New-Scale SIEM and the Exabeam Security Operations Platform
1. Looking Back at the Evolution of SIEM | Blog Post
Over the last 20+ years, the SIEM market has had quite an evolution and growth explosion. Today, SIEM accounts for approximately $4B of total cybersecurity spend and is expected to increase to $6.24B by 2027. This is easy to understand as SIEM has evolved into the data store for cybersecurity data which has been exploding as the volume of data and number of alerts is growing exponentially. Before we go into where the SIEM market goes from here, let’s first take a look back at how SIEM has evolved.
2. New-Scale SIEM: Where Big Data Meets Cybersecurity | Blog Post
Exabeam introduces New-Scale SIEM to evolve the SIEM market towards more powerful cloud-native hyperscale data and security analytics technology with greater performance and significant cost efficiencies. Exabeam is known for having the best behavioral analytics capabilities on the market — it’s why so many of the world’s largest organizations count on us every day to help stop adversaries. We offer advanced automation of TDIR to identify intrusions other SIEMs can’t. Now, we marry our behavioral analytics and TDIR automation with the world’s most modern, hyperscale, cloud-native data lake to cost-effectively ingest, parse, store, and search data (hot, warm, and cold) in real time from anywhere.
3. Introducing the New Exabeam Security Operations Platform | Blog Post
When Chief Product Officer (CPO) Adam Geller started at Exabeam two years ago, we had a primarily on-premises product that had just moved to a SaaS offering. As we considered the future, where we needed to evolve our products, we talked to customers to make sure we truly understood their challenges and realized that there was an opportunity to help security operations teams get a more complete picture of what’s happening in their environments so they can more effectively detect, investigate, and respond to threats. All of this culminates in what Exabeam announced: a new security operations platform with five products designed to solve the problems we’ve heard about time and again: Security teams need to collect more of the right data, teams must know what they are looking for, threats are buried in a sea of noise, and manual investigations lead to incomplete outcomes.
The Exabeam strategy is to design and develop a modular platform for security operations excellence. CEO Michael DeCesare announces the launch of the first phase of the Exabeam Security Operations Platform. Read this post to learn why we created the Exabeam Security Operations Platform, and specifically the benefits to our customers, our partners, Exabeam, and our development teams.
5. Exabeam: A Company and Platform that Puts Customers First | Blog Post

6. Introducing Exabeam SIEM: A Hyperscale Cloud-native SIEM | Blog Post
Cybersecurity today is a big data problem. Every sensor, detection product, or feed required to enable security use cases drives the collection of more data, often into terabytes per day. As the window of opportunity to detect and investigate attacks decreases, defenders are left vulnerable if they don’t know what to look for. As data volumes, exposure points, third-party alerts, and the cost of talent and storage have all multiplied, the speed of SIEM innovation has not kept up. Unfortunately, most SIEM products can’t meet the requirements of today and so industry analysts are asking customers to settle for less with XDR; customers deserve a better method rather than a jump to one more category.
7. New-Scale SIEM Expands Exabeam Threat Coverage with Content Library and TDIR Use Cases | Blog Post
Organizations’ decision to purchase a security information and event management (SIEM) solution is driven by the need to solve a variety of challenges facing the business. One of those main drivers is to establish effective TDIR capabilities. In order to leverage a SIEM for TDIR, organizations require the ability to detect a wide array of threats with high fidelity and at scale, as well as respond to those threats. Security content is the key enabler within any SIEM or security operations platform to drive the entire TDIR experience from end to end. With the launch of New-Scale SIEM, Exabeam introduces many new functionalities related to content, as well as brand-new TDIR content.
Threat hunting takes a proactive approach to cybersecurity. A threat-hunting workflow starts with a hypothesis or strange occurrence, and requires asking questions of your data repository to detect and isolate advanced threats. These can stem from events that have appeared in the news, or even curiosity about a MITRE ATT&CK® tactic if you want to understand your security posture. Protecting your business from security threats on an ongoing basis requires threat hunting. By threat hunting, you can reduce the time between intrusion and discovery to minimize the damage from an attacker. Read the blog to learn about how Exabeam offers two starting points for threat hunting: Anomaly Search and Advanced Analytics.
Large numbers of enterprises, such as retail conglomerates, consumer banks, airlines, and insurance companies are joining the rush to set up data lakes for handling petabytes of security data and logs. But many executives and architects assume that once they finish setting up log sources, applying parsers, and arming their security operations analysts with reports, their data lake will deliver the goods. Alas, if only that were true! We’ve heard the war stories: internal politics on building versus buying, years to deploy, millions of dollars invested, and unfortunately, multiple security threats missed or detected too late. If you’re considering investing in a new security data lake or replacing your existing one, take a pause. Be mindful of how you prepare — especially how you design yours. To help with this exercise, here are six design considerations for your security data lake based on our interactions with successful Exabeam customers.

21. Preventing Insider Threats with UEBA | White Paper
Learn how a UEBA solution can detect insider threats early to prevent data loss. Insider threats are, most commonly, malicious activity against an organization that comes from users with legitimate access to an organization’s network, though the term can also refer to users who unintentionally cause harm to the business. Read the white paper and learn how to identify early patterns of risky behavior to prevent loss of sensitive data, detect signals originating in multiple places that point to a malicious insider, and deploy automation and machine learning to identify and evaluate insider threats.
Compromised credentials and insider threats
22. Detecting Compromised User Credentials | White Paper
Apply UEBA to detect malicious use of legitimate user credentials. Most of the biggest breaches have involved credential-based attacks — attackers leveraging stolen user credentials to masquerade as employees, gain access, escalate privileges, and obtain important data that should only be available to those with the highest level of access. Read the white paper and learn how a system that learns credential behaviors and characteristics detects attackers who look like legitimate employees going about their normal business, how to find attackers that switch identities, where credentials enable attack chain functions, and how UEBA helps cut through the noise of alerts to quickly identify and mitigate real threats.
23. How Exabeam Solves 7 Use Cases for Compromised Insiders | White Paper
Compromised insiders are one of the most difficult security risks for an enterprise to detect, escalate, and manage. This guide describes how Exabeam can identify and mitigate the potential risk of seven common compromised insider use cases: compromised credentials, lateral movement, privilege escalation, privileged activity, evasion, account manipulation, and data exfiltration.

Security teams demand better visibility into their environments that now support distributed teams and extend to the cloud. As organizations provide more access to data and collaboration tools, securing and making services available around the clock are critical priorities for security operations centers (SOCs) and their teams. Digital transformation has accelerated and will continue to advance, making it necessary for organizations to adopt cloud solutions. This landscape increases the attack surface for external and internal threats, putting SOC teams under pressure to detect potential threats from an overwhelming number of alerts. In this article, we will answer the 10 questions security operations managers should ask when assessing a cloud-delivered SIEM vendor.
No cybersecurity solution can prevent all attacks; however, some can detect intrusions and anomalous activity better than others. And while some SIEMs have better detection and analytics capabilities, many require specialized expertise or are too costly for ingesting, analyzing, and maintaining all the logs that might help your teams stitch together the story of what really happened in an attack. Combating these challenges requires a system equipped to find the true gems of discovery amidst the noise of alerts. There are a lot of SIEM vendors in the marketplace. How do you know you’re selecting the right fit for your organization? Read this guide to learn the three critical success factors when choosing a new SIEM.
