Integrated offering provides a comprehensive security intelligence solution that can detect both known and unknown threats

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Securonix, The Security Intelligence Company, today announced that it has expanded its technical collaboration with McAfee through the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance(TM) (SIA) partner program. Securonix has integrated its Security Intelligence Platform with McAfee Enterprise Security Platform (ESM), McAfee's security information and event monitoring (SIEM) solution, providing it rich identity, access, and behavior risk context and anomaly detection for identification and rapid response to insider and advanced threats.

The integrated offering provides a comprehensive security intelligence solution that can detect both known and unknown threats. The combined solution detects anomalies in activity logs and risk ranks these anomalies so organizations can focus their investigations on the highest risk activities and users. By using an innovative behavior-based anomaly detection technique in conjunction with peer group analysis technique, the solution detects abnormal usage patterns over billions of logged events.

"The integration with McAfee ESM enables McAfee to deliver a more holistic enterprise security platform with actionable security intelligence and is a natural continuation of our existing partnership with McAfee DLP. The new ESM integration tackles the issues that companies are facing today with Big Security Data and the inability to quickly respond to emerging threats, which unnoticed until much damage is done."

"Securonix's advanced identity correlation and behavior analysis capabilities enable us to tackle some of the most complex and challenging insider and advanced targeted threat events plaguing our customers," said Ed Barry, Vice President of Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee.
