HPE, Wednesday announced it has acquired Niara, a Sunnyvale, California-based leader in the emerging User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) security market segment. Niara will operate within HPE Aruba to enhance the company’s ClearPass network security portfolio for wired and wireless network infrastructure.

UEBA is new class of security technology that is designed to identify next-generation security threats that have penetrated traditional firewalls and other perimeter systems.

The Niara behavioral analytics software automates the detection of attacks and risky behaviors inside an organization and dramatically reduces the time and skill needed for security teams to investigate and respond to security events. 

Adding Niara to the HPE Aruba ClearPass portfolio advances HPE’s Intelligent Edge strategy for transforming workplace and operational experiences within the fast-growing wired and wireless network infrastructure market for traditional and IoT devices. The Niara behavioral analytics solution seamlessly integrates with the ClearPass network security platform to create the industry’s most complete visibility and attack detection system.

With over 20 billion IoT devices expected to be connected to networks by 2020, security is the number one concern for our customers. Combining Niara’s next-generation behavior analytics software with Aruba’s ClearPass network security portfolio will deliver the industry’s most complete visibility and attack detection system.

ClearPass has earned a reputation as the industry’s leading device and user-access policy solution,” said Sriram Ramachandran, CEO and co-founder of Niara. “Integrating Niara’s advanced behavioral analytics with ClearPass is a natural extension that will now deliver network-wide, real time visibility and predictive assessment of potential risks inside the enterprise.
