west_logo2016The United States is facing more technological and security challenges than ever before. Identifying the right solutions for the unique and pressing needs of the military and government are just some of the issues that will be discussed during the upcoming AFCEA WEST Conference and Exhibition, on Feb. 17-19, 2016, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego California.

Experts from both GuidePoint (GuidePoint Security) and Exabeam will be on hand in booth #1011 to provide valuable insight on technological services, strategic solutions related to national cybersecurity issues, and concerns about protecting critical information and data.

GuidePoint delivers innovative solutions that address the tough security challenges facing the country’s defense and armed forces divisions. Exabeam is a user behavior analytics solution that leverages existing log data to quickly detect advanced attacks and accelerate incident response.

GuidePoint’s team of experts will be focusing on services including Identity Access Management (IdAM), which specializes in deploying Security Access Managers (SAM) and seamlessly integrating the customer’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to meet the goal of securing sites and applications while safeguarding data.

Consider the most devastating information breaches of the decade, involving insiders like Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden; solutions must include the means to stop such access threats while ensuring that classified information remain protected and in the hands of authorized users only.

GuidePoint’s IdAM solution delivers the necessary layer of protection to stop such incidents while safeguarding valuable data. IdAM is a culmination of over two years of work by the GuidePoint federal services team, who set out to develop a solution that would provide the simplicity of a single information system while providing PKI authentication and authorization for hundreds of web applications.

Through GuidePoint’s unique services, organizations are able to strengthen their security posture and improve the ease of use of their web applications. This secures the agency from insider threats while simultaneously meeting the requirements of current policies and directives in regard to information access.

Exabeam, a leader in security analytics and intelligence solutions, will demonstrate its user behavior analytics and threat hunting software. The product enables security analysts to detect insider threats and external hackers within a network, to hunt for new threats on the network, and to automate investigation and response. Detection includes key signals such as lateral movement and privilege escalation. Threat hunting includes searching for user sessions based on any combination of attributes or activities. Investigation includes automatically stitching together all activities and context related to an attack and presenting that in a way that even Tier 1 analysts can understand. The Exabeam demo will show all of the above to clearly highlight the productivity and security benefits of the solution. For more information visit www.exabeam.com.
