Gurucul CEO Named Thought Leader of the Year by SC Media

Saryu Nayyar Recognized with 2018 Reboot Leadership Award for Pioneering Concept of Identity as a Security Perimeter and User Behavior Analytics

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gurucul, a leader in behavior based security and fraud analytics technology for on-premises and the cloud, today announced that its CEO Saryu Nayyar has been recognized as a Thought Leader in SC Media’s Reboot Leadership Awards 2018. The annual awards, from the publisher of SC Magazine, honor executive and professional leaders for their unique, inventive and inspiring contributions that improve security, shape the industry, provide thought leadership, and otherwise have a positive impact on cybersecurity.

“I’m honored to be recognized as a thought leader by SC Media for my work in raising awareness for identity as a threat vector and Gurucul’s innovations in behavior analytics, which are helping shape the future of security,” said Saryu Nayyar, CEO of Gurucul. “We are committed to pushing the boundaries of innovation in behavior analytics to detect advanced security threats and provide the context and risk metrics needed to automate front line security controls.”

Saryu founded and built Gurucul into a market leader based on her belief that analytics using machine learning can be applied to identities – users and entities – for the purpose of monitoring behaviors and detecting unknown threats. In April she published the second edition of her book “Borderless Behavior Analytics – Who’s Inside? What’re They Doing?”, which includes contributions from 12 of the world’s top CISOs and CIOs who share their insights on how identity has become an emerging threat vector that must be managed, especially as traditional security perimeters protecting enterprises vanish. The book explores the growing importance of behavior analytics, machine learning and big data to combat advanced cyber threats.

Saryu has spent several years in senior positions with EY’s national security practice, and was a founding member of Vaau, an enterprise role-management start-up acquired by Sun Microsystems/Oracle. An advocate for women in technology, Saryu was named a 2017 Entrepreneurial Winning Woman by EY.
