Exabeam and Corelight Partner to Accelerate Incident Response Time

Exabeam and Corelight will combine proven network security monitoring (NSM) with advanced behavior analytics and automated incident response capabilities in a new strategic partnership. In the combined solution, Corelight Sensor data along with the Exabeam Security Management Platform will help joint customers in their efforts to detect, investigate and respond to increasingly advanced threats.

Attacks that are sophisticated in nature leverage users and machine in search of high value data by moving laterally through a network. Because their movements blend in with legitimate user activity and network traffic, these attackers are often difficult for security teams to detect. These factors leave security teams vulnerable to compromise.

The joint Exabeam and Corelight solution can augment, provide additional context to, and enable rapid analysis of network data. Since virtually all attacks must traverse networks, making NSM a fundamental part of cybersecurity defense is an essential step for any organization. Based on open-source Zeek (formerly known as Bro, the powerful and widely-used open source network analysis framework), Corelight Sensors serve as a unifying foundation for security teams that require immediate visibility into the data on their networks.

The Exabeam Security Management Platform identifies risky, anomalous device activity that may be indicative of a security incident or compromise. The platform gathers all related events into the Exabeam Smart Timelines, prebuilt timelines that automatically reconstruct the events underlying security incidents, allowing analysts to stop spending time combing through raw logs to investigate. The joint solution enables security analysts to easily identify suspicious activity and remediate threats in real time.

"Data is the lifeblood of the network but deciphering the right data at the right time can be a complex and time-consuming task," said Brian Dye, chief product officer at Corelight. "Corelight Sensors alleviate this complexity by capturing enterprise-grade data organized into actionable logs that are then enriched and contextualized by the Exabeam Smart Timelines.  This powerful combination ensures that our mutual customers can spend less time responding to false security alerts and more time detecting and eradicating malicious activity from their networks before a breach occurs."

"Cyber threats have become more advanced, making it increasingly challenging for organizations to continually protect their customers," said Ted Plumis, vice president of worldwide channels at Exabeam. "Corelight and Exabeam deliver a streamlined security solution that provides organizations with more powerful detection capabilities against sophisticated threats like lateral movement and higher fidelity alerts than a single solution could achieve alone."
