SYDNEY, AUS & LONDON, UK – September 24, 2018 – Huntsman Security, cyber security software supplier to some of the world’s most demanding mission critical defence and government environments, was today acknowledged as a “Strong Performer” in “The Forrester Wave™: Security Analytics Platforms, Q3 2018” published by Forrester Research.


Forrester Wave Security Analytics 2018 Report

Security Analytics solutions, have expanded next-generation SIM from rules-based detection to include data science tools such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Security Analytics enables the effective management of growing data volumes and infrastructure complexity. The capabilities help defend networks from increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks by enabling rapid detection, analysis and understanding of threats so complex cyber security attacks or insider threats can be identified and mitigated in real-time.

Forrester Research’s assessment of Huntsman Security’s solution stated:

“Huntsman Enterprise SIEM combines SIM capabilities with behavioral anomaly detection. The add-on Huntsman Analyst Portal provides threat verification, investigation, and automated resolution … Options for multi tenant licencing and per-user pricing are also available.”

Security Analytics encompasses the very areas that Huntsman Security has pioneered – dealing with high volumes of machine and user generated data, processing it at high speed using a range of analytics techniques including advanced correlation, machine learning, behaviour anomaly detection and alert verification to protect against attacks, compliance breaches and data loss.

Huntsman Security was one of only 3 vendors to score the maximum in compliance support criterion (a common driver for security investments) and also scored the maximum for its ability to handle large implementations. See here for more details.

Peter Woollacott, CEO of Huntsman Security said:

“Forrester have carefully assessed market demand and a number of security analytics offerings in terms of how they solve the problem of detecting ever growing numbers of cyber threats quickly and effectively. So we are pleased to have been acknowledged as a Strong Performer in the provision of this type of technology to support the cyber resilience efforts of our customers.”

Piers Wilson, Head of Product Management, added:

“The Wave assessment is thorough, and spans much of the breadth of technology we offer; mapping our capabilities against real-world cyber threat scenarios and security operations requirements – complex external attacks, insider threats, anomalous behaviour detection, incident response and attack visualisation. We believe that recognition for our security analytics solutions is a great endorsement of our position at the vanguard of this space.”
