Spotting risky behaviors and configurations in critical infrastructure components is essential to stop network intrusions and preempt cyberattacks. Account compromises and misconfiguration exploits are common techniques used to breach networks. When you assess, monitor, and reduce the risks of your Active Directory infrastructure, it gives you an edge over attackers, helping prevent attacks from happening.
ManageEngine Log360's security risk and posture management, helps you with the risk assessment and management of Active Directory. The solution comes with pre-built security best practices (recommendations from Microsoft) and checks if your Active Directory meets those practices, offers insights into the impacts of the risks, and gives recommendations on how to mitigate the risk. The solution also provides the overall risk score of your Active Directory platform. This feature also helps with compliance audits as most regulatory mandates require enterprises to have a proper risk assessment and management system to prevent data breaches.
Keep a close eye on your security posture on a granular level with Log360's security and risk posture management. You will be provided with an AD security score—a percentage value that highlights where you stand when it comes to your overall security posture. The rules contributing to your AD security score are categorized into: low or no risk, medium risk, and high risk, giving you a comprehensive picture of the different areas that require your attention. Log360 doesn't stop with identifying security loopholes; it also provides recommendations on how to fix them. With extensive knowledge on areas that require your attention, you can take the necessary security measures to address potential vulnerabilities and improve your organization's security posture.
The security and risk posture management dashboard comes with preconfigured rules for AD security based on AD security guidelines from Microsoft, ManageEngine Log360 and CIS Security Standards. You can customize these rules according to your organization's requirements, which will ultimately become the baseline for your AD security score assessment. Additionally, you can configure email notifications to be sent on a custom schedule to help keep you informed about your security posture.
and risk posture management dashboard, you can:
Stay on top of security-related issues in your AD environment with Log360's automated and proactive monitoring capabilities. Keep track of all security-related activities occurring in Active Directory (AD) by monitoring changes in security group membership, unauthorized login attempts, account lockouts, OU permission modifications, and much more using exhaustive, predefined audit reports.
With Log360's real-time event correlation engine, you can easily detect attack patterns by correlating AD log data collected from domain controllers and DNS servers. Log360 also comes with over 30 predefined correlation rules that help you detect common cyber attacks such as Brute-force attacks, SQL injection attacks, and possible ransomware activities. You can customize these rules or create new ones using the built-in correlation rule builder to gain insights into different types of attacks.
Powered by machine learning algorithms, Log360's UEBA module can detect anomalous activities in your organization's network by creating a baseline of normal behavior and analyzing logs from various sources for deviations. Log360 detects threats such as insider attacks,data exfiltration, and account compromise by assigning risk scores to each user and entity based on its deviation from the baseline.
Log360 provides preconfigured threat alerts that prevent threat actors from exploiting vulnerabilities in your network. With these alerts, enterprises can stop communication from a malicious source, and automatically set a workflow trigger to block-list IP addresses and block them permanently. Log360 provides improved visibility into your network with its enhanced real-time event response system providing contextual information, such as the reputation score of an IP and its geolocation.
Log360 assigns risk scores to different categories of threats, including insider threats, data exfiltration, compromised accounts, logon anomalies, and overall anomalies, based on the severity of the threat. When there is a deviation from the expected activity baseline, the associated risk score increases. You can address the most critical security issues first, leveraging contextual risk scoring to measure risks dynamically. By customizing risk scores for different categories, Log360 enhances your security posture and minimizes the chance of a data breach.
