Director of Intellectual Property Protection at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Real User
Spotter tool has helped us eliminate many hours required to manually create link analysis diagrams

What is our primary use case?

I run the intellectual property protection shop for the company and our primary use case is to monitor for DLP.

Pros and Cons

  • "What I like most is that the threat models and risk scoring are very accurate and very helpful to the analysts on my team. They help highlight the most important things for them to look at."
  • "The second feature is that within the SNYPR product there is a functionality called Spotter. We use that for link analysis diagrams and to run the stats command. That's extremely useful because it replaces a tedious, manual process we used to use, using Microsoft Excel and a couple of other methods, to bring data together."
  • "A helpful feature would be an event export. A way to create more substantial summary reports would be nice."

What other advice do I have?

The single thing I recommend most is understanding your environment and being able to articulate the risk and threat models. Securonix is very good now, better than when we first bought them, because we were early adopters. We're in the pharmaceutical space and they didn't have very many Pharmas. They were very good at financial institutions, the banks, the credit card companies and that sort of data, but when it came to risk and threat models for Pharma, we were so successful because we knew what we wanted. I had studied insider threat and behavior analysis for quite a while before we brought…

With a lot of data in one console, the time we require to investigate alerts and threats has decreased

What is our primary use case?

Data loss protection and account misuse are our primary use cases. We're utilizing it to help identify and correlate user behavior to identify potential data loss as well as to detect certain types of fraud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The customizability of the tool is valuable. We are able to customize the use cases and create them easily without a large amount of Securonix assistance. It's very flexible. We do not have to rely on Professional Services to modify or create a new use case."
  • "Other than issues with the training, there have been issues with the encryption. There have also been issues with some of the reporting, minor glitches that they have fixed as they've gone along."

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson we have learned from using Securonix is to start small. Don't throw everything at it. Start with one single use case and build out. Don't throw all the use cases into it at once. Otherwise, it's too much work, you get flooded with too much data, you can't focus on what's important, and you can't clean it as quickly. You can clean it, but it will take a lot of time. My advice is to go with the cloud solution and, as I said, start small. Don't try to ingest everything at once. And don't create use cases for everything under the sun. Because we're on-prem, we've had to both…
