FYI, this story is more than a year old

Exabeam has signed a multi-year agreement to run its software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering on Google Cloud. The SIEM company will run its hosted cloud version of its Exabeam Security Management Platform (SMP).

The company has also been named a Google Cloud security partner, and this expanded relationship will help Exabeam customers accelerate cloud adoption, while delivering scalability and quick time to value, Exabeam states.

As a hosted cloud offering, Exabeam SaaS Cloud provides the full functionality of the Exabeam SMP, including a data lake, behavioural analytics, case management, and security orchestration and incident response automation.

Organisations can directly ingest data from different cloud-based services, eliminating the need to route cloud data to on-premises data centers.

Behavioural analytics improve detection by identifying advanced threats, while response playbooks increase security operations centre (SOC) productivity through incident remediation automation using pre-built connectors to IT and security applications, regardless of where the applications are deployed, Exabeam states.

In addition to running natively on Google Cloud, where its cloud compute and storage capabilities will reside, Exabeam can also protect data hosted with other cloud providers.

By offering Exabeam Cloud Connectors to collect logs from over 30 cloud services into Exabeam Data Lake, Exabeam Advanced Analytics, and any other security information and event management (SIEM) solution, users can enhance their cloud security, the company states.

Exabeam vice president product management says, “As more customers understand the benefits of migrating workloads securely to the cloud, adoption is accelerating. Combining Google Cloud's capabilities with Exabeam's market-leading security platform will give our customers the confidence that a move to the cloud can be scalable, efficient, easy to deploy and most importantly, secure.

Google Cloud partnership director Manvinder Singh says, “We're delighted that Exabeam has chosen to expand their footprint on Google Cloud and to welcome them as a key partner.

“Customers can deploy Exabeam on Google Cloud to get an enhanced view of the security of their core infrastructure and to identify advanced threats, further helping improve data security.
