Exabeam’s Outcomes Navigator aids threat detection coverage

Exabeam, a cybersecurity provider and creator of new-scale SIEM for advancing security operations, has announced the general availability of Outcomes Navigator. It is an advanced visualisation feature within the new-scale SIEM product portfolio. 

“Outcomes Navigator helps cybersecurity leaders overcome one of their most significant challenges, which is having a clear understanding and way to visualise continuous detection coverage improvement against key security use cases across their business and IT environments," says the company. 

“Outcomes Navigator lets companies get a comprehensive and accurate score of true detection coverage across their business,” says Ash Hunt, global CISO of the Apex Group. "It gives CISOs a real way to show their executive team and the board exactly how well they are doing with detection coverage across all security use cases, and what further investments may or may not be needed. We look forward to the clear visualisations that highlight use case coverage over time and are also exportable for tracking and quarterly reports."

An overwhelming majority of security professionals (97%) report that they have the tools and processes to prevent intrusions or breaches, but 83% of organisations experienced more than one data breach in 2022.

In Exabeam's experience, the disconnect can largely be attributed to the lack of visibility and context security operations centre (SOC) teams have on adversary behaviour and the direct relationship between the choice and quality of security logs they absorb and parse for the most successful outcomes across use cases.

To solve the disconnect, Outcomes Navigator shows security teams how well the configuration of their environments protects them across all use cases and offers detailed recommendations on areas for improvement. It also shares coverage adaptability, and MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques impact common use case sub-categories, including compromised credentials, lateral movement, phishing, ransomware, cryptomining, data theft, and many more.

“Outcomes Navigator is a game changer for cybersecurity teams who, until now, have had to blindly trust that their SIEM is ingesting the right logs and then also extracting the right fields inside those logs to best protect their organisations," adds Andy Skrei, senior director of product management at Exabeam. "In too many cases, organisations have detection content turned on that will never trigger if something abnormal happens because the right data fields are not being extracted from the ingested logs. Outcomes Navigator fixes this SIEM industry problem once and for all with the deepest cross-examination of logs and detection logic."

Built on the cloud-native Exabeam Security Operations Platform, the new-scale SIEM product portfolio with Outcomes Navigator uses a behaviour-based approach to threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR), making it easier for organisations to detect security threats and respond more quickly.

“Outcomes Navigator is now available to all Exabeam New-Scale SIEM customers for all licenses,” informs Skrei.
