Interset applies behavioral analytic models and both unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning to dynamically detect, surface, and connect anomalous events that are the early stages of advanced attacks. Attacks are prioritized based on overall risk and presented in real time, without reliance on rules or thresholds.
"Our approach is unique in that it connects accounts, files, machines, and applications, tying them to risk scores that change with each new activity to surface attacks earlier and more accurately," said Interset CEO Dale Quayle. "We're pleased to be recognized for our unique approach and our proven ability to collect, process, and analyze very large amounts of data, and for our capacity to ensure ITAR compliance and protect IP from foreign-government espionage."
