UnitedLex Adds Securonix Security Analytics to Broaden Threat Detection Capabilities

Highly Specialized Managed Security Service Reduces Gap between Breach and Detection

Overland Park, KS (August 3, 2015) – UnitedLex, a leading global provider of intelligence-driven cybersecurity and legal services, announced a partnership with leading security analytics provider Securonix to broaden its advanced rapid threat and legal risk detection capabilities. Armed with a deep understanding of their clients’ business environments and high-risk users, UnitedLex consultants accurately focus security efforts, fine tune monitoring, and create granular user behavior profiles to successfully execute content- and context-aware security services, that most managed security providers have little success with, such as data leakage prevention.

“UnitedLex security services are driven by human intelligence. Our first step is to bring all client stakeholders to the table,” explained Jason Straight, Chief Privacy Officer at UnitedLex. “We use the intelligence gathered from these stakeholders to filter out irrelevant monitoring data and map user behavior, which speeds anomaly detection. Securonix maximizes the return on these efforts by mining, analyzing, prioritizing and visualizing data into actionable intelligence on threats, such as advanced targeted attacks, malicious insiders, and violations of broader enterprise risk management policies.”

The Securonix Security Analytics Platform is the leading solution that provides real-time, behavior-based analytics at scale across network devices, applications, databases, user activities and hosts. Using sophisticated anomaly detection techniques that track user, account, and system behavior, Securonix automatically detects advanced attacks including insider threats, data exfiltration and advanced persistent threats, as well as “hard-to-see” breaches in which attackers leverage compromised employee’s log-in credentials. “We are proud to be partnering with UnitedLex to extend their offering with behavioral security analytics and rapid breach detection capabilities,” said Darren Gaeta, VP of Alliances and Channels at Securonix.
