Framingham-Based Prelert Recognized As Emerging Vendor

Prelert, a provider of machine learning anomaly detection solutions for
IT security and operations teams, announced it has been named to The
Channel Company’s
exclusive 2015
CRN® Emerging Vendors List

The annual list features up-and-coming
technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products,
creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create
high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors
recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new
technologies to meet growing market demands.

Prelert’s Anomaly Detective uses data science, in the form of
unsupervised machine learning, to analyze and cross-correlate millions
of data points in near-real-time, automatically baselining normal
behavior patterns within the data and identifying statistical outliers
that may represent a successful breach, exfiltration, or other
problematic activity.

It eliminates the need to set static thresholds
and rules that return too many alerts when they’re set too strictly, or
miss important activity when they’re not strict enough, so organizations
can detect and mitigate malicious and/or problematic activity in

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of
emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The
exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors
List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the
table provide channel partners with product options that will propel
their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel
Company, in a press release. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding
efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will
continue to evolve the IT channel.”

“IT security teams know they’re constantly under attack and they’re
working tirelessly to protect their organizations, but they don’t have
the tools they need. Traditional security and operations tools are just
not capable of identifying threats and problems as quickly and
accurately as required to keep up with today’s environment,” said Mark
Jaffe, Prelert’s CEO, in a press release. “With machine intelligence, Prelert can help
security and operations teams detect attacks and problems more quickly,
reduce the number of false positive alerts and accelerate root cause
analysis. Our channel partners are an important component of offering
our capability to organizations across geographies and vertical markets.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in
2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North

Prelert has its headquarters in Framingham.
