ML Based Policies

ML Based Policies

To access the Machine Learning Based (ML Based) policy page, go to Policies > Behavior Analytics > ML Based tab. Machine learning models provide detections indicating suspicious insider behavior, suspicious network access, and suspicious device activity indicating a compromised device.


Basic UBA or UBA standard includes UEBA 9 predefined sequential rules. Advanced UBA includes UEBA ML models, UEBA user scoring with user confidence index (UCI), UCI based inline policies, and Custom UBA sequence rules.

Contact Support to enable this feature in your account, additional licensing is required.


Once your account is enabled with Advanced UBA, you can turn the ML based policy page on or off. Click (image above #7) to turn ML on or off.


All grayed out features or tabs means the feature is disabled by your admin or globally it’s disabled because you need additional licensing.

  • Scenarios (image above #3) – select Malicious Insider, Compromised Device, or Compromised Credential checkboxes to view the specific policy type.
  • Tags (image above #4) – select from the predefined data sources: Machine Learning, Real-time Protection, API-enabled Protection, or IaaS Audit Logs. Each policy listed (image above #8) is tagged with a data source.
  • Reset (image above #5) – at any time you click reset to remove all filters and start with your default view. The default view displays all policies and severity types.
