People don't change but technology does-that's what makes behavioral analytics so fascinating. By studying the behavior of people and machines, you can understand what's normal and what may pose a risk to your organization. This means that you can discover new, targeted, unknown threats in real-time.

Find some inspiration and hear real-life stories with John Pescatore, Director of the SANS Institute, and Matt Rodgers, Head of Strategy at E8 Security, as they discuss how behavioral analytics automates learning of user and device behavior to discover malicious activity. Learn how that translates into earlier discovery of malicious activity and faster investigation time for security incidents.

You're already familiar with the challenges brought by IOT, real-time insider threat prevention, and ransomware. In this webinar, we'll cover recent examples of how behavioral analytics addresses those risks. And then we'll show you how to use that to improve the operational efficiency of your security team and how to uplevel your threat hunting abilities. Following the discussion, we'll show a demo of the E8 Fusion Platform and how it connects the dots between the security systems you already have in place to secure the network, your endpoints, and your users.
