Australian Security Company Makes U.S. Launch with Focus on SIEM
16 April 2015 (Source: CRN) An Australian security company entered the U.S. market Thursday with a plan to both disrupt and complement established security vendors in the threat management market.
Huntsman Security, as it will be known in the U.S., offers a portfolio that includes a broad range of Security Information Event Management (SIEM) technology that provides real-time insight into preventing cyberattacks.
The U.S. launch of the company also includes the global release of the Huntsman Unified Console, which aggregates the output of SIEM environments from multiple vendors, including Splunk, Hewlett-Packard ArcSight, Q1 Labs and Huntsman Security’s own technology, into a single dashboard for a consolidated view of enterprise threats.
Tier-3, as it is known in Australia, already is established on a global scale, including in Australia, the United Kingdom and Japan. The company is recognized for developing a patented behavior anomaly detection technology.
As it breaks into the U.S. market, CEO Peter Woollacott said the company will compete with vendors such as AppSense; Q1 Labs; McAfee, part of Intel Security; and Splunk but also will collaborate with them as it works to aggregate their solutions in a single pane of glass.
“I think, in one sense, we’re definitely competing with them; no question about that,” Woollacott said. “But, in another sense we’re complementing them. … Being able to complement the capabilities of those technologies and give a global view of what’s happening at the enterprise is a significant step forward in the threat management process.”
