What UEBA Stands For (And a 5-Minute UEBA Primer)
UEBA stands for User and Entity Behavior Analytics. We explain every word of the acronym and provide a 5-minute primer with everything you need to know about UEBA.
User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) is the application of machine learning and security research to determine when users or entities are acting in unusual and risky ways.
Good UEBA doesn’t require static, predefined rules to detect threats, and can therefore evolve along with new techniques enabling your SIEM to be more efficient and effective.
How will organizations spend their increased cybersecurity budgets? Most need to invest in new technology to achieve effective network security and incident response (IR). A cybersecurity technology that’s seeing significant growth, UEBA streamlines overall security operations while alleviating the ever-increasing pressures on teams that stem from chronic cybersecurity issues.
Frequently cyber threats and incidents go undetected and unreported—sometimes for years. What is known is that it’s likely your organization faces possible exposure to insider threats—and it’s probably larger than what you’ve anticipated.
Ransomware attacks often target victims with high-value, unstructured data. In this case it was the PGA Championship and Ryder Cup files consisting of marketing materials such as PGA banners, logos, and signage, which are the type of files that organizations frequently don’t back up properly.
Quickly get up to speed on the emerging field of User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) and how information security organizations are utilizing it: Security teams are increasingly shifting towards tying technologies like UEBA to their conventional SIEMs and other legacy prevention systems.
