SAS Security Intelligence – Technology Overview

SAS Security Intelligence – Technology Overview


Whether you’re trying to stop a
fraudulent credit card purchase an attack on your network or even a terrorism threat it all starts with data,
and ends with analytics. And only SAS Security
Intelligence’s hybrid process gives you the efficiency,
speed, and power to gain timely
insights no matter how complex the problem
or how big the data. Not all that long
ago, “analysis” meant pouring through mounds of paper actual paper looking for that single
piece of information or relationship or connection. Spreadsheets and databases
helped but for many, this is where analytics stalled. Today, it still starts with data data management and
data integration. Often undervalued, these
steps are the underpinning of the entire security
intelligence process. Here, information is pulled
from not only databases but critical unstructured
data sources. And now SAS’ hybrid analytics
approach begins. Predefined business rules are
applied to filter activities and transactions finding the known threats. Next, SAS’
High-Performance Analytics detects anomalies and
abnormal patterns in what’s often terabytes of data. Predictive modeling allows
for: supervised modeling you know what you’re looking for a known bad guy, for example;
semi-supervised modeling maybe those who resemble
the bad guy in some way; and unsupervised modeling when you’re not sure what you’re
looking for, just something out of the ordinary. Many vendors of
security solutions simply provide an ad
hoc, manual process that offers no prioritization. But SAS brings it all together
with powerful network analysis not just simple
data visualization. SAS looks at all relationships
and transactions, how they’re connected and the statistical
significance of these linkages. A scorecard is produced allowing
you to prioritize the risk and take the necessary action. SAS offers a proactive solution
that boosts your detection and prevention efforts. What used to take
hours and even days is now done in minutes. So no matter whether
you’re trying to stop improper payments,
meet the challenges of global compliance, protect
public safety or your network only SAS has proven solutions tailored for your industry. Learn more at
