Hewlett Packard Enterprise Buys User And Entity Behavioral Analytics Firm

Integration expected to boost HPE’s Intelligent Edge strategy for better protection against next-gen attacks.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has acquired Niara, a behavioral security analytics firm, which will become part of HPE Aruba.

HPE said it will integrate Niara’s technology with Aruba’s ClearPass portfolio for more "complete visibility and attack detection system."

Niara is regarded as forerunner in the User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) security market section and expected to boost HPE’s security strategy in wired and wireless network infrastructure for IoT.

Gartner describes UEBA as offering "profiling and anomaly detection based on a range of analytics approaches, usually using a combination of basic analytics methods and advanced analytics."

Once Niara discovers a security incident, ClearPass can be used to isolate the exposed network, according to HPE.

"Integrating Niara’s advanced behavioral analytics with ClearPass is a natural extension that will now deliver network-wide, real time visibility and predictive assessment of potential risks inside the enterprise," says Sriram Ramachandran, CEO and co-founder of Niara.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
