SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2017) - Securonix, the market leader in security analytics and predictive cyber threat detection, has been named one of "the most advanced" real-time security intelligence capability providers by the leading research firm KuppingerCole. KuppingerCole evaluated Securonix's most recent security analytics platform release -- SNYPR 6.0 -- in its Executive View by lead analyst and enterprise security expert Alexei Balaganski. SNYPR is a big data security analytics platform that predicts, detects and responds to cyber threats, insider threats and fraud with cutting-edge behavior analytics and machine-learning techniques. Its modular components include next generation SIEM, a big data lake with intelligent log management and the most advanced UEBA capabilities available. Customers may choose to deploy the complete, end-to-end platform or any set of its modules. According to Balaganski, "Last year, we declared that the Securonix Security Analytics Platform can be considered one of the most advanced implementations of the Real-Time Security Intelligence concept. With the new 6.0 release, the company has closed the remaining functional gaps and addressed other issues such as a complicated product portfolio and the lack of managed services, thus further reaffirming our verdict." "KuppingerCole is the third major analyst firm this year to conclude that Securonix delivers the most advanced security analytics capabilities for the detection of advanced threats. It seems the analyst community has reached a consensus," said Securonix CEO Sachin Nayyar. SNYPR was developed to deliver on the promise that security information and event monitoring tools (SIEM) failed to fulfill: automated, accurate, real-time detection of advanced threats. To meet this challenge, SNYPR ingests nearly limitless volumes of data from hundreds of data sources, enriches the data with context at the point of ingestion and applies advanced behavior analytics and machine learning in real-time to identify complex, advanced threats that are invisible to legacy SIEM. "A key differentiator of the Securonix SNYPR platform is its flexibility and extensibility; it provides a broad range of predefined threat models and over 350 out-of-the-box connectors to identity management and security tools to collect identity data, access and entitlements, as well as activities and violations from existing corporate infrastructure. What positions Securonix apart from many other players in this market is the platform's extensibility, comprehensive set of out-of-the-box contents, and a broad range of connectors and integrations with third party identity management and security products," said Balaganski. SNYPR comes packaged with over 1,000 out-of-the-box threat models for insider threat, cyber threat, compliance, cloud security and fraud, many industry-specific business use cases, and access to the Securonix Threat Model Exchange, a library of threat models sourced from the company's cross-industry customer base and intelligence sources. SNYPR's reporting and response features are as advanced as its threat detection capabilities, with elegant visualizations, automated compliance reports, and customizable incident response workflows based on industry best practices. "SNYPR is closing the gap between security analytics and legacy SIEM by enhancing or even replacing its threat detection capabilities and automating the end-to-end security requirements that tend to overwhelm security teams. It's an army of analysts in one, at machine-speed," said Securonix CTO Tanuj Gulati. "With their latest release, based on the open and standard-based big data model, the company has addressed the need for scalability and long-term storage for companies that are looking to deploy the solution as an end-to-end platform for log management, SIEM and Security Analytics," said Balaganski. KuppingerCole's Executive View comes just weeks after reports by Gartner and Forrester. In all, the three major analyst firms praise Securonix SNYPR for its cutting-edge analytics, maturity, industry leadership and customer satisfaction.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a webinar titled “Tunnel Vision Is Hurting Your Security: Time to See The Forest For The Trees” featuring David Monahan, research director of security and risk management at EMA, and Dustin Rigg Hillard, VP of engineering and co-founder at Versive. When data that is critical to cybersecurity tools remains in silos, everyone loses. Each class of tool—including perimeter, internal, endpoint, network, and mobile—uses its own methodology and datasets. These tools are sometimes able to identify potential threats within its own span of visibility, but not across the entire environment. This siloed approach diminishes the value of the data and leaves organizations with incomplete visibility, significant management overhead, and uncertainty about which security tools are actually necessary to ingest and analyze the data to protect the business. Existing tools focus on what is happening at the perimeter (SIEM), network and endpoints (UEBA), or externally (threat intelligence), without combining data to assess the true threat level to a business. For effective security, organizations need these sensor-based tools, but also a machine-learning driven sense-making solution to identify threats across all tiers and datasets. During this webinar, Monahan and Rigg Hillard, will address answers to the following questions: The webinar is Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.

New Product Integrations Deliver Additional UEBA Context for More Accurate Network Threat Detection and Enforcement Policies SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 15, 2017) - RSA 2017 -- Preempt, pioneer of the industry's first behavioral firewall, today announced several new technology integrations for its Preempt Behavioral Firewall, which makes it possible for customers to gain deeper context and intelligence for more accurate internal network threat detection, as well as gain more threat enforcement options to automatically stop threats before they take a foothold in an organization. New data integrations include Single Sign-On vendors like Okta, cloud directories like Azure Active Directory and VPN gateways, as well as enforcement integrations with SecureAuth, RSA SecurID, Duo, Google Authenticator and HP Aruba ClearPass. The Preempt Behavioral Firewall protects organizations from security breaches, malicious insiders and risky behavior by responding in real-time to suspicious activity. The company's patented solution uniquely combines User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) with a contextual automated and adaptive response that proactively stops threats without disrupting the business. Policies take into account a user or entity's role and behavior and the assets being targeted. In addition, enforcement options can redirect users, confirm a threat or block once a threat is verified, providing security teams with enormous flexibility and efficiency gains. "Effectively and efficiently mitigating insider threats requires real-time visibility and adaptive response," said Ajit Sancheti, co-founder and CEO of Preempt. "Other UEBA solutions focus on taking in as many data sources as they can to their machine learning process for detecting anomalies, creating confusion and leading to false-positives. With Preempt's new data and enforcement integrations, our behavioral firewall is focused on deeper, contextual data; pivotal in alerting and responding to today's threats. As enterprise perimeters and hybrid networks continue to dissolve, security enforcement is going to be based upon intelligent and contextual behavior-based identity. The Preempt Behavioral Firewall enables that transformation." New data integrations with Okta, Azure AD and multi-vendor VPN gateways bring deeper threat detection context to identify the most actionable incidents. In addition, new enforcement integrations with Duo, RSA SecurID, Google Authenticator, SecureAuth and HP Aruba ClearPass enable users to automatically apply granular enterprise wide policies to block, notify or challenge the user to verify identity. These enhancements deliver the richest capabilities for automatically detecting and responding to attackers, malicious insiders and careless users. "Maintaining adequate corporate controls to combat cyber security and fraud are some of the largest risks facing financial institutions today," said Anne M. Balcer, general counsel for Congressional Bank. "By providing us with granular intelligence on our internal network traffic, the Preempt Behavioral Firewall gives us the opportunity to quickly detect and respond to critical security threats in real-time." Tweet this: News: @PreemptSecurity announces new data sources and enforcement integrations https://www.preempt.com/partners/ #UEBA #InsiderThreats About Preempt Preempt protects enterprises from security breaches and malicious insiders with the industry's first Behavioral Firewall. This innovative and patented solution couples User and Entity Behavior Analysis (UEBA) and Adaptive Response to provide the most effective solution for both detecting and automatically responding to security threats. This proactive approach allows organizations to preempt threats in real-time without engaging already overwhelmed security teams.
