March 6, 2017 : By Joseph Blankenship with Stephanie Balaouras , Bill Barringham , Peter Harrison

In our 36-criteria evaluation of security analytics (SA) providers, we identified the 11 most significant ones – BAE Systems, E8 Security, Fortinet, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Huntsman Security, IBM, Intel Security, LogRhythm, RSA, Securonix, and Splunk – and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report shows how each provider measures up and helps security and risk (S&R) professionals make the right choice.

Key Takeaways:

IBM, Splunk, LogRhythm, And RSA Lead The Pack

Forrester’s research uncovered a market in which IBM, Splunk, LogRhythm, and RSA lead the pack. HPE, Securonix, E8 Security, Fortinet, and Intel Security offer competitive options, while BAE Systems and Huntsman Security have developing solutions that show great promise.

S&R Pros Are Looking For Better Threat Detection And Improved Operations

The security analytics market is growing because S&R pros increasingly trust security analytics providers to solve key challenges and act as strategic partners, advising them on top S&R decisions.
