Use Case Walkthrough:
Exabeam provides the leading Next-Gen SIEM and XDR. The reality of today is we are dealing with highly trained and committed adversaries. The headlines don’t lie, attacks are on the rise, and their one thing in common is use of valid user or entity credentials.
These hackers or insiders are hidden in plain sight, masquerading as legitimate users or devices. Signatures and Rules aren’t enough to detect these types of advanced attacks. Understanding the data, behavior and identity of our users and assets is a critical requirement for any SIEM or XDR.

Exabeam provides the leading Next-Gen SIEM and XDR.
Malicious insiders are one of the hardest threats to identify. Unlike external attacks, these insiders hide in plain sight and use valid credentials.
Legacy tools, that rely on signatures and rules, cannot defend against insiders. They can’t detect when user behavior drifts from normal. Behavioral analytics, and the context they deliver, combined with automation, are often your only defense.
