Latest Acquisition Brings Advanced Machine Learning and User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) to an Already-Deep Security, Risk & Governance Portfolio

Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced the acquisition of Interseta worldwide leader in security analytics software that provides highly intelligent and accurate cyber-threat protection. The addition of this predictive analytics technology adds depth to Micro Focus' Security, Risk & Governance portfolioand aligns with the company's strategy to help customers quickly and accurately validate and assess risk as they digitally transform their businesses.

Interset unlocks the power of user and entity behavioral analytics (UEBA) and machine learning to furnish security professionals with the most-advanced technique for executing rapid and accurate threat-detection analysis. The technology will accelerate Micro Focus' delivery of a more-robust UEBA offering and help drive deeper data insights across security and operations that are necessary to execute on the company's SecOps Analytics vision.

Interset has achieved a strong reputation in the market with software that has been proven in key verticals – energy, critical infrastructure, high-tech, aerospace, defense and government – where threat detection is at a premium. The technology will supplement Micro Focus' Big Data analytics software, Vertica, and add additional value to Micro Focus ArcSight – the world's leading real-time correlation engine – to deliver a highly differentiated cyber-security solution.

Key attributes of the Interset technology include:

  • Extensible analytics – With multiple use cases out of the box – including inside threats, targeted attacks, and fraud – the technology eliminates the need for expensive product consultations and customization.

  • Principled math – The software utilizes a growing library of more than 350 proven machine-learning and advanced-analytics models, applying them to both events and entities, to yield a highly accurate means of detecting, connecting, and quantifying high-risk behaviors.

  • Scalable Big Data – The flexible, open platform combines an advanced-analytics engine with open-source, big-data technology, including Kafka, Spark, Phoenix, Hadoop, HBase, Elasticsearch, ZooKeeper, d3, and Kibana. It can be deployed in the Vertica, Hortonworks or Cloudera infrastructures, scaling to meet the needs of the largest, most-sophisticated environments.

Momentum Cyber acted as exclusive financial advisor to Interset, Strategic Capital Associates acted for Micro Focus and the acquisition is effective immediately. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
