Securonix Application Security

The Need for Application Security

Enterprise applications are the primary repository of your organization’s critical assets and processes. As such, they are a target for insider threats and external attacks. Most organizations have limited to no threat monitoring of these applications and rely primarily on access controls and network security solutions that are ineffective against an insider threat or a targeted attack. Business-critical applications also increasingly live in the cloud. While this allows for extreme flexibility, it also increases your exposure to security vulnerabilities.

Organizations like yours need real-time, continuous monitoring in order to provide the visibility you need into threats that target your enterprise applications.

Benefit from Cloud to Cloud Security

Securonix Application Security: Built for the Cloud and Hybrid Cloud World

The Securonix platform is purpose-built to address the application security challenges faced by enterprises. It has built-in integrations for major public cloud vendors (AWS and Microsoft Azure) for application and resource monitoring, along with both industry specific and domain specific SaaS application integration.

Key Benefits

Cloud-based with multi-tenancy, AWS Security Competency Certified, and built for the cloud.

Continuous control and compliance monitoring.

Automated rapid detection of high-risk activity through behavior analysis.

Detect and monitor high-risk access and activity.

Continuous detection and monitoring of critical information for data loss prevention.

Enriches data with identity, behavior, and business context for security and compliance management.

Proactive detection and management of fraud, misuse, snooping, and other illicit activity.

Multi-application integration, for both public cloud platforms and SaaS enterprise applications.

Focus on Action and Usage

Application state monitoring can sometimes be deceiving, as insider attack attempts can often be interpreted as legitimate application requests. Securonix focuses on application usage, looking at users, activities, and access instead of user application entitlement and current state. By focusing on usage patterns and behavioral changes Securonix can reliably detect unauthorized credential usage and malicious attack attempts.

Flexible Multi-Tenant Architecture With AWS Certification

Behavior-Driven, Deep Application and User Security Focus

Securonix addresses the need for application security by monitoring critical applications and systems at the transaction, data set, and sensitive user record level. Securonix continuously builds a risk profile for all applications and systems while identifying all high-risk users, access, and activities associated with sensitive data and transactions. All results are scored and presented in application and user risk scorecards.

Platform Capabilities

Real-time visibility with continuous monitoring and artificial intelligence-driven analytics.

Real-time event monitoring and complete visibility. Review threats, identify all relevant data with event enrichment, and take action with built-in security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) capabilities.

Multi-stage threat chain methodology looks beyond alerts, linking events across applications, users, host machines, devices, and IP addresses using intelligent analytics to identify viable, clear threats. All threats are scored with a policy-based risk scoring capability.

High Privilege Account Monitoring and User Risk Profiling

High Privilege Account Monitoring and User Risk Profiling

High privilege accounts (HPA) are a primary source of insider misuse. Securonix automatically identifies HPAs such as administrator, service, and shared accounts. It then monitors these HPAs for abnormal behavior associated with an attack, linking the high-risk behavior back to a real user and giving the potential threat full context. Also, Securonix continuously builds a comprehensive risk profile of users based on identity/employment, security violations, IT activity and access, physical access, and even phone records. All identity, activity, and access characteristics are compared to their baseline, their peers, and known threat indicators in order to identify areas of risk.

For example, insider fraud is typically conducted over a long period of time or through complex activity designed to get around known, signature-based detection methods. Securonix addresses this using advanced signatureless behavior and peer-based outlier analysis techniques that are highly effective at identifying complex ‘slow and low’ fraud attacks.
