Use Case

  • Compliance

    Many organizations use manual processes and disparate security products to satisfy regulatory requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX). Often, these security controls are insufficient to meet most regulations, leaving organizations at risk for audit failure, fines and disclosure reporting.

    Exabeam offers a complete solution to meet and exceed a broad range of industry compliance mandates. Exabeam provides various built-in compliance reports that help prove to the auditors, that security controls are in place and work as designed. With the ability to handle unlimited log data and automate most compliance requirements, it’s time to get smart about compliance.

  • GDPR Use Case

    Ensure your Organization meets GDPR Requirements while Protecting Individual Privacy

    GDPR legislation is aimed at protecting the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens. GDPR applies to any company doing business with an EU organization or an individual. Stiff fines are imposed on organizations for non-compliance, which could be up to 4% of the organization’s worldwide annual revenue.

    Automate and Simplify GDPR compliance with Exabeam:

    Reduce external threats – As attackers continually refine their methodologies, GDPR mandates that organizations keep up with evolving threats by employing state-of-the-art technologies capable of scaling with the problem (articles 25 and 32).

    Exabeam’s Smart Timelines leverage behavioral analysis to continuously baseline normal behavior of all users and entities on the network. Any deviations from normal behavior are instantly flagged and assigned a risk score. This frees organizations from constantly writing and updating correlation rules to track evolving threats. By gathering all related events into a cohesive timeline, Exabeam helps organizations scale their detection, investigation, and response practices in ways previously unimaginable.

    Reduce internal threats – Threats originating from within the organization are often the most difficult to detect, as insiders may have intimate knowledge of systems and processes. GDPR directs organizations to carefully consider the risk of unauthorized access, alteration, destruction, or exfiltration of personal data at every stage of handling (Article 24).

    Identity and network access controls help organizations create a system protection framework but fail to account for the innumerable ways insiders accidently or maliciously disrupt these plans. Due to the prohibitive costs of storing logs in most products, organizations “cherry-pick” logs or ignore chatty logs such as endpoint detection and response solutions (EDR) leaving most insider actions untracked.

    Using Behavioral Analysis, Exabeam establishes baseline behavior to uncover abnormalities and deviations. Whether it’s a privilege escalation, or a related data exfiltration event, all threats are readily identified giving organizations unprecedented reduction of internal threats.

    Easy reporting with out-of-the-box compliance reports – To achieve GDPR compliance, organizations need to demonstrate that they monitor critical infrastructure holding personal data of EU citizens.
    Using a powerful compliance and forensics reporting engine, Exabeam generates a series of built-in, GDPR-specific reports, that help reduce the time to prove compliance to auditors.

    Protect employee Personally Identifiable Information (PII) – A critical GDPR requirement is to protect employee PII from unwarranted access. Exabeam provides role-based access control (RBAC) that can be used to enforce PII data masking.
    With Exabeam, risk-based actions representing potential network security incidents are surfaced to analysts—and ultimately to data privacy officers (DPOs) for de-masking when a credible risk has been identified. This maintains individual privacy and reduces false positives that can quickly overtax your security team.

    Reduce your breach response time to minimize data exposure – GDPR requires breach notification within 72 hours, but most organizations struggle to even know when one has occurred. Using traditional tools such as a conventional SIEM, it could take days, weeks, or even months to detect a breach, let alone understand its complete scope, and reduce data exposure. Exabeam’s Smart Timelines supercharge your detection, investigation, and response processes by automatically collecting all investigation artifacts in a single cohesive timeline. By applying behavior-based risk scoring, Exabeam can dampen the noise of false positives keeping your analyst focused on the real breach. Exabeam provides a streamlined incident detection, investigation, and response process to to exceed your GDPR breach detection and reporting requirements.

    Ensure that your organization complies with GDPR

  • PCI DSS Use Case

    Secure Credit Card Data and Accelerate PCI-DSS Compliance with Exabeam

    PCI-DSS promotes cardholder data security while facilitating broad, global adoption of consistent data security measures. PCI compliance is a must for any organization handling credit card data and failure to comply can result in daily penalties and fines.

    Automate and Simplify PCI-DSS compliance with Exabeam:

    Unlimited compliance logging and reporting – Monitoring and analyzing events, as well as having continuous visibility to maintain compliance, are crucial components of PCI-DSS. Exabeam’s unlimited security data lake can store over seven years’ worth of data, enabling comprehensive reports for internal compliance stakeholders and external auditors.

    Turn-key compliance reporting – Exabeam includes various out-of-the-box PCI-DSS compliance reports, such as “Failed VPN Logins” and “Remote Session Timeouts,” making it easy to prove compliance to any auditor.

    Early, accurate threat detection using behavioral analysis – Ensuring rapid threat detection is a key PCI DSS requirement. It also emphasizes continuous account monitoring—especially for privileged users and third-party vendors having special access. However, such credential use often appears legitimate, such that malicious activity potentially goes unnoticed.

    Exabeam’s Smart Timelines continuously baselines normal behavior of all users and entities on the network using behavioral analytics. Any deviations from normal behavior are instantly flagged and assigned a risk score. For every anomaly, Smart Timelines instantly provide context for security teams to triage, and take quick, decisive action. Supporting real-time risk scoring, Exabeam detects insider threats, compromised accounts, data loss, and other advanced threats via machine learning and behavioral analysis. It also accurately models the behavior of users, assets, and even alerts from other security solutions.

    Augment your PCI scope reduction efforts to save money – Most organizations limit PCI scope to lower the cost of the PCI DSS assessment, and lower the cost and difficulty of implementing and maintaining PCI DSS controls, and reduce risk for the entity. Exabeam’s Smart Timelines baseline normal behavior of all users and entities that are in scope for PCI. Exabeam can immediately flag PCI scope violations saving organizations from surprises during PCI audit time.

    Effective, automated incident response – Another PCI DSS tenet is to quickly and effectively respond to any incident. By storing all related events in a Smart Timeline database, Exabeam sees the entire attack chain not just pieces of it. With security orchestration and workflow automation integrated into Smart Timelines, Exabeam can investigate, contain, and mitigate all related security incidents in a semi- or fully automated manner. In doing so it leverages prebuilt API integrations with IT infrastructure and security solutions, eliminating tedious, manual tasks that free security teams to work on more important, value-add activities.

  • SOX Use Case

    Enforce Internal Controls and Reporting Requirements Necessary to meet SOX Compliance with Exabeam.

    SOX regulation aims to protect shareholders and the general public from accounting errors and fraudulent corporate practices, and to improve the accuracy of corporate disclosures.

    Automate and Simplify SOX compliance with Exabeam:

    Monitor security events including sensitive file access – Businesses operate in distributed environments leveraging internal and external (outsourced or cloud) infrastructure. To gain visibility for SOX compliance, logs must be collected from all of these operating environments. Exabeam’s unlimited log collection gives IT teams the edge needed to quickly and accurately identify risky activity related to financial reporting no matter where this activity may occur. To detect data tampering, Exabeam has built-in file monitoring models that track every file-related action—including initial access, attaching data to an email, downloading, or even writing to a USB drive. Exabeam also ingests log data across disparate threat vectors (e.g., cloud, database, email, application) and assembles it into a coherent activity chain.

    Detect compromised credentials – Ensuring that only authorized personnel have access to sensitive data is a fundamental control for financial systems. This includes preventing unauthorized, internal employees—as well as external actors—from obtaining credentials and initiating an attack chain.
    Exabeam accurately models the behavior of users, entities, and even alerts from other security solutions to prevent such activity. It quickly detects complex threats, then alert teams about suspicious activities—even those occurring through seemingly valid credential use. By revealing such anomalous activity, Exabeam provides the context for security teams to take quick, decisive action.

    Enable rapid investigation – SOX Section 302 requires organizations to implement systems that protect against data tampering, track timelines, and evaluate the who-what-where-when of data access. For insider threats—especially those involving lateral movement—it may be difficult and time-consuming, if not “impossible”, to create accurate incident timelines.

    Exabeam Security Intelligence Platform leverages user and entity behavior analytics to identify incidents, then automatically creates pre-built Smart Timelines to investigate them. Removing this burden from limited human resources, such automation helps fulfil the Section 302 requirement.

    Effective incident response – Prevention is a core tenet of SOX, and it has historically been the IT security focal point. But threats do occur, and incident response is a top priority.

    Exabeam tracks all threat related events in Smart Timelines thus eliminating the need to manually reconstruct the attack chain, a common complaint for analysts using most products. This helps automate tedious, manual tasks—freeing security teams to work on more important, value-add activities. Exabeam has created off-the-shelf incident response solutions, such as automated response workflows tied into Smart Timelines. This helps analysts remediate all related events resulting in effective and efficient incident response.


  • Threat Detection

    The number of threats enterprises are facing is rapidly increasing. Enterprises need to be wary of advanced threat vectors while being assured their SOC is compliant with security requirements.

    Organizations need the right tools for real-time monitoring and detection of known and unknown threats arriving from a variety of sources. SIEM solutions help by correlating data from disparate sources but fall short of revealing modern threats unless organizations invest expensive staff and technology.

  • Malicious Insider Threats Use Case

    Behavior Based Approach to Detecting Insider Threats

    An insider threat is a malicious threat coming from within your organization, such as employees, partners, contractors or other trusted individuals who have been granted system level access.

    They might be using access to your data or network for nefarious purpose, sabotaging your company, or stealing your intellectual property on their way out the door.

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Behavioral analysis – Exabeam tracks normal and abnormal user behaviors such as account switching, remote logins, database logins, and administrative asset logins to detect anomalous activity. Enriched by contextual data, all events are contained within a session. All risky behaviors within a session are assigned a risk score, with critical events being elevated to a higher score level.

    Aggregate all relevant events with risk reasons – Exabeam analyzes different data sources and aggregates all user behavior across multiple accounts and devices. The information is stitched into a coherent session to detect abnormalities like lateral movement.

    Smart Timelines – Most products build a timeline that tracks a single dimension such as IP address, hostname, or username. While this could yield a timeline of events, this misses critical parts of the attack such as privilege escalation used to gain access to other computers. Exabeam Smart Timeline uses machine learning and AI models to stitch together all events and gather all the evidence necessary to quickly investigate and prosecute malicious insider threats.


  • Compromised Insider Threats Use Case

    Behavior-based Approach to Detect Compromised Insiders

    A compromised insider is a victim of an external actor who has gained access to their device and/or user credentials via phishing, malware, or other common threats. An external actor uses hacked insider credentials to gain system access. When undetected, they can represent a long-term, advanced persistent threat (APT)—using stealth and continuous processes to infiltrate your organization.

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Behavioral analysis – Exabeam tracks normal and abnormal user behaviors such as account switching, remote logins, database logins, and administrative asset logins to detect anomalous activity. Enriched by contextual data, all events are contained within a session. All risky behaviors within a session are assigned a risk score, with critical events being elevated to a higher score level.

    Aggregate all relevant events with risk reasons – Exabeam analyzes different data sources and aggregates all user behavior across multiple accounts and devices. The information is stitched into a coherent session to detect abnormalities like lateral movement.

    Smart Timelines – Most products build a timeline that tracks a single dimension such as IP address, hostname, or username. While this could yield a timeline of events, this misses critical parts of the attack such as privilege escalation used to gain access to other computers. Exabeam’s Smart Timelines uses machine learning and AI models to gather all the evidence related to compromised insider threats like phishing emails, file share access, access to any critical assets, to quickly investigate, prosecute attackers and protect compromised insiders.


  • Data Exfiltration Use Case

    Detect Data Exfiltration with Smart Timelines

    Data exfiltration is the unauthorized transfer of data from within your organization to the outside.
    It’s also referred to as data theft. Hackers or malicious insiders gain access to targeted machines through remote applications or by installing a portable media device. Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are one form of cyber-attack in which data exfiltration is often a primary goal. They aggressively target companies with the goal of accessing or stealing sensitive corporate data.

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Behavioral-based approach to detect exfiltration – Exabeam tracks normal and abnormal user behaviors such as account switching, remote logins, database logins, and administrative asset logins to detect anomalous activity. Enriched by contextual data, all events are contained within a session. All risky behaviors within a session are assigned a risk score, with critical events being elevated to a higher score level.

    Integrate with DLP analytics tools – Many times organizations staff up and hire people to deal with the volume of events that are coming in, or they scope down their DLP rules to reduce false positives. Exabeam not only weeds out false positives, but also weeds out things that are business-justified, legitimate processes. Exabeam can identify those as low-risk and then surface the actual high-risk incidents that needs to be examined in further details. Exabeam is able to parse and analyze logs in real-time from various tools like endpoints, proxy, printer, cloud and emails, to detect data exfiltration.

    Real-time monitoring – Combined with a unique session data model that supports real-time risk scoring, Exabeam uses machine learning and AI models to gather all the evidence related to corporate data exfiltration like data upload, remote logins, database activities, cloud access, file share access, to quickly investigate and alert on anomalous data exfiltration.


  • Lateral Movement Use Case

    Effective Lateral Movement Detection with Smart Timelines and Contextual Enrichment

    Lateral movement is a method whereby attackers traverse a network using IP addresses, credentials, and machines in search of key assets and data.
    Such techniques are widely used in cyber-attacks to access hosts from a compromised system, then get access to sensitive data, shared files, and credentials. These can be leveraged further to access more resources, escalate privileges, or steal credentials that are even more valuable.

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Dynamic contextual enrichment – Exabeam enriches data with context so it’s able to distinguish between servers, users, service accounts, HR personnel, finance staff, and executives, et al. Exabeam also builds context by dynamically processing events and activities. This helps to easily track all user movement.

    Smart Timelines – Most products build a timeline that tracks a single dimension such as IP address, hostname, or username. While this could yield a timeline of events, this misses critical parts of the attack such as privilege escalation used to gain access to other computers. Exabeam Smart Timelines can stitch together all events that originated from a single user including privilege escalations making it easy to spot lateral movement.

    Improved signal-to-noise ratio and reduced false positives – Not all lateral movement is malicious. Staff shortages and alert deluge is a reality for most organizations. By tracking normal behavior for all systems, Exabeam can reduce the number of false alerts so staff can focus on real threats.


  • Ransomware Use Case

    Behavior-based Approach to Detect Advanced Threats

    Ransomware is a form of malicious software that permits miscreants to demand a ransom from their victims. Ransomware can significantly disrupt business operations by threatening data access and integrity. Because ransomware changes often and spreads quickly, many legacy detection techniques are ineffective, and result in temporary – and potentially permanent — data loss.

    One of the most common delivery systems is phishing spam—email attachments disguised as a file recipient should trust. Thus, victims are tricked into allowing administrative access and facilitating computer infection. Threat indicators include lateral movements, where hackers attempt to access multiple network servers and accounts with escalated privileges. Exabeam uses cutting-edge techniques to detect ransomware as it first enters the network and begins to spread throughout an organization’s IT infrastructure, including endpoints, networks, servers, and cloud services.

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Detect unknown ransomware through behavioural analytics – Exabeam creates baselines of normal behavior, then uses those baselines to evaluate new activity. Exabeam uses similar techniques and applies these to system processes to detect unusual file activity. Without using signatures or static correlation rules, the application learns the normal file access behaviors of every employee, as well as the normal activation and access patterns of system processes. When user accounts begin performing unusual or high-volume file operations, or when a new process executes for the first time and begins high-volume file activity, Exabeam flags this behavior as anomalous and potentially consistent with ransomware.

    Smart Timelines – Most products build a timeline that tracks a single dimension such as IP address, hostname, or username. While this could yield a timeline of events, this misses critical parts of the attack such as privilege escalation used to gain access to other computers or access to critical file shares. Exabeam Smart Timelines can stitch together all events that originated from a single user including privilege escalations making it easy to spot advanced threats.

    Real-time monitoring – Combined with a unique session data model that supports real-time risk scoring, Exabeam uses machine learning and AI models to gather all the evidence related to advanced threat detection like privilege escalation, critical file share access, database logins, data upload to detect advanced threats.


  • Cloud Security

    Organizations of all sizes are increasingly embracing cloud; both cloud infrastructure as well as cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform; Salesforce, Office 365 and Google Apps for Work. While transitioning to the cloud, offers organizations a myriad of benefits, it also adds adds it own set of challenges in terms of visibility, monitoring, and security. This typically manifests itself as logging blind spots—the inability to easily correlate on premise users and machines to their cloud activity, and a lack of security controls that may be required for compliance initiatives.

  • Securing Cloud Services and Monitoring Cloud Infrastructure Use Case

    Security Monitoring and Analytics for Cloud Infrastructure and Applications

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Prebuilt API connectors for popular applications – Exabeam Cloud Connectors include turnkey connectors for many popular cloud-based services—Office 365, Google Apps for Work, Salesforce and more. The connectors ensure that you can centralize all of your cloud activity data with the rest of your IT and security infrastructure.

    Unlimited logging at a predictable cost – With traditional SIEMs, adding new log sources—such as from your cloud services—can be costly due to their volume-based pricing models. To address that, Exabeam provides unlimited logging using a flat, user-based pricing model. This means you are not paying nothing extra for a user whether they are in the cloud, on prem or both. Logging your cloud activity data won’t break your security budget with Exabeam.

    Behavioral analysis-based threat detection – Exabeam’s threat detection is based on the world’s most-deployed user and identity behavior analytics (UEBA) solution. Combining cloud activity data with that from your on premise log sources, it creates baseline behaviors for all users and entities. Exabeam Smart Timelines stitches together all events from various sources and automatically identifies risky, anomalous activity that may point to threats.

    Prebuilt compliance reports – Important to many organizations is that, in moving to cloud-based services, doing so doesn’t cost them their compliance status. Exabeam includes out of the box compliance reports to ensure that cloud services are subject to the same compliance security controls as their on premise counterparts.


  • IoT Monitoring

    According to Gartner, over 8 billion IoT devices were in use in 2017. Many of these devices, like medical equipment, machinery, and power grid infrastructure, are vulnerable due to default credentials, un-updated or proprietary software, or lack of management. Exabeam provides the visibility and security analytics your team needs to monitor and protect your organization’s entire network and devices.

  • End-to-End Network Visibility Use Case

    Seamless Visibility for Every User, Device, and Network

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    End-to-End Network Visibility – Whether monitoring a LAN or assets from a power grid, SOCs view data from many security solutions that when viewed in isolation appear benign. Exabeam analyzes logs from various sources including VPN, cloud applications, email services, firewalls, Netflow, and other specific IoT sensors. Machine learning and behavioral modeling analyze the input from all these sources, detecting complex threats that would otherwise go undetected.

    Smart Timelines – Exabeam creates behavior-aware timelines, where events—with their risk reasons—are stitched together with contextual data. Using behavioral analysis, Exabeam Smart Timelines stitch together both, normal and abnormal user and device behaviors, lateral movements, abnormal file/data uploads to external assets, abnormal account switching and anomalous asset logins. This makes it easy for SOC analysts to pinpoint anomalies and quickly mitigate incidents, by seamless pivoting from user to assets.

    Increased efficiencies with automatic IP mapping – In most IT environments machines are dynamically assigned IP addresses by DHCP. If an incident occurs, security teams must match which assets correlate with the targeted addresses. This can be a tedious, manual process. Exabeam not only performs IP association on current addresses, but also all past DHCP IP addressing over time.


  • Machine-Based Threat Detection with Behavioral Analytics Use Case

    Close Security Gaps with Monitoring and Behavior Analytics

    Many advanced threats move laterally through a network, leveraging users and machines in their search for high value data. Connected assets like medical equipment, machinery, and power grid infrastructure are an easy target. Assets require the same monitoring as humans. Having detailed awareness and insight of network behavior can give control over the IT environment back to administrators

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Detect threats using behavioral modeling – Exabeam establishes a baseline of normal behavior for all assets in an organization — including communication patterns, ports and protocols used, and operating activity. It automatically identifies risky, anomalous device activity that may be indicative of a security incident or compromise.

    Prebuilt incident timelines automate manual investigation steps – Exabeam Smart Timelines automatically develops security incident timelines. And unlike competitive solutions, Exabeam tracks lateral movement without requiring manual steps. Exabeam Smart Timelines reveal in detail what happened during an incident. They identify behavioral context to determine if an activity was normal—thereby reducing SOC manual efforts as they gather evidence during an investigation.


  • SOC Automation

    Managing SOC operations is expensive – it involves organizing resources and prioritizing incidents, in addition to investigating and mitigating those that impact your business. Another pain point is lack of skilled analysts to triage and prioritize incidents. The time required to quickly resolve incidents affects your bottom line. Automating tasks plays an essential role by resolving SOC incidents faster and mitigating potential damages.

  • Incident Prioritization Use Case

    Triage and Mitigate Incidents Quicker

    One of SOC’s bigger tasks is to respond to the barrage of incoming security incidents, but it has limited resources and tools to effectively do so. Incidents require prioritization, so that SOC can focus on those incidents that are critical and have the biggest impact on your business.
    Exabeam offers guidance and helps organizations prioritize incoming security alerts.

    Key features and benefits with Exabeam:

    Dynamic contextual enrichment of data – Exabeam enriches data with context so it’s able to distinguish between servers, users, service accounts, HR personnel, finance staff, and executives, et al. And it builds context by dynamically processing events and activities. Context aids to track user activities while detection of anomalous behavior becomes much easier.

    Reduce analyst fatigue – Exabeam helps to prioritize incidents by ingesting event logs and security alerts, and then analyzing them alongside many other data sources to create behavioral baselines for all users and entities in the environment. Once normal behavior has been determined, Exabeam can quickly pinpoint deviations from that normal; the anomalous and risky behavior which is frequently indicative of a security incident. This holistic approach considers many more data points than the alerts themselves and can surface truly high-risk incidents to analysts’ attention. The support provided by Exabeam’s platform can help SOC teams amplify the power of their security analysts, giving them the capability to get through more alerts more quickly on a consistent basis.


  • Automated Response Use Case

    Empower Analysts to Effectively Respond to Alerts

    Responding to incidents involves fetching data, tracking and stitching all relevant events, communicating with resources to gather evidence, and ultimately resolving incidents. Automating these tasks decreases mean time to resolution (MTTR) and enables your already stretched security staff to do more in less time.

    Key benefits with Exabeam:

    Pre-built Smart Timelines for rapid investigations – Security teams responding to an incident can use hundreds of tools, resulting in an inefficient “swivel-chair” response. Exabeam uses prebuilt APIs to connect and integrate all systems, IT, and security tools for a rapid automatic response. Exabeam Smart Timelines makes it easy for investigators to pinpoint anomalous behavior since it shows both normal and abnormal behaviors with attached risk scores. Smart Timelines also help to automate investigations, gathering of evidence, containment, and mitigation.

    Decrease mean time to resolution (MTTR) – Investigators have full access to Smart Timelines, along with evidences from playbook runs. This makes it much easier for investigators to assess associated risks and greatly reduces mean-time-to-resolve incidents.Exabeam provides automated incident response via security orchestration and workflow automation that decrease MTTR. This provides huge advances in productivity for IR teams, yielding lower response times and less
    manual errors.
