Recently, a Government organization from Healthcare industry in APAC region revealed that almost 14,000 health records were leaked online because of a malicious insider. The organization never thought that they could lose their sensitive health records to someone trustworthy (apparently) in unbelievably nasty way. Couple of months back this incident shook the cyber world and forced every global organization to reinforce security audit of their IT infrastructure, employee roles, their activities and access control mechanisms.
A robust User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) tool could have prevented this disaster and a face loss. This tool seamlessly monitors the user activities and detect anything suspicious happening in the network. With the help of a centralized policy framework, UBA helps organizations to automate the entire risk-assessment process and construct a comprehensive security framework for an enterprise.
Benefits of ARCON | UBA
According to United States Cyber Security magazine, almost 49% organizations are still concerned about malicious insiders who are considered to be more dangerous than any external hacker. Hence, organizations allocate handsome annual budget to deploy a robust information security mechanism to combat newer emerging threats. With the vastness of shared and distributed environment, ARCON | UBA allows organizations to identify and spot suspicious user behaviour by comparing with the configured baseline activities. This tool is efficient enough to crunch huge amounts of data and trigger alerts to the administrators once any suspicious activity is spotted. The lucid live dashboard acts as a reporting mechanism that helps administrators to control the IT operations, governance and compliance requirements.
There is a say “prevention is better than cure”. Since Forensic Investigations cannot always reach the root-cause of any breach incident, thus it is highly crucial to incorporate a robust threat detection mechanism to find out if any malicious activity is happening in the network periphery. In a shared and distributed environment, it is absolutely impractical to monitor hundreds or even thousands of end-users in a typical IT setup. Hence, organizations look for a robust security framework that would seamlessly monitor the user activities in real time.
In order to meet this need, administrators need a mechanism that would allow them to identify end-user behavior activities. Today, in the age of sophisticated cyber threats, it is extremely challenging to predict IT risks. With the help of User Behavior Analytics (UBA), the security team can monitor, record, and assess all end user behavior profiles to help them in crucial decision making.
- Governance: With this, UBA aligns IT security policies with operations ensuring compliance.
- Performance Matrix: It evaluates the reasons behind the gap of deliverables and user output as a result of any deviation from baseline activities.
- Security: In the form of an additional layer of risk and fraud detection tool, it ensures that security framework is not compromised.
- Identify Unauthorized Access: UBA tool analyzes and monitors privileged user activities and blocks suspicious ones to prevent probable data breach.
- Mitigate Fraud Risk: It isolates anomalous user activities in real time and prevents information security threat.
