Identity & Access Analytics

Real-Time Access Control Automation Using Risk and Intelligence

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Identity is the new perimeter and securing identities, establishing privileged access policies, and implementing zero trust programs are critical to protect organizations from threat actors. The rise of credential theft, modern day insider threats, and privileged access misuse equates to security teams needing to baseline current access policies, monitor for identity threats, both internal and external, and work cross-functionally for continuous improvement.

One significant challenge for security teams is a lack of understanding of unaccounted for access entitlements. This exposes serious security gaps that threat actors can easily exploit to compromise organizations, move laterally, and exfiltrate data. Identity baselining, understanding access privileges and entitlements with subsequent monitoring is critical as part of threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR). Identity Access Management (IAM) and Privileged Access Management (PAM) can also take advantage of Identity Analytics to improve their access policies and entitlements.

CRITICAL CAPABILITIES

To reduce the attack surface area posed by access, Gurucul Identity & Access Analytics uses a risk-based approach for access requests and approvals to identify and remove excess access, access outliers, and orphaned/dormant accounts.

  • Using big data, gain a true 360-degree view of identity, access, privileged access, usage in the cloud, mobile and on-premises
  • Accurately measure and report user, account, entitlement, application, departmental, and organization risk posture
  • Easily identify unnecessary and unused outlier access for reduced attack surface
  • Centralize governance, visibility, and reporting for access-based risks
  • Run contextual searches on IAM data to mine linked users, accounts, entitlements, and structured and unstructured data
  • Leverage 100+ reports out-of- the-box, with the capability to customize, schedule and automate reports

WHY GURUCUL?

Comprehensively manage and monitor identity-based risks and threats across your organization’s siloed environments.

Deliver the data science that improves IAM and PAM, enriching existing identity management investments and accelerating deployments. Surpass human capabilities by leveraging machine learning models to define, review and confirm accounts and entitlements for access.

Leverage dynamic risk scores and advanced analytics data as key indicators for provisioning, de-provisioning, authentication, and privileged access management.

Radically reduce accounts and entitlements. Clean up the access plane to enable access only where it should be provided.

Enable Zero Trust initiatives and monitor for least privileged access misuse and violations. Baseline current access privileges and policies and use this to build an effective zero trust program. Continuously monitor for misuse such as insider threats and stolen credentials.

TOP USE CASES

Privileged Access Abuse

Privileged Access Intelligence and Zero Trust Monitoring

Discover, risk rank, and monitor accounts with privileged access for outlier access and anomalous behavior. Find who has privileged access with privileged entitlements that may have escalated after provisioning or exist within applications and unstructured data.

Risky Account Discovery & Cleanup

Risky Account Discovery & Cleanup

Identify dormant and orphan accounts, reduce excess access, and eliminate access outliers. Reduce the risk of orphan or dormant accounts being compromised or misused.

Risk Based Access Certification

Risk Based Access Certification

Reduce rubber-stamping, time spent, and overall risk through outlier certification. Reduce access not associated with job responsibilities and potential account compromise risk.

Risk Based Authentication

Risk Based Authentication

Enable real-time risk-based access policy enforcement of authentication levels for user’s access to systems, devices, and applications.

Dynamic Access & Role Modeling

Dynamic Access & Role Modeling

Enable zero-day provisioning and automated approval workflows for higher risk access by inspecting inlier analytics. Import identities, accounts and entitlements with metadata, trigger risk-based outlier access certifications, and provide closed-loop integration with access certification actions.

SoD Intelligence
