Rapid7 Announces Availability of European Hosting Option for UserInsight
Apr 22 15
Rapid7 announced that its intruder analytics offering, UserInsight, now offers a European hosting option to help organizations meet their regional data hosting compliance requirements. Driven by market demand, UserInsight customers can now choose to host data in Germany, as an alternative to the United States. UserInsight provides visibility into intruder behavior across an organization’s entire ecosystem, from the endpoint to the cloud. The new European hosting option will give organizations more choice under which privacy laws they prefer to host their data. Rapid7 will leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the EU, which was recently declared compliant by the Article 29 Working Party, a European data rights group. The group’s report indicated that AWS standard contractual clauses meet all the requirements of EU data protection. UserInsight allows organizations to rapidly detect and investigate security incidents. It focuses on preventing intruders from taking over user accounts with stealthy attacks, such as stolen credentials and lateral movement. The solution reduces alert fatigue, puts activity in the ecosystem into the user context, makes investigations easier such that the entire team can participate, and helps speed up incident response time. European organizations currently leveraging UserInsight, who were previously opting to host data in the United States, are in a range of industries, including technology, retail, professional services, and media. These organizations are driven by the need to detect and stop intruders, increase user visibility across the network, and enhance incident investigation. European hosting is available immediately.
Rapid7 Announces Integration of Intruder Analytics Solution with Microsoft Office 365 to Improve Security and Transparency
Apr 21 15
Rapid7 announced that at the RSA Conference 2015 that its intruder analytics solution, Rapid7 UserInsight, now integrates with Microsoft Office 365. Rapid7’s UserInsight solution enables incident response professionals to detect and investigate incidents from endpoint to cloud, providing security and transparency for cloud services, such as Office 365. Microsoft launched the new Office 365 Management Activity API on April 21, 2015 during its RSA Conference keynote. UserInsight monitors endpoints, networks, cloud services, and mobile devices, setting traps for intruders, detecting attacks automatically, and enabling faster investigation to mitigate the risks posed by compromised accounts. Integration with the new Office 365 Management Activity API allows Rapid7 to build solutions that provide Office 365 customers with a view of actions taken on their content in Office 365, and add to its comprehensive view of network and user behavior, giving organizations the ability to detect attacks across network, cloud, and mobile environments.
UserInsight builds a baseline understanding of a user’s behavior in order to identify changes that would indicate suspicious activity and help security professionals detect an attack. UserInsight collects, correlates, and analyzes data across all users and assets, including cloud applications, such that it can identify suspicious behavior. Examples of potential threats that can be detected within Office 365 include: Advanced attacks: UserInsight automatically correlates user activity across network, cloud, and mobile environments. UserInsight can detect advanced attacks such as lateral movement from the endpoint to the cloud, including Office365. Privileged user monitoring: Privileged users are often the ultimate target for intruders. UserInsight monitors Office 365 administrator accounts and alerts the security team of suspicious activity. Geographically impossible access: A key to protecting the environment is to be able to unify the network, mobile, and cloud environments. For example, a customer would receive an alert if an employee’s cell phone synchronizes email through Office 365 from Brazil within an hour of the same user connecting to the corporate VPN from Paris – clearly one of the connections cannot be legitimate. Account use after termination: UserInsight detects when a suspended or terminated employee accesses their Office 365 account, helping to stop stolen intellectual property and other business-critical information. Access to Office 365 from an anonymization service: UserInsight correlates a constantly-upda Once suspicious behavior is detected, security teams and incident responders can investigate the users and assets involved in context of various activity from the endpoint to the cloud, now including Microsoft Office 365 activity, and determine the magnitude and impact of the attack. With UserInsight’s visual investigation capabilities, customers can combine asset and user data on a timeline to rapidly investigate and contain the incident.
Thycotic Partners with Rapid7 for Enhanced Vulnerability Management
Apr 20 15
Thycotic announced the integration of its product, Secret Server, with Nexpose, Rapid7's vulnerability management product. As account access control becomes an even more critical facet of security infrastructure, this new integration provides IT administrators with the ability to perform more secure credentialed vulnerability scans. Rapid7's Threat Exposure Management solutions, which include Nexpose, allow information security teams to assess, prioritize, and quickly mitigate risk across their environments, from endpoint to the cloud. Nexpose can analyze vulnerabilities, controls, and configurations to find the 'who, what, and where' of IT security risk across the modern network. With Nexpose, users can efficiently manage vulnerabilities found in operating systems, third-party software, Web applications, browsers and databases, as well as identify misconfiguration issues, all in one solution. Nexpose offers robust analytics for prioritizing security issues, including business context and exploitability, to allow security teams to focus on the most critical risks. With the integration of Secret Server and Nexpose, IT administrators are able to mask credentials when accessing key applications and accounts on their network to perform vulnerability scans. Nexpose retrieves passwords directly from the Secret Server vault, which in turn maintains detailed security audit trails, tracking when a user accesses credentials and for what purpose. Administrators will maintain the ability to automatically generate complex passwords and perform scheduled rotations of credentials, diminishing the risk of privileged account abuses.
