Over half of all security breaches are caused by someone already inside your network. Even the best perimeter defenses can do nothing to stop insider threats, so it's essential to also have strong Active Directory security and governance in place.

To combat insider threats effectively, you have to protect all your sensitive data, comply with data privacy regulations and continually pass audits. And to do this, you must get user permissions under control and keep a close eye on privileged user activity. But SIEM tools are only as good as the data you feed into them — and native logs have major gaps and lack fidelity in critical areas.

You need a security and compliance solution that limits your vulnerabilities and helps you respond quickly to threats and breaches.
