Exabeam integrates Duo Security authentication and device log technology
Unified Access Security (UAS) company Duo Security and security information and event management (SIEM) provider Exabeam have partnered to combine Duo’s authentication and device logs with the Exabeam Security Management Platform. The integration provides high accuracy alerts to free up time and resources for security teams by reducing detection time and orchestrating automated responses, according to the announcement.
Organizations can use the integrated technology to track user behavior and initiate automated responses to credential-based threats, such as two-factor identity verification requests, with Duo’s zero-trust platform and Exabeam’s Smart Timelines.
“Zero-trust security is not only about identity authentication at the initial login, but also maintaining trust throughout the user session with continuous monitoring and verification,” said Ash Devata, Duo Security Head of Product. “Once trust is broken, it’s critical to have the ability to respond quickly. Our integrated solution with Exabeam is about enabling every security team, regardless of size, to access these capabilities, furthering our mission to democratize security.”
The companies note that the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report shows compromised credentials are the top cause of data breaches, while Cisco’s 2018 Annual Security Report shows a four-fold increase in total security events over the last two years.
“The deluge of alerts one organization can get in a day can overwhelm even the most seasoned and well-resourced security team,” said Ted Plumis, VP of Worldwide Channels at Exabeam. “Our integration with Duo enables us to deliver a streamlined, orchestrated security solution for customers who need to identify suspicious activity to quickly remediate threats in their environment.”
Duo was recently acquired by Cisco for $2.35 billion, while Cisco Investments is an Exabeam backer.
Exabeam also recently integrated SecureAuth + Core Security’s adaptive authentication technology with its Security Management Platform.
