LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2016) -  Securonix, the pioneer behind user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for information security, continues to lead the security analytics market, earning prominent industry awards including the 2016 Platinum Govies Government Security Award for best threat intelligence.

An independent panel of judges from the security industry named Securonix's UEBA-based security analytics platform -- Securonix Enterprise -- the industry leading threat intelligence solution and Platinum Award Winner for its outstanding government security capabilities. Winners were chosen based on criteria including features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, and impact in the security industry, technical advances, and scalability. The annual Govies Awards are produced by Security Products Magazine and Securitytoday.com.

"Government agencies are prime targets of today's cyber security attacks. Securonix works closely with the public sector to provide state-of-the-art security analytics that predict, prevent, detect and respond to threats," said Securonix CEO Sachin Nayyar.

Securonix Enterprise is a behavior-based security and fraud analytics platform that analyzes and correlates event logs from hundreds of sources, devices and applications across the entire IT infrastructure -- including cloud, mobile and big data platforms. It uses sophisticated algorithms to analyze all interactions between users, machines and data to detect insider and external cyber threats. The primary use cases delivered by Securonix Enterprise include the rapid detection of data exfiltration, privilege abuse and malware infections.

The company's success in the public sector is no surprise, given that its advisory board boasts some of the most influential security leaders from the Federal government. Former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, former Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell, former Chief Information Officer of the U.S. Intelligence Community Patrick Gorman, and former NSA Deputy Director Chris Inglis are all members of the Securonix Board of Strategic Advisors. Together with the CEO, they play a critical role helping the company scale, deliver its technology to market, and win the war against cyber crime with solutions that solve the most complex security problems.
