Ayehu Introduces Next Generation IT Automation and Orchestration Platform Integrated with Machine Learning Intelligence

Ayehu’s next generation platform, driven by machine learning intelligence, is a force multiplier for overwhelmed and understaffed IT and security operations teams.

Ayehu today introduced its next generation IT automation and orchestration platform for IT and security operations. With intelligent machine learning driven decision support, the platform dynamically creates rule-based recommendations, insights and correlations that provide the operator/analyst with suggestions for how to optimize fully- or semi-automated workflows.

Today’s IT and security operations teams are plagued by a seemingly continuous flood of alerts, incidents and requests. This is compounded by the fact that as businesses scale their systems complexity grows, placing an increased workload on an already inundated workforce. This trend combined with a highly-publicized shortage of skilled, talented workers across both IT and security, has driven the need for intelligence-backed, automated solutions.

“Our next generation platform is the evolution of our successful IT automation solution, designed around our customers’ direct feedback regarding their additional, specific needs,” said Gabby Nizri, CEO of Ayehu. “We believe automation should be simple to implement, manage and maintain, from one, unified platform. Now a SaaS ready platform, Ayehu allows customers and partners to gain efficiencies across their hybrid environments and provide their overworked operators and analysts with intelligent machine learning driven decision support, further increasing productivity. This is a game changer, and we can’t wait for our customers to experience the next generation of IT automation.”

The platform includes significant enhancements, including an architecture redesign to support hybrid deployments across on-premise, private and public cloud environments. It also enriches product security in areas such as message encryption across internal and external networks, and presents a refreshed user interface.

The next generation Ayehu IT automation and orchestration platform features:

  • SaaS Ready – Ideal for hybrid deployments, Ayehu supports multi-tenant, network encryption, OAuth2 authentication, and internal security improvementsHigh Availability and Scalability – Ayehu easily scales to support organizations with a high volume of incidents, and safe guards against a single-point-of-failure
  • Machine Learning Driven Support Decisions — Ayehu provides decision support via prompts to optimize workflows and dynamically creates rule-based recommendations, insights and correlations
  • Workflow Version Control – Ayehu is the first IT automation and orchestration platform to provide version control on workflows, allowing users to rollback changes and review, compare or revert workflows
  • Tagging and Labeling – Ayehu users can associate workflows with keywords through tags to quickly search and return commonly used workflows

Ayehu acts as a force multiplier, driving efficiency through a simple and powerful IT automation and orchestration platform. Ayehu helps enterprises save time on manual and repetitive tasks, accelerate mean time to resolution (MTTR), and maintain greater control over IT infrastructure. With Ayehu, IT and security operations teams can fully- or semi-automate the manual response of an experienced IT or security operator/analyst, including complex tasks across multiple, disparate systems. Ayehu’s response time is instant and automatic, executing pre-configured instructions without any programming required, helping to resolve virtually any alert, incident or crisis.

Ayehu will provide live demonstrations of its next generation platform at RSA Conference 2017 (San Francisco, Moscone Center, February 13 -17) in its booth # 4914 (North Expo Hall). The platform is currently in beta and will be generally available later this year.

Customers Benefit from New Level of Automation Functionality to Improve Incident Resolution for Maximum System Uptime

Ayehu, a leading provider of enterprise-grade automation and orchestration solutions for IT and Cyber Security Incident Response Automation, today announced that it has partnered with Everbridge to extend its IT Alerting solution with added automation and integration capabilities. The partnership results in improved IT incident communications and faster incident resolution for maximum system uptime and reduced costs.

For many organizations, common IT incident resolution processes include detection, incident logging, IT staff notification and remediation. This is a fragmented process that involves time-consuming manual activities and communications. Ayehu eyeShare’s integration with Everbridge IT Alerting fills this gap by providing closed-loop workflows with automated targeted notifications to fix IT issues faster and reduce costs for every incident.

“Even very short service outages and interruptions can be extremely damaging to organizations. At Ayehu, we are experts in seamlessly integrating with partner platforms and applications to automate IT tasks and processes that drastically improve results across the board,” said Ayehu CEO, Gabby Nizri. “By combining Ayehu’s automation technology with Everbridge’s IT Alerting, customers will benefit with greater efficiencies, faster resolutions and less costly downtime.”

Ayehu’s integration with Everbridge will automatically notify the right IT staff of an issue via multiple communication channels, allowing them to perform the necessary remediation steps directly from their smartphone. This process reduces the time needed to restore critical services, minimizes service desk calls from impacted customers and improves overall incident management and critical communications processes to both internal and external resolvers, employees, executives and customers.

“By integrating with technologies like Ayehu’s eyeShare, we can further streamline and improve the critical communications process during an outage by offering automated workflow remediation,” said Vincent Geffray, Sr. Director, IT Alerting, Everbridge. “As IT incidents continue to rise, we remain committed to finding the best possible ways for organizations to minimize disruption, effectively communicate during IT incidents and stay on track.”

Additionally, Ayehu will enable Everbridge to add extensive integration capabilities to its platform.  As a result, customers will be able to easily and securely integrate their on-premise and cloud applications to Everbridge using Ayehu.

Ayehu eyeShare is an agentless solution that automates simple, repetitive IT tasks as well as complex processes spanning across multiple IT systems, resulting in lower costs, higher levels of efficiency and improved availability of mission-critical systems.

Ayehu Automation Software Makes Gartner’s List of Security Operations, Analytics and Reporting Solutions

Ayehu Security Incident Response Automation Software Mentioned in Latest Gartner Research ReportAyehu Software Technologies Ltd., leading provider of enterprise-grade IT process automation software solutions is pleased to announce its inclusion in the latest report from respected IT research firm Gartner (#3166239). In this most recent publication, Ayehu was listed as a trusted provider of automation for security operations, analytics and reporting (SOAR) needs.

The 15 page report, entitled Innovation Tech Insight for Security Operations, Analytics and Reporting, examines how SOAR technologies go hand in hand with workflow management and automation. When strategically aligned, these two critical business areas will provide security operations teams with the ability to prioritize and automate much of their day to day activities, as well as collect, compile and report relevant data to enable better business decision making.

Some of the key takeaways of the report include identification of the three primary types of SOAR technology (security incident response, security operations automation and threat/vulnerability management) as well as how SOAR works in conjunction with vulnerability assessment (VA), governance, risk and compliance (GRC), security information and event management (SIEM) and user/entity behavior analytics (UEBA).

Furthermore, the Gartner report sheds light on the fact that few individual SOAR solutions are capable of effectively addressing the entire security operations management (SOM) life cycle. To combat this, the research firm recommends that security operations teams use available technologies to assess risk and vulnerability, prioritize operational activities, automate and enforce response and remediation workflows and more. Among the list of security automation software vendors is Ayehu’s eyeShare product.

“Gartner is certainly one of, if not the most respected authorities in the realm of IT research and reporting,” comments Gabby Nizri, Co-Founder and CEO of Ayehu, Inc. “Once again, we are truly honored to be recognized for our dedication and commitment to the IT automation industry. More importantly, we hope this report will help security operations teams to better arm themselves against the many threats that are out there so they can keep their organizations safe.”

Yuval Molnar of Payoneer is Ayehu’s Most Recent IT Process Automation Super Hero Of The Month

Ayehu Software Names Most Recent Recipient of IT Process Automation Super Hero of the Month Award as Yuval Molnar of PayoneerAyehu Software Technologies Ltd., industry leading developer and marketer of enterprise-grade IT Process Automation solutions has just named the most recent recipient of its Super Hero of the Month Award.

This month, Ayehu has chosen Yuval Molnar and Production Team of Payoneer. Molner was specifically chosen for his use of IT Process Automation to streamline and improve efficiency for his team and his organization as a whole.

Molner serves as a Production Support Team Leader at Payoneer. In this role, he is tasked with managing a team of support professionals as they handle incoming requests and monitor/manage the process from initial contact through resolution. Up until recently, most, if not all of these tasks were being handled manually, a time-consuming process that was riddled with risk of user error and other compliance problems.

In late 2014, Payoneer’s new VP of IT Operations, Yaron Weiss, introduced the eyeShare product, which he already had experience using with his previous employer. The first process automated was system monitoring, the majority of which is now handled by the event-manager function.  They’ve also created workflows that allow certain non-R&D users to send inquires directly through the eyeShare system and receive immediate response with the requested data. This has vastly improved the department’s efficiency.

With eyeShare, Molner’s team can now keep track of their services by running multiple queries directly within the database, and can separate the results according to severity level. In addition, they now have the ability to grant users direct and controlled access to the database so they can extract any information needed without involving the production team in the process. The permission set-up allows Molner’s group to control exactly which user can request each report in order to obey compliance requirements.

“eyeShare has allowed us to reduce repetitive tasks by enabling internal users to access information on their own,” comments Molnar. “In addition to automating our monitoring process and enabling us to calibrate the actions taken for each event based on severity, the system also keeps us informed about crucial errors occurring in real-time with our services. Overall, eyeShare has dramatically improved the way we work.”

Ayehu’s coveted Super Hero of the Month award is designed to recognize professionals who are using IT Process Automation to improve the way their organizations run. Any individual or team who uses the eyeShare product in businesses of any size or industry may be eligible to receive this award.

About Payoneer

Payoneer connects businesses, professionals, countries and currencies with an innovative cross-border payments platform.
