Exabeam Launches Threat Hunter Solution to Battle Cyber Attacks
While there are a number of different approaches that companies are taking in order to root out cyber criminals in the corporate world, Exabeam is one company that believes it has truly found the answer. Already considered one of the world’s leaders in Behavior Analytics for security, the company announced recently that it was launching a new solution known as Threat Hunter.
This new solution is a product that is geared toward instant and targeted identification of security big data by anyone. This particular program will allow for security professionals using the solution to more quickly and accurately identify and respond to hackers and other kinds of cyber criminals that are active in a company’s network.
"The promise of User Behavior Analytics is that the system will notify security analysts about risky activities, and Exabeam excelled at that in ESG Lab testing," said Tony Palmer, senior lab analyst, for the industry expert Enterprise Strategy Group (News - Alert) in a recent release. "Exabeam's Threat Hunter provides the other half of the equation -- the ability to ask the system which users match a specific set of risk criteria and get useful answers.”
While there are quite a few cyber attacks on companies, those attacks are likely more serious than getting credit card numbers. Cyber criminals are now looking to break into corporate networks in order to get high value data. The same is true when looking at governments as they attempt to take down people who are trying to break into even more secure networks than the average corporation.
Exabeam can’t take on the government attacks but it can help larger corporations keep themselves safer, longer. The major features of the Threat Hunter solution are the ability to find advanced, persistent threats before they actually cause data loss, find hackers that are actually hiding in the network, and allow for quicker responses to attacks by looking up all traces of illegal activity. These three features combine to form a rather solid wall against attackers for big and small companies. Threat Hunter is available now and is priced based on users through a licensed subscription.
