Exabeam vs. Securonix: Four Ways to Compare and Evaluate
When it comes to securing your organization, the right security information and event management (SIEM) solution can make all the difference. Exabeam and Securonix are two popular options on the market, but when it comes to delivering better security outcomes, Exabeam comes out on top. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at four ways Exabeam outshines Securonix, and why Exabeam Fusion is the superior SIEM choice.
- Visibility for analysts: One of the most important aspects of a SIEM solution is the ability to provide full visibility to analysts. Securonix falls short in this area; it would take a Securonix analyst approximately 700 queries to make one Exabeam Smart TimelinesTM — and that’s without even considering the limitations of their threat modeling. This is a significant drawback, as Smart Timelines are automatically created for every user and entity in the system, providing analysts with a comprehensive view of all activity on the network. Exabeams Smart Timelines allow analysts to quickly and easily identify anomalies, making it much faster and easier to detect and respond to threats.
- Use case coverage: Another major difference between Exabeam and Securonix lies in use case coverage. Securonix’s standard use cases (Insider Threat and Cyber Threat Analysis) fail to cover thorough investigation and response, while Exabeam use case packages span the entire threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) workflow. This includes detection rules and models, investigation and response checklists, and automated playbooks with pre-built checklists to guide consistency in response. With Exabeam, organizations have access to a complete set of tools, processes, and resources to protect their networks, whereas Securonix falls short in this area. Exabeam also offers Outcomes Navigator to map log quality to use cases, threats, the MITRE ATT&CK® framework, and contains a full-cycle opportunity to go back and update log sources to capture all the right fields in support of threat detection accuracy.
- Pricing: Securonix pricing can be a significant disadvantage for organizations, as it includes hidden search fees and slower query times. Exabeam, on the other hand, offers transparent consumption-based pricing with no hidden fees passed on to customers. This makes it much easier for organizations to budget for their security needs, and eliminates the risk of unexpected costs. Additionally, Exabeam query times are much faster than Securonix, allowing organizations to quickly and easily identify and respond to threats.
- White-labeling: Securonix white-labeling hides platform complexity prior to purchase. Securonix claims they are working on a native security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) solution, but for now, they still white-label their SOAR capabilities from CyberSponse. This can make it difficult for organizations to fully understand the capabilities of the solution, and can lead to disappointment after the purchase. In contrast, Exabeam offers Incident Responder with Turnkey Playbooks that maximize SOC efficiency, allowing even junior analysts to automate actions and ensure consistent investigation workflows. This not only makes it easier for organizations to respond to threats, but it also helps to ensure that investigations are consistent and effective.
Exabeam delivers better security outcomes than Securonix in several key areas. With full visibility for analysts, complete use case coverage, transparent pricing, and efficient incident response capabilities, Exabeam Fusion is the clear SIEM choice for organizations looking to protect their networks and data.
