Abhilash Sonwane

Cyberoam the provider of network security appliances has rolled out a unique capability User Threat Quotient (UTQ) to enable IT security managers to recognize potential security risks with great ease. This solution is designed to provide of Layer-8 technology protection and turns over a new leaf in user-identity focused security.

Talking about the new solution, Abhilash Sonwane, SVP, Products and Technology, Cyberoam, said, “Enterprise networks generate lots of data with ample clues into user-triggered events, but the information remains incomprehensible and correlating data from various logs and reports takes time and special skills, and is subject to the risk of human oversight.”

The User Threat Quotient studies the web behaviour of the users by analyzing massive data of allowed and denied web traffic for web categories like IP Address, P2P, Phishing and Fraud, Porn, Spam URL, Spyware, URL Translation Sites and more that pose security and legal risks.

Sonwane further added, “Most security teams struggle with timely detection of risk-prone user behaviour since they remain devoid of required actionable security data. User Threat Quotient (UTQ) from Cyberoam effortlessly profiles suspicious web behavior of network users, helping security teams with actionable inputs and relieving them from having to go through a labyrinth of massive logs.”

The User Threat Quotient helps CSOs / IT security managers by:

  1. Spotting risky users based on their web behavior at a glance without manual efforts
  2. Removing complexity in analyzing terabytes of logs to identify suspicious or risk-prone user behavior
  3. Eliminating the need for SMBs to invest in separate SIEM tools to spot risky users
  4. Enabling investigation into the spread of risk within the network
  5. Facilitating corrective actions to fine-tune user policies
