Securonix: The Recognized Leader in Security Analytics


“The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.” – Jane Addams

Having great technology is useless unless it can address business objectives. From partner integrations and user interface to advanced algorithms and pre-packaged content, Securonix has been built to deliver on business objectives, not just on bits and bytes. Founded as a security analytics platform in 2008, Securonix began shipping General Availability (GA) products in 2011. By 2012, the company was profitable and its revenue continues to increase 100 to 200 percent year over year. Today, Securonix has over 200 employees.

Securonix is a purpose-built security analytics platform that is scalable and extensible; it can be rapidly deployed, showing immediate results by leveraging automation, advanced analytics and context-based data science to deliver threat detection that is powerful yet simple to use. Using signature-less anomaly detection techniques that track users, account, and system behavior, Securonix is able to automatically and accurately detect the most advanced data security, insider threats and fraud attacks. Globally, customers are using Securonix to address the most basic and complex needs around threat detection and monitoring, high privileged activity monitoring, enterprise and web fraud detection, application risk monitoring, and access risk management.

The Securonix team is known for their strong dedication to customer welfare. They stay close to customers, listen to them, stay up with them when there are issues and let their wants and needs drive much of the company’s innovation.

Actionable Security Intelligence
Securonix offers a security analytics platform that provides deep integration with multiple data types and over 200 data sources. This platform is engineered to be massively scalable while able to reduce the level of effort associated with data collection, analysis and investigation.

Atop the platform sits the Securonix data science layer – patented algorithms created by security practitioners for security practitioners. The company offers a broad range of pre-built threat models – engineered using crowdsourcing through internal research, customers and partners – so that it delivers value on day one.

Some key capabilities include:

  • Identity to entity correlation.
  • Behavioral algorithms for machine-based deterministic models and deep learning capabilities.
  • Content-specific anomaly detection.
  • Predictive analytics.
  • Threat modeling & threat chaining.
  • Privacy controls for ensuring sensitive data is obfuscated.

Securonix has been working at securing enterprises for over eight years and continues to architect solutions for both quantitative and qualitative benefits.

Quantitative Benefits- Time to value, level of effort and total cost of ownership are all closely evaluated during the development process. The company wants its customers to get results quickly and without a lot of extra overhead. These benefits can be measured with real monetary, time savings as well as real threat mitigation (cost of a breach).

Qualitative Benefits- Achieving greater visibility with improved incident detection, faster and more accurate remediation and context-based decision-making all lend themselves to a greatly improved security posture with betterment across incident prevention, detection and response.

Customer Base
Large enterprises are Securonix’s primary customer base. It recently expanded into mid-market sized companies with specialized solutions tailored for organizations with more limited resources but with threat profiles on par with larger entities. One in three Fortune 100 financial services companies are now Securonix customers. One third of Fortune 500 companies across industries including financial services, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, high-tech, and Government use Securonix. The Global 2000 and mid market companies are dramatically improving their security posture with Securonix co-managed services.

Global Footprint
The company began with a strong focus on North America but is now seeing strong growth directly and with partners throughout EMEA, LATAM and APAC.

Office Locations
Securonix is headquartered in Addison, Texas and has additional offices in Los Angeles, CA; Redwood City, CA; Atlanta, GA; Jersey City, NJ; and Pune Maharashtra, India.

Future Road Map
Securonix challenges itself to continue to be the dominant player in the security space and develop solutions that truly help customers detect threats and mitigate risk efficiently and effectively. While traditional security use cases such as privileged account analytics, data security analytics, cyber threat analytics, cloud security analytics, identity and access analytics, application security analytics and continuous risk monitoring are core to the company, Securonix also has customers leveraging its solutions for anti-money laundering, trade surveillance and other more specialized use cases where advanced analytics, behavioral algorithms and deep learning are required.
