Gurucul Takes Platinum for Best SIEM in 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now in its Eighth Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Best Security Incident & Event Management Solution (SIEM)
Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM
SIEM plays a major role for enterprises looking to reduce the overall security attack surface (and false positives) and resource burdens on security teams. But as attackers get more sophisticated and networks more complex, SIEM tools must evolve as well.
The conventional SIEM paradigm presents Events and Incidents, as identified by rules-based analytics, without context. But Gurucul takes a different approach to SIEM.
Gurucul’s Next-Gen SIEM is cloud-native, built for speed and scale, and helps to modernize security operations by delivering ultra-high-fidelity detection and automated response. It leverages over 2500 Machine Learning Models powered by data science to produce actionable risk intelligence, and doesn’t rely on signatures, rules, or patterns.
It allows organizations to identify zero-day threats in real-time and is designed to provide both contextual and situational awareness to detect and stop malicious behavior before cyber criminals or rogue insiders can do harm.
Gurucul’s Next-Gen SIEM includes a variety of key features, including a cutting-edge lightweight SaaS architecture with cloud elasticity and predictable costs, real-time threat detection, the industry’s most advanced data-science powered Machine Learning behavior analytics, and the market’s most diverse security content library.
Furthermore, its advanced and intuitive UX provides contextual investigation and intelligent timeline views, blazing fast searches, and risk-based responses. The open, flexible, and extensible platform also unifies SIEM, XDR, UEBA, SOAR, NTA, and Identity and Access Analytics with a single seamless and consolidated view. It supports an open choice of big data repositories and can be deployed flexibly on any leading big data infrastructure.
This protects existing IT investments, eliminates data duplication, and reduces storage fees. Customers can simply layer Gurucul’s advanced security analytics engine on top of their existing or new Hadoop, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and Elastic/ELK deployments.
Finally, Gurucul’s Next-Gen SIEM is built to scale. Many agencies have over 250,000 employees. One health insurance customer uses Gurucul to analyze 8 million identities and 500 big data nodes. Another health insurer is using Gurucul to apply advanced analytics to over 15 million identities belonging to employees, partners and customers, and a large financial institution has deployed Gurucul advanced security analytics with its custom cloud big data lake on AWS to risk score access and activity, reduce access risks, and detect unknown threats.
*Gurucul is a returning ‘ASTORS’ Award Champion, having secured Wins in the 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2016 Homeland Security Awards Programs, respectively.
The continually evolving ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program will highlight the trail of Accomplished Women in Leadership in 2023 and the Significance and Positive Impact of Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in our Next Generation of Government and Industry Leaders. Because #MentorshipMatters.

Chief Jardin spoke about the continuing health battle of many following 9/11 with cancer and respiratory disease, yet now knowing the full consequences, would not have made a different decision to respond.
As Chief Jardin noted, mission-driven service is the lifeblood of every firefighter, volunteer, and sworn member, and has been so throughout the history of the Fire Service.
