Meet the Cybersecurity Team Focused on Making Security Practitioners More Efficient

Exabeam is the Smarter SIEMTM company.

We help security teams work smarter, allowing them to detect, investigate and respond to cyberattacks in 51 percent less time.

Security organizations no longer have to live with missed distributed attacks and unknown threats, or manual investigations and remediation. With the modular Exabeam Security Management Platform, analysts can collect unlimited log data, use behavioral analytics to detect attacks, and automate incident response, both on-premises or in the cloud.

Exabeam is headquartered in Foster City, California and was founded and built by seasoned security and enterprise IT veterans from Imperva, ArcSight, and Sumo Logic. We are privately funded by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Cisco Investments, Norwest Venture Partners, Acrew Capital, Icon Ventures, and investor Shlomo Kramer.

"We collect eight to 12 billion events per day. With Exabeam, almost overnight, we gained an immense operational efficiency."

Why the name Exabeam?

When Nir, Domingo and Sylvain started brainstorming ideas for a company name, big data was the original source of their inspiration. The product would process a lot of data – many, many gigabytes. But ‘giga’ and ‘tera’ were already all over the tech company landscape. So, they went big – literally – thinking one billion gigabytes, otherwise known as an exabyte. They also considered the product would shine a light on the interesting patterns contained in huge volumes of log data, and voilà they landed on Exabeam, a combination of ‘exabyte’ and ‘light beam’.


Our Mission

Security analysts are overwhelmed by a multitude of mundane and repetitive tasks. They need smarter technology that helps them identify and do more with fewer resources. A smarter SIEM with automated timeline creation means less grunt work, fewer false positives, and faster response through automated playbooks.

Exabeam’s mission is to make every security practitioner more efficient.

Security practitioners can not be effective if they’re struggling to identify the most critical threats and remediate them manually. They need efficiency. Leveraging technology powered by machine learning and automation frees them up to respond to and solve problems that require human minds. This helps organizations reduce risk, and ultimately makes the world a safer place.

Efficiency also serves a higher purpose: creating a future where security teams have all the resources they need. The cybersecurity industry has struggled for decades to meet skills and labor demand. Technology can make a big dent in solving the problem, but we believe that investing in learning opportunities for the next generation of cybersecurity professionals and adding new voices to teams through diversity and inclusion programs are also required to move the needle. Our Exabeam Cares and ExaGals programs are two initiatives that support this broader cause.

We were drawn to the fact that out of the box, our security operations analysts can use Exabeam SIEM to respond to alerts without much customization.

Exabeam Cares

At Exabeam we believe that giving back to the community raises everyone. That’s why we established Exabeam Cares, a philanthropic program dedicated to improving local and global communities through education and service. Exabeam Cares is about giving back to our community in a way that promotes respect and welfare for all.

While we invest in a variety of give-back programs, a primary focus of our philanthropic efforts is around education:

  • Investing in the current and next generation of cybersecurity practitioners and leaders
  • Fostering diversity by creating an opportunity for underrepresented groups in our industry
  • Providing the foundation for individuals to thrive, whether by addressing food insecurity, early education roadblocks, or career development and training

One way we’re investing in the next generation of cybersecurity leaders is through the Exabeam Cybersecurity Scholarship Program. As the cybersecurity landscape evolves and cyber threats become more complex and difficult to detect, we need bright minds to tackle them with a fresh perspective. We’re looking for students who show passion for driving innovative solutions and addressing the cybersecurity challenges of the future.
