Safeway - Exabeam

The benefits of using a user behavior intelligence solution

The Challenge:
Safeway was looking to implement security controls to monitoring for insider threats and lateral movement. This monitoring needed to analyze the usage and behavior of corporate employees interacting with the point-of-sale systems on their retail network.

The Solution:
By implementing Exabeam’s user and entity behavior analysis (UEBA) solution, Safeway was able to identify risky, anomalous behavior within their corporate and retail networks and tie it back to the responsible users. Additionally, Exabeam Advanced Analytics greatly increased the efficiency of the Safeway SOC team through the use of its pre-built incident timelines that enabled all analysts, including the more junior and recent hires, to quickly perform incident investigations.

The Result:
After implementing Exabeam Advanced Analytics, Safeway achieved significant cost savings resulting from an increase in analyst productivity. This productivity gain translated into a reduction in headcount requirements within their security operations center (SOC) team, and thus a tangible ROI for the project.
