User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) is a relatively new category of cybersecurity tools that utilize machine learning (ML) algorithms to detect abnormalities in the behavior of the users and entities that belong to an enterprise network. UEBA monitors and continuously learns from the behavior of various user accounts and devices in the network, and establishes a baseline behavioral profile for each using statistical and probability models.
Among the different types of cyberattacks, insider threats are the hardest to track and have the highest rate of success. This can be attributed to their use, or rather misuse, of legitimate credentials, machines, and access privileges. Traditional SIEM solutions use simple rule-based alerting to detect potential insider threats, which cannot analyze user behavior or detect any anomalies therein.
Identities are easy to fake, but not actions. Closely monitoring the behavior of a person can reveal a lot about their true intentions. Similarly, keeping a close watch on a machine’s activities can expose potential security problems. Blending security information and event management (SIEM) with user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) can bring numerous users and devices belonging to an enterprise under surveillance.

“I’d like to pay with my credit card.” “Sure! Let me have your card. Could I also get your full name, phone number, and address?” “Yeah. It’s Logan Lovato, and I live at 1 Lemon Street, Anaheim. My number is 714.308.75xx.” This was a common occurence at retail stores across the US in the not too distant past. People shared their information and didn’t think much about it.
