Huntsman Security, is the trading and brand name of Tier-3 Pty Ltd. It is an Australian information security software company which provides security, compliance and analytics solutions to organisations to enable the collection, analysis and alerting/reporting on systems, user and applications activity logs, audit trails and event data for cyber security attacks, insider threats, hacking and malware. Huntsman Security was formerly known as Tier-3.

This type of solution is commonly known as security incident and event management, or SIEM, but is increasingly being referred to as "Security Analytics" in many circles. The technology has been covered by several analysts including Forrester Research (specifically their Security Analytics vendor landscape and Security Analytics Wave™),[1][2] Gartner,[3][4] Bloor Research[5] and 451 Research.[6][7] Huntsman Security (Tier-3) appeared in the Gartner Magic Quadrant in 2011 and 2012 as well as being reviewed by Secure Computing in 2007.[8]

Huntsman Security invented and patented a technique called Behavioural Anomaly Detection (BAD) which allows a normal baseline of system and network activity to be learnt, against which anomalous patterns of activity, which could indicate a security attack or case of misuse, to be detected. Version 2 of their anomaly detection technology was released in 2013.


Huntsman Security (formerly Tier-3) was founded in Sydney, Australia in 1999. The company has offices in Australia, Japan, US and UK. Their products – Huntsman Enterprise SIEM, Huntsman Analyst Portal and Huntsman Unified Console – incorporate the log collection and database engine, real-time analysis, rule-based security event detection, threat intelligence and the BAD engine and the threat mitigation technology Huntsman developed in 2014/2015 to handle cyber threats and remove false positives - collectively Security Analytics. Huntsman Security plays an active role in the information security community, supporting the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) and has sponsored the UK Cyber Security Challenge.[9][10]


Tier-3 Pty Ltd (Huntsman Security's parent company) holds US Patent 7,296,070 ("Integrated Monitoring System") which is at the heart of its security analytics solution[11] and Australian Patent No. 785131 ("Integrated Monitoring System") [12]
