SAN MATEO, Calif., Oct. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exabeam, the market leader in User and Entity Behavior Analytics and developer of the first next-generation SIEM, today announced a partnership with WireX Systems, a market leader in incident investigation solutions, to improve overall cybersecurity and incident response (IR). 

As cyber-attacks become more complex—touching more assets, moving laterally through networks, and involving more sophisticated techniques—incident investigations and response times are beginning to swell for response teams at organizations of all sizes.

“Today’s threats are unlike the single-dimensional threats of the past,” commented Nir Polak, CEO of Exabeam. “To efficiently handle modern threats, enterprises need to implement solutions capable of deep, holistic investigation and automated response.”

The combination of WireX Systems’ investigation platform and Exabeam’s security orchestration and response automation, streamlines incident response processes and enables security teams to drastically reduce response and remediation times. Organizations are coming to the realization that they must implement technologies which help them quickly understand the root cause, context, and scope of specific cyber threats, as well as provide swift, automated response to these threats.

WireX Systems provides an integrated investigation platform that enables every security team member to conduct faster, better investigations, while reducing data retention costs. The company’s Contextual Capture™ technology provides immediate context into security alerts, delivering months of in-depth visibility to the world’s largest organizations.

Exabeam provides the ability for incident responders to connect and coordinate disparate security and IT solutions through pre-built API connections, and to run automated response playbooks that amplify analyst productivity. The partnership of Exabeam and WireX Systems lets customers quickly visualize data and take remediation actions; yielding faster, more intelligent response decisions.

Tomer Saban, CEO and Co-Founder of WireX Systems said, “This partnership gives our joint customers greater visibility and actionable intelligence combined with powerful, automated, response workflows that will dramatically reduce mean time to respond.”
