Driving Cloud Security Innovation: Securonix and Wiz's Strategic Partnership

By Greg Tavarez, TMCnet Editor  |  December 07, 2023

Organizations are often fighting to mitigate evolving threats and secure sensitive information in an increasingly interconnected digital landscape. They obviously don’t want to experience a data breach. Just look at the cost of a breach; in 2023, the worldwide average cost incurred due to a data breach amounted to $4.45 million, a 15% surge compared to the costs recorded three years prior, according to an IBM report.

Companies need help, but it is not often easy.

“Defending companies from cyber threats is a complex problem that can only be solved when leading technology companies work together to make security solutions more robust and easier to manage,” said Haggai Polak, Chief Product Officer, Securonix.

Securonix is among the companies taking the lead at evolving SIEM for today’s hybrid cloud, data-driven enterprises. Securonix Unified Defense SIEM provides organizations with a content-driven threat detection, investigation and response solution built with a highly scalable data cloud and a unified experience from the analyst to the CISO. The cloud-native solution enables organizations to scale up their security operations and keep up with evolving threats.

Back to Polak’s statement, leading technology companies need to work together, which is why Securonix recently announced a partnership with Wiz, a cloud security company and Cloud Native Application Protection Platform, or CNAPP, provider.

As part of the Wiz Integrations, or WIN, partner ecosystem, Securonix partnered with Wiz to deliver a unified approach to protecting digital assets, identifying risks, and proactively addressing security threats.

“Our collaboration with Wiz unites two industry leaders and introduces an innovative, cutting-edge approach to defending modern enterprises,” said Polak. “This partnership solves a huge problem for analysts and furthers our mission to deliver valuable products and services that make our customers and partners more secure.”

Securonix Unified Defense SIEM utilizes threat chains to connect diverse security events across an organization's infrastructure layers, offering enhanced visibility. When integrated with Wiz's cloud-specific insights, it enables security teams to pinpoint threats in their cloud environments, understanding the impact and blast radius on critical infrastructure.

By combining Securonix's advanced security analytics with Wiz's expertise in cloud-native security posture management, organizations can detect security events more effectively across on-premises and cloud environments. The Unified Defense SIEM's threat chains, aligned with industry-standard threat modeling, facilitate the correlation of related events, offering security analysts a comprehensive understanding of threats and enabling quick identification, prioritization, and remediation of risks.

Additionally, Wiz's cloud security research contributes to Securonix's threat content, ensuring security teams stay ahead of emerging threats in their cloud environments, enhancing overall proactive defense.

The long-story-short of it? The collaboration between Wiz and Securonix provides organizations with a robust security solution that improves threat detection, incident understanding and protection against evolving cloud-born threats.

"The Wiz and Securonix integration provides mutual customers with advanced cloud risk detection capabilities,” said Oron Noah, Director of Product Management, Wiz. “Wiz analyzes the complete cloud context, while Securonix analyzes behavior analytics. This combined solution quickly identifies anomalies, gives our joint customers a comprehensive view of their cloud environment. This is a winning formula."
