NTT DATA Corporation Chooses Exabeam's SIEM Solution to Strengthen its Global Cyber Defense Posture
Exabeam announced today that NTT Data Corporation (NTT DATA), one of the world's leading providers of technology and services for government and business and an Exabeam partner, has chosen to secure its global operations using Exabeam's Security Management Platform (SMP). Exabeam's SMP will provide unlimited data collection, machine learning and analytics for cyber threat dection and response. 

NTT DATA's internal system is used throughout more than 50 countries and regions, 210 cities and by 34,500 employees in Japan and 75,500 employees overseas. It is a fast-moving company that has acquired many businesses over the last five to 10 years, resulting in the inheritance of a number of different legacy SIEM platforms. However, it took too much time to analyze and handle all of the incidents across the different SIEM systems for each site.

"Exabeam was already our valued partner, and we were so confident in the company's security solution, we decided to use it ourselves, to remove complexity and unify our disparate legacy systems that were ineffective at protecting against modern threats," said Hiroshi Honjo, head of Cyber Security and Governance at NTT DATA. "Having Exabeam's unlimited data lake and attractive pricing model made the difference for our large organization."

Exabeam's SMP provides NTT DATA with scalable, behavioral modeling, machine learning, and advanced analytics for comprehensive insider and entity threat detection throughout Japan, APAC, North America, and Europe. This functionality was vital to the NTT DATA team because they required greater visibility into potential cyberthreats throughout the organization and in all locations around the world.

"NTT DATA's journey was a unique one, since they had multiple legacy logging platforms in use globally. Exabeam was able to replace or consolidate each system using our next generation platform, and we accomplished the initial rollout in a matter of months," said Nir Polak, CEO, Exabeam. "The swiftness of that transition is critical to maintaining secure operations, especially when dealing with such a geographically dispersed enterprise."

Automated incident response allows teams to respond to security incidents rapidly and with less effort. At the SMP's foundation is the Exabeam security data lake, designed to store all event logs at a predictable and flat price. This frees the NTT DATA security team from manually analyzing data logs - and instead they can focus on quickly identifying and responding to security threats.

According to Honjo, "The second phase of our project will be to look at use cases and fine tune the SIEM solution to work for our business needs. Overall, we are very happy with how well Exabeam met our stated deadlines and how quickly we are able to realize value from the product. We look forward to introducing Exabeam to our global customers."

Recently, Exabeam was identified by Gartner, Inc. in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management. The company was positioned as a Leader based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
