Transforming Logs and Alerts into Actionable Intelligence with UEBA Functionality
For information security practitioners, the stored value in security data can reduce both costs and risk. The progression of the treatment of log data is a testament to the recognition of this value. Computer logging facilities began as a first-in-first-out (FIFO) rolling buffer with a finite capacity. Organizations then moved to log management programs where log data was aggregated and stored. Next, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems were put in place. Today, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) solutions are at the forefront of unlocking the value of data and a growing number of companies are turning to UEBA to help solve their security challenges.
These solutions provide advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities that enable you to automate the detection of advanced threats. Based on my field experience at Optiv, you should consider adding UEBA to your enterprise security arsenal and here’s why:
When it comes to selection of a UEBA product, it’s important to assess your current environment to determine which technology will best achieve your desired results as well as integrate with your existing security technology. Over the past few years, LogRhythm has made a number of product enhancements to address user-based threats through UEBA to meet many of the above requirements. It is delivering these capabilities through the extension of its existing real-time analytics platform and the introduction of a new cloud-based analytics service.
If considering a UEBA solution, it will be most successful if organizations already have robust logging, log management and log retention in place for their critical business assets. Organizations should ensure the UEBA solution integrates with their existing SIEM and ticketing system. A team should be in place or constructed to manage the solution and respond to actionable alerts. Successful UEBA implementations will show risk and cost reduction. Security issues will be uncovered sooner and security violations will have less of an impact on the business. Hours and resources associated with log analysis and incident response time will decrease. The good news… you can achieve these results with a review of your security operations strategy and maturity, product implementation and integration services for your SIEM and UEBA technologies and if required, managed security services.
