Security provider, Forcepoint, dealt for RedOwl, a security analytics firm focused on helping users understand and manage human risk.

Forcepoint’s human point strategy views people as the focal point for cybersecurity. By focusing on how, when, where and why people interact with critical data and IP, organizations can more effectively identify and address risk.

“The world has fundamentally changed and the way we think about security must change, as well. If the cybersecurity industry fails to put people at the center, it is certain to fall short in helping customers protect their most vital assets,” said Matthew P. Moynahan, chief executive of Forcepoint. “Forcepoint is absolutely committed to empowering customers with human-centric security systems, and RedOwl fits squarely into this promise.”

The RedOwl product line, which will now be known as Forcepoint UEBA (User Entity Behavior Analytics), ended up integrated into Forcepoint’s Data and Insider Threat Security business.

Since 2011, the company focused on visibility into the holistic activities of people, including cyber, physical and financial. Customers deploy these capabilities to analyze large amounts of complex data, assess high-risk events and behaviors, and enact centralized and supervisory oversight to satisfy security and regulatory requirements.

“The opportunity to deliver a holistic solution around proactive human oversight is exciting; joining Forcepoint will accelerate our ability to deliver these important capabilities to our customers,” said Guy Filippelli, chief executive at RedOwl. “We’re thrilled to become a part of the Forcepoint team.”
