Detection and mitigation of lateral movement attacks using Log360

Swiftly detect lateral movements

Often, detecting lateral movements is arduous because lateral movement events may look legitimate. This section lists out some of the most common yet impactful lateral movement techniques and how Log360 can detect and remediate them.

  • Privilege escalation

    Log360 provides a complete picture of all privileged user sessions in the form of an intuitive security analytics dashboard so as to quickly spot privilege escalations. The solution helps you to accurately spot indicators of lateral movements such as process injection, access token manipulation, hijack execution flow, and more. The solution also helps monitor unauthorized logon and access attempts and tracks all user activity in real time.

  • Pass-the-hash attack

    Pass-the-hash attack is one of the most commonly used lateral movement techniques. Detecting pass-the-hash attacks is difficult, but Log360 uses log analysis and Sysmon analysis to accurately spot successful authentications that happen without passwords. The solution also provides insights such as logon type, remote device from which the pass-the-hash attack happened, and more critical differentiators of this technique.

  • Proactive threat detection

    Spotting a unusual resource access is very difficult if you're only using a rule-based threat detection system. You'll require an AL/ML-based threat detection system to spot lateral movement tactics from legitimate events. Log360 combines both a signature-based threat detection framework that depends on the MITRE ATT&CK® threat model and a machine-learning based anomaly module to detect various lateral movement techniques. Combining the two threat detection frameworks makes Log360 a reliable and accurate tool to detect lateral movement techniques.

  • Exploitation of remote services

    Adversaries will try to exploit the remote services or facilitators such as RDP to cause an impactful attack. Since most endpoints support a remote connection, exploiting these remote services will drastically increase the attack surface, allowing intruders to move swiftly across different resources undetected. Log360 captures and alerts you in real time about indicators that could cause potential remote services exploitation. The solution can alert you to potential RDP exploits, RDP logins from local hosts, denied access to remote desktops, and more to help you instantly spot lateral movements.

Preempt lateral movement attack

Log360's powerful machine-learning based user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) module and signature-based attack detection system helps you to quickly hunt lateral movement techniques.

  • Machine learning-based anomaly detection

    Log360's user entity and behavior analytics (UEBA) employs AI and ML algorithms to identify abnormal patterns in the user and entity behaviors and correspondingly increase the user or system's risk score. The integrated risk management system of this module helps detect slow and sophisticated threats that often go undetected. Spot red flags such as a user accessing a resource or remote desktop for the first time, suspicious permission changes, a remote login from an unusual location or time, and more. These are some of the subtle events that are starting points for lateral movement attacks.

  • Automated incident response workflows

    To effectively contain and mitigate lateral movement techniques, Log360 offers you real-time and automated workflow executions. You can associate alerts or correlation rules specific to lateral movement detection with a workflow profile. The solution automatically triggers an alert to help you instantly remediate the threat condition. Further, the solution comes with a case management system to effectively manage security incidents.

  • MITRE ATT&CK® framework

    Log360's MITRE ATT&CK framework helps detect the various techniques adversaries use to penetrate into the network and move laterally, escalating privileges to evade your defenses. Get a complete picture of all user activities on your network with an intuitive security analytics dashboard and reports to easily spot insider threats, account compromises, and data exfiltration attempts.

  • Contextual threat feed analytics

    Analyze log data by leveraging contextual insights to detect security incidents in your network with advanced threat analytics capability. Log360 allows you to discover malicious IPs, domains, and URLs that try to intrude into your network and helps you take preemptive action against lateral movement attacks.

Frequently asked questions

How does a lateral movement attack work? What are the stages of a lateral movement attack?

There are three main stages of a lateral movement attack.

  • Reconnaissance - In this stage, threat actors explore the network to find out weaknesses in the node, network, and applications to compromise endpoint security.
  • Credential dumping or privilege gathering - Here, attackers try to intrude into a network by obtaining login credentials through phishing and other social engineering techniques.
  • Gaining access to other systems in the organization's network - Adversaries propagate into the network until the target machine is reached, then they carry out an actual attack by exfiltration of sensitive information.

What are the different types of lateral movement attack techniques?

  • Credential theft
  • Exploitation of remote services
  • Pass the hash
  • Pass the ticket
  • Internal spear phishing
  • Lateral tool transfer
  • SSH hijacking
  • RDP hijacking
