Bay Dynamics Empowers Users to Identify and Prioritize Top Threats and Offenders for Fast Resolution of Most Urgent Security Issues

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Bay Dynamics, the leading provider of information risk intelligence to the world's largest organizations, today launched its innovative Risk Fabric Remediation Portal, enabling customers to identify threat patterns, trends and behaviors based on deviations from normal user activities. As a core component of the company's leading user and information oriented analytics platform, Risk Fabric, the Remediation Portal empowers users to diagnose the root cause of an incident and take action to avert threats and prevent security events from recurring.

Bay Dynamics' Risk Fabric solution enables users to identify risks and potential security events based on employee activities and patterns of behavior, providing actionable intelligence into the root of an attack. The Remediation Portal takes these capabilities even further, accessing and interacting with large data sets so that it can take automated actions or provide guidance for remediating these threats. It allows users to conduct trend and behavior analysis, and correlate security event data with business insights for greater context and causality analysis. This ultimately enables users to identify top escalations and top offenders, and quickly resolve or escalate the most urgent issues.

"Today, organizations are drowning under their big data initiatives, lacking te ability to effectively filter and analyze the information in a timely manner to support their protection efforts," said Feris Rifai, CEO of Bay Dynamics. "With the Risk Fabric Remediation Portal, we are putting all of this information through a user-centric lens for greater clarity and context. This unique approach elevates security incident and event remediation to focus on dealing with patterns, trends, and behaviors."


The Risk Fabric Remediation Portal enables technical staff to easily conduct forensic analysis, remediate security events, and accelerate incident response. At the same time, it allows lines of business to identify broken processes and accept or reject the risks associated with the handling of their own data. At the highest level, it provides CIOs and CISOs the ability to better understand the effectiveness and implications of broader protection efforts.

In Gartner's (News - Alert) recent "Identity Proofing Revisited as Data Confidentiality Dies" (Avivah Litan, Vice President and Distinguished Analyst - December 12, 2013) report that cites Bay Dynamics, author Avivah Litan recommends that organizations "continually monitor and analyze user behavior as soon as a relationship with an individual begins until it ends." Bay Dynamics' user-focused approach to security analytics enables customers to monitor behaviors, so that they can gain greater context into events, which helps speed the identification of advanced persistent threats. Its technology enables users to proactively prevent certain breaches, reduce false positives originating from information security devices such as data loss prevention systems, increase efficiency in dealing with threats and breaches in real-time, and minimize the impact of security events on business operations.

The Risk Fabric Remediation Portal helps customers make use of their big data gathering with an advanced analytics capability that mines the relationships among internal and/or external entities and their attributes, and across related information assets to provide context. It then leverages machine learning and behavior analysis capabilities to maintain intelligence about problems and proper categorizing, prioritization, and resolution.

Unlike most analytics platforms, the Risk Fabric Remediation Portal automatically enriches and adds to the basic security event data generated by network and endpoint tools, adding the relevant context (for example: users, accounts, account attributes, machines and machine attributes) to detect threats, including organized or collusive activities.

Bay Dynamics' Risk Fabric solution has been proven in some of the largest financial institutions in the world, and is ready to provide deep visibility for quick corrective action, allowing any company to operate more securely and efficiently.
