Forrester recently published its “Security Analytics Platform Landscape, Q3 2022” report. The report describes the market for Security Analytics (SA) Platforms, defined in the document as something that “converges logs from network, identity, endpoint, application, and other security relevant sources to generate high-fidelity behavioral alerts and facilitate rapid incident analysis, investigation, and response”. Other industry analysts would call this a SIEM. Well, whatever these solutions are called, we are happy to see that this report highlights how Securonix is moving in the right direction.
The report mentions the market main trend, primary challenge, and top disruptor. None of those were surprises to us, as is evidenced in the direction we are taking our platform. The main trend is described as “SA platforms subsuming adjacent markets”. Yes, they are definitely doing it. Our platform today incorporates capabilities from a multitude of product categories, including SIEM, Security Data Lakes, UEBA, SOAR, and TIP. But this is not only about putting more capabilities together. That’s the easy part. We see many SIEM vendors buying SOAR startups to bolt-on SOAR capabilities to catch up on this trend. What is most challenging is exactly what Forrester describes as the market’s primary challenge, “Providing High-Quality Security Analyst Experience (AX)”.
