Gurucul Continues to Innovate and be Furthest to the Right in the 2024 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM

As the majority of the SIEM industry becomes stagnant, we believe the report validates that Gurucul continues to go beyond other vendors to continuously deliver innovations. Gurucul meets the evolving requirements of customers by combating threat actors attempting to advance their attacks via technologies such as AI to breach organizations. 

The 2024 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is now live, and Gurucul has been named a Visionary for the third year in a row and the second year in a row where we are the most visionary. In fact, Gurucul continues to innovate beyond any other competitor in the completeness of vision across the enitre Magic Quadrant (MQ).

 In the report, Gartner praised our strengths: 

  • Behavioral detection capabilities: With extensive built-in intelligence and tuning capabilities, Gurucul’s SIEM allows clients to build out custom advanced detections involving users, data and other objects.
  • Flexible and extensible architecture: Gurucul’s multicloud architecture lets clients mix and match cloud data sources and back-end storage options, which may save the cost of data transport or duplication.
  • Risk profiling: Gurucul’s risk profiling system automatically creates groups of like objects and scores them against baseline for simplified threat identification and automatic incident prioritization.

Why We Believe Gurucul Continues to be a Visionary Furthest to the Right

“Other SIEM solutions continue to deliver poor visibility, an unacceptable number of false positives, do little to improve SOC efficiency and have become too costly as data requirements scale…” – Saryu Nayyar, CEO, Gurucul

Being a visionary, Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM is disrupting the status quo that is prevalent in the SIEM market. We have built AI-driven Dynamic Security Analytics Platform called REVEAL that offers differentiated capabilities to optimize every facet of the threat detection & response lifecycle. Moreover, our REVEAL platform is the only cost-optimized security analytics platform guaranteed to save you 50% compared to traditional SIEMS. In essence, Gurucul’s REVEAL platform not only unlocks the full potential of data analytics but also offers a cost-effective and manageable solution to the escalating challenges of modern cybersecurity.

The platform is built on these six pillars to provide a true Next-Generation SIEM.

Open and Flexible

An open and flexible architecture and features means you can deploy in any environment with the full capabilities the platform offers and use any data lake, ingest any data, and integrate with your existing technology stack, all while maintaining the ability to rapidly scale. Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM can operate as a 100% cloud-native solution within AWS, Azure, GCP, and cloud environments as a pure SaaS solution or seamlessly as a hybrid deployment, and on-premises equally.

Intelligent Data Fabric powered by Gurucul Data Optimizer

With data expected to grow over 180% in the next 5 years, which is over 5x customer capacity as of today, organizations are looking for ways to reduce and optimize storage costs. Gurucul Data Optimizer helps reduce data costs significantly and fork data to multiple endpoints including SIEMs and low-cost storage. For security teams, our native data streaming normalizes, filters, and parses any data source or format and extracts security-relevant context for optimized ingestion costs and improved detections.

Purpose-Built Content

Gurucul provides a builder’s security analytics platform that is loaded with content for fast time to value for those who need it to work immediately or can be customized to your unique business needs. We offer over 10,000 pieces of purpose-built content that start detecting and reporting threats out of the box. Modify them as needed with a simple drop-down UI, no data science or machine learning expertise is required. Content types include built-in dashboards, widgets, reports, ML models, pipelines, integrations, playbooks, most common queries, MITRE and other compliance framework mappings and much more. Gurucul includes hundreds of playbooks with workflows for automating incident response actions. It does not stop there. Customers can customize existing machine learning models and associated workflows that lead to targeted playbooks or create their own custom playbooks to address their specific challenges and concerns before our learning capabilities adapt to our continuous findings.

Advanced Analytics

With Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM, security teams can immediately detect risky behaviors and apply advanced ML-driven analytics in real-time to drive high-fidelity detections, decrease false positives and find zero-day threats on day one. Gurucul hones in on true positives with our massive library of ML models that have been developed and refined for more than a decade. It starts with our award-winning and highly accurate User and Entity Behavior analytics to identify real-time risks that work with identity, network, endpoint, and cloud data to accurately identify attacks. Our models can be chained together (called model chaining) for the highest fidelity detections that confirm, filter and cross-validate alerts, and find the unknown unknowns, surfacing what matters most.

Dynamic Risk Engine

Gurucul has incorporated a full enterprise dynamic risk engine that works across our unified ML-based analytics to quantify cyber security risk in real-time so you respond quickly to the greatest threats. It works across our unified ML-based analytics to quantify security risk with a normalized 0-100 score that also incorporates threat intelligence, and delivers a real-time prioritized view of business risk, so that you can respond quickly to the greatest threats. It generates a single, consolidated risk score for any user, entity, application, or asset across all enterprise telemetry, including non-security related data. Unlike static, black-box risk models, Gurucul’s dynamic risk engine is easily customized to fit your risk tolerance requirements. 

Powered By Artificial Intelligence

As an innovator, Gurucul has pioneered implementing trained ML and AI in our solutions for many years. We have extended our AI to further combat the most advanced threats and accelerate investigations and response time with Gurucul’s native, secure Generative AI. It works in multiple ways to improve analyst efficiency and prevent breaches without compromising data privacy. Analysts can leverage its natural language search and query feature on public sources, and more important, on enterprise data to streamline investigations and hunting. Gurucul’s AI is constantly improving nearly every facet of the platform. It works behind the scenes improving detections using adversarial AI counter techniques and suggesting response playbooks.
