Lockheed Martin has entered into a commercial cyber partnership with Interset’s insider threat detection solution during the 2016 Gartner Risk and Security Summit conference in National Harbor, Md.
“Insider Threats pose one of the highest risks to an organization, and thefts by malicious insiders are projected to double by 2017, approaching half a trillion dollars annually,” said Angie Heise, vice president, Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber. “Today, we are proud to announce a key partner for our insider threat detection solution, Interset Software. Interset’s unique, market-proven approach to User Behavioral Analytics (UBA) complements our Wisdom Insider Threat Identification’s (ITI’s) award-winning capabilities. Interset’s depth in the UBA market and big data approach to detecting insider threats makes them an ideal fit for Lockheed Martin."
Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber specializes in developing, implementing, maintaining and securing critical infrastructures for Fortune 1000 and Global 1000 companies. The organization's approach is based on an Intelligence Driven Defense philosophy that focuses on harnessing information from those who seek to attack, and using it against them.
The Interset Threat Detection Platform uses machine learning, patented predictive analytics and risk-based scoring to automate the process of sifting through terabytes of events to detect and surface true inside threats. Interset’s easy-to-comprehend approach and intuitive user interface details insider attacks in context, visually depicting threat stages and calculating risks as attacks unfold. Interset clearly details the environment of an attack, capturing and correlating forensic data for incident validation and offering integrated incident response workflows for rapid reaction to unfolding attacks.
According to Interset CEO Dale Quayle, "Lockheed Martin has built the definitive, proactive solution to combat insider threats, which remain the most common type of attack on sensitive data. Combining Lockheed Martin’s Wisdom ITI solution and Interset’s UBA platform gives customers unprecedented ability to correlate human behavior and IT systems behavior, to offer a complete insider risk picture across employees, consultants and contractors. Investigators can accurately gather contextual data, surface the threat and quickly react to high-risk incidents".
