New capabilities enhance Securonix cyberthreat detection and response capabilities, improving SOC efficiency and reducing mean time to respond
Securonix has had a busy month releasing announcements that emphasize our commitment to building and expanding relationships with customers and partners. Additionally, we augmented the Securonix EMEA leadership team, following through on our commitment to strengthen and grow our presence in that critical region.
Here are the highlights from the recent announcements:
Securonix and Snowflake Expand Partnership with Zscaler Integration to Accelerate Threat Detection and Response at Cloud Scale
At Snowflake Summit 2022, Securonix announced a joint technology integration with Zscaler and Snowflake that will help security teams accelerate threat detection and response at cloud scale. The new cloud-to-cloud integration allows Securonix to query security event logs aggregated by Zscaler, which are stored in Snowflake for long-term retention and search. Joint customers can search this data on-demand from the Securonix Spotter UI for investigation and reporting. This enhances the functionality of the existing Securonix integration with Snowflake’s new Cybersecurity workload and allows customers to achieve advanced threat detection and response without the cost and technical limitations of traditional SIEM solutions.

Securonix Investigate Powered by Polarity Provides On-demand Context and Improves Analyst Collaboration, Expediting Incident Investigation and Response Times
At RSA Conference 2022, Securonix introduced Securonix Investigate, a new product offering powered by Polarity and embedded in the Securonix Next-Gen SIEM platform. Securonix Investigate is the industry’s first integrated SIEM, SOAR, and Investigation offering that enables SOC teams to inspect threats identified by Securonix and take rapid action, reducing the meantime to respond by more than 50 percent and improving operational efficiency.
Security analysts may not know what context they need before investigating an incident, so traditional context enrichment may not have all the answers. Securonix Investigate enables the security analyst to extract on-demand context from Securonix Threat Labs intelligence as well as additional internal and external sources for in-flight investigations. This eliminates the need for security teams to comb through multiple data sources or develop playbooks when additional or new context is needed. Analysts can annotate their findings within the investigation workflow to share knowledge of their investigation without pivoting to external tools like ticketing, email, or messaging platforms.

Securonix Expands EMEA Senior Leadership Team to Accelerate Regional Market Traction
Following Securonix’s recent $1B+ investment from Vista Equity Partners, the company appointed Phil Close as Vice President of EMEA Sales and Richard Cassidy as Vice President of Global Technology to accelerate regional market traction. In addition, Securonix added product engineering and marketing leadership, appointing Jessica Patey as Head of EMEA Marketing and Stephen Gailey as Senior Director of Solution Architecture.
The investments in senior leadership reflect Securonix’s commitment to aggressively expanding its regional presence and allowing more organizations to effectively secure against advanced threats with the industry’s leading cloud-native security analytics and operations platform.
“EMEA presents a tremendous opportunity for Securonix to expand its global footprint and continue to set the standard for cloud-native security analytics and operations,” said Andy Vallila, CRO, Securonix. “The region has shown a strong appetite for solutions that provide complete visibility and autonomous detection and response capabilities across complex cloud and distributed environments. We are excited to welcome this talented group to Securonix.”
Picus Security and Securonix Partner to Embed Security Control Validation Into Detection and Response Programs
Securonix announced the expansion of its Threat Labs Alliance program with the addition of Picus Security. The Picus Complete Security Control Validation Platform simulates the behavior of emerging and advanced cyber threat actors, allowing enterprises to validate the effectiveness of their security controls and identify gaps to remediate before a real attacker can exploit them. By automating the simulation of attacks before they occur, organizations can continuously test their defenses against the latest up-to-date adversary intelligence with low risk and effort, enabling a proactive, threat-informed defense program.
“Breach and attack simulation is one of the few genuinely proactive and scalable technologies you can deploy to test your defenses before you get hit by a known threat,” according to Nanda Santhana, Senior Vice President of Cybersecurity Solutions for Securonix. “Combined with our Next-Gen SIEM, this is a game-changer. It’s as close as we can get to prediction and allows us to answer the most critical question an organization can have: ‘Are we prepared if we were attacked by X?’”
SnapAttack Launches Strategic Partnership With Securonix to Expand and Accelerate Threat Detection Analytics
SnapAttack announced a partnership with Securonix designed to bring the highest-quality behavioral detections into the Securonix NextGen SIEM to enable joint customers with the ability and confidence to rapidly respond to new and emerging threats. SnapAttack will enable joint customers to gain visibility into their threat detection program and deploy robust, validated detection analytics to their environment, hunt for malicious activity, gain context for triaging alerts with true-positive attack data, and test and validate their detections.
“SnapAttack has allowed Securonix to increase its ability to release new detections based upon the most up-to-date and proactive threat intelligence acquired through SnapAttack’s technology,” said Nanda Santhana, Senior Vice President of Securonix. “This turnkey partnership provides the process of emulating adversary activity and pivoting it into effective threat detection analytics that can immediately defend indicators of compromise.”
