Gurucul Analytics-Driven SIEM

Going Beyond Conventional SIEM with Advanced Analytics

Conventional SIEM technologies focus on Events, providing filtering, rules, and basic analytics to display events. Unfortunately, most SIEM products still deluge the Security Operations team with a flood of information, which makes it hard to prioritize events by their actual risk. It is a matter of perspective. The conventional SIEM paradigm is to present Events and Incidents, as identified by rules-based analytics, without context.

Gurucul takes a different approach. Ours is a highly versatile beyond Next-Generation SIEM powered by the Gurucul Risk AnalyticsTM platform. By leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning on massive volumes of data in a vendor agnostic data lake, Gurucul delivers all the features expected from a SIEM platform and adds capabilities that no conventional SIEM platform can match. Gurucul brings context to an otherwise siloed security picture by correlating and analyzing events across the entire environment to deliver a consolidated view of the entire threat situation.

Gurucul SIEM scored higher in architecture and deployment, and analytics. Gurucul offers native UEBA as well as the customization and creation of analytics with its STUDIO module.

  • Provide full drill down capabilities into events without leaving the interface
  • Automatically map policies and anomaly models to global regulatory frameworks (PCI, HITECH, HIPAA, ISO27000, SOX, MITRE ATT&CK and more)
  • Employ contextual search to review alerts & violations filtered by regulations
  • Use 500+ of out-of-the-box reports
  • Automate report scheduling and distribution
  • Enjoy long-term raw log storage

Benefits of Gurucul Analytics-Driven SIEM

Improve Threat Detection

Gurucul Advanced Analytics automates threat detection with out-of-the-box Machine Learning models that detect anomalous activity on deployment. Your security analysts can dedicate more time analyzing high priority threats and less time on tedious tasks, without the need to manually piece evidence together into incident timelines, improving threat detection and analyst productivity.

Automate Responses

Gurucul’s high-fidelity alerts deliver the confidence you need to automate responses with security orchestration and automation. Leverage built-in playbooks or use out-of-the-box integrations with popular SOAR products. Enable analysts of all levels to run automated response playbooks that replace manual, error prone processes to ensure timely, consistent results and improve response times.

Decrease Logging Costs

Gurucul offers predictable entity-based pricing that provides a low-cost option for unlimited log storage—decreasing logging costs. Unlimited logging enables analysts to collect and quickly search all of your data sources in a central repository without making compromises due to lack of scalability or budget.

Extend Security To The Cloud

Gurucul provides pre-built cloud connectors to easily ingest logs from dozens of popular cloud-based services like Salesforce, O365, AWS, Google Apps for work, extending security monitoring into cloud services and infrastructure to prevent security blind spots.
