Dell Teams with Securonix to Provide Advanced Security Analytics for Active Directory and Enterprise Applications
Dell today announced a technology partnership with Securonix to improve the security of data in Active Directory (AD) and other enterprise application environments. The partnership combines the unique insights delivered by the Dell Change Auditor product with actionable security intelligence capabilities provided by Securonix.
Dell is committed to delivering solutions to market that arm organizations with the identity analytics and intelligence capabilities needed to safeguard against today’s threat landscape. Dell’s partnership with Securonix gives customers the much needed insight into their Microsoft Infrastructure and Identity Management domains.
Securonix is the pioneer of user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) for cyber security. The company’s products combine the latest advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence with advanced anomaly detection techniques to accurately predict, prevent, detect and respond to threats in real time.

Combine this with the time-consuming, cumbersome processes for change reporting and access logging for AD and enterprise applications, and organizations struggle with:
Technology partnership improves security of data in AD environments
Dell Change Auditor delivers easy-to-digest logs for AD and Windows environments to help IT, security and compliance teams audit, alert, protect and report on user and administrator activity, configuration, and application changes. It helps enterprises prevent the risk of system downtime, misuse of sensitive data, failed audits and security breaches, while ensuring business management can prove to auditors and internal stakeholders that compliance and security policies are enforced throughout the organization. Securonix is a security intelligence platform that relies on signature-less technology for the detection, monitoring, investigation and management of information security threats and risks. It uses a behavior-based threat prediction, detection and prevention engine that mines, enriches, analyzes, prioritizes, and transforms machine data into actionable intelligence. Combining the strengths of Change Auditor and Securonix enables customers to:
"Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD) has evolved into the most widely used enterprise repository for digital identities. AD’s growing importance also means it’s a tempting target for hackers who attack AD infrastructure to elevate privileges and pilfer data. Increasing AD security requirements have led to the creation of targeted solutions."1
"We’re thrilled to partner with Dell. Our technical integration resolves critical security vulnerabilities for Active Directory users by combining best of breed event monitoring capabilities with security analytics. Together we’re saving IT organizations time and money while enhancing their ability to rapidly detect the stealthiest security threats in their environment."
Dell Change Auditor and Securonix are sold separately. Both are available now.
