Gurucul will continue its unparalleled, generous spend on research and development, along with a focus on data science and threat research to continue trailblazing the industry to solve for real time detection and automated response for complex and hybrid enterprises,” said Saryu Nayyar, Gurucul CEO. “We are experiencing hypergrowth with new customer’s globally and managed service providers, displacing both legacy and other next-gen vendors. We believe this growth is attributed to other SIEM solutions producing an overwhelming number of unprioritized alerts, which leads to chasing false positives, requiring an army to run operationally, and having unpredictable data volume-based pricing escalating costs and deterring customers from getting contextual insights to secure the enterprise. Gurucul’s ability to automate collection, correlation, and threat detection with advanced link-event analysis, along with out-of-the-box threat content, provides context, precision, and confidence to automate response actions securing cloud and hybrid environments. Gurucul’s success speaks to our ability to solve these problems most effectively with fast time to value and highest ROI.

Gurucul offers a cloud-native, unified, and modular platform for consolidating core security operations center (SOC) solutions into a single pane of glass aligned with the evolving needs of the modern enterprise threat landscape. Gurucul Analytics-Driven Next Generation SIEM can quickly identify and address new, emerging, and unknown threats that evade rule-based ML solutions. It drastically reduces overall operational expenses while improving security operations through greater data ingestion, reduced threat detection time, automation of manual processes, and improved analyst efficiency. It offers the following critical capabilities:

  • Ingest, interpret, and extract security meta data from any device, application or cloud, supported by asset-based licensing and a true self-training machine learning engine.
  • Go beyond other “cloud-supported” solutions to work 100% in any cloud environment and detect dangerous threat activity that is purposely spread across multi-cloud environments to obscure the scope of the overall attack campaign.
  • Detect threats in real-time automatically out-of-the-box with included threat content for immediate time to value.
  • Gather threat-specific contextual information based on Endpoint, Log, Identity-Access, IoT, Poly-Cloud, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), and DLP analytics (both network and email) together in real-time to accelerate detection and enrich context for the SOC.
  • Leverage an industry-leading large library of customizable machine learning models that are unique in being open and transparent versus black box and obscured with the intuitive ability to build your own using Gurucul Studio™.
  • Apply risk scoring across all telemetry and analytics for prioritization of investigations and response.
  • Accelerate remediation through choice of our SOAR with risk and context driven dynamic playbooks that are targeted and high-fidelity, or working with 3rd party SOAR solutions.
