SecureAuth & Splunk
Discover security threats early with SIEM-powered insights
The ongoing fight with cyber criminals has forced security professionals to automate much of the cyber threat detection. However, this automation has not been an easy task – the attack surface spans remote workforce, cloud platforms like AWS or Azure, hundreds of SaaS apps, and often in-house built applications with a set of API endpoints.
To build an automated security alert system, IT security teams must first mesh and analyze multiple data sources to understand how each entity interacts with the rest of the ecosystem. A key component of this analysis is user identity and user behavior patterns which are critical in identifying emerging or persistent cyber risks within the organization’s distributed, multi-cloud IT ecosystem.
The Solution – SIEM and IAM integration
SecureAuth has partnered with Splunk to provide a detailed view into what cyber risks the organization may face.
The integration with Splunk allows SecureAuth IAM SaaS to bring identity security data and authentication events into the Splunk Cloud platform. From there the IT security team has immediate access to the SecureAuth Dashboard for Splunk. The Dashboard provides key insights into what authentication events are occurring, what apps are accessed, what authentication issues or unusual patterns are emerging.
Within Splunk the IT security team can set up queries to correlate attributes across multiple data sources with SecureAuth event logs being one of those data providers. Next, the security team will set up alerts when unusual behavior or new patterns start to emerge.
