Securonix Named a 2018 TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor

New York City, NY – Oct. 3, 2017 – Securonix, the industry-leading vendor of big data security analytics and user behavior analytics solutions, is proud to announce its designation as a Distinguished Vendor in this year’s 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual.

Securonix joined forces with a number of other innovative cybersecurity organizations to share their expertise in behavior analytics for cyber threat detection and prevention. Each of those given this designation was hand-selected by Dr. Edward Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber, to assist with this year’s report, which was made available today for free download at

“We share Dr. Amoroso’s vision of expanding cybersecurity knowledge and expertise.” said CEO, Sachin Nayyar who earlier in the year named an EY Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist, “Legacy log management solutions are still trying to use rule-based techniques that are prone to false positives and require manual effort. The only way to effectively detect and prevent modern data breaches is by understanding behavior patterns in your environment, using machine learning techniques. Securonix uses the power of Hadoop platform and patented algorithms to analyze massive volumes of data in real-time to detect actionable threats.”

This year’s 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual was developed to assist enterprise security teams as they modernize their cyber risk program via the following three steps: Exploding the flat perimeter enterprise into distributed workloads; Offloading the resultant applications and networks onto cloud-based, software-defined infrastructure; and then Reloading protections using the best available cyber security technologies.

“The Securonix methodology of using machine learning algorithms to detect security issues is the only way to handle the volume and sophistication of cyber attacks today,” said Amoroso. “More and more issues of identity, access, usage, and transactions to name a few are making the need for platforms such as this more and more essential.”

Each year, TAG Cyber publishes it three-volume report to the community for download at no cost. In addition to the Securonix website, the report is also available at Volume 2 of the report also includes an informative interview with Securonix CEO, Sachin Nayyar.
