“The future of enterprise security will be based on using machine learning to detect threats that appear to be legitimate behavior across hybrid enterprise environments that span the datacenter and cloud. The Gurucul user behavior analytics platform provides these advanced capabilities and distinguishes itself from traditional UBA products by using identity access intelligence to also eliminate risks within a company’s identity attack surface,” said Steve Moscarelli. “Given Gurucul’s ability to detect insider threats, account compromise and data exfiltration that evade other security defenses, it’s not surprising the company has established a blue-chip customer base. I look forward to building out Gurucul’s sales team and infrastructure to capture significant share of the UBA market in North America.”
Gurucul is changing the way enterprises protect themselves against insider threats, account compromise and data exfiltration on-premises and in the cloud. The company’s user behavior analytics and identity access intelligence technology uses machine learning anomaly detection and predictive risk-scoring algorithms to reduce the attack surface for accounts, unnecessary access rights and privileges, and to identify, predict and prevent breaches. Gurucul technology is used globally by organizations to detect insider threats, cyber fraud, IP theft, external attacks and more. The company is based in Los Angeles.
