Read the Forrester Consulting Total Economic Impact™ Study
ROI over three years, payback in under six months.
Transforming Security Operations with Exabeam Fusion SIEM
Exabeam commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ study to examine the measurable benefits six organizations achieved with Exabeam Fusion SIEM.
In this study, you’ll read about how the Exabeam Fusion SIEM behavioral analytics-driven approach transformed Security Operations at these organizations by delivering a quantifiable return with ROI as high as 245%, and payback in under six months.
Benefit: Efficient Security Operations
The combined organizations were able to improve their threat coverage by ingesting additional data sources while increasing the number of incidents they could investigate.
Benefit: Reduced attack dwell times
Understanding user behavior is key to detecting compromised accounts. The five organizations had very little visibility of insider threats before Exabeam. However, after deploying, they all gained a new ability to recognize and respond to these threats, resulting in a measurable return.
Benefit: Deploying a cloud-delivered solution
Cloud-hosted solutions are easier to manage and maintain, and offload systems maintenance to the provider. In the Forrester Consulting Total Economic Impact Study, all of the organizations reported tangible value using the cloud-delivered Exabeam Fusion SIEM.
The Forrester study identified many other unquantifiable benefits —
from better SLAs to improved employee churn, and more.
“When evaluating tools my first two questions are, does your tool align to the NIST framework? Does it integrate with Exabeam? Exabeam became the foundation of our entire security program.”

245% Return on Investment (ROI)
A project’s expected return in percentage terms. ROI is calculated by dividing net benefits (benefits less costs) by costs.
$3.73M Present Value (PV)
The present or current value of (discounted) cost and benefit estimates given at an interest rate (the discount rate). The PV of costs and benefits feed into the total NPV of cash flows.
$2.65M Net Present Value (NPV)
The present or current value of (discounted) future net cash flows given an interest rate (the discount rate). A positive project NPV normally indicates that the investment should be made, unless other projects have higher NPVs.
Less Than 6-Month Payback Period
The break-even point for an investment. This is the point in time at which net benefits (benefits minus costs) equal initial investment or cost.
