Fortscale Unveils Presidio: the Industry’s First Embedded User and Entity Behavior Analytics Engine

Presidio Extends Fortscale’s Award-Winning Behavior Analytics to Natively Expand Capabilities of Existing Security Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Fortscale Security Ltd., the innovator in machine learning-based user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for security, today introduced Fortscale Presidio™, the industry’s first embedded UEBA engine that natively expands capabilities of existing security solutions. The unveiling comes as the company secures $7M in its latest funding round, led by Evolution Equity Partners and Valor Capital Group.

“Because Presidio is natively embedded in their current security infrastructure, end users get the full benefit of the context and insights that behavioral analytics provide, without having to deploy and manage another product.”

Presidio leverages the predictive, big data analytics and machine-learning engine of Fortscale’s award-winning UEBA platform for insider threat detection to enable security vendors to quickly and simply incorporate advanced behavioral analytics into their security platforms. Presidio adds native risk-based intelligence on the activity of users and entities within a company’s environment to enhance analysis and security enforcement – ultimately improving the performance and effectiveness of the overall security infrastructure.

“Fortscale Presidio is a game changer, as it allows other security solutions to leverage, for the first time, an advanced analytics engine to improve their ability to identify insider threats and enhance their mitigation capabilities with behavior-based risks and alerts,” said Idan Tendler, founder and CEO, Fortscale. “Because Presidio is natively embedded in their current security infrastructure, end users get the full benefit of the context and insights that behavioral analytics provide, without having to deploy and manage another product.”

Fortscale Presidio instantly upgrades a company’s security infrastructure and products with machine-learning analytics. “It can instantly add artificial intelligence to security products, helping to identify the most important insights from enormous volumes of data,” added Tendler. Presidio can be integrated into on-premise security products or as a UEBAaaS in cloud products, providing customizable and unique data models, behavioral capabilities and application program interfaces (APIs) designed to make integration with security infrastructure solutions, such as SIEM, EDR, EPP, CASB, DLP, and IAM, simple and effective.

“As a global operation, we needed a product that could scale in size and in the kinds of data that we collect and profile,” said Tony Velleca, CEO of CYBERPROOF, a UST Global company and Fortscale partner. “The Presidio solution does an extremely good job of making it easy for cyber analysts to see who to pay attention to, to drill down quickly on the anomalies, and to even track the progress of an investigation.”

Presidio features include:

  • Enhanced accuracy in pinpointing the most meaningful threats – Presidio adds risk-based anomalous behavior to systems that are usually rule-based and heuristic-based.
  • Expanded visibility into user behaviors and risks – Presidio goes beyond traditional security solutions that focus on device and machine activity to offer unprecedented visibility into user-related activity and threats.
  • Identification of new user-related threats by all security solutions – Presidio provides unparalleled insight into risky activities that indicate insider threats or compromised users across an enterprise’s entire security infrastructure.
  • Proprietary UEBA engine – Presidio enables security vendors to add best-in-breed behavioral analytics, without having to build, manage or maintain the capabilities themselves. Fortscale was named a 2016 Gartner “Cool Vendor” for UEBA.

By adding much needed user and entity visibility and analysis, Fortscale Presidio strengthens a company’s security stance and maximizes their security investment by improving the security infrastructure’s ability to uncover insider threats and make better, risk-based decisions that minimize the impact of attacks in the environment.
