As an architectural solution, a security operations and analytics platform architecture (SOAPA) provides software services and interfaces for data exchange, product integration, and deep analysis of security data. This gives organizations the opportunity to replace existing point technologies or integrate individual technologies into a systematic architectural solution.
Enter Exabeam, a company focused on delivering its own architecture for security analytics and operations. Exabeam offers products for log management, user/entity behavior analysis (UEBA), and security operations automation/orchestration. Furthermore, each individual product can be combined into SOAPA for enterprise organizations.
I recently had a chance to interview Exabeam’s CMO, Rick Caccia, about SOAPA, Exabeam, and the ongoing security operations transformation. As a former employee of SIEM pioneer ArcSight, Rick has lots of experience and opinions about the history of security operations, what worked and what didn’t in the past, and the reasons why SOAPA aligns so well with enterprise security requirements today.
