LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gurucul, a leader in the next-gen SIEM market with its innovative, disruptive, and proven Analytics-driven Cloud SIEM, today announced that Gurucul has been positioned by Gartner as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for SIEM1. The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“We are thrilled with Gurucul’s inaugural positioning, further right and ranked higher for vision as compared to many traditional and next-gen SIEM solutions,” said Saryu Nayyar, Gurucul CEO. “This is a testament to Gurucul’s disruptive approach, proven scalable lower cost technology, and customer adoption of our cloud / hybrid Analytics-Driven SIEM to modernize security operations centers. The hyper growth we are experiencing is attributed to consistent delivery of industry leading innovation and proven customer success with unparalleled time to value.”

“Gurucul Analytics-driven SIEM goes way beyond delivering all the features expected from a SIEM platform and adds capabilities that no traditional SIEM platform can match,” says Nayyar. “It leverages an open metadata and flexible entity framework to consume business critical, cloud, and on-prem applications data including proprietary and legacy systems. Gurucul is the only platform in the space with deep identity monitoring and intelligence capabilities providing unconventional and advanced coverage for insider threats and radical risk reduction of the identity threat plane, which is more important now than ever with digital and cloud transformation.”
