Announcing Interset 5: More Data, More Use Cases


What’s one of the greatest challenges analysts face while considering security platforms? The answer tends to be pretty simple: They need something fast, data-hungry, and fine-tuned. That’s why, while architecting Interset 5, we asked ourselves how we can make threat detection even swifter by proactively addressing an analyst’s unique business-security needs. Our answer is this security-analytics platform that doesn’t break a sweat in the face of terabytes of data or new use cases.

Aggressively expanding on traditional User Behavior Analytics coverage, Interset 5 comes with new data-source integrations and more than 100 new advanced analytic models. This is the start of a new paradigm for our customers, who can now look beyond insider and cyber-threat detection to different threat surfaces, such as fraud and supply-chain use cases. It’s about, says Interset CTO Stephan Jou, “leveraging our big-data platform and extensible advanced-analytics engine to rapidly cover new use cases with out-of-the-box machine-learning models and data connectors.”

In other words: It does the predictive thinking for you to make your security team that much smarter and more efficient.

From an analyst’s day-to-day perspective, we redesigned our user interface (above), optimizing it for quick detection and reaction. It prioritizes threats and delivers contextually rich views that reveal the who-what-where-when behind even the most sophisticated breaches. By connecting these dots, Interset is making false positives and belabored forensics a thing of the past. Security managers get a superior ROI and lower TCO, while increasing operational success.
