Security vendor expands presence in APAC

03 Mar 2016

Exabeam, the cyber security company specialising in user behaviour analytics (UBA), is expanding its channel programme and presence in Asia Pacific. The expansion into the region will be supported by a channel-led approach of providing customers with UBA to detect attackers moving through a network before data is compromised.

Harjith Prabhakaran has been appointed as product director for the Asia Pacific region and will work with the newly created channel distribution partners to establish a sales and support network. Distribution partners include M.Tech for Australia.

“Our entrance into the Asia Pacific region will help organisations identify and neutralise malicious intruders that may have otherwise gone unnoticed until it is too late,” says Nir Polak, Exabeam CEO.

“In an environment where the number of cyber security attacks are not only increasing but becoming more frequent, detection still remains elusive for enterprise IT security standards and we believe the solution is analysing big data to eliminate potential issues from the network,” says Polak.

Exabeam is a user behaviour analytics solution that leverages existing log, endpoint, and other data to detect advanced attacks and accelerate incident response.

The vendor’s session data model automates the work of security analysts by connecting individual security events and behaviour anomalies into a complete attack chain.

This dramatically reduces time to respond and uncovers attack impacts that would otherwise go unseen, according to the company. Exabeam Threat Hunter also provides analysts with the ability to search for user sessions that match any combination of activities and attributes.

Gartner estimates that the UBA market will grow from $50 million in 2015 to approximately $200 million by the end of 2017, a CAGR of 100%. Exabeam is well placed to capitalise on the UBA market with its out-performance of 2015 sales targets at over 150% of sales, strengthening of its executive team with key hires, establishment of Exabeam Labs and global channel programme, as well as its naming as a Cool Vendor in Security Intelligence by Gartner, and noted by Gartner in its UEBA Market Guide.
