Interset Named 2016 Innovative Security Analytics Company by SINET

Ottawa, ON, Sept. 19, 2016 – User Behavior Analytics (UBA) security leader Interset has been named to the list of most innovative cybersecurity companies of 2016 by SINET, an organization focused on advancing cybersecurity innovation through public-private collaboration. The competition is supported by the Department of Homeland Security, Science and Technology Directorate, and features presentation by the 16 selected companies at the annual SINET Showcase on Nov. 2 – 3, 2016, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Interset uses machine learning and advanced security analytics to detect cyber and insider attacks, operating on a big data platform on-premise or in the cloud. By surfacing attacks quickly and accurately with significant incident context, Interset helps security teams stop attacks before data is stolen. Interset prevents theft of sensitive data by offering greater visibility into systems where attacks occur, as well as advanced correlation and entity level analytics to increase accuracy and speed of detection. With risk scoring prioritization, out of the box analytic models, clear and concise plain language user interfaces, and an integrated, incident response workflow engine and open API, Interset makes operationalizing a security analytics system simple and effective.

“Interset is a security analytics platform that can begin working immediately within a big data infrastructure or through a low-cost cloud option,” said Interset founder and CTO Stephan Jou. “We’re thrilled to be recognized for the second time by SINET to present to industry and government buyers at the prestigious SINET showcase.”
