We are excited to announce that we received another award for our User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA)! Info Security Products Guide named our Risk Fabric® analytics platform the 2018 Global Security Excellence Award Gold Winner for UEBA. Gold is the highest level a company can win in the UEBA category. The Global Security Excellence Awards recognizes cyber security and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

We developed Risk Fabric’s UEBA capabilities to help enterprise and government cyber analysts overwhelmed by the avalanche of threat alerts. Their current security solutions sit in siloes, pumping out data that only gives their perspective, and alerts that only add to the ever-growing pile. With limited resources, analysts are buried, unable to get through every alert, and missing critical threats in the middle of the pile when they should be at the top.

Risk Fabric’s UEBA capabilities enable organizations to prioritize the threats that if successful, would cause the most significant impact. Using proprietary algorithms as well as supervised and unsupervised machine learning, Risk Fabric detects and prioritizes malicious and non-malicious insider threats, and threats posed by compromised users. With Risk Fabric, organizations make the most of their existing cyber security investments because the platform brings together data from their siloed tools, connecting the dots to show cyber teams a prioritized view of threats and vulnerabilities in their environment. To reduce false positives, when Risk Fabric identifies an abnormal behavior, it compares that user's behavior to the person’s peer group and overall business unit. The platform also whitelists behaviors that are deemed business-as-usual so that those alerts do not show up again.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Award is the fourth UEBA-related award we have won in the last 6 months. The other three include:
