This report details seven case studies of attacks that were intercepted and neutralized by cyber defense AI, including insider threat, ransomware, and IoT attacks.
While all threat scenarios were distinct, some fast-moving and others slow and stealthy, in all cases the subtle indicators of suspicious activity were only detectable using Darktrace AI, which learns what is normal for the business environment and autonomously responds to attacks – before damage is done.

As organizations increasingly rely on cloud services and SaaS applications to streamline business practices, the familiar paradigm of the network perimeter has dissolved, leaving a porous and ever-changing digital estate in its wake. While the benefits of cloud computing will ensure that migrations continue apace, the unique security challenges presented by the cloud will not only require a more agile mindset, but also self-learning technologies that can move at the speed of cloud deployments and spot subtle deviations indicative of a threat, while providing complete, real-time visibility across the digital business. Darktrace’s world leadership in the field of artificial intelligence for cyber security makes it the most effective and proven solution to detect unprecedented threats and anomalous cyber-incidents in the cloud. Whether faced with an insider threat, an attacker targeting sensitive data in test containers, or a significant misconfiguration that could be exploited in the fut
This flash point paper discusses advanced persistent threats, the risks they pose, and how automation makes real-time response a reality. It covers questions you should ask yourself and things to consider before making an investment.
Today’s enterprise is vastly different than five years ago: 75 percent of the workforce is mobile, 90 percent of companies support Mac devices, five malware attacks happen every second and half of enterprise data lives outside the data center. As everything around you changes, you’re expected to support the enterprise with flat budgets and static head counts. Endpoint backup enables you to protect enterprise data and mitigate the growing risk of data loss, ransomware and insider threat.
Explore a topic often overlooked during discussions about data security: the risk of insider threats. This report, "Stopping insider attacks: how organizations can protect their sensitive information," provides an overview of the issue of insider attacks and offers suggestions that may help organizations mitigate their risk. Plus, listen to a podcast about stopping insider threats.
Listen in as Andras Cser, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, speaks about trends he is seeing in the Identity & Access Management (IAM) market, and specifically about the challenges and benefits of user provisioning.
Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.
Security breaches are all over the news, many of them a result of either insider threats or advanced persistent threats.
Companies and government agencies are looking for solutions to mitigate the risks these threats present. This white paper details three common Windows Server threat scenarios and explains the way that they can be neutralized. By following the guidelines in this white paper, organizations can guard against inside and outside threats, protect their Windows Server infrastructure and sensitive data, and meet relevant regulatory requirements.
Centrify Server Suite provides organizations with the control they need to thwart these threats. It protects their Windows Server environments by:
• Granting users just enough privilege to accomplish their business objectives, enabling secure management of Windows services.
• Making shared accounts in Active Directory accountable by associating the use of a shared account with the actual user.
• Protecting PCI data from domain admin
The 2016 ACFE Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse analyzed 2,410 occupational fraud cases that caused a total loss of more than $6.3 billion.8 Victim organizations that lacked anti-fraud controls suffered double the amount of median losses.
SAS’ unique, hybrid approach to insider threat deterrence – which combines traditional detection methods and investigative methodologies with behavioral analysis – enables complete, continuous monitoring. As a result, government agencies and companies can take pre-emptive action before damaging incidents occur. Equally important, SAS solutions are powerful yet simple to use, reducing the need to hire a cadre of high-end data modelers and analytics specialists. Automation of data integration and analytics processing makes it easy to deploy into daily operations.
IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager helps organizations to securely manage and track the activities of privileged users, thereby reducing the risk of breaches, improving compliance and ensuring accountability. The IBM white paper explains how IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager provides enhanced security across various IT environments by centralizing and controlling the use of privileged identities.
Securing sensitive data presents a multi-dimensional challenge where complex environments—which often include a wide range of heterogeneous database management systems (DBMS), enterprise applications, big data platforms, file systems, OS platforms with multiple access paths and permission levels—have created a seemingly end-less array of security risks and violation scenarios.
This data security ebook examines the top 5 scenarios and essential best practices for defending against insider threats and external attacks.
Read this white paper to learn about how to get smart about insider threat prevention, including how to guard against privileged user breaches, stop data breaches before they take hold, and take advantage of global threat intelligence and third party collaboration.

Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.
Data security isn’t just about data security. It’s about job security. And marketing. And finance. And company valuation. Download the new eBook to see what questions you need to ask about your organization’s security measures, why they matter, and what else you need to know. Here’s what you need to ask your team:
1. Do you feel limited by budget or staff size?
2. How often do you see unsanctioned cloud services in use?
3. Are you protecting yourself against insider threats?
4. Do you have a cybersecurity task force in place?
5. Is your "bring your own device" policy secure?
Today’s businesses rely heavily on email to communicate with clients, partners, and colleagues. But research suggests that organizations are lacking when it comes to protecting themselves against the increasing number of customized and complex attacks.
When polled by Mimecast, 83% of IT security managers said they see email as a primary source of attack, yet 65% claim they aren’t fully equipped to resolve the risks associated with email threats. Respondents’ perceptions of primary security threats also appeared to change based on having experienced a successful
breach. However, viruses, malware, spam, and insider threats remain the top concerns for both groups, both with and without breach experience.

Insider threat is a growing issue that often exceeds expectations. While most organizations go to great lengths implementing background checks to vet employees; often the accidental insider and outsider turned insider (due to compromise), are overlooked. It is time for a new protect from within mentality.
The pace and sophistication of data breaches is growing all the time. Anyone with valuable secrets can be a target, and likely already is. According to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, at the time of this writing, 884,903,517 records were breached in 4,621 incidents documented since 2005.
