Doing ITDR Right: Identity Infrastructure Protection Demands the Proper Context
Updated: Nov 9
Finding security blind spots throughout an entire enterprise is clearly a core tenet of our mission here at AuthMind. But implementing Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) correctly also involves a particular emphasis on protecting the core identity infrastructure of any organization.
Let’s talk specifics. Many identity-related vendors will alert the company when they believe there is a potential problem with their core identity infrastructure. They’ll say they think you have an issue with your Active Directory. For example, it may indicate there’s a possible relay attack or some other type of malicious activity taking place. However, in a huge percentage of cases, most of the information stops there. The intelligence comes to a grounding halt. Why? Because they cannot tell you who is attacking you if it’s from an external source. And that’s clearly a crucial bit of information to help expedite remediation.
It comes down to one word: context. Cybersecurity and IT personnel need context to combat attacks quickly and most effectively. AuthMind’s unique access neural graph, which has the needed flows and correlation, will provide the source of the attack nearly 100 percent of the time. That’s what enables remediation to take place in real time. Explaining that you have a problem isn’t enough – the full (and needed) picture is simply missing.
On the directory side, AuthMind helps you get to the root cause and fix it there. Research less, remediate more – a likely welcomed approach for many time-strapped SOC or IT team members. If you can immediately know who’s doing what and from what machine, you’re that much further into the process than you would otherwise be in most cases.
Anything a comprehensive ITDR solution can do to streamline the remediation and protection process is a notable step in the right direction. The talent shortfall within the cybersecurity space only exacerbates the ever-growing problem facing CISOs, CIOs and the entire C-suite. Important context surrounding an attack is needed, but it’s often left for team members to find on their own.
Deployments of AuthMind frequently lead to moments of surprise and intrigue, as the solution automatically provide context for both minor and more intricate issues. To request an AuthMind demo, visit https://www.authmind.com/form.
