Bring yourself up to speed with our introductory content
The failure to detect insider threats and a growing need to store and sort through massive amounts of data have drawn attention to user behavior analytics, sometimes called user and entity behavior analytics. According to Gartner, UBA tools deliver value for use cases such as compromised accounts, including stolen and phished credentials. They can also be used to find compromised systems and data exfiltration.
Security platforms like data loss prevention, endpoint security and cloud access security brokers will increasingly layer or incorporate UBA features to help analyze alerts and make underlying technology more useful, according to analysts. SIEM and UBA are also converging, with SIEM vendors adding UBA tools and UBA vendors building SIEM systems.
In this issue of Information Security magazine, we look at the dynamics around UBA and strategies for CISOs going forward. UBA vendors are releasing product suites targeted at security operations centers, today built around SIEM. What does the future hold for standalone UBA tools? We look at time to value and use cases, and help you sift through the noise.Continue Reading

Most cloud access security brokers offer CISOs a way to set policy and gain better understanding of multiple cloud services and data in use across the enterprise. As CASBs have gained momentum in recent years, use cases for them have expanded. Do these tools fill the gaps around visibility and control of software as a service and other cloud services?
Although cloud service visibility and data leak protection continue to be the biggest drivers, cloud access security brokers can do more than just help with your shadow IT problem and unsanctioned application activity in the cloud.
Organizations are increasingly looking to use cloud access security brokers to identify anomalies in data movement between on-premises and cloud apps as well as multiple cloud services. Malware identification and encryption of data have become important. More enterprises are also beginning to use CASBs or similar intermediary security technologies to provide some level of security policy management for custom identity-as-a-service platforms.
In this issue of Information Security magazine, we look at cloud access security brokers and the best ways to evaluate new models, such as infrastructure as a service and platform security.Continue Reading
