We’re happy to announce the public release of uAQL Studio, our new free online tool to learn, build and test uberAgent ESA Activity Monitoring rules.

What Are Activity Monitoring Rules?

Activity Monitoring is at the heart of uberAgent ESA’s endpoint security analytics functionality. When an Activity Monitoring rule matches a risky process, an unusual network connection, or similar activity, uberAgent ESA creates an event in your SIEM (e.g., Splunk). Activity Monitoring’s comprehensive, extensible ruleset is powered by uAQL, a feature-rich query language that is both easy to read by humans and fast to process by computers.

uAQL: a Query Language for System Activity Tracing

Have you ever looked at some XML and thought: “now that’s the type of code I’d like to work with every day of my professional career”? Exactly. That’s why we developed uAQL, a query language that combines the best and most intuitive aspects of popular scripting languages.

uAQL Studio: an IDE for uAQL

Every programming language needs an integrated development environment (IDE). In other words: an application that combines a modern editor (think syntax highlighting and code completion) with an execution environment to test and run your code. uAQL Studio is exactly that: an IDE for uberAgent ESA Activity Monitoring rules.
