(From 11.5.1 and later) NetWitness UEBA Modeled Behavior provides analysts with visibility into the usual activities of users monitored by UEBA. These modeled behaviors are based on the log data leveraged by UEBA and are available a day after the UEBA service is configured. UEBA monitors abnormal user behaviors to identify risky users and this requires data to be processed for a certain period of time. However, Modeled Behaviors reflect the activities of the user within a day of the service configuration.

For example, if a user fails multiple times by logging in with incorrect credentials within an hour, analysts can view these behaviors as Failed Authentications for the user.

- Modeled Behaviors are not applicable to network entities.
- By default, the sorting and data source options are disabled when there is no data available.

To view the Modeled Behaviors:

  1. Log into NetWitness Platform and click Users.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • In the Overview tab, under Top Risky Users panel, click on a username.
    • In the Entities tab, click on a username.
  3. Click the Modeled Behaviors tab, to view the Modeled Behaviors highlighted with a blue line in the left panel. The results can be sorted by the date or in alphabetical order.
