Key Platform Differentiators



Gurucul offers the Unified Security and Risk Analytics platform with multiple deployment options, including Cloud, virtualized, and appliance form factors.  USRA is platform agnostic for data storage, meaning organizations can use whatever big-data storage platform they choose rather than be bound to a proprietary database.



Gurucul can ingest data from virtually any source through its connector framework, including Flat File formats (CEF, CSV, XML, JSON, etc.), Relational Database, real time streams and API’s. Gurucul USRA can also accept activity data as a real-time stream.

Top Financial Services Use Cases

Insider Threat Detection & Deterrence:
Insider threats can be especially difficult to counter in the Financial Services sector, but Gurucul Unified Security and Risk Analytics (URSA) leverages machine learning and a sea of correlated security information to find anomalies in user behavior that can indicate an internal threat. Trained on a massive database of real-world incidents, and constantly learning from the environment it’s protecting, URSA can identify risks before they become breaches.

Fraud Detection and Prevention:
Identify the behaviors associated with fraudulent transactions, whether they are from customer accounts or internal users.

Privileged Access Abuse:
Detect anomalous access to sensitive data which are not consistent with normal employee behavior (misusing permissions to perform malicious activity). These accounts are prone to social engineering and other theft techniques.

Regulatory Compliance:
Compliance with financial services regulations requires a broad range of tools and a coordinated approach that is facilitated by a unified security and risk analytics system.

Identity Protection:
Protect customer identity information and recognize attempts to use stolen identity information to create fraudulent accounts.
