Company’s Entity Analytics recognized in the 2018 Security – IoT category
SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 12, 2018 – Exabeam, the next-gen SIEM company, today announced that CRN,® a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Exabeam Entity Analytics as a finalist in the 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Awards’ Security – IoT category. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges.
With more than 8 billion IoT devices being used all around the world, understanding behavior is critical to preventing a security breach, especially because these devices are vulnerable due to default credentials, out-of-date software and/or lack of management. Exabeam’s Entity Analytics provides the most in-depth security for IoT machines and devices by analyzing their behavior. Key features include entity behavior analysis, prebuilt incident timelines, end-to-end network visibility, automatic IP mapping, and rule and signature-free detection. Unlike competitive solutions, Entity Analytics automatically develops timelines of security incidents and tracks lateral movements without requiring a lot of manual effort. In addition, it utilizes machine learning and behavioral modeling to build a fuller picture of a device by also analyzing the input from hundreds of IT and security products by measuring communication patterns from IPs, ports and protocols.
“With the proliferation of smart devices in businesses and homes comes a new wave of cyberthreats that most security teams simply aren’t equipped to handle on their own. By analyzing device behavior collated from VPN, cloud applications, email services, firewalls, NetFlow, Configuration Management Databases (CMDB) and other specific IoT sensors, Exabeam’s Entity Analytics can help organizations detect even the subtlest, out-of-character movements and identify malicious intrusions,” said Ted Plumis, vice president of Channels, Business and Corporate Development at Exabeam. “This top recognition from CRN Tech Innovators further validates the hard work our team pours into protecting our customers against even the most advanced attacks and adversaries.”
“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”
