Securonix UEBA Initial Setup

The initial setup is complex because we're talking about a very complex technology. Our hardware detectors are very complex and our deployment is large-scale. The number of clusters and the number of nodes of each type in the clusters is huge. And we have to synchronize between elements and make sure the service runs from end-to-end so it's not a trivial job. But that's not unique to this vendor. It comes with the technology itself. Anything that's based on big data or that involves algorithms, that involves data ingestion, would be that complex at that type of scale. Our process is very unique. In terms of implementation strategy, we definitely wanted to get close on the first shot. For example, the platform comes with out-of-the-box algorithms. We considered them as the starting points for us. By enabling them with their initial conditions we were looking to strike close on that first shot. Then, we looked to get exact in the second step. In that step, we looked at maturing of the content and we wanted it to be guided by our clients. At that stage our threat clients could come to us and be exact with how they wanted those conditions, the algorithms, to be. We then took that into our content maturing process to get it exact for them. It was definitely a phased approach. View full review »
