22 Jul Niara Recognized by CRN as a 2015 Emerging Vendor

Select List Features the Coolest Tech Startups Heating Up the IT Channel

Sunnyvale, Calif. – July 22, 2015Niara, a cybersecurity company focused on big data analytics, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

Niara launched from stealth in June, unveiling its Security Intelligence solution, the first of its kind to offer both the automated discovery of advanced threats using machine learning combined with advanced security analytics and forensics to help security teams quickly surface sophisticated cyber threats within their organizations. Built on a big data platform, the solution takes a holistic approach to security analytics by integrating behavioral analytics and raw, data-level analytics with deep forensics to enable compromised user discovery and identification of malicious insiders, threat hunting and incident investigation.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

Cyber attacks are more covert than ever before and evading detection because existing monitoring and response tools lack complete access to a network’s disparate data silos, providing inadequate visibility into an organization’s threat exposure and leaving them vulnerable to compromise. Niara’s Security Intelligence solution combines entity-centric analytics with behavioral techniques and forensics capabilities across diverse data sets to discover, investigate and respond to threats within an organization. Niara also provides security teams with the ability to identify and thread together subtle, nuanced changes in user device and application behavior across disparate data sources to discover threats.

“The Niara Security Intelligence platform enables enterprises to quickly discover and investigate threats that have already entered their network, bypassing existing threat prevention and detection systems,” said Sriram Ramachandran, CEO and co-founder of Niara. “We are honored to be named an Emerging Vendor by CRN, further validating the need for our technology to quickly and easily identify burgeoning cyber threats. We are seeing great momentum in this emerging market, and will continue to disrupt the security intelligence space with our unique approach to reducing organizational risk.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at www.crn.com.
