San Mateo, California, UNITED STATES

SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exabeam, the market leader in User and Entity Behavior Analytics and developer of the first next-generation SIEM, today announced that it has been named a 2017 Cybersecurity Leader by Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.

Cyber Defense's annual Top 25 Cybersecurity Leaders award recognizes organizations demonstrating next-generation innovation and leadership for real-world cybersecurity challenges. After many months of review by leading independent information security experts, Cyber Defense Magazine is pleased to have selected Exabeam as a winner for the second consecutive year.

"Exabeam's machine learning for advanced threat detection is a powerful cyber defense weapon for a cyber defense and incident response arsenal," said Gary S. Miliefsky, Executive Producer, Cyber Defense Magazine.

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 more than 40 new employees in 2017, as well as the growth of global customers in the financial services, retail, energy, healthcare, and government industries.

“The growing number of cyber attacks can feel unstoppable, but machine learning and a focus on user behavior can help business leaders stay one step ahead of malicious attackers,” said Exabeam CEO, Nir Polak. “We are honored to receive this recognition because it validates our commitment to provide our clients with the most innovative behavior-based security intelligence to diagnose and prevent damaging security breaches.”

This is the sixth award recognition for Exabeam in 2017. The company was recently named SC Media’s Best Emerging Technology, CRN’s Big Data 100, CRN’s Security 100, CRN’s Emerging Vendors and Information Management’s Most Promising UBA Solution.
