Malicious Insider - Exabeam

Malicious Insider

Detect rogue insiders, keeping the business safe.

A reliable defense

A malicious insider is an insider who intends to cause damage to the organization for personal gain.

Because of their access and knowledge of the organization’s most valuable assets, attacks involving malicious insiders are harder to identify and remediate than those that originate from outside the organization.

To minimize harm to an organization, insider threat teams need a reliable method to monitor, detect, investigate, respond, and report on threats from malicious insiders.

Recognize data leaks

Data leaks can closely resemble normal activity, making them challenging to detect.

Exabeam combines DLP alerts with authentication, access, and contextual data sources into a timeline of all a user’s activity.

With a complete picture of a user’s activity, analysts can determine if the insider is acting with malicious intent and spend their time investigating actual risks,


Data Leakage

To reduce the risk of a data leak, organizations must be able to use behavior to understand the context and risk associated with incidents. Understanding context enables organizations to recognize malicious instances of a data leak.

Data access abuse

Malicious insiders abuse their privilege to access sensitive corporate data.

Exabeam identifies access abuse by baselining normal user activity to detects deviations from this normal behavior.

Flagging anomalous activity helps security teams detect a malicious insider abusing data access, preventing them from causing greater harm to their organization.


Data Access Abuse

Instead of forcing analysts to connect the dots across data silos, Exabeam automatically assembles alerts, activity and contextual data and analyzes it from the point of view of the user, reducing the likelihood of missing a threat from the inside.

Uncover audit tampering

A malicious insider with knowledge of auditing and event logging can tamper or clear logs to circumvent their detection.

Exabeam enriches flagged abnormal activity with the user and business context data, so analysts can determine if an insider is tampering with audit logs and acting with malicious intent.


Audit Tampering

Exabeam automatically assembles all alerts, activity and contextual data and analyzes it from the point of view of the user to create a comprehensive, reliable record of user activity, if the underlying logs have been altered or deleted.

Detect abnormal destruction of file data

A malicious insider may intentionally destroy critical business information in order to disrupt operations or cause financial harm.

Exabeam baselines user activity and flags abnormalities in the number of files deleted to help detect malicious insiders motivated to wreak havoc on an organization.


Data Destruction

Exabeam gives complete visibility into malicious insiders destroying data. Our Smart Timelines automatically capture and assemble all activity data, including events leading up to and after file deletions.

Suspicious behavior on privileged accounts

Exabeam helps organizations detect and respond to unusual behavior by privileged accounts as well as privileged activity by non-privileged users.

Exabeam can detect suspicious behavior and misuse, such as: using a privileged account to elevate privileges, abnormal access to classified or sensitive documents, or abusing the privileged access of service and executive accounts.


Privilege Access Abuse

Instead of forcing analysts to connect the dots across data silos, Exabeam automatically assembles alerts, activity and contextual data and analyzes it from the point of view of the user, reducing the likelihood of missing a threat from the inside.

Physical access security

Exabeam detects changes in user behavior, like user badges into a building for the first time or when a user travels the distance between two geographical locations at an impossible speed.

These incidents could show an employee who has shared their badge or be a malicious insider attempting to access, manipulate, or destroy critical physical assets.

At-risk employees

Exabeam helps identify and monitor users who are exhibiting signs of leaving (At-Risk) an organization or communicating with a competitor.

Analysts can quickly determine if an employee is exhibiting signs of leaving based on rich-contextual information and specific activity patterns. With customized response plans analysts can take action fast.


Workforce Protection

Leveraging machine learning and user behavior analysis to baseline normal behavior for every user, device, and peer group, Exabeam automatically detects the abnormal behaviors that indicate an at-risk employee.

Monitor abnormal authentication and access

Exabeam helps organizations detect and respond to malicious insiders performing abnormal authentication, and interactions outside of their typical usage or behavior patterns.

To do so, Exabeam models the large volume of events to identify unusual behavioral patterns.

Data Insight Models provide security analysts with the reasoning and analysis behind behavioral models and rules.
