Gurucul Named a Visionary for the Third Consecutive Year and Positioned Furthest to the Right for Completeness of Vision for the Second Time in 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for SIEM

Gurucul, a leader in security analytics today announced that Gurucul Next-Gen SIEM platform is positioned furthest to the right for completeness of vision in the 2024 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM* for the second time in a row. Gurucul believes this placement in the Visionaries Quadrant in SIEM space reflects the company's strong vision, long history of innovation addressing the complex challenges security operations teams face, and a proven scalable, cloud-native platform.

"We believe being positioned as a Visionary for its SIEM platform for two consecutive years is a huge testament to Gurucul's commitment to disruptive innovations that provide real-time, unified threat detection and response," said Saryu Nayyar, Gurucul CEO. "Since pioneering UEBA technology more than a decade ago, we've maintained the same engineering leadership who continue to provide value to customers with capabilities like advanced AI/ML models and purpose-built threat content, generative AI assistance, risk quantification, and the recent addition of Data Optimizer, which enables us to offer the industry's first cost-optimized SIEM. We are experiencing exponential growth and are making big investments in our go-to-market, customer success and R&D teams to solidify our leadership position in the SIEM market. The growing number of SIEM replacements, effortless migrations, and satisfied customers enjoying robust features, fast ROI, and lower costs validates our strategic approach."

Gurucul offers a stark contrast to failing SIEMs - it is designed to deliver results on day one because it offers unmatched versatility in deployment, data processing, and detection and response. Gurucul's Next-Gen SIEM gives SOC analysts radical clarity into their threat landscape from a single interface with real-time, prioritized, and actionable insights. It can quickly identify and address new, emerging, and unknown threats. It drastically reduces overall operational expenses while improving IT and scurity operations through intelligent data optimizer, reduced threat detection time, automation of manual processes, and improved analyst efficiency.
