Haystax and Franz Inc. Partner to Deliver Insider Threat Detection Solutions

Oakland, CA and McLean, VA — January 13, 2015 — Haystax Technology, Inc., and Franz Inc., announced a technology partnership that will enable Haystax to leverage Franz’s AllegroGraph technology for patented algorithms and sophisticated behavior models used in Haystax’s insider threat detection solutions. Haystax’s solutions, which are being rapidly adopted by the U.S. government and Fortune 500 companies, are more advanced than traditional rules-based and brute-force processing approaches in identifying the types of risks and the potential impact of their actions that individuals pose to an organization.

“Today’s leading companies understand that there is incredible value in accurately predicting risk,” said Dr. Jans Aasman, CEO of Franz. “This realization is driving demand for sophisticated analytics using semantic graph databases that can ingest and enrich data from diverse sources – such as corporate email, documents, spreadsheets, customer support logs, and social networks – in order to provide relevant, timely and actionable information.”

Graph databases, like AllegroGraph, are one of the new technologies encouraging a rapid re-thinking of the analytics within the social media landscape. By tracking relationships – in a network of people, organizations, events and data – and applying reasoning (inference) to the data and connections, powerful new answers and insights are enabled.

“The active monitoring of social media channels for information about an individual, organization or brand, is becoming common in the private sector as companies listen to gauge brand sentiment and competition,” said Bryan Ware, CTO of Haystax. “Mining social media for commercial applications, including predicting risk, due diligence, investigations, and security-related incidents, provides timely, relevant details to enhance such inquiries.”

Haystax’s predictive models are continuously updated based on the prevailing threat environment making it highly suitable for both detection and continuous evaluation of threats. These unique models go beyond traditional web and business intelligence to enable organizations to achieve contextual real-time situational awareness by fusing all operationally relevant information – private, public, video and live feeds – into consolidated views to show patterns and identify threats that are usually buried in too much noise or not placed in proper context.
