Shining a Light on Threat Detection, Investigation, and Response – Exabeam’s Spotlight21

Exabeam, the security analytics and automation company, has announced the upcoming dates for its fourth annual users’ conference, Spotlight21, which will be held as a hybrid event on October 4-6, 2021. This premier event provides the global Exabeam user community the opportunity to hear about Exabeam’s latest products vision, get a sneak peek of its cloud-delivered Exabeam Fusion SIEM and Exabeam Fusion XDR roadmap, share feedback, learn about new best practices for threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR), exchange ideas, and network with peers—all with the shared goal of making security success the norm for their organisations.

The theme of this year’s event is “Outsmart the Odds.” Outdated cybersecurity tools and legacy approaches stack the odds against security teams and keep them in the dark. Exabeam, the only security company to offer automation across the full TDIR workflow, shines a light. Exabeam customers will learn how to get more out of their Exabeam Fusion SIEM and Exabeam Fusion XDR deployments and learn how their peers use Fusion products to modernise security operations and tip the scales back in their favour.

“Exabeam users are on the front lines of global security operations centres across industries of all types, taking on sophisticated adversaries with an ever-advancing arsenal of attack tactics and techniques—they inspire us to continuously innovate and align with the vision and passion they exude daily to protect their organisations,” said Michael DeCesare, CEO and president, Exabeam. “We look forward to our entire community coming together and sharing the high-value, actionable content that defines Spotlight, and to hear their feedback to drive further innovation. Attendees will walk away with information they can immediately use to improve SOC outcomes, making Spotlight21 a must-attend event.”

Spotlight21 content and sessions will be delivered virtually along with select in-person entertainment and networking elements. Users will have access to Exabeam leaders and experts across the company’s product, engineering, and customer success teams. Partner sponsor booths will provide multiple opportunities for community collaboration throughout the conference.

Spotlight21 will feature:
