“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”
– Henry Ford
We are seeing an interesting trend with large enterprises. Companies are telling us they are trying to build their own Security Analytics solutions for threat detection and risk intelligence. Why? There are many reasons, the most concerning of which is: they have had little to no success with products they purchased. But the right type of security analytics solution can make all the difference between identifying and stopping unknown threats, or ending up in the headlines as another data breach victim.
Build vs. Buy: Is There a Right Choice When It Comes to UEBA?
User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) is hard. It’s got a lot of moving parts. There are always new applications, data sources, use cases and entities to embrace. Companies who try to build their own UEBA are having problems with data quality, data ingestion, and data flow. They can’t capture all the data or make sense of it. And, they don’t have enough of the right data to train their models. Yes, it’s difficult. But Gurucul has managed to perfect it, and now we have the most machine learning models of any security analytics vendor. We have a reputation in the industry for delivering value quickly, at scale, on open choice of big data with transparent analytics.
