Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2015) - Securonix is meeting the growing global demand for sophisticated cyber security threat detection through the expansion of its presence to the EMEA market, the company announced today. The industry leader in behavior-based security analytics couples the latest advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence with advanced anomaly detection techniques to rapidly detect insider threats, fraud and cyber attacks. 

"Securonix is already the fastest growing player in the North American security analytics and intelligence market," said Sachin Nayyar, CEO at Securonix. "Enterprises are struggling to identify serious insider and targeted cyber attacks with their existing signature-based security tools. Securonix is addressing this critical need by delivering an automated signature-less detection capability that leverages their existing investments while providing a rapid out-of-the-box capability."

To support its rapid growth, Securonix has been putting a major focus on the recruitment of highly skilled IT security industry veterans and subject matter experts in the behavior analytics, insider threat and cyber security fields. The company is also announcing that it has hired John Handelaar to lead its continued expansion into the EMEA market.

"I'm excited to join a company with this depth of thought leadership and expertise. Its market traction in North America speaks for itself and I look forward to leading its growth in the EMEA region," said Handelaar.

Handelaar brings more than 25 years of experience in building strategic customer relationships and sales leadership. His experience in sales and sales management roles with innovative technology leaders includes Boole & Babbage (acquired by BMC), Access360 (acquired by IBM), Waveset (acquired by Sun), Passlogix (acquired by Oracle) and SailPoint Technologies.

"Hiring John to oversee the EMEA market will allow us to maximize the opportunities that are evolving in the region," said Nayyar.
