DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2016) - Securonix, the industry leading innovator of behavioral analytics solutions that predict, prevent, detect and contain cyber attacks, insider threats and fraud, announced today that its big data security analytics platform SNYPR™ has won the Gold 2016 ASTOR Award for Best Big Data Analytics Solution from American Security Today.
The ASTOR Award honors Securonix for its outstanding product development achievements and exciting new technologies that address growing threats to our homeland security.
Government agencies and the organizations that work with them are collecting, archiving and storing massive volumes of data in repositories, but haven't been able to derive security value from it. SNYPR was purpose-built to translate the billions of events from hundreds of different data sources that organizations generate daily into accurate risk intelligence and real-time threat detection.
SNYPR enables the agencies that protect our country, and their partners, to detect insider threats, privilege abuse, data exfiltration, advanced persistent threats, and "hard-to-see" breaches involving sophisticated malware. It harnesses the power of big data and puts actionable intelligence into the hands of security leaders, enabling them to combat cyber threats and reduce risk to their organization with fewer resources and lower costs.
SNYPR delivers the proven power of Securonix analytics with the speed, scale, and affordable, long-term storage of Hadoop in a single, out-of-the box solution.
The world's top government organizations, as well as the Fortune 1000, rely on Securonix's industry-leading platform for security analytics that provides advanced monitoring and threat detection capabilities.
"Securonix is one of a prestigious handful of companies invited into the halls of the Fortune 1000, Federal agencies, think tanks, and even briefings on Capitol Hill," said Sachin Nayyar, CEO of Securonix.
Securonix's impact in the homeland security space is not happenstance: The foremost thought leaders in homeland security, cyber security and intelligence are on the Securonix team. Its strategic advisory board includes former NSA director Mike McConnell, former secretary of homeland security Michael Chertoff, former chief Information officer of Bank of America Patrick Gorman, and former NSA deputy director Chris Inglis.
