According to the report, “customer feedback indicates that Gurucul’s machine learning models, risk scoring, and flexibility are strengths… Enterprises looking for a robust security analytics tool with strong security user behavior analytics (SUBA) and data protection should consider Gurucul”.

“Legacy SIEMs rely on rules or signatures to identify threats, and lack advanced data science techniques like machine learning and behavioral anomaly detection. Since all SIEM platforms charge separately for data infrastructures, this limits the number of use cases organizations can implement,” said Nilesh Dherange, chief technology officer for Gurucul. “That’s why so many customers are making Gurucul’s Security Analytics platform the centerpiece of their security operations. Our flexible deployment options, open and no cost support for big data, and more than 1000 use case specific machine learning models can detect the most stealth attacks including insider threats and account compromise.”

Gurucul received the highest possible scores from Forrester in the data architecture, deployment options, advanced detection techniques, risk scoring and prioritization, user behavior analytics, cloud security, data security and delivery/implementation model criteria.
