Exabeam – Advanced Analytics

Product Overview

Exabeam empowers enterprises to detect, investigate and respond to cyberattacks more efficiently so their security operations and insider threat teams can work smarter. With Exabeam, analysts can collect unlimited log data, use behavioral analytics to detect attacks and automate incident response, both on-premises or in the cloud. Exabeam Smart Timelines further reduce the time and specialization required to detect attacker tactics, techniques and procedures.

Exabeam Advanced Analytics is the world’s most deployed behavioral analytics platform. Advanced Analytics automatically links and analyzes user and entity activity to better inform security analysts about threats and corresponding remediation. Advanced Analytics provides a powerful analytics layer on top of existing SIEM and log management technologies, detecting new attacks, prioritizing incidents, and guiding a more effective response. Exabeam Advanced Analytics combines a purpose built architecture with an investigation-focused user experience designed to fit the way security professionals actually work. This reduces the manual effort security analysts spend on investigations and increases their productivity.

Challenges Overcome Through Integration

By harnessing Recorded Future’s rich intelligence in Exabeam Advanced Analytics, teams can improve detection rates, resolve incidents faster, and make more confident decisions.

The combination of Exabeam and security intelligence from Recorded Future, uses behavior to bridge the gap between threat intelligence and the data generated by other security services to allow joint customers to more effectively detect, investigate, and respond to potential threats and gain context on internal events. By making threat intelligence directly available in Exabeam Advanced Analytics, correlation rules can be created based on specific security goals like phishing detection or detection of command and control servers in the environment.

Exabeam makes this data actionable for security teams by weaving it into existing SIEM detection and investigation workflows, thus enhancing analyst productivity. Analysts can further speed investigation and response using machine-built incident timelines and run playbooks that coordinate actions in 3rd party IT and security solutions to perform further investigation, containment, or mitigation of discovered threats.

Integration Description

As the attack surface grows, so does the abundance of security incidents, which places added stress on already overworked security professionals. Often correlation rules can’t find the attacks because they lack context or miss incidents they’ve never seen — generating false negatives. Correlation rules also require significant maintenance. Centralizing all of that external information, along with analyst notes and investigation outcomes, is imperative for avoiding duplicative work, inefficiency and missed opportunities to reduce risk.

Recorded Future for Exabeam Advanced Analytics solves this problem by sending high-fidelity threat lists, based on detection use cases, to Advanced Analytics to provide real-time actionable intelligence into potential threats in your environment by correlating against internal telemetry data.
