Exabeam Announces Expansion into the UK
Company names Satisnet and Somerford Associates as inaugural UK channel partners
November 18, 2015
SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Exabeam, the leader in user behavior analytics (UBA) for security, today announced the expansion of its channel program and the opening of a new office in London, U.K. The expansion into the U.K. is supported by Exabeam’s channel-led approach of providing customers with UBA to detect hackers moving through a network before data is compromised. Several channel partners, including Satisnet and Somerford Associates, are leading Exabeam’s entrance into the European market.
As made evident by the recent security breaches of TalkTalk and Think W3 Limited, leading enterprises across Europe struggle to defend against modern cyberthreats. With a massive shortage in cybersecurity experts, chief security officers (CSOs) and chief information security officers (CISOs) are looking for technology solutions that maximize their defenses against hackers. Exabeam’s self-learning solution extends enterprises’ security teams by detecting advanced attacks, prioritizing incidents and guiding effective response.
“We increasingly see CSOs leveraging channel partners’ expertise to help make major cybersecurity purchasing decisions,” explained Exabeam Vice President of Channels, Business and Corporate Development Ted Plumis. “Exabeam’s massive growth in the U.S. has been fueled by our strategy of working closely with partners. Expanding that model to the U.K. is the next evolution of Exabeam working with the channel to help protect as many enterprises as possible from threats.”
“Our IBM QRadar customers are all looking for a solution that will extend their knowledge of log data beyond traditional security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities,” explained John McCann, executive vice president at Satisnet. “As the leading IBM channel partner in the U.K., we know Exabeam can help our customers apply insights about the severity of a potential breach to existing SIEM data.”
“As an established Splunk partner in the U.K., our customers express a need for an advanced UBA solution daily,” said Andy Davies, managing director at Somerford Associates. “It’s critical for organizations to access insights into the behaviors of their users, and with Exabeam we can deliver that data and help identify hackers using stolen credentials.”
In addition to continuing to accelerate the growth of its UBA solution in the U.K. and respond to growing customer demands, Exabeam will immediately focus on building its European team. Exabeam’s U.K. expansion comes on the heels of its recent $25 million Series B funding round led by Icon Ventures.
