SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2017) - Exabeam, the market leader in User and Entity Behavior Analytics, is pleased to announce that its Advanced Analytics product won the award for Best Emerging Technology at the 2017 SC Magazine Awards. The award was presented Tuesday, February 14 during the SC Awards Dinner at the the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
This award win comes on the heels of continued innovation for Exabeam with its recently launched Security Intelligence Platform, an analytics-led solution for data collection, threat detection, and automated incident response. An early leader in the user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) market, Exabeam's 2016 sales were almost triple those of the prior year, with new global customers in the financial services, retail, energy, healthcare, and government industries.
"We're on a mission to disrupt the traditional security intelligence market, as the rise of identity-based and insider attacks via stolen or misused credentials requires a new approach," said Exabeam CEO, Nir Polak. "This esteemed recognition further empowers us to push the boundaries of traditional SIEM offerings to help organizations quickly identify and triage threats -- before damage is done."
"From advanced hacks to massive malvertising campaigns to a host of ransomware variations, 2016 showed that once again, cybercriminals are upping their game when it comes to exploiting today's businesses," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. "As a winner in the Excellence Award category of the SC Awards, Exabeam proved their ability to execute comprehensive security measures to protect the enterprise from data-stealing attacks."
