Gartner reports that “Security and risk management leaders increasingly want SIEM solutions with attack detection, investigation, response and compliance capabilities, but must balance this desire with an understanding of the resources needed to run such solutions.”

  • Accelerates digital transformation by scaling on a platform built for limitless analysis, that enables security teams to harness data from across their full technology stack, including years of historical context, across hybrid and multi-cloud architectures.
  • Adopted and supported by a rich community of users to help customers reduce the barriers to adopting advanced security capabilities and achieving SecOps excellence.
  • Empowers practitioners to prevent, detect, and respond to sophisticated attacks by centralizing actionable data and retaining it for years, performing automated and analyst-driven analysis.
  • Simplifies the enterprise security stack with a single agent for host inspection and data collection, anti-malware, and ransomware prevention.
