Exabeam, a Smarter SIEM company, and Code42, a leader in insider risk detection and response, has announced a strategic partnership to help security and insider threat teams quickly detect, investigate and respond to data exfiltration and reduce risks caused by compromised, negligent or malicious insiders. Customers using the joint solution will benefit from having a full picture of their environment, even in distributed workforce conditions, with automated incident response to obstruct insider threats before data loss occurs.
Insider threats are now among the most serious security risks and are becoming increasingly difficult to manage using conventional security technologies. The huge shift to remote working in 2020 has increased the use of personal devices and at the same time, reduced the effectiveness of existing enterprise security solutions. When devices aren’t accessing assets directly through the corporate network or a VPN and instead going straight to the cloud, on-premises network data loss prevention (DLP) techniques and network firewalls have blind spots. Remote workers have also become the targets of social engineering attacks as cybercriminals attempt to exploit them to access corporate networks.
“The unprecedented growth in distributed work presents novel and complex insider threats – even when compared to just months ago,” said Grant McCormick, CIO, Exabeam.Click below to share this article
