Interset and FireEye Partner to Stop High-Risk Threats on Machines and Accounts Attacking Critical IP Inside the Enterprise

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2016) -  Interset, a leader in user and entity behavioral analytics, and FireEye®, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber-attacks, have announced a technology partnership and integration aimed at derailing high-risk attacks that have penetrated an enterprise. Initial integration between the Interset Advanced Threat Detection Platform and the FireEye Threat Analytics Platform (TAP) will correlate high-risk inside threats detected and surfaced by Interset with perimeter threats uncovered by FireEye TAP. The integration will deliver unprecedented insight into how enterprises are being attacked, what stage the attack is in, and the actions needed to stop an attack before it compromises data.

FireEye's TAP is a cloud-based solution that enables security teams to identify and effectively respond to cyber threats by layering enterprise-generated event data with real-time threat intelligence from FireEye. Interset's user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) not only detect and surface compromised accounts and machines through anomalous activities, but also understand what is happening in real-time once an attack is within a perimeter. Interset's prioritized, contextually rich views of entities and events related to risks and threats show security teams the stages of an attack as they unfold -- pointing out which events represent the greatest risk and presenting the information needed to stop them before data is lost.

Interset recently joined the FireEye Cyber Security Coalition (CSC) of integrated solutions that enhance the abilities of joint enterprise customers to better detect cyber attacks and improve their response capabilities through integrated solutions.

By integrating the high-risk threats detected and surfaced by Interset with the perimeter threats and threat intelligence from FireEye TAP, customers gain:

  • real-time and predictive visibility into attack vectors that are penetrating perimeter defenses in an attempt to gain control over machines and accounts
  • insight into which applications are being accessed and which machines, accounts, and critical data (such as intellectual property) are being targeted
  • a rich set of immediately available and correlated forensic data, reducing incident investigation time and cost

According to Ed Barry, VP, Cyber Security Coalition, FireEye, "With Interset integration into the FireEye platform, we offer customers greater insight into the behaviors of users and machines as they interact with applications and data, improving threat visibility over a greater surface -- particularly across the interior of an organization. These capabilities enhance organizations' abilities to see an attack as it happens and to stop it before it reaches the point of data-staging and exfiltration."

FireEye TAP focuses on threats attacking a perimeter and correlating them with the latest threat-intelligence feeds. According to Stephan Jou, CTO at Interset, "FireEye is moving very quickly to integrate with critical technologies in the security ecosystem. We're very pleased to be working together to deliver internal-enterprise threat predictive analytics correlated with perimeter threat data in the FireEye platform. With this partnership and integration effort, security teams will have an exceptional understanding about how attacks are manifesting within their organization before it is too late."
