Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM Wins 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award

Company’s hybrid cloud and on-prem analytics-driven SIEM recognized for its ability to modernize security operations by speeding threat detection and automating response

LOS ANGELES – (BUSINESS WIRE) Gurucul, the leader in Next-Gen SIEM, XDR, UEBA and Identity & Access Analytics, today announced that Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM has been named the winner of a Platinum 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award from American Security Today. Recognized for dramatically increasing security operations visibility and efficiency, providing unparalleled advanced analytics, and automating threat detection and response, Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM is already considered a visionary in the space, according to the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management*.

“Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.”

American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program. It is designed to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness (Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders), as well as federal, state, and municipal government agencies, as they work to keep our nation secure.

“The ASTORS are a prestigious award – one that Gurucul has won in the past for our UEBA offering. Now more than ever, it’s critical that local and federal organizations have the most advanced security solutions at their disposal to counter sophisticated threat actors,” said Saryu Nayyar, CEO of Gurucul. “Today, most SIEM solutions are focused on log collection and correlation, which results in an overwhelming number of unprioritized alerts. SOC teams need, and are demanding, more. That’s why Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM is cloud-native, built for speed and scale, and helps to modernize security operations by delivering high-fidelity detection and automated response to threats all on a unified platform. Our team is excited that once again the ASTORS’ have recognized our work.”

Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM delivers a single unified platform to detect, investigate and respond to all cyber risks. For federal agencies, this includes predictive security analytics, detection of compromised accounts, data exfiltration, access abuse and insider threats, risk-based certifications for IAM (identify and access management), self-audits for security awareness, deterrence and detections, custom model development, and much more. It also offers flexible deployment with cloud-native, hybrid or easy on-prem implementations, and data pipelines with hundreds of agents, agentless or cloud connectors so agencies can ingest all legacy or proprietary data.

“ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” said AST’s Editorial Director Tammy Waitt.
