A system may include a processor and a memory device having instructions executable by the processor to cause the processor to determine a list of available virtual data centers corresponding to pools of computing resources located on computing devices of service providers. The processor may receive a selection signal via a network from a computing device of a client corresponding to the clients selection of a virtual data center from the list. The processor may subsequently receive additional selection signals corresponding to the clients selection of a template, customization components, and a network for the virtual resource. The processor may generate the virtual resource according to the template customization components, and the network, and may provision the virtual resource on the selected virtual data center.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fortscale Security Ltd., the innovator in machine learning-based user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for security, today introduced Fortscale Presidio™, the industry’s first embedded UEBA engine that natively expands capabilities of existing security solutions. The unveiling comes as the company secures $7M in its latest funding round, led by Evolution Equity Partners and Valor Capital Group. Presidio leverages the predictive, big data analytics and machine-learning engine of Fortscale’s award-winning UEBA platform for insider threat detection to enable security vendors to quickly and simply incorporate advanced behavioral analytics into their security platforms. Presidio adds native risk-based intelligence on the activity of users and entities within a company’s environment to enhance analysis and security enforcement – ultimately improving the performance and effectiveness of the overall security infrastructure. “Fortscale Presidio is a game changer, as it allows other security solutions to leverage, for the first time, an advanced analytics engine to improve their ability to identify insider threats and enhance their mitigation capabilities with behavior-based risks and alerts,” said Idan Tendler, founder and CEO, Fortscale. “Because Presidio is natively embedded in their current security infrastructure, end users get the full benefit of the context and insights that behavioral analytics provide, without having to deploy and manage another product.” Fortscale Presidio instantly upgrades a company’s security infrastructure and products with machine-learning analytics. “It can instantly add artificial intelligence to security products, helping to identify the most important insights from enormous volumes of data,” added Tendler. Presidio can be integrated into on-premise security products or as a UEBAaaS in cloud products, providing customizable and unique data models, behavioral capabilities and application program interfaces (APIs) designed to make integration with security infrastructure solutions, such as SIEM, EDR, EPP, CASB, DLP, and IAM, simple and effective. “As a global operation, we needed a product that could scale in size and in the kinds of data that we collect and profile,” said Tony Velleca, CEO of CYBERPROOF, a UST Global company and Fortscale partner. “The Presidio solution does an extremely good job of making it easy for cyber analysts to see who to pay attention to, to drill down quickly on the anomalies, and to even track the progress of an investigation.” By adding much needed user and entity visibility and analysis, Fortscale Presidio strengthens a company’s security stance and maximizes their security investment by improving the security infrastructure’s ability to uncover insider threats and make better, risk-based decisions that minimize the impact of attacks in the environment. For more information on Presidio, watch this video and visit www.fortscale.com. Fortscale gives you real-time visibility into the actions of users and entities in your environment and uncovers insider threats by identifying unusual behaviors that pose a risk to your business. Combining predictive, big data analytics and advanced machine learning, the Fortscale User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) engine can be deployed as a stand-alone solution optimized for security operations centers (SOCs) or natively embedded in security infrastructure solutions – SIEM, EDR, EPP, CASB, DLP, IAM – to improve risk analysis and decision-making. Upon deployment, Fortscale starts processing user and entity data from throughout your security infrastructure, autonomously modeling behaviors, and quickly and accurately identifying anomalous, risky activity to uncover insider threats. Backed by Intel Capital, Blumberg Capital, Swarth Group, CME Ventures, Evolution Equity and Valor Capital, Fortscale’s insider threat solution lowers analyst stress-levels and improves your security posture overall.

Texas hunters who told authorities they had been shot during an ambush by "illegal aliens" made the whole story up - and actually shot each other, authorities said. Hunting guides Walker Daugherty and Michael Bryant have been indicted on charges of using deadly conduct by discharging firearms in the direction of each other. Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez said an investigation determined Daugherty and another member of their party were wounded by friendly fire and no one else was involved, reported KOSA-TV. The January 6 shooting generated headlines across the country as the men told investigators of being ambushed as they slept at the Circle Dug Ranch in Texas, just five miles north of the Mexican border. At the time, a statement issued by a rancher friend said the Daugherty family believed "the assailants intended to kill the party. The attackers were strategically placed around the lodge and the men were fired upon from different areas," the Albuquerque Journal reported. Daugherty, 26, who was shot in the stomach, said he had no health insurance and a GoFundMe page established in his name raised more than $26,000. Edwin Roberts, 59, was shot in the arm. Both recovered from their wounds. The story received extra traction when Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller shared the men's account on Facebook, where he has more than 400,000 followers. "This why we need the wall," Miller wrote in a post that has since been deleted. It was shared more than 600,000 times. Read: After Nude Photos are Released, Melania Trump Fights Accusations She Came to U.S. Illegally But what really happened is that Daugherty and Bryant were "paranoid" about Mexicans crossing the border, amid all the public banter about immigration woes, and they opened fire after hearing noises inside an RV, according to authorities. Daugherty shot Roberts and Bryant shot Daugherty, the sheriff said. It is not clear whether the men have been taken into custody. Phone messages left by InsideEdition.com for Dominquez and the county prosecutor were not immediately returned.
