2020 Security Excellence Awards – Security Automation Award

According to Computing, automation brings many benefits to IT teams, massively reducing their workload and enabling them to focus on complex tasks, rather than constantly fighting fires. This award is for the most compelling and innovative security solution using artificial intelligence, machine learning or other types of automation.

“Automation can bring great benefits to security teams from reducing alert fatigue to tracking and responding to threats,” said Computing Editor John Leonard. “Gurucul has a comprehensive solution with a broad basis of analysis and coverage, and the use of machine learning is a very sensible approach to lifting the burden from human analysts.”

“Being named Security Automation Product of the Year by Computing is a great honor,” said Saryu Nayyar CEO of Gurucul. “The Gurucul GRA platform’s combination of advanced security analytics and machine learning enables customers to identify hard to detect threats including account compromise and insider attacks before it’s too late.”
