AI Comes To Behavior Analytics

Artificial intelligence will help the User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) market finally realize its potential by making the inputs more manageable and cutting down on the false positives, according to Sophos Principal Research Scientist Chester Wisniewski.

Up until now, Wisniewski said the amount of data has made it very hard for UEBA tools to write an algorithm that can make sense of all of it. As a result, Wisniewski said organizations get a lot of false alarms, meaning that they won't trigger an enforcement action even if something anomalous is detected.

At best, Wisniewski said they'll just flag the problem for their Security Operations Center (SOC) to look into. But thanks to AI-driven advancements, Wisniewski expects false positives to become infrequent enough that organizations will eventually become open to automatically blocking anything that generates an alert.

AI should also free up time that security professionals currently spent triaging, Wisniewski said, enabling them to dig much more deeply into the two or three most significant alerts.
