Why What You Don't Know, May Hurt You
Attackers try hard to mask their activities and fly below the radar of your security paradigm - but their behaviors will be anomalous. Automated Anomaly Detection provides security analytics that uncover early signs of data theft, rare or new processes on your system, and population or peer outliers.
Prelert adds Elasticsearch connector to open up big data
Big data analysis can open up valuable insights that are locked up in databases, but releasing that information without access to a team of data scientists isn't easy. Analytics company Prelert is aiming to make big data accessible and valuable for all businesses with its anomaly detection engine.
Finding Unknown Threats with Anomaly Detection
Despite the wide array of advanced security technologies available, data breaches still happen. Automated anomaly detection based on unsupervised machine learning can quickly uncover intrusion attempts before widespread harm can occur.
When Internt of Things Meets Big Data
IoT will exponentially increase the volume, variety, and velocity of data, but that's not all you need to worry about. Early detection of anomalies is essential to remedy issues before they become larger problems or to quickly clean up after a failure.

Splunk commissioned RedMonk analyst Donnie Berkholz to talk with Prelert about building software on the Splunk platform and the developer experience of the Splunk Web Framework.
If you can look at all your data, with machine learning you can learn what’s a normal, behavioral mode and identify things that are changing and impacting the system with cross-correlation.
"The data sciences applications vendor has signed a reseller agreement with Cymbel, an information technology solutions provider focused on security and compliance."
"Replacing franken-monitors and frameworks with the Splunk Ecosystem"
Automatically learns the normal behavior of populations of users, devices and resources, then cross-correlates data sources in real time to identify the anomalous behaviors that indicate advanced security threats
"Prelert provides advanced Security Analytics capabilities to automatically identify anomalies that IT teams need to know about."
"Vendors in the space are explicitly addressing the security use case, both directly--by pushing security data into Hadoop, for example--and by bringing big-data techniques and tools into the security space: Look at offerings from folks like Prelert ..."
"The modern practice of cyber-security is now powered by data analysis. As a result, the quality of security will be determined by the volume and quality of the data collected about your environment, and the ability to uncover threats."
"Data science is one part analysis and one part art. It gathers together data from many sources and gleans important insights. Can this demanding practice be packaged as a piece of software? Prelert believes that it can."

Network World article by CEO, Mark Jaffe relates end-user stories of using predictive analytics to slash troubleshooting times on seemingly unsolvable problems.
SOA World article by Karl Renneker on the advantages resellers can bring to their customers by offering predictive analytics solutions.
"Prelert provides machine intelligence-based predictive analytics. The startup's patent-pending analytics automatically mines existing management tools to find answers in huge volumes of data."
"... a new crop of predictive analytics solutions for IT operations promises not only to speed up root cause analysis; they show great promise for predicting performance issues before they're even noticed by users and providing the information for IT to correct them before there's any business impact."
"Computer Associates hopes to get an edge in the hotly competitive world of performance management with the addition of machine learning to its CA Application Performance Management (APM) tool. The addition is thanks to an OEM deal with Prelert."
"... predictive analytics can help IT teams better understand and support the business applications that are the very lifeblood of their enterprise. After all, predicting the right service to offer your online customer won't help if the customer experiences sluggish application performance."
"APM tools today need to go beyond 'human understanding' of how the IT infrastructure and overall environment behaves. "
"In terms of raw potential, Prelert may well be the powerhouse in a pack of 22 already powerful APA vendors"
"The combination of the Prelert Anomaly Detective with Splunk allows Prelert to notify customers of anomalies that the customer did not even know to go look for and that can easily be leading indicators of problems that have not yet been reported."
"Prelert released a new application yesterday that combines machine learning and predictive analytics to detect and report anomalous behavior emanating from IT infrastructure."
"these are some really hot algorithm guys, mathematicians out of Boston, who had developed … machine-learning analytics for anomaly detection and monitoring. And it's functionality that's beautifully adjacent to and complementary (to) what Splunk does." Godfrey R. Sullivan, Chairman & CEO
