SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fortscale Security Ltd., the innovator in machine learning-based user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for security, today announced that CRN has named Fortscale to its list of “20 Coolest SIEM and Threat Detection Vendors.” The annual list recognizes “SIEM and security analytics vendors that help companies prioritize alerts and automate security tasks.” This is the second consecutive year that Fortscale has been recognized in the category and comes on the heels of the company’s recently unveiled Presidio™ offering, the industry’s first embedded UEBA engine that natively expands capabilities of existing security solutions.
“The sheer amount of threats that organizations face on a daily basis no longer makes SIEM and threat detection a luxury, but a necessity,” said Idan Tendler, founder and CEO, Fortscale. “Thus, our Presidio platform was created to work with existing security solutions and is now enabling businesses to incorporate advanced security analytics into their security platforms. We’re proud to once again be recognized by CRN and look forward to working with our channel partners to expand our global reach and make Presidio available to companies of all sizes.”
Fortscale Presidio leverages the predictive, big data analytics and machine-learning engine of Fortscale’s award-winning UEBA platform for insider threat detection and extends it to be natively embedded into existing security to offer a new level of accessibility for organizations. It adds native risk-based intelligence on the activity of users and entities within a company’s environment to enhance analysis and security enforcement – ultimately improving the performance and effectiveness of the overall security infrastructure.
The “20 Coolest SIEM and Threat Detection Vendors” list emphasizes the importance of analytics, automation and orchestration to help “prioritize alerts and automate simpler security tasks.” The list is part of the CRN 2017 Security 100, which highlights “the best of the best in network security, SIEM and threat detection, web, email and application security, and identity management and data protection.”
Fortscale’s inclusion in the CRN list is the latest recognition for the emerging company. Fortscale was named a 2016 Gartner “Cool Vendor” in Identity and Access Management and Fraud. Fortscale was also named to Calcalist’s list of “top 50 most promising Israeli startups” for 2016 and NetworkWorld’s list of intriguing new products.
