Securonix, the market leader in next-generation security information and event management (SIEM) and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), announced that it has officially launched the Securonix Threat Research (STR) Labs. This launch collects the ongoing research developed by Securonix security experts and shares it with the broader cybersecurity community.
“Securonix has been performing deep analysis and research into the latest cybersecurity issues facing the IT security community. With this launch, we are reinforcing our commitment to the security of our customers and will expand the scope of research as well as the frequency of research advisories,” said Oleg Kolesnikov, head of Securonix Threat Research Labs. “SOC analysts are facing an uphill battle as they defend their domains from a wide variety of advanced cyberattacks. Securonix Threat Research Labs brings together a number of methods, including human security expertise, behavior-based models, and automated threat detection. We want to make sure we are providing a timely positive contribution to the cybersecurity community.”
The Securonix Threat Research Labs team monitors the cybersecurity threat landscape, including extremely dynamic threat sources, DGA, internal and external threat intelligence sources, fraudulent transactions, malicious actors, dark web, and more. The STR team analyzes and deconstructs the activity across these information sources to identify behavioral anomalies and indicators of compromise for cyber threats, exploitable vulnerabilities, insider threats, financial fraud, nation-state activity, application attacks, and many other types of cyber threats.
The STR team works closely with Securonix’s data science team, led by Chief Data Scientist Igor Baikolov; content development team; and product team. This close collaboration ensures that research results become actionable in the form of behaviors, artifacts, and forensic search queries that SOC analysts can quickly use in their own environments to stay ahead of the threats. The ultimate goal is to ensure that all Securonix customers stay protected by having the necessary Securonix threat models and automated mitigation actions as soon as the threat is investigated.
