Cyberoam UTQ helps detect bad behaviour
User Threat Quotient solution helps IT security managers to detect risky behaviour by end users
Cyberoam has introduced a new technology to help IT security managers to spot risky user behaviour on their networks.
The User Threat Quotient (UTQ), available on Cyberoam's Next-Generation Firewall and UTM appliances, UTQ harnesses information derived out of user's web traffic to determine risky users that pose security and /or legal risks.
The solution is able to analyse a large quantity of data, so that security managers can preempt and mitigate threats caused by end users, generally regarded as the weakest link in IT security.
The User Threat Quotient (UTQ) studies the web behavior of users by analyzing massive data of allowed and denied web traffic for web categories like IP Address, P2P, phishing and fraud, porn, spam URL, spyware, URL translation sites and more that pose security and legal risks.
The company said the benefits of UTQ include spotting risky users based on their web behaviour at a glance without manual efforts and removing the complexity of analysing large volumes of network lods, eliminating the need for SMBs to invest in separate SIEM tools,. enabling investigation into the spread of risk within the network and facilitating corrective actions to fine-tune user policies.
Abhilash Sonwane, SVP, Products and Technology, Cyberoam commented: "Enterprise networks generate lots of data with ample clues into user-triggered events, but the information remains incomprehensible and correlating data from various logs and reports takes time and special skills, and is subject to the risk of human oversight.
"Most security teams struggle with timely detection of risk-prone user behaviour since they remain devoid of required actionable security data. User Threat Quotient (UTQ) from Cyberoam effortlessly profiles suspicious web behaviour of network users, helping security teams with actionable inputs and relieving them from having to go through a labyrinth of massive logs."
