AlienVault USM Delivers User Activity Monitoring to Assist
with the Detection of Suspicious or Malicious Activity

User activity monitoring should be an important aspect of your overall network security approach. This is because high profile breaches are occurring with increasing frequency, often with attackers leveraging stolen credentials to gain corporate access. Many other high profile breaches involve company insiders who have access to sensitive data or inappropriately escalate privileges to access systems and data in a malicious or suspicious manner.

User activity monitoring solutions deliver comprehensive tracking of user actions to identify anomalous behavior and help uncover potential system compromise and abuse. These solutions are critical to round out your organization’s network defenses and improve your compliance capabilities.

You need a security solution that:

  • Monitors user activity and alerts on anomalous activity
  • Uncovers system misuse
  • Ensures audit trails for compliance
  • Integrates with other security tools

User Activity Monitoring
for Threat Detection

Organizations are increasingly concerned about breaches involving company insiders who have access to sensitive corporate data or inappropriately escalate privileges to access systems in a suspicious manner. Organizations also need to defend against breaches from malicious attackers leveraging stolen credentials to gain access and steal sensitive data.

User activity monitoring solutions deliver comprehensive tracking of user actions and can alert you to suspicious activity in your network. These user monitoring solutions are critical for effective threat detection and compliance. But adding one more security solution into your security program can seem daunting, especially for under-resourced teams.

AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) delivers critical user activity monitoring functionality as part of its comprehensive threat detection platform. USM delivers five essential security capabilities in one platform, giving you everything you need to detect threats, prioritize response, and manage compliance. And with built-in Threat Intelligence delivered by the AlienVault Labs team, USM enables you to detect the latest threats, with AlienVault Labs acting as an extension of your IT team.

Comprehensive Compliance Capabilities

User activity monitoring is a component of many compliance requirements and industry best practices, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GLBA. To meet these regulatory requirements, you need to be able to track user activity, maintain the logs, and record the activity for audit trail purposes.

AlienVault USM delivers all of the essential security capabilities in a single platform to help you achieve compliance. AlienVault’s Host Intrusion Detection gives you the visibility you need into the user activity through built-in file integrity monitoring, registry monitoring, root kit detection, service monitoring, and log collection on critical systems to detect malicious activity and demonstrate adherence to relevant compliance requirements.

USM also offers hundreds of built-in compliance reports for managing your HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, or other programs. These reports are automatically updated as asset and vulnerability assessment data changes, and you can quickly customize them based on your own compliance priorities.

Integrated Threat Intelligence

Threat intelligence is an essential component to any effective security program. And very often, it is too resource intensive and too costly for organizations to invest in effective threat intelligence. That’s where the threat intelligence produced by AlienVault Labs and the Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX™) steps in. AlienVault Threat Intelligence is information about malicious actors, their tools, infrastructure and methods. The AlienVault Labs team is constantly performing advanced research on current threats and developing updates to AlienVault USM’s Threat Intelligence. The Labs team incorporates this expertise into the extensive library of customizable correlation rules that are included with the AlienVault USM platform.

AlienVault eliminates the need for you to conduct your own research and to write your own correlation rules. The constant updates from AlienVault Labs enable the USM platform to analyze the mountain of event data from all of your data sources and tell you exactly what are the most important threats facing your environment right now, and what you need to do about them.
