E8 Security Cited by Independent Research Firm for Ability to Discover Anomalous Behavior and Provide Threat Activity Insight

Behavioral Intelligence Innovator Included in 2016 "Vendor Landscape: Security User Behavior Analytics" Industry Analyst Report

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - July 19, 2016) - E8 Security, an innovator of behavioral intelligence for cybersecurity, was included as a profiled company in Forrester Research's July 2016 "Vendor Landscape: Security User Behavior Analytics (SUBA)" analyst report. The report states that SUBA solutions promise to provide security and risk professionals with a unified view of employee activity across networks, devices, and apps with the ability to detect suspicious activity -- quickly. The E8 Security Behavioral Intelligence Platform delivers on this analysis by providing user, endpoint and network SUBA capabilities the independent analyst firm outlines in the report.

In its analysis of companies that provide SUBA solutions, the Forrester report explains that E8 Security applies machine learning and multidimensional modeling that examines user, device, and network behaviors to identify anomalous activities. The report described the E8 Security Behavioral Intelligence Platform's capabilities, saying, "The solution analyzes and correlates behaviors and relationships and tracks attacker activities through various stages inside the kill chain. It can identify network anomalies such as command and control (C2) communications, lateral movement, user behavior anomalies such as compromised credential activity, and attacker persistence."

The report also states, "Detecting malicious or suspicious activity requires insight gleaned from a broad set of information sources, and action should be quick, before there's harm done to the business and its customers."

"The number of responsibilities security operations teams have is daunting," said Matt Jones, CEO, E8 Security. "We developed the E8 Security Behavioral Intelligence Platform to take some of the burden off these teams by providing them with an automated method to discover attacker behaviors and identify unknown indicators of compromise. Once accomplished, the platform prioritizes alerts based on the severity of the incident for security analysts to address."

"Speed means everything in cybersecurity, including time to deployment," said Ravi Devireddy, co-founder and CTO, E8 Security. "There is no custom development required for organizations to deploy the E8 Security Behavioral Analytics Platform, which integrates seamlessly with existing security infrastructure and analytics products an organization has in place. Within days, the platform can tell InfoSec professionals what's new, what's rare, and what's changed across their organization's entire network environment. "

About E8 Security
E8 Security is transforming security operations by dramatically reducing the amount of time it takes to identify unknown cyberthreats inside the network. Most organizations spend too much time, and money, investigating alerts that are scattered across multiple management systems, missing the patterns of compromise. Our behavioral intelligence platform can measure an organization's risk to a data breach and identify the early warnings signs when critical resources are being targeted. In short, we are helping security teams to detect, hunt, and respond by recognizing what is normal in their network so they can quickly respond to what is not. E8 Security is headquartered in Silicon Valley and is funded by March Capital Partners, Allegis Capital and The Hive.
