Gurucul is a Top 3 SIEM

2022 Gartner® Critical Capabilities for SIEM has Spoken

While the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM is critical in evaluating vendors, according to Gartner: “As an essential companion to the Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ), this [Critical Capabilities] methodology provides deeper insight into providers’ product and service offerings by extending the Magic Quadrant analysis.”1

In the 2022 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM for SIEM2 the focus relates to the overall vendor offering SIEM, which includes sales strategy, market share, market awareness, inquiries to Gartner, etc. As Gurucul is challenging previous generation stalwarts by offering stronger capabilities, we have been positioned the furthest to the right, beyond any other SIEM solution, as a visionary, which highlights our innovation and strong product offerings.

Gurucul Next Generation SIEM

Gartner has now released the companion 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management report. This report is purely focused on the products and services and how they meet the needs of the current and emerging markets based on Gartner’s analysis, including that of the MQ.

Disrupting the Market Based on Innovation, Not Marketing Hype

When we talk about disrupting the market at Gurucul, we really mean building the capabilities and innovations based on both a wide breadth of capabilities to address teams of varying size and skills, but also comprehensive features that can be used by security teams needing more advanced functionality. This requires introducing capabilities that are free of marketing fluff and not just introducing features to meet a checkbox versus providing real customer value. We admit we are not in the leader’s quadrant yet. Our focus is on building products and solutions focused on delivering advanced Threat Detection, Investigation and Response (TDIR) solutions versus overspending on marketing. This has positioned Gurucul in the Top 3 for SIEM based on the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for SIEM Scoring.

While many other vendors claim pieces or surface level capabilities, Gurucul delivers security solutions based on industry trends, market dynamics, and requirements of organizations, as research by organizations like Gartner.

The Gurucul Next Generation SIEM is available as part of our Security Analytics Platform. The platform is available as SaaS, on- premises, cloud-hosted, VM or in a container and can support complex deployments across geographies and/or multi-cloud architectures.

Our platform is modular by design and can provide different capabilities that can be carved out or bundled. While we have 100s of integrations with leading vendors, we do offer SOAR, XDR, UEBA, Identity and Access analytics, Network Traffic Analysis (NTA), Endpoint Analytics, insider threat detection, medical device monitoring, a security data lake option, and even full case management.

Our focus has been on providing the widest breadth and depth of analytics along with a dynamic risk scoring engine to accelerate detection, prioritize investigations, and providing necessary context and risk prioritization for helping security teams with responding to attacks.

Addressing the Most Difficult and Destructive Attack Campaigns

We have developed a mature set of Identity and access-based threat detection and contextual capabilities to combine behavioral analytics with access rules and policies. We have been able to drastically improve TDIR for the hardest classes of attack campaigns to identify and respond to rapidly: Credential-Based attacks, Insider Threats, and Emerging/Unknown attacks.
