Securonix Partners With Cloudera to Provide Behavior-Based Insider Threat Detection and Mitigation in Hadoop Big Data Environments

User Behavior Analytics Empowers Cloudera-Based Enterprises to Quickly and Effectively Detect Insider and Advanced Persistent Threats

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2015) - Securonix announced today that it has joined Cloudera Connect and is certified on Cloudera Enterprise to deliver the industry's most powerful insider and advanced threat detection solution based on Cloudera Enterprise and Securonix' Security Analytics Platform.

Securonix Security Analytics is the industry's top security behavior analytics solution, providing unprecedented threat detection capabilities using the power of machine-based anomaly detection. Securonix with Cloudera expands this capability to big data environments for an even better threat detection capability combined with a long-term cost effective storage and analysis solution. The joint solution combines big data with purpose-built security analytics to deliver full context security monitoring and automated signature-less threat detection, visualization, risk scoring and workflow. With a powerful enriched context, anomaly detection and visualization engine, Securonix analyzes events, identity, access and transaction data to detect advanced threats and risk-ranks events for proactive security management.

"Organizations are realizing the promise of big data for security is not just in the amount of data collected but what you can get out of the data without hiring an army of security specialists with the knowledge of predicting the future. The Securonix-Cloudera solution delivers on this promise by detecting the most complex, unknown, and dangerous internal and external threats using the power of big data and purpose built security analytics," said Sachin Nayyar, CEO of Securonix.

Where current event monitoring technologies are focused on data collection, retention and compliance reporting at the perimeter, Securonix focuses on detecting advanced threat patterns in near real-time by analyzing billions of events generated in an organization's network, systems, devices and applications, and pinpointing suspicious events that require further investigation. The Securonix risk engine continuously risk-ranks threats, providing organizations with actionable intelligence to focus on those events that require their attention. Securonix provides a powerful, visually-driven forensic investigation workbench and integrated incident response systems that provide security practitioners with the ability to perform visual link analysis on events, accounts, users, access, hosts, applications, activities, systems and network addresses.

"Enterprise security teams are looking for new and innovative ways and capabilities to uncover and combat cyber-security threats," said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. "Securonix's ability to rely on the flexibility and scale of Cloudera Enterprise for data collection and analytics puts actionable intelligence into the hands of security analysts enabling them to be more productive and effective in identifying advance threat patterns."

The world's largest enterprises rely on Securonix as their go-to enterprise security analytics platform to detect abnormal behavior rapidly in user access, activities, transactions, data access and policy violations to get context beyond what traditional SIEM, DLP, log monitoring or IAM solutions are able to deliver. Securonix partnerships and alliances continue to grow its footprint throughout the global enterprise security market and the company has established strategic partnerships with the largest technology solution providers in the world.
