Exabeam Expands Collaboration with Google Cloud to Enhance Security Operations with Generative AI

Exabeam, a global cybersecurity leader renowned for introducing New-Scale SIEM™ to elevate security operations, and the distinguished recipient of the 2023 Google Cloud Technology Partner of the Year for Security - Analytics award, has disclosed a significant expansion of its collaboration with Google Cloud. The focus of this extended partnership lies in the joint development of generative artificial intelligence (AI) models within Exabeam's cloud-native New-Scale SIEM product portfolio. This strategic alliance aims to drive substantial advancements in AI-powered security enhancements.

“We chose to build the Exabeam Security Operations Platform on Google Cloud, not only for its hyperscale and speed, but for its ability to support the type of technically advanced security products we build at Exabeam. Google Cloud’s current and future innovation in AI are the perfect complement to our security market-focused AI capabilities,” said Adam Geller, CEO, Exabeam. “We look forward to unveiling the generative AI advancements in New-Scale SIEM that are underway with Google Cloud to modernize security operations in new and previously unimaginable ways.”

The roots of Exabeam's proficiency in user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) trace back to the strategic leverage of machine learning (ML). This pioneering application of AI within the security information and event management (SIEM) and security markets led Exabeam to enhance the accuracy and speed of threat detection, even automating investigations. To combat the industrywide issue of alert fatigue among security analysts, Exabeam employed ML early on to cluster and contextualize alerts, thereby reducing their volume. The hallmark of Exabeam's approach is the ML-based Smart Timelines™, which autonomously reconstruct the events that underlie security incidents.

“We're proud that Exabeam has tapped Google Cloud's generative AI capabilities to improve its security products,” said Vineet Bhan, Global Head of Security Partnerships at Google Cloud. “We look forward to seeing the impact this will make on businesses looking to enhance security workflows and streamline cybersecurity reports through generative AI.”

By leveraging the capabilities of Google Cloud's Vertex AI platform, Exabeam is further augmenting its AI and ML capabilities, with a specific focus on streamlining the design and workflows associated with threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR). This evolution aims to cater to diverse roles including engineers, analysts, threat hunters, managers, and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs). Exabeam's New-Scale SIEM endeavors to deliver enhanced parsing and data onboarding speed, amplified fidelity detections, heightened investigation productivity, and an overall enhanced security posture.

This collaborative partnership between Exabeam and Google Cloud is poised to harness generative AI, capitalizing on natural language processing (NLP) to enhance search and investigation capabilities for cybersecurity professionals. By offering comprehensive context and timelines for notable incidents, this integration seeks to provide more informed insights. Large language models (LLMs) are instrumental in diminishing the occurrence of false positives, thus aligning with the broader objective of refining security operations and rendering cybersecurity reports more comprehensible for stakeholders.

The initiative of embedding generative AI within New-Scale SIEM products holds the potential to introduce assistant-like functionality. This innovation endeavors to expedite and streamline the investigation process by enabling queries in natural language. Furthermore, it aims to provide advanced insights and recommended steps to less experienced security responders and analysts. The collaborative strides taken by Exabeam and Google Cloud are poised to revolutionize security operations and introduce unprecedented advancements to the cybersecurity landscape. ###
