.

Gurucul really stood out because the analytics engine was the most powerful. The machine learning algorithms are the strongest. We saw results very, very quickly.

– William Scandrett, CISO, Allina Health

Gurucul is changing the way enterprises protect themselves against insider threats, fraud, account compromise and data exfiltration in both on-premises and cloud environments. The company’s Behavior Based Security Analytics and Intelligence platform uses machine learning and predictive anomaly detection algorithms to reduce the attack surface for accounts, and to eliminate unnecessary access rights and privileges.
