Attackers use accounts to steal data and impact operations, without ever needing to run an exploit. Security-led AI sees and stops attacks abusing accounts before damage is done.
Using stolen accounts is a core attacker tactic. Attackers operate knowing that the complexities of managing account permissions across network, cloud and individual SaaS apps leave gaps for them to abuse which enable access and the ability to move laterally through a business.
Vectra’s AI monitors user activity across your network and cloud to find and stop attackers that steal and abuse accounts.
Monitor local and domain joined accounts, including domain admins, to find attackers moving laterally through your environment.
Detect attacker’s initial access to Azure AD, actions against the Azure AD backend and progression into M365 applications.
Vectra uses patented AI algorithms to learn the underlying privilege of an account and detect cases where attackers abuse that privilege. Detection events are correlated across your network and cloud to provide a clear view of an account compromise regardless of where an attacker is active.
“The administrative privilege detection feature is the most valuable feature. The admin accounts are often highly accessible to the high-risk component of the environment. If those accounts are compromised or are being used in a suspicious manner, those are high-fidelity events for us to look into.”
