Interset Signs Sienna to Resell First User and Entity Behavior Analytics as Managed Cloud Service

Security Service Will Rapidly Detect and Surface Insider Threats, Compromised Accounts, Malicious Activities Related to Targeted Attacks

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2015) - Security behavior analytics innovator Interset has announced that data security solutions provider Sienna Group has joined its value-added reseller program and is building the first cloud-based managed service security offering based on the Interset platform. Founded by security industry veteran John Ford, Sienna Group specializes in data-centric security solutions for healthcare, financial, government, retail, and technology sectors.

Interset provides a "user and entity behavior analytics" (UEBA) solution that makes it easier for any organization to gain visibility into the behaviors of users, accounts, machines, applications, files, and other digital assets in order to find offending actors and intruders. Interset stands out for its ability to:

  • Connect and aggregate the broadest range of data sources -- endpoints, directories, IP repositories, such as PLM, SCM, and content management tools like SharePoint -- into analytic models, thereby increasing accuracy and timeliness of detection
  • employ multiple, probabilistic math models to more accurately surface and alert on persons, machines, repositories, and files at risk or under threat
  • clearly deliver a prioritized and contextually rich view of the entities and events related to risks and threats so security teams understand which events represent the greatest risk and what to do to stop them before data is lost.

In addition to re-selling the Interset platform, Sienna Group is building a managed service solution to deliver best-of-breed UEBA security services together with real-time monitoring and other security services built around the Interset platform.

"Many companies, especially those with small security teams, are spending inordinate amounts of time and budget sorting through thousands of potential incidents in an attempt to determine what is an actual risk or threat and what is noise or a false positive," said Sienna Group's Ford. "With Interset's approach to behavior analytics, intelligence and automation are used to display a prioritized list of the riskiest events, greatly reducing the noise and false positive problem while enhancing existing security infrastructure and investments. By combining our new service-based offering and this next-generation intelligence and automation technology with the threat detection and response process of our clients we can offer a superior threat detection and response service that is faster to value and reduces hardware and management costs." 

According to Interset CEO Dale Quayle, "We're very impressed with Sienna Group's highly focused approach to uniting existing processes and technologies with forward-thinking cyber security programs and customized governance and compliance programs. As an innovator and first-to-market provider with managed services based on our UEBA platform, Sienna Group is a very exciting company and one we are pleased to welcome to the Interset Partner Program."

Interset is expanding its reseller channel to extend its geographic reach and security expertise. The Interset solution offers exciting new opportunities combined with channel lead generation activities and aggressive margins to offer channel partners a compelling business opportunity.
