Edison, NJ (USA), February 07th, 2015 — Cyberoam ( ), a leading global provider of network
security appliances has introduced a unique capability – User Threat
Quotient (UTQ) – to help IT security managers identify users posing
security risks with ease. With UTQ, Cyberoam extends its own
innovation of Layer-8 technology and turns over a new leaf in
user-identity focused security. Available on Cyberoam’s
Next-Generation Firewall and UTM appliances, UTQ harnesses information
derived out of user’s web traffic to determine risky users that pose
security and / or legal risks.

Studies have proved that users are the weakest link in the security
chain and patterns of human behavior can be used to predict and
prevent attacks. Said Mr. Abhilash Sonwane, SVP, Products and
Technology, Cyberoam, “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.”

Given this scenario, a security manager wishing for a science
fiction-like capability to preempt and mitigate threats shouldn’t
come as a surprise. The ongoing paradigm shift towards pre-emptive
security shares some signs of such capabilities. Many organizations
and security managers are leveraging big data analytics tools to
capture early signs of specific user actions or network event patterns
that may hint at a possible ongoing attack or anomaly.

Commenting further, Mr. Sonwane 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

The User Threat Quotient (UTQ) studies the web behavior of 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

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

Winds of change in IT and network security clearly indicate a growing
need to focus on internal threats or risks from users. As a result,
many CXOs now identify analytics and actionable security as a key
investment area besides cloud, virtualization and mobility, to
leverage security analysis that enable faster decision making.
Extending its own innovation of Layer-8 identity-security with UTQ,
Cyberoam continues to bridge the gaps where many security paradigms
fall short in combating insider threats and user-triggered risks.
