Exabeam SIEM Adds Cloud Deployment, Unveils Threat Intelligence Service

Exabeam, a security information and event management (SIEM) platform provider, has launched the Spectrum program for its Security Intelligence Platform (SIP) deployments.

Spectrum enables Exabeam customers to choose SIP deployment via public cloud, hybrid cloud and cloud-to-cloud options, according to a prepared statement. Customers also can select a fully managed service from an Exabeam MSSP partner.

Furthermore, Spectrum leverages a per-employee subscription licensing model, Exabeam indicated. This ensures customers are billed a flat, predictable annual fee, regardless of where SIP is deployed.

Exabeam Introduces the Threat Intelligence Cloud

In addition to Spectrum, Exabeam has announced the Threat Intelligence Cloud, a service designed to help organizations track and analyze threat indicators.

The Threat Intelligence Cloud consolidates and downloads threat indicators to the Exabeam Data Lake log management tool, the company said. Then, the Exabeam Advanced Analytics user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) solution matches these indicators in real-time with user and entity activities.

Exabeam plans to release the Threat Intelligence Cloud in the next 12 months. The company also intends to provide details about a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering at its Spotlight user conference in September.

Exabeam, Carbon Black Announce Integration

An integration is now available that enables security analysts, security operations center (SOC) staff and other SIP users to leverage the Carbon Black Cb Response threat hunting product, according to Exabeam. The integration allows SIP users to trigger automated incident response of detected threats via the Carbon Black application programming interface (API).

With the integration, an alert triggered in Cb Response can be used within SIP to create baseline behaviors, identify anomalous sessions and trigger an incident response playbook, Exabeam indicated. The integration also enables security analysts and SOC staff to combine Carbon Black endpoint security data with third-party data from various security solutions, virtual private networks (VPNs) and other sources.

What Is Exabeam?

Exabeam offers security intelligence and management solutions to organizations around the globe. The company delivers end-to-end threat detection, analytics and response capabilities via SIP, which is used to monitor over 4 million employees worldwide.

Meanwhile, Exabeam's channel-generated bookings grew over 150 percent year over year in the first quarter of 2018, according to the company. Exabeam also reported 205 percent year-over-year billings growth for SIP during the time frame.
