Detect, Prioritize, and Respond to Threats Targeting Your Critical Systems Faster and More Effectively
Improving the cyber security of banks and credit unions continues to challenge many IT organizations. Regional banks and credit unions in particular often lack the resources to keep up with the increased sophistication of the threats targeting their networks.
These smaller financial services organizations don’t have the budget to hire dedicated security practitioners or invest in the diverse security controls needed to detect and respond to threats quickly.
They also lack the ability to respond quickly to changes in the regulatory environment, such as the FFIEC (Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council) Cyber Assessment Tool that measures cybersecurity preparedness.
The AlienVault USM platform enables bank and credit union IT teams with limited resources to improve their bank network security on day one.
In as little as one hour, you will be identifying the most important threats targeting your network and using integrated threat intelligence to help you respond quickly and effectively.
AlienVault USM™ delivers the banking cyber security you need in three key areas:
Cyber Threat Detection
- Five essential, built-in security capabilities all centrally managed
- Automatically detect new assets and vulnerable systems before attackers can target them
- Continuous monitoring of your network, users, and assets identifies suspicious and malicious activity quickly
- Correlates and analyzes security events from built-in data sources and legacy tools
- At-a-glance view of highest priority threats
- Focus on those critical assets to minimize the risk of system compromise and data exfiltration
Integrated Threat Intelligence
- Continuous updates to built-in security controls
- Pre-configured correlation directives eliminates the need to create your own
- Eliminates the need for dedicated security analysts to research threats
Cyber Threat Detection
AlienVault’s USM platform provides a unified approach to threat detection and compliance management that puts complete bank IT security visibility at your fingertips. The USM platform is an all-in-one security management platform that includes five essential security capabilities all centrally managed through a single interface:
- Asset Discovery
- Vulnerability Assessment
- Intrusion Detection
- Behavioral Monitoring
- SIEM (Security Information and Event Management)
These built-in capabilities enable you to quickly answer critical questions about your bank network security, such as what devices are on your network, which assets are vulnerable to attack, and which of these devices are communicating with known malicious IP addresses. AlienVault USM will automatically alert you when there is malicious activity in your network and when your users are violating policies.
Threat Prioritization to Focus
Scarce Resources and
AlienVault USM is the platform you need for complete visibility of your assets, vulnerabilities, and threats. We know the challenge bank IT cyber security teams face when trying to detect threats by manually collecting and correlating security events from individual security point-products. With those products generating hundreds or thousands of security events every minute, it’s almost impossible to find the few events that indicate system compromise.
AlienVault USM does the heavy lifting for you—it correlates and analyzes the events from its built-in data sources (as well as events from legacy systems) and identifies the most important threats. The Cyber Kill Chain Taxonomy provides an at-a-glance view of threat activity in your network and eliminates the need for you to investigate every alert. Armed with this information, your bank IT security team can focus on those critical assets to minimize the risk of system compromise and data exfiltration.
Respond Rapidly with Integrated Threat Intelligence
The AlienVault USM platform’s integrated threat intelligence eliminates the need for you to spend your scarce time researching alerts that your security tools generate or the latest changes in the threat landscape. The AlienVault Labs team conducts research on emerging threats for you, and delivers threat intelligence as a coordinated set of updates to the security controls built into the AlienVault USM platform, which accelerates and simplifies your threat detection and remediation efforts:
- Correlation directives
- IDS signatures
- Vulnerability audits
- Asset discovery signatures
- IP reputation
- Data source plugins
- Report templates
This data is augmented with additional community-generated threat intelligence from AlienVault Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX). OTX provides a global view of emerging threats and bad actors that are communicating with systems in your network. When combined with the AlienVault USM platform, the threat intelligence from AlienVault Labs and OTX eliminates the need for you to have a dedicated security analyst on your staff to research emerging threats and create correlation rules.
