Exabeam Honored as 2019 CRN® Tech Innovator Award Winner


Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Exabeam with a 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Award. These annual awards honor innovative hardware, software and services. CRN editors evaluated hundreds of products, across 34 technology categories using criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges. The Exabeam SaaS Cloud solution took top honors in the SIEM/Security Analytics category.

Using SaaS Cloud, analysts can collect log data, use behavioral analytics to detect attacks and automate incident response without the infrastructure costs and maintenance overheads inherent in on-premises SIEM deployments.

 As a hosted cloud offering, SaaS Cloud provides the full functionality of the market-leading Exabeam Security Management Platform (SMP), including a data lake, behavioral analytics, case management, security orchestration and incident response automation. In addition to using SaaS Cloud to collect on-premises data, organizations can use Exabeam Cloud Connectors to directly ingest data into SaaS Cloud from dozens of popular cloud-based services, eliminating the need to route cloud data to on-premises data centers. Behavioral analytics improve detection by identifying advanced threats, while response playbooks increase security operations center (SOC) productivity through incident remediation automation using pre-built connectors to IT and security applications, regardless of where the applications are deployed.

 In September 2019, the company expanded availability of SaaS Cloud to help even more organizations modernize their security operations. In addition to the U.S., SaaS Cloud is now available for in-region hosting in 15 locations in 13 countries, including Canada and others within Europe, Asia-Pacific and South America. This means its growing global customer base can take advantage of SaaS Cloud while meeting compliance and policy requirements for in-region hosting.

 Exabeam customers can license SaaS Cloud through its predictable, user-based pricing program for any type of deployment.

 “In the same way that we solved the cost problem of SIEM through flat, user-based pricing, we are solving the operational challenges of SIEM through a SaaS offering,” said Ted Plumis, vice president of Channels, Business and Corporate Development at Exabeam. “Being recognized as a CRN Tech Innovator further validates the hard work our team pours into making our customers’ security teams more efficient by removing the burden of deployment, maintenance and upgrading,”

 “CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s award categories deserve congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”
