Exabeam’s first user conference, Spotlight 2018, brought attendees – including partners and customers – to Las Vegas last week. And the message was clear: there’s nothing stopping the security information and event management (SIEM) vendor from taking on and stealing deals from the big guys like Splunk, IBM and ArcSight.

Nir Polak, Exabeam’s co-founder and CEO, told attendees his company recently crossed the 200-customer mark, and there now are 700 members inside its community portal, with more than 2,000 logins.

“We’ve built an amazing platform and it’s amazing to see where you’re taking it,” he said.

Exabeam has launched a cloud security service and eventually will have its entire platform available as a cloud service.

“We tripled (in revenue) in our first year and doubled last year, and we’re on track again this year to double our revenue,” said Sylvain Gil, Exabeam’s co-founder and vice president of products. “We benchmark our sales against other security startups, security companies that are now public, and we’re trying to see what growth they had and what the revenue was and what all the indicators were at that stage of those companies, and so far we’re right up there or faster than most of the big security companies you’ve seen going public in the last few years. If we had tried to do this conference last year, we may have had 30 people and now we’re sold out … and next year I hope we’ll have 500 people.
