LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gurucul, a leader in Unified Security and Risk Analytics technology for on-premises and the cloud, today announced it has been selected the 2021 Best Product in Insider Threat Prevention by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.
Malicious insiders motivated to conduct sabotage, espionage, fraud, or competitive advantage typically carry out attacks by abusing their account access and/or compromising network devices. These individuals (or groups) can be employees, contractors, third parties, and visitors who are given access to perform their work. They can also be outsiders who hijack accounts and impersonate insiders. In some situations, a negligent insider can significantly increase the risk exposure for an organization. All these factors make it extremely difficult for enterprises to identify and prevent insider threats. According to the 2021 Insider Threat Report conducted by Cybersecurity Insiders, only two percent of organizations reported they are “not at all vulnerable” to insider threats, while 98 percent said they are vulnerable.
“Being named the Best Insider Threat Protection solution by the Cyber Defense Magazine is a great honor and a testament of our data science and R&D team’s commitment, customer consortium, and industry leading threat research partnerships that help fuel innovation and customer success to protect against insider threats,” said Saryu Nayyar CEO of Gurucul. “Gurucul Unified Security and Risk Analytics is a data science driven platform that detects advanced threats, provides contextual risk-prioritized alerts, and automates security controls. Gurucul has created the most effective technology for detecting insider threats in real-time with high efficacy results.”
“Gurucul embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
