At its Spotlight23 event this week, Exabeam unveiled its latest artificial intelligence (AI)-driven security operations advancements.

Exabeam says it’s one of the first companies to apply AI to address the limitations of traditional and legacy security information and event management (SIEM) solutions. Since announcing its New-Scale SIEM last October, the company has had more than 400 new product features in the last 11 months.

“Exabeam and its partners are focused on making the lives of security operations center (SOC) teams better, and our long history of using AI and machine learning (ML) in our products, and the new enhancements with generative AI are a perfect complement to our mutual go to market,” said Ken Hammond, Exabeam’s vice president of worldwide channel and alliances. “Partners will be able to aid joint customers in achieving better SOC  productivity and continuously improve their value proposition.”

Latest Security Operations Features

At Spotlight23, Exabeam announced its latest advancements for security operations leveraging AI, generative AI and ML that increase security team productivity. Those are:

  • TDIR capabilities to further improve the fidelity of threat detections, streamline the investigation experience and automate the TDIR workflow.

  • Threat Explainer, a new product feature that classifies threats and clearly articulates business risk. Leveraging historical data, Threat Explainer summarizes incidents into narratives and recommendations for next-best remediation actions.

  • A new data telemetry capability that uses ML to alert customers about possible log source configuration errors. It helps spot gaps between predicted and actual data volumes to help avoid billing overages.

“We used ML since our inception in our user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) product and AI in automating the repetitive tasks in the SOC,” Hammond said. “Our partners will benefit from the increased automation and TDIR capabilities – powered by AI and ML – to our joint customers. With so many security teams wondering how to intelligently incorporate AI into their programs, our partners can now point them to an array of features that make AI-driven security operations a reality. With our use of AI and ML, security professionals will be able to come up for air from the overwhelming amount of daily alerts they encounter. Instead, they can focus their attention on more critical matters that directly impact an organization’s security posture.”

The AI-driven Exabeam security operations platform provides the situational awareness that enables security and business team members to have a shared understanding of an organization’s security posture and the same interpretation of each and every threat, resulting in less room for inaccurate assumptions and human error, the company said. In a time of increased, complex and bold criminal cyberattacks, including the ones that use AI, it’s critical that security teams and CISOs have the immediate information and clarity that Exabeam provides.

The recently announced Exabeam and Google Cloud AI partnership gives Exabeam a first-mover advantage to embed the newest AI models and innovations into its cloud-native product portfolio.
