Securonix Partners With UnitedLex to Offer Threat Monitoring and Incident Response Services

Innovators in User Behavior Analytics Reduce Technology Adoption Barriers

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 29, 2016) -  Securonix, the pioneer in user behavior and security analytics and one of the fastest growing cyber security companies, announced that it has selected likeminded UnitedLex, a global provider of Cyber Risk Solutions and Managed Security Services, as a Securonix-certified provider. Securonix will resell UnitedLex threat monitoring and incident response services to its clients to ease the adoption and enhance the effectiveness of the Securonix Security Analytics Platform.

Darren Gaeta, Vice President of Alliances and Channels, explained that UnitedLex's risk-based services model and its ability to harness and operationalize a company's institutional intelligence align perfectly with the Securonix mission.

"We are enjoying rapid adoption of our security platform. Yet, some resource-constrained organizations require holistic solutions that not only enable the detection of unknown cyber threats, but also augment staff and ensure they are realizing the full value of their investments at implementation. UnitedLex is unique in its ability help us meet that need," said Gaeta.

Securonix is the maker of the leading security analytics platform, which provides real-time, behavior-based analytics at scale across network devices, applications, databases, user activities and hosts. Using sophisticated anomaly detection techniques that track user, account, and system behavior, Securonix automatically detects advanced attacks including insider threats, data exfiltration and advanced persistent threats, as well as "hard-to-see" intrusions in which attackers leverage compromised employee login credentials.

UnitedLex has developed a distributed, "intelligent" Security Operation Center, or iSOC. The iSOC delivers unparalleled security monitoring services and strategic security solutions through its world-class, ISO 27001-certified infrastructure, data centers and redundant global systems combined with the best and brightest analysts around the world. By relying on the iSOC, a business may outsource highly specialized security functions at a fraction of the cost of the traditional SOC model without comprising. Additionally, the UnitedLex iSOC includes rapid incident response services delivered by experienced cyber investigators and forensic engineers. Whether assigning a simple employee theft issue or an advanced network intrusion, the UnitedLex Incident Response team offers full support -- both remotely and on-site as needed. 

"UnitedLex leverages advanced technologies, such as Securonix, to apply our clients' institutional intelligence in a practical and scalable way," explained Jason Straight, Sr. VP of Cyber Risk Solutions at UnitedLex. "As a service provider that emphasizes the use of human intelligence and business context to combat cyber risk at the 'human layer', we are pleased to join forces with Securonix and assist companies in using this industry-first behavior anomaly detection to expose unknown and insider threats."
