Unified Security and Risk Analytics Platform was Named Best Product for Insider Threat Prevention

SAN FRANCISCO, RSA Conference – Feb.  28, 2020– Gurucul, a leader in unified security and risk analytics technology for on-premises and the cloud, today announced that its Gurucul Unified Security & Risk Analytics platform was named Best Product for Insider Threat Prevention in the Cyber Defense InfoSec Awards for 2020 presented at this year’s RSA Conference by Cyber Defense Magazine. Winners are featured in the 8th annual special edition of the magazine distributed electronically at the show.

Gurucul is demonstrating the Unified Security Analytics product this week at RSA Conference in booth #2027.

“We are thrilled to select Gurucul for the Best Product award for Insider Threat Prevention from among a field of 3,200 security companies in this year’s InfoSec Awards program,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. “Gurucul has developed a truly innovative approach to detecting insider threats from trusted employees, partners, consultants and contractors.”

Gurucul Unified Security and Risk Analytics, which combines SIEM, UEBA, SOAR, Intelligent Threat Hunting, Log Aggregation and Network Traffic Analysis capabilities into one holistic product, helps organizations predict, detect and prevent insider threats by ingesting and analyzing massive amounts of data from virtually any source, including network, IT systems, cloud platforms, applications, IoT, and more.  Its comprehensive view of user/entity behaviors detects abnormal behaviors and activities indicative of security threats.

“Detecting threats from insiders with access to company resources and data is one of the most difficult security challenges organizations face today, as most organizations default to trust and productivity,” said Saryu Nayyar, CEO of Gurucul. “Gurucul shifts the paradigm to trust but verify, using a powerful combination of in-depth, real-time intelligence that not only detects malicious actions from rogue insiders but also from outsiders who compromise insider accounts.”
