Advanced Machine Learning-Based Behavioral Analytics Enhance Threat Detection Capabilities of GuidePoint’s Security Platform as a Service
Prelert, the leading provider of behavioral analytics for IT security, IT operations and business operations teams, and GuidePoint Security LLC, a provider of cybersecurity solutions for commercial and federal organizations, have announced a joint partnership that enables GuidePoint Security clients to successfully achieve their security missions.
GuidePoint Security has partnered with Prelert to enhance the capabilities of GuidePoint Security’s Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) managed service. Through the partnership, vSOC clients gain access to Prelert’s behavioral analytics platform, including its library of pre-configured analytics use cases. The solution has already been deployed with numerous vSOC clients.
“Information security teams are dealing with an increasing amount of security-related data, further taxing their already over-extended personnel,” said Justin Morehouse, Co-Founder & Principal, GuidePoint Security. “We are pleased to add Prelert’s capabilities to our vSOC, improving our clients’ attack detection coverage and assisting vSOC’s validation process to reduce client alerts by nearly 90 percent. This addition further empowers our vSOC clients to focus in on the threats that are most likely to impact their business – and quickly take steps to resolve them.”
GuidePoint Security vSOC clients can now take advantage of Prelert’s parameterized use case configurations, which provide security and behavioral analytics “recipes” that use Prelert’s machine learning-based analytics capabilities to detect attack behaviors present in the client’s data. As one of the first vendors to publish a library of pre-configured use cases for detecting elementary attack behaviors, Prelert enables GuidePoint Security’s vSOC clients to quickly gain insight into behaviors associated with advanced threats, delivering even greater value from their managed security service.
“GuidePoint Security’s vSOC is an impressive security platform as a service, and is helping their clients quickly identify critical security incidents before they become a costly and disruptive problem,” said Mark Jaffe, CEO, Prelert. “We’re thrilled that GuidePoint Security has chosen to use our machine learning technology and pre-configured use cases to enhance their vSOC offering, enabling early detection of elementary attack behaviors before they progress to costly security incidents.”
