OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2016) - Interset, provider of advanced threat detection solutions utilizing advanced User Behavior Analytics (UBA), has been named a finalist in the 2016 SC Magazine Awards Europe. The accolades celebrate outstanding threat-detection and prevention products in information security. The Interset 3 Behavior Analytics Threat Detection Platform is recognized in the Behavior Analytics/Enterprise Threat Detection category, which acknowledges superior products and services that help customers address the most pressing cyber-security and insider threats. The winners will be announced at the SC Magazine Awards Europe gala-dinner ceremony to be held in London on Tues., June 7 at Old Billingsgate, a stunning new venue on the River Thames.

Interset applies behavioral analytic models and both unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning to dynamically detect, surface, and connect anomalous events that are the early stages of advanced attacks. Attacks are prioritized based on overall risk and presented in real time, without reliance on rules or thresholds.

"Our approach is unique in that it connects accounts, files, machines, and applications, tying them to risk scores that change with each new activity to surface attacks earlier and more accurately," said Interset CEO Dale Quayle. "We're pleased to be recognized for our unique approach and our proven ability to collect, process, and analyze very large amounts of data, and for our capacity to ensure ITAR compliance and protect IP from foreign-government espionage."
