Provided Support Outside of Working Hours
The firm is often asked to help with nation-state exploitation and long-term investigations into cybercriminal exploitation activity and with such tasks comes big responsibility. The firm searched to find a managed detection and response + security services platform that could handle a rapid response to an extended enterprise network with thousands of systems, defend its global environment, and prevent potentially ongoing data breaches during the investigation.
The firm also needed a solution that included User & Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), allowing each artifact discovery to become more intuitive. The firm was most interested in rapidly deploying a solution to help understand user and account activity in a contested environment. The old-school-traditional way of pulling logs and analyzing account activity was not quick or efficient enough for an incident response use case. The firm needed a platform that would provide intuitive and efficient visibility into user and account behavior in environments where unauthorized activity was suspected.
Adlumin is An Extended Part of Your Security Team
The firm and Adlumin’s journey together is now spanning over three years. The firm explored and evaluated the platform’s main features and beneficial capabilities, leading them to go to Adlumin when user/account behavior visibility was needed. Adlumin’s platform core features like UEBA and Integrated Threat Intelligence gave cyber investigators rapid visibility into enterprise network intrusion activity that they were investigating for their clients.
Adlumin’s One-Touch Compliance Reporting tools often serve as a pivotal differentiator, allowing analysts to customize reports and detection alerts for potential threats, breaches, or other anomalous activities on their network.
Adlumin’s MDR, UEBA, Integrated Threat Intelligence, SOC (MDR++ service) platform also automates processes that investigators would have previously done manually (e.g., securing and understanding access/event logs across large numbers of accounts). The most valuable use case is when investigators encounter an extensive active directory user footprint. Adlumin’s platform is a quick way to understand account, application, and activity risk.
Next Steps: Illuminate threats. Eliminate Risk. Command Authority
The Adlumin MDR++ services platform deployed in minutes and analytics began working and analyzing data immediately. This provided the firm with complete security and analytics coverage for their breached client’s extensive enterprise network.
Adlumin’s response to network exploitation events allowed the firm to deploy instant monitoring, detection, and visualization tools. This helped them serve clients more efficiently while ensuring advanced actors and persistence mechanisms were identified and contained.
The platform’s UEBA data science also helped determine normal account and system behavior patterns. It then looked for all anomalies of that norm. Lastly, Adlumin’s 24×7 Security Operations Center (SOC) supported the firm’s team during their investigations.
