Extends QRadar platform’s advanced analytics to protect against compromised credentials and malicious insiders
ARMONK, NY – 27 Jul 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security today announced a new app for IBM QRadar which analyzes the usage patterns of insiders, including employees, contractors and partners, to determine if their credentials or systems have been compromised by cybercriminals. IBM QRadar User Behavior Analytics, available for free via the IBM Security App Exchange, extends IBM QRadar’s security intelligence platform to provide early visibility into potential insider threats before they can do further damage to a business.
Insider threats are currently responsible for 60 percent of attacks facing businesses, but roughly a quarter of these attacks are the result of users’ credentials falling into the hands of hackers via employees, contractors or partners who are tricked by malware-laden phishing attacks or other techniques . For example, the new user behavior analytics app would alert analysts to a user logging into a high value server for the first time, from a new location, while using a privileged account. This change in pattern would be identified because the IBM QRadar User Behavior Analytics solution created a baseline of normal user behavior for this employee and detected a significant deviation.
“Organizations need a better way to protect themselves against insider threats – whether they be from inadvertent actors or malicious cybercriminals with access to an organization’s inner workings and technology systems,” said Jason Corbin, Vice President of Strategy and Offering Management, IBM Security. “This new app provides analysts with the ability to quickly pivot by using existing cybersecurity data to see the early warning signs that are often buried in suspicious user activities, ultimately helping them more consistently address breaches before they occur.”
IBM QRadar User Behavior Analytics leverages data from customers’ existing QRadar investment giving them a single platform to analyze and manage security events and data. This integration saves security analysts from having to reload and curate data from multiple platforms to identify and investigate user behavior side-by-side with other indicators of compromise QRadar detects.
The solution helps security professionals guard against malicious threats through:
With the recent acquisition of Resilient Systems, IBM has added the capability to easily respond to incidents elevated in the QRadar platform via the new User Behavior Analytics app. Available for free download on the IBM Security App Exchange, the QRadar User Behavior Analytics application is part of IBM’s open approach to developing security tools that can be leveraged in the fight against cybercrime.
Over the past two years, IBM has made significant moves to help security professionals worldwide collaborate to achieve an advantage over cybercriminals, including opening its 700 TB of threat data to the public with the launch of IBM X-Force Exchange. Built on X-Force Exchange intelligence, the IBM Security App Exchange has developed into an expansive online marketplace for partners and customers to share and download apps based on IBM Security technologies, such as IBM QRadar. The marketplace features dozens of 3rd party solutions to further clients’ ability to customize their security environment using IBM’s open platform approach.
