The case for managed XDR

With increasing international tensions across government and private sectors, organizations struggle to mitigate external and internal cyber threats. In particular, the access provided to an organization’s users allows them to circumvent existing security controls and can be used to create risks deliberately or inadvertently, such as data loss or privilege abuse. According to the Cost of a Data Breach Report 2022, the cost of a data breach in 2022 was $4.35 million — a 12% increase over the past two years.

As organizations move infrastructure into the cloud and adopt hybrid work models, the ability to secure employees through even a tightly-controlled corporate network becomes more challenging. Increasingly, workers depend on cloud-based applications and communicate across social media, personal email, and chat clients outside of the purview of IT. As a result, insider threats are an increasing concern to security operations teams.  

Human behavior and psychology also play a significant role in defining an organization’s security posture. User behavior is always the weakest security link; seeing lateral movement and managing this vector is critical for any organization’s cyber security goals. After all, anyone can fall prey to phishing attacks despite extensive security training. To meet these challenges, Deloitte and Exabeam have teamed up to help organizations better manage insider threats and deliver improved resilience.

The Deloitte and Exabeam joint solution 

Deloitte has collaborated with Exabeam to deliver the Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) by Deloitte solution that employs Exabeam behavioral analytics capabilities to assess normal behavior of users and entities. The combination of analytics and automation capabilities of MXDR by Deloitte can help their clients effectively detect, assess and escalate high-risk indicators of insider activity.  

Managing a Security Operations Center (SOC) is a challenging and costly endeavor, but central visibility, controls, and points of escalation are critical in a world with constant cyberattacks. This problem is compounded by the challenge of hiring and retaining experienced cyber security professionals. Regardless of the geography, maturity, company size, or the market in which you compete, having a robust security operations capability is a must-have. Central to the SOC function should not only be a solution that detects known external threats, but also detects and mitigates insider threat risks.

Exabeam Security Analytics

Exabeam security analytics is the world’s most deployed behavioral analytics and security operations platform for cybersecurity threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR). Security analytics are “vendor neutral”. Exabeam leverages a robust common information model that can normalize and absorb logs and data from your entire security stack. These security analytics represent a powerful user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) layer on top of existing SIEM and log management technologies, and an industry-leading Open XDR solution that complement any technology tooling to detect previously unseen attacks, prioritize incidents, and guide more accurate and effective responses. Security analytics automate combining weak signals from multiple sources into event timelines, analyzing credential and device activity to establish normal behavior — and quickly locating anomalies to inform security analysts of increased risk as well as providing prescriptive advice for the corresponding remediation..   

By including Exabeam security analytics, SOC analysts can detect a variety of security threats and vulnerabilities other solutions can’t find. Key features include:

  • Identifying and mitigating lateral movement
  • Detecting data exfiltration
  • Detecting compromised credentials
  • Detecting service account abuse or tampering
  • Identifying compromised servers and endpoints


With Exabeam security analytics as an integral part of the MXDR by Deloitte services, clients can be better protected against advanced attacks. Your organization will be able to quickly detect, investigate, and respond to both external and internal threats such as ransomware, malware, or advanced phishing attacks that trick users into giving up their credentials.
