E8 Security Joins Intel Security Innovation Alliance

Faster Identification and Response to Insider Threats, and Increased Return on Existing Security Investment

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - E8 Security, an innovator in behavioral intelligence for cybersecurity, today announced that it has joined the Intel Security Innovation Alliance™ partner program. As part of the alliance, E8 Security plans to integrate its user and entity behavioral analytics (UEBA) solution with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM). These tightly integrated solutions will enable customers to gain comprehensive visibility into threats by examining data from a multitude of sources, reducing the time it takes to derive value.

E8 Security's Behavioral Intelligence Platform uses machine learning and analytics technology to identify insider threats in the enterprise. It bridges the operational and knowledge gaps that exist in legacy security tools through a set of smart algorithms that identify every entity, from users devices and endpoints, as well as malicious behaviors, helping security operations teams to prioritize the riskiest threats. By combining the scale of big data, the power of behavioral analytics and data from existing security assets, the E8 Security Behavioral Intelligence Platform identifies hidden threats in the network and helps to resolve them faster.

Customers using E8 Security's solution and McAfee ESM will be able to easily share data between systems. The rich data set collected by McAfee ESM, along with endpoint, network and authentication data gathered from other sources, provides the basis for E8 Security's solution to identify all entities and profile their behaviors. The intelligence and comprehensive context generated by E8 Security can be fed to McAfee ESM for investigation of security incidents, rapid alert prioritization and threat response. For existing McAfee ESM customers, this provides faster time to value and improves the efficacy of the existing security information event management.

"A key goal behind the Intel Security Innovation Alliance program is to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplify the integration of those products with complex customer environments," said D.J. Long, Sr. Director of Security Innovation Alliance at Intel Security. "We're thrilled to see E8 Security leverage Intel Security's investment in its risk management platform and extend this value to E8 Security's customers."

"E8 Security's participation in the Intel Security Innovation Alliance further strengthens E8 Security's partner ecosystem. Ensuring seamless interoperability with Intel Security solutions enhances our ability to deliver value to our customers almost immediately," said Matt Jones, chief executive officer of E8 Security. "The approach of certifying integration ensures that customers do not have to invest time and resources in custom development or complex deployments. With E8 Security's Behavioral Intelligence platform, not only is the deployment time shortened, but the time to value is greatly accelerated."

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.
