When looking at options for behavioral analytics and anomaly detection, you will find that what makes the real difference is the quality of the math or the statistical methods on which a solution is based. The better the math, the more accurate the results, and the more broadly applicable and scalable the solution. This technical brief includes a comparison of Prelert's analytics against the popular Holt-Winters method.
Can drilling into logs tell you whether you have been — or are being — hacked? Yes, if you use advanced math to look for weird variations like Prelert does.
Half of IT Security pros believe they're an unlikely target for an attack - yet 61% lack confidence in their ability to detect advanced threats. The latest Ponemon Institute study exposes this contradiction as well as many other disconnects that IT professionals have between perception and reality.
The latest security research from EMA studied 18 security technologies year over year to determine that 95% of security analytics users are confident they can detect a data breach, security analytics tied for first place in value vs. TCO, and other insights.
This infographic displays at a glance what keeps organizations from being confident on breach detection, the 6 value drivers of advanced analytics, and the top 5 uses of security analytics. All statistics based on the EMA analyst report, Data-Driven Security Reloaded.
Learn how IT Ops and APM professionals use anomaly detection software every day to help them cut through overwhelming false alerts, reduce troubleshooting time, and automatically detect potential problems before they spiral into major user issues.
By leveraging machine learning and behavioral analytics, anomaly detection can quickly determine a "normal" baseline from months of past data, and immediately and automatically identify any abnormalities - more accurately and efficiently than writing alert rules ever could.
These articles provide instruction, and can be used as a guide to test drive use cases for machine learning anomaly detection.
Anomalies are easy to find when they're big and frequent but what do you do when they're small and rare?
