Existing security technologies are failing to help security teams detect and effectively respond to modern cyber-attacks — typically using valid, stolen credentials — due to limited understanding of user behaviour, an incomplete view of the attack, and an overwhelming amount of security noise. As a result, SOCs suffer from a shortage of staff with the time and ability to conduct extensive, manual investigations.
Exabeam provides user behaviour analytics, leveraging existing log data to detect modern attacks, prioritize incidents efficiently, and help valuable SOC staff respond effectively. User behaviour analytics analyses actual behaviour to determine risk and to inform overburdened security analysts about potential attacks, as well as how to remediate them. Done correctly, UBA adds a powerful analytics layer over existing security technologies, detecting new attacks, prioritizing incidents, and guiding a more effective response.
