Exabeam for State and Local Governments


Detect and Respond to Public Sector Threats

State and local governments are increasingly collecting and managing sensitive data on behalf of their citizens. Bad actors can target records containing personally identifiable information (PII) a number of sources such as public health systems, law enforcement, the department of motor vehicles (DMV) and more. Exabeam’s Security Management Platform helps organizations secure this information from common attacks like ransomware and insider threats.


Stop Ransomware in its Tracks

Ransomware attacks are increasingly targeting state and local governments like Baltimore, New Orleans and others to take critical systems and citizen data hostage. Without sufficient tools, budget or staff, public sector security teams may not be able to stop an attack before it’s too late. The Exabeam Security Management Platform allows public sector organizations to rapidly detect and respond to known and never-before-seen ransomware attacks before hackers are able to demand payment.

With Exabeam, security teams can:

  • Use behavioral analysis to identify malware performing ransomware activity
  • Automatically perform rapid investigation and document ransomware scope with machine-built Smart Timelines
  • Coordinate security tools needed to move quickly enough to disrupt the ransomware killchain


Defend Against Insider Threats

State and local governments should not only protect their organizations from external attackers, but also insider threats. With recent leaks from the likes of Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, public sector agencies need to ensure they understand not only what data they are storing, but also who, what, where and when it is accessed. Exabeam’s user-centered view of security information and events is designed to help identify individuals with risky patterns of behavior who may attempt to exfiltrate sensitive data.

With Exabeam, security teams can:

  • Gain enhanced visibility into threats that span siloed security tools
  • Use watchlists to continuously monitor privileged access to crown jewels to enable a proactive approach to insider threats
  • Leverage behavior analytics to Identify insider threats employing difficult to detect techniques, such as compromised credentials
  • Drastically reduce time spent investigating insider threats and mean time to respond with machine-built incident timelines and security orchestration and automation response (SOAR)
