Traditional security tools were not designed to detect lateral movement – when an attacker compromises or gains control of one asset and then moves internally within the network to others. Once in, these adversaries scour the network to find vulnerable systems, compromise other accounts, escalate privileges, and ultimately exfiltrate data or cause other damage. Traditional security tools are unable to distinguish between an attacker’s lateral movement and normal user behavior. This allows these adversaries to remain undetected and extend dwell time for weeks or months while expanding the attack.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Why lateral movement is a challenge for most organizationsX
- How behavioral analytics can identify attacks involving lateral movement
- How Exabeam helps with threat detection investigation and response for this use case
