RSA today announced that it will purchase embedded behavioral analytics firm Fortscale in a move to enhance its RSA NetWitness Platform security monitoring family.
The security firm also unveiled a new version of NetWitness that encompasses Fortscale's user and entity behavioral analytics (UEBA) features, as well as orchestration and endpoint support.
"Adding more security monitoring and prevention tools is a common response to the growing digital risk environment, but too often, the influx of data creates unattended alerts, overwhelming analysts," said Michael Adler, vice president of the RSA NetWitness Platform. "The new UEBA and orchestration capabilities in RSA NetWitness Platform provide heightened visibility and analytics, allowing analysts to keep up with their SIEM data, investigate issues, and automate threat responses, all on a single integrated platform."
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Read more about the acquisition here.
