To defend modern companies against advanced attacks in complicated hybrid environments, Securonix was designed. Securonix was recognised a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) for the fourth year in a row and a Customers’ Choice in the 2023 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’. The business created the first Unified Defence SIEM with 365 days of “Hot” searchable data and integrated ChatGPT to give Securonix Investigate generative AI capabilities to reduce incident reaction time.

Organisations may expand their security operations and stay up to date with the latest threats thanks to this creative cloud-native solution.
