We are thrilled to announce the general availability of the latest version of Exabeam Advanced Analytics (AA), our User and Entity Behavior Analytics solution. Advanced Analytics version 3.3 helps our customers:
- Obtain deeper insight into user activity
- Streamline workflows across multiple Exabeam solutions
- Leverage their own data science algorithms for analytics
Exabeam Advanced Analytics Version 3.3 Key features
- Dynamic Peer Grouping – capability examines a user’s behavior compared to their active directory (AD) peers helps understand more complex anomalies and also reduces false positives.
- Native AA to IR Integration – Advanced Analytics can now seamlessly integrate with Exabeam Incident Responder (IR) whereby key session data can be pushed to IR automatically to create incidents for further investigations and remediation.
- Daily Activity Change – With a brand new Daily Activity Change detection algorithm, we apply data science techniques to look at incremental changes day to day based on changes in event types and volume.
- Personal Email Detection – A new data science approach in this release helps identify employees engaging in sensitive data exfiltration to personal email accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc. This algorithm goes beyond simple string matching by leveraging user activity and behavior to determine which email accounts belong to what users.
- Machine Learning SDK – The new Machine Learning SDK enables you to Bring Your Own Data Science, leverage the data sets within AA’s analytics engine and augment behavioral detection with your own algorithms. This SDK also includes a bi-directional RESTful API for easy, programmatic access.

Putting a Spotlight on Exabeam’s Data Science
Want to learn more about how Exabeam uses Data Science in our solutions? Read our Chief Data Scientist, Derek Lin’s blog on our new Machine Learning SDK and what it can do for you:
“As a security data scientist, I find Exabeam’s analytics platform does all the above well enough to tackle various use cases in the production system. We are opening the analytics platform up with a machine learning (ML) SDK and a set of API so that external data scientists can enjoy the same level of ease in interacting with the value-enriched data. Our goal of the ML SDK is to provide full access to Exabeam’s data lake and database.”
