3. Exabeam Advanced Analytics | Data Sheet

Today’s credential-based threats are complex, often touching many systems, using multiple logins, and spanning a period of several months. These insider threats involve the legitimate credentials and access privileges of real users, making them challenging for legacy security solutions to detect. In order to tackle these insidious threats, organizations need a solution built from the ground up using modern technologies such as machine learning, behavioral analysis, and data science. Learn how Exabeam Advanced Analytics can help.

4. Top Four Cyberthreats Challenging The Banking Industry and How to Address Them | Guide

In this guide, we will explore some of the most prevalent external cyberthreats facing banks and how you can tackle them head-on.

8. The Importance of Automated Cyberthreat Response | Video

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Exabeam CEO, Mike DeCesare, discusses evolving XDR trends. It’s critical to enable companies to not only see what is going on in their IT environments, but to also quickly react; and “sheer manpower” is no longer sufficient to respond to the evolving surge of cyberthreats. “Companies are going to have to allow their cybersecurity products — and especially the easier things to block — to just block those [threats] automatically,” he says.

9. 21 Top Cybersecurity Threats and How Threat Intelligence Can Help | Blog 

Cybersecurity threats continue to grow and evolve in frequency, vector, and complexity. Get a quick, up-to-date review of 21 cybersecurity threats and how to gain the information you need to prevent data breaches and bolster your information security.

10. Are You Thinking About Shifting Your SIEM to the Cloud? | Blog 

Cloud-delivered SIEM solutions are becoming increasingly popular, and more businesses are looking to move their SIEMs to the cloud to save costs and cut down on operational overhead. While you may have many questions, the big ones should be: How am I using my SIEM now? How can I take advantage of all the benefits of cloud-delivered technologies to achieve even more? 

11. The Next Wave of Innovation in SIEM, Security Analytics, and TDIR | Blog

When speaking to customers and prospects about their cybersecurity challenges and the struggles they face using the incumbent set of technologies, it’s a consistent chorus of two main concerns: 

  1. Their SIEM isn’t designed for big data workloads. It can barely keep up with alerts, but they also want to collect all manners of logs and additional context because, without that, they are back to having limited visibility.
  2. Tools they use for threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR) are uninspiring; they lack intuition and an understanding of the role of the analyst who spends a significant amount of time using them.

It’s loud and clear: something has to change. Read the article to learn more about Exabeam’s next-generation cybersecurity platform, featuring: cloud-scale data collection and transformation, storage without limits, and powerful visualizations.

12. The Benefits of UEBA Technology with Industry Experts at the Helm | Blog 

Best-in-class security technology complements great expertise, and vice versa. To significantly improve your security posture, you need both. User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) technology is a game-changing development for the cybersecurity industry. These tools allow security policies to evolve beyond the application of static rulesets and detect a far wider range of suspicious activities in the enterprise. Read the article to learn more about behavioral insights enhanced with machine learning and the value of detection and response expertise.

13. Ransomware: Bigger, Better, and Still Going Strong | Blog

It is evident that ransomware attacks are still apparent and on the rise. In 2021, ransomware attacks increased by 13 percent year over year — more than the past five years combined. Organizations are understandably concerned about their ability to not only prevent attacks but to recover should they be targeted. Addressing the problem in its entirety is a common defensive oversight — especially, for example, at the point where ransomware performs reconnaissance on systems before initiating. Empowering oneself with the correct knowledge can help one to begin to understand the likelihood of an emerging threat, and thus allow an organization to take necessary precautionary measures. Read the article to learn about the ransomware landscape, the human element of ransomware, and addressing the emerging ransomware threat. 

14. Exabeam in Action: Stopping Lapsus$ in Their Tracks | Blog

What makes Lapsus$ attacks so difficult to detect is that the intrusion appears to be coming from authorized users. When credentials are stolen or purchased, and used to move laterally within an organization, nearly all security teams are unable to detect abnormal behavior associated with legitimate credentials. This is the story of an Exabeam customer that used Fusion SIEM to identify, investigate, and remove the evasive Lapsus$ criminal hacking group from their environment.

15. One Week of Gartner Security & Risk Summit 2022 in 10 Minutes | Blog

Unlike RSA, which seems to have been dominated by cybersecurity vendors’ marketing and product demos, the Gartner Summit was an opportunity for Gartner analysts to share their insights gathered across thousands of customer and vendor interactions, and countless surveys and interviews. There was also an expo floor with many security vendors. This article will cover all the buzzwords-du-jour, such as secure access service edge (SASE), extended detection and response (XDR), zero trust, cybersecurity mesh architecture (CMA), identity threat detection and response (ITDR), and more. 

16. What Forrester Consulting is Saying About the ROI From Exabeam SIEM | Webinar

It’s not often you see the four-letter term, SIEM, in the same sentence with the three-letter term, ROI. Well, now you can. Learn how a group of Exabeam Fusion SIEM customers achieved a composite ROI of 245% over three years, with a payback period of less than six months. That’s what the Exabeam Fusion Total Economic Impact(™) (TEI) study by Forrester Consulting revealed. In this webinar, we examine the measurable benefits of Exabeam Fusion SIEM and share how you too can transform your security operations using the Exabeam Fusion Platform.

17. Using a Layered Approach to Improve Ransomware Detection and Response | White Paper

Ransomware cost the world $20 billion in 2021, and it’s here to stay. Entry can come at any time through multiple attack vectors, so what can security leaders do to prevent ransomware’s destructive effects? The Exabeam Security Research Team reviewed the characteristics of four recent ransomware attacks.
