Exabeam Joins FireEye Cyber Security Coalition
June 30, 2016
SAN MATEO, CA–(Marketwired – Jun 30, 2016) – Exabeam, a market leader in user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), today announced its partnership with FireEye, as a member of the FireEye® Cyber Security Coalition (CSC) — an ecosystem designed to simplify customers’ complex security environments via the intelligence-led FireEye Global Threat Management Platform. Joint customers will benefit from enhanced threat detection and faster, more efficient investigation and response.
As threats become more complex, long-running, and difficult to detect, collaboration across specialized technology providers will help organizations innovate and deliver cutting-edge solutions in the fight against cybercrime.
Exabeam applies machine learning to create a baseline of normal behavior for each employee or contractor on a corporate network. It then compares each user’s activity against that normal baseline to determine if particular actions are risky, even if that user switches devices, accounts, or IP addresses. The product then presents a timeline showing all activities, from logon to logoff, as well as the associated risk. Security analysts can see very quickly and easily which users might be compromised, as well as which systems they accessed. The Exabeam platform makes full use of the output of FireEye’s leading security technologies, to build comprehensive pictures of user activity.
“Attacks today span networks, endpoints, email, and other systems,” said Nir Polak, Exabeam CEO. “The combination of Exabeam UEBA and FireEye’s leading security solutions enables customers to have a complete picture of risky activity across their IT environments.”
Exabeam’s user and entity behavior analytics solution leverages existing log data to quickly detect advanced attacks, prioritize incidents and guide effective response. The company’s Stateful User Tracking™ automates the work of security analysts by resolving individual security events and behavioral anomalies into a complete attack chain. This dramatically reduces response times and uncovers attack impacts that would otherwise go unseen. Built by seasoned security experts and enterprise IT veterans from Imperva, ArcSight and Sumo Logic, Exabeam is headquartered in San Mateo, California and is privately funded by Aspect Ventures, Icon Ventures, Investor Shlomo Kramer and Norwest Venture Partners.
