Bay Dynamics and Skyhigh Networks Unite to Uncover Risky Behaviors of Business Cloud Users

Partnership Helps Businesses Identify How Insiders Are Using Cloud-Based Applications So That They Can Minimize Risk of a Data Breach

SAN FRANCISCO,CA--(Marketwired - November 03, 2015) - Bay Dynamics® and Skyhigh Networks announced today a new partnership to help businesses identify how their insiders -- including employees and third party vendors -- are using cloud-based services and remediate any risky behaviors that may lead to a data breach.

As part of its Risk Fabric® platform, Bay Dynamics will assemble and correlate anomalous Web activity and policy data from Skyhigh's Cloud Usage Analytics along with other existing security tools to provide actionable insights into cybersecurity blind spots. The partnership will help businesses identify individuals who are using cloud services insecurely such as logging into cloud services they would not typically access, exfiltrating private corporate data from cloud applications and other behaviors that may lead to a breach. Bay Dynamics and Skyhigh Networks will also help businesses prioritize their risks so that they know what to respond to first and how they can minimize their chances of getting breached.

"The average organization experiences 9.3 insider threat incidents each month," said Kamal Shah, senior vice president of product and marketing at Skyhigh Networks. "By combining Skyhigh's Threat Intelligence capabilities with Bay Dynamics' predictive analytics, customers will be able to more accurately detect data exfiltration attempts from security breaches as well as from insider threats and compromised accounts.

Bay Dynamics has embraced many security partners during the past few years to help businesses pinpoint and take action against the top threats and vulnerabilities that may lead to a data breach. Some of the company's partners include Symantec, FireEye, Qualys, HP, Microsoft and CA Technologies. Information from partners' security tools feeds into Bay Dynamics Risk Fabric platform which analyzes and correlates data surrounding user behaviors across insiders and third party vendors, the devices they use and vulnerable assets within the organization. The company then provides businesses with a complete picture of their riskiest users and most vulnerable critical assets, prioritizing which risks need remediation action first and what actions the appropriate parties should take.

"In today's criminal ecosystem, the bad guys are well organized and coordinated, working together to exploit businesses' weaknesses from every angle," said Ryan Stolte, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Bay Dynamics. "The cybersecurity community needs to similarly unite so that the criminals will fail. By building alliances with a cloud security powerhouse like Skyhigh Networks and other major security players, we are maximizing our ability to protect businesses from every angle -- on premise, in the cloud, at the endpoints, across assets and more."
