Monitoring the Keys to the Kingdom
CHALLENGE: Protecting the Keys to the Kingdom
High privileged users, service and shared accounts are the primary targets and tools for insider and external attackers. Their elevated permissions allow them access to the most sensitive transactions, data, and the ability to create new privileged accounts or elevate privileges for misuse. Organizations face enormous challenges in monitoring these accounts due to the sheer numbers, volume of activity data they generate, and their inability to differentiate misuse from legitimate use. Effectively monitoring privileged accounts is not just an important compliance requirement but also a critical threat management capability.
SOLUTION: Real-time threat and risk monitoring
Securonix automatically identifies privileged users, service and shared accounts and then monitors them for abnormal usage associated with insider and external attacks along with key compliance requirements. All abnormal account activity or policy violations can be investigated using Securonix or integrated into the leading Privileged Account Management (PAM) solutions. Securonix also takes activity and event information directly from PAM solutions and enriches the data with identity context, analyzes for abnormal behavior, and re-prioritizes based on their relative risk level. This out-of-the-box solution delivers:
- Automated discovery of privileged service, shared, and human accounts through advanced correlation
- Rapid detection of abnormal high privilege account and user behavior
- High risk activity and access detection using peer group analysis
