Growth of SIEM Platform Ecosystem Drives Need for Additional Certifications
Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, announced three new tiers for technology partners that integrate with the Exabeam Security Management Platform (SMP). The expansion of the Exabeam Technology Alliance Partner Program was driven by the buildout of Exabeam’s SIEM platform, which now allows several methods of integration to help companies manage their security operations.
Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, announced three new tiers for technology partners that integrate with the Exabeam Security Management Platform (SMP).
To date, the Exabeam Technology Alliance Partner Program has attracted more than 350 software and services vendors, which represent integrations with almost 2,500 unique data sources and APIs. Types of integrations range from ingestion and parsing of log files, to rules and models for analytics and context augmentation, to automation and alerting in third-party products using playbooks. Given the range and diversity of the integrations, the new program certification levels are designed to help customers understand the type and depth by vendor.
Starting this month, technology partners will fall under one of three designations:
- Exabeam Validated Design Partner – companies with at least one product that can be automated by Exabeam Incident Responder and pre-built rules and models for Exabeam Data Lake and Exabeam Advanced Analytics. All actions, rules and models will be validated by Exabeam technical staff
- Exabeam Certified Design Partner – companies with at least one product that can be automated by Exabeam Incident Responder and pre-built rules or models for Exabeam Data Lake or Exabeam Advanced Analytics
- Exabeam Integrated Design Partner – companies with at least one product supported for data ingestion and parsing by either Exabeam Data Lake or Exabeam Advanced Analytics
In addition to being listed on Exabeam’s Technology Alliance Partner page, Exabeam will create solution briefs and implementation guides for Validated Design Partners. These will be provided to Exabeam customers and service delivery partners.
“Our partner ecosystem has continued to grow along with the uptake of our platform by customers around the world,” said Ted Plumis, vice president of Channels, Business and Corporate Development at Exabeam. “Customers are now asking for more information about our integrations and how they can make their security operations more effective.
Our expanded partner designations help our customers gain a deeper understanding of how to best deploy Exabeam and integrate the platform with our technology partners’ solutions—enabling them to gain the highest value from their investments.”
“Organizations today are demanding that the multi-vendor solutions they deploy within their security operations centers are able to share information to provide operational efficiencies and speed up the response process. Exabeam’s new Technology Alliance Partner Program will drive even more advanced integrations leveraging our CrowdStrike Falcon Platform for our customers,” said Curt Aubley, vice president, Security Architectures, CrowdStrike.
“Integrating the Netskope Security Cloud with Exabeam Advanced Analytics allows security professionals to quickly identify risky users that may have compromised credentials or insider threat actors abusing account privileges and directly address issues with security and access control policies,” said Billy Bond, vice president, Business Development and Alliances, Netskope. “Partnering with Exabeam has provided more than 375 analytics-driven data models and rules leveraging Netskope data within the Exabeam SIEM platform to our joint customers. We are delighted to be a launch partner in their new Technology Alliance Partner Program and drive even more integration points between our two solutions.”
