With the compromise and misuse of identity emerging as a serious threat plane, the prospect of preventing data exfiltration through phishing and social attacks has become an amplified and urgent concern. Heightening security leaders’ alarm is the realization that IAM (identity and access management) has outlived its standalone usefulness, and that a profound discovery gap exists with privileged access, where the majority of these access entitlements are unaccounted for in most organizations.
Cloud security analytics (CSA) has greatly expanded the breadth of use cases within advanced security analytics. This range of use case categories within advanced security analytics should be one of the first factors prospective customers should examine when considering adoption of an advanced security analytics solution. The scope of this white paper addresses the specific use cases of cloud security analytics.
With the deadline looming, organizations are beginning to tool up to comply with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation. Failure to do so for all companies interfacing with any private citizen of the EU’s data will have stiff financial consequences. This white paper explores the aspects of user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), along with identity analytics (IdA), and how they work to address a critical component of the GDPR requirements.
A behavior analytics solution’s capability for the delivery of risk scores with automated risk response has become a critical component for a number of forward-looking security leaders. The acceptance of feedback and data in a closed-loop deployment, as well as a vendor’s ability to facilitate customized use case requirements are key to addressing these needs.
User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) solutions monitor user and entity behavior in corporate networks detecting anomalies indicating potential threats from behavior profiles and patterns by applying algorithms, statistical analysis, and machine learning techniques.
Hacker innovations continue to rise unabated alongside leveraging compromised accounts, while traditional signatures, rules and patterns within defenses offer minimal capability to detect them. User/Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) plays a key role in addressing these critical issues. Learn more about the top use cases for UEBA and the environments where industry leaders are deploying this technology.
While most organizations put their focus on defending against and detecting cyber attacks, a more insidious threat is on the rise. Information security (InfoSec) professionals say that insider attacks are far more difficult to detect and prevent than external attacks, and insider threats have become more frequent in the past year.
Identity theft is a high stakes growing concern for organizations yet as the risks increase, employee awareness of the danger remains low. Add to that, modern data attackers employ unconventional methods to deceive users into becoming victims of account compromise.
With modern day insider threats on the rise and privileged access widely acknowledged as a prime target of hackers, customers employing traditional security solutions are recognizing growing challenges: the inability to discover both unknown privileged access and privileged access abuse.
Gurucul Risk Analytics provides an interesting approach that combines access governance, risk management and the detection of cyber threats. Unlike other solutions that focus on network traffic or technical vulnerabilities this solution focuses on identity, access and user activity to detect and prioritize risk.
Although Identity and Access Management has traditionally been viewed as either Technology or Information Security initiatives, it really represents a business initiative implemented by technology, and Security Risk Assessment teams.
As enterprise computing has left the confines of the data center and moved into the cloud and onto mobile devices, identity and access management has become an essential means for managing identities and helping to secure an organization’s systems and information assets.
Information Security is responsible for maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability of data. This includes protecting information and information systems from unauthorized access, usage, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording or destruction, regardless of the form of data (electronic, print, or other forms).
