How much of your classified data can an attacker collect in 200 days?
200+ days. Thatâs the average amount of time it takes to detect an attacker residing inside your network while they gather classified data and information. Cybersecurity is no longer just an issue for IT departments. Now even the highest level executives need to worry about whatâs at stake during an attack â customer privacy, brand identity, employee and company reputations are just a few.
- 200 days: the average time attackers stay in a network prior to detection
- $500 billion: the estimated cost of cybercrime to the global economy
- >75%: the percentage of all network intrusions that are traced back to compromised credentials
- $3.5 billion: the average cost of a data breach to a company
The Importance of a Strong Defense System
A strong defense system prevents identities and bank accounts from being hacked. It keeps trade secrets and intellectual property safe. A strong defense system can even become a competitive edge and maintain standing in the stock market. As BYOD becomes the norm for organizations across the world, a system that allows you to identify and handle breaches and threats sooner than 200 days is critical.
Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics
Microsoftâs Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) uses machine learning and behavioral analytics to uncover suspicious activity and abnormal behavior in your network, detects malicious attacks almost instantly and sends alerts for known security issues and risks based on expert security researchersâ work.
How ATA Works
All Active Directory traffic is analyzed using ATAâs deep pack inspection technology. It can also collect relevant events from SIEM (security information and event management software) and other sources.
ATAâs self-learning technology allows it to detect and profile behaviors of users, devices and resources to build an Organizational Security Graph. This graph is a map of entity interactions that represents the context and activities of the users, devices and resources it learned and profiled.
Once the Organizational Security Graph is in place, ATA will start searching for behavioral anomalies and detect any red flags while leveraging security research to detect known attacks and security issues.
Suspicious activities, known security issues and malicious attacks are detected in near real-time. When a threat is detected, ATA sends an alert containing clear, functional, actionable information on a simple attack timeline.
What Makes ATA Great
Itâs fast. You donât have to create rules and policies, deploy agents or monitor a zillion reports. The proprietary algorithm works around the clock to pinpoint suspicious activity in your system. It profiles your users, devices and resources and detects threats in near real-time.
Itâs flexible. Once installed, ATA continuously analyzes and learns entity behavior, adjusting itself to reflect your enterpriseâs rapid changes. And because ATA is continuously self-learning, it adapts to the changing nature and sophistication of cybersecurity attacks so youâre always one step ahead of your enemies.
Itâs simple. Alerts are displayed on an attack timeline that includes clear, actionable information. You donât have to sift through the constant reports sent by traditional security tools that make identifying relevant alerts needing action a daunting task. Instead, the attack timeline is a clear, efficient and convenient feed that gives you the power of perspective. See who, what, when and how. Use its recommendations to investigate and remediate suspicious activity.
Itâs reliable. ATA reduces false positive fatigue and only raises a red flag when suspicious activities are contextually aggregated to its own behavior as well as to the other entities in its interaction path. That means you wonât be distracted from real threats by unnecessary red flags. ATAâs detection engine will automatically guide you through the process, asking you simple questions to adjust the detection process according to your input.
Secure the Future of Your Enterprise
Cybersecurity is an issue that affects everyone. From high level execs to IT teams to consumers, a security breach could have crippling and costly implications for us all. A lot of information can be stolen in 200 days. Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics detects threats and offers actionable information in near real-time. Can you afford to use anything else?
