Balabit Showcases Technical Demo of Blindspotter with biometric analysis of keystroke dynamics and mouse movements at RSA Conference 2016 booth #N4608

NEW YORK, NY and SAN FRANCISCO, CA – March 2, 2016 – Balabit (www.balabit.com), a leading provider of contextual security technologies, best known as “the creator of syslog-ng” today announced the release of Blindspotter version 2016.03 at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. The new version of its User Behavior Analytics (UBA) solution features several new and unique machine learning algorithms that help security teams to quickly identify hijacked accounts or discover forbidden account sharing, thereby avoiding large-scale data breaches or compliance problems. Blindspotter not only reveals previously unknown threats, but also precisely visualizes them, enabling organizations to dramatically reduce the time to discover, investigate and respond to insider and outsider threats.

“Besides the existing set of several sophisticated machine learning algorithms , the new release of Blindspotter further improves behavior analysis by adding the capability of detecting scripted activity on accounts and by performing a biometric analysis of keystroke dynamics and mouse movements,” said Péter Gyöngyösi, Product Manager of Blindspotter at Balabit. “Blindspotter enables CIOs and CSOs to get a comprehensive, unique visualization of their IT ecosystem. Gaining a better understanding on how IT services are used by specific users or user groups, IT professionals can get immediate, actionable and tangible insight. Overall, Blindspotter improves IT decisions, helps optimize IT resources and business efficiency.”
