Securonix + PTC Windchill

PTC Windchill, a product lifecycle management platform, offers role-based access and auditing but lacks functionality around threat detection. Securonix helps protect your organization’s IP by monitoring Windchill activities and applying advanced machine learning and analytics to alert you of anomalous behaviors.

Securonix for PTC Windchill Monitoring Use Cases

  • Prevent Intellectual Property Theft

    Monitor for IP theft and get alerted to inappropriate sharing and downloading of large amounts of data.

  • Monitor User Access to Critical Data

    Securonix analyzes access permissions, and compares against peer baselines to determine if users have an appropriate level of access.

  • Ensure Continuous Operations

    Detect multi-stage attacks that span across your IT environment before they lead to shutdowns with out-of-the-box threat chain analytics.

Uncover Malicious Activity With Advanced Labeling

Securonix for PTC Windchill Monitoring allows you to easily access and categorize IP such as assemblies, parts, or designs and classify documents based on sensitivity. Labeling adds the necessary context needed to uncover behaviors that are indicative of compromise, including:

  • Data exfiltration via data export and data downloads
  • Suspicious sharing of data with high-risk security labels
  • Suspicious changes to security labels
  • Suspicious copy, delete and rename events
  • Excessive and outlier permissions compared to peers

Gain Insight With Identity Context

Securonix’s solution enriches events from Windchill with identity context. Attributing activities to a single user makes it easier to monitor for specific threat patterns such as:

  • User Type Context: An offsite contractor downloads large amounts of data.
  • User Department Context: A user accesses confidential design documents that aren’t used by their peers.
  • User Location Context: A user logs in at odd hours from an usual geolocation.
  • User Termination Context: A user about to leave the company saves and exports large amounts of data.

Correlate Violations With Threat Chain Analytics

Our solution reduces noise and helps you detect threats by combining multiple indicators across different data sources. Here’s an example of a threat chain built by Securonix:

  • First, proxy data shows that a user is searching for jobs, indicating they may be a flight risk.
  • Next, Windchill data indicates that this user is accessing an abnormal volume of confidential data.
  • Lastly, email gateway data shows that this user sent emails with confidential data to their personal email account.

When combined, these actions indicate with high confidence an existing threat to your organization.

"We have partnered with Securonix for many years. From an early on-prem deployment, as one of the first cloud customers, and finally on to steady state cloud usage.

"Overall experience is very favorable! I like the fact that we can modify our own dashboard applicable to our company."
