Insider Threat Intelligence
EXPANDING THE SCOPE
OF YOUR SECURITY STRATEGY
Without an internal threat game plan, corporations leave a gaping hole in their security strategy. The average time it takes for a corporation to detect a data breach is over five months! If you have critical data to protect, having an incomplete internal threat strategy puts your corporation in significant jeopardy.
Proactive Endpoint Visibility & Analysis
With up to 60% of breaches coming from internal threats, it’s critical that corporations proactively monitor all endpoints for the rapid detection of internal breaches. Cerebral agents can be deployed on Windows, MAC, Android devices as well as Windows servers (prime targets for attackers posing as insiders, utilizing compromised credentials). Cerebral protects both physical and virtualized endpoints.
Detection Alone Is Not Enough
Data Breach Response (DBR) is critical to minimizing the impact of a breach. Once the alarm is sounded, how quickly can you react? Cerebral’s Time-Capsule DVR lets see video of the incident, as it unfolded. This visibility allows you to immediately delineate false alarms from a real threats and take immediate action with 100% confidence.

INTEGRATED & INTELLIGENT
Cerebral provides an end-to-end integrated internal threat intelligence platform that maximizes both security and efficiency while providing the concrete proof to take legal action.
ALL THE TIME
Cerebral monitors all user activity at the endpoint, including:
Significantly more sophisticated than browser history, Veriato software records and maintains information about web activity, including web mail usage, file uploads and how long a user was engaged or active on a site.
Cerebral watches access to workstations and servers for unusual access by IP addresses, geolocation and more.
Capture and analyze communication activity in traditional email clients as well as many popular webmail services. A searchable system of record that can be alerted and reported on.
Chat & IM Activity
Capture, scan, alert and report on communications activity occurring on commonly used messaging apps; creates a definitive record for compliance and investigative uses.
Using computational linguistic analysis, Veriato can identify and categorize opinions expressed in email text, to determine the writer’s sentiment and sentiment changes that can point towards disgruntled workers and possible security risks.
Autonomously captures connections made by applications, including ports used and bandwidth consumed as well as time and location of connection.
File & Document Tracking
Tracks activities on local, removable, and cloud storage, as well as print operations. See when files are created, edited, deleted, or renamed.
When needed, the option to record every keystroke, including “hidden” characters and combinations, insures you have the visibility you need into the activity of highly privileged users.
Captures all application usage to provide true reporting on what application are being used, by who, and for how long.
Data on the location of a mobile device can be tracked as well as configured to alert security when a user device enters a restricted location or moves outside a specified geographic area.
Produces an accurate record of session time and activity. Tracks log-on and log-off but does not rely on log-off to identify when session activity ends.
Dark Web Tracking
Be alerted when employees access .onion sites.
BIG DATA & AI
Second by second information gathering for all users on the network creates a big data scenario that not even the best security team could sift through. It’s like looking for a needle in thousands of everchanging haystacks.
Veriato AI (UEBA) continually scrutinizes all users’ activity and sentiment, watching for anomalies in behavior compared with their personal baseline or that of the group.
Additionally Cerebral will watch for outsiders trying to access the network with stolen credentials.
What is Veriato AI
When Cerebral identifies a possible threat, it immediately notifies the security team. With an extremely low false positive rating (<2%). Cerebral’s alerting maximizes the efficiency of the security team by eliminating the need to have people constantly monitoring employees, hoping to find an issue.
With the average time of breach detection reaching over five months, it’s obvious that many companies are not receiving breach alerts. With the ultimate goal of keeping the compromised data securely in house, alerting is critical to rapidly locking down the breach.
My Work, My IP
IMMEDIATELY SEE EXACTLY WHAT’S HAPPENING
Once an alert is received, Cerebral’s Time-Capsule DVR gives you the ability to look directly at a video of the user’s screen.
The ability to see the user move their mouse across the screen as they open files, download data or surf the internet is invaluable in rapidly determining whether the user’s actions are benign, a hazardous mistake or deliberately malicious. You can scroll back and see what the user did 5 minutes, 5 hours or 5 weeks ago, letting you:
Act rapidly with 100% confidence
See the extent of the breach
See the attack strategy
See who their internal or external accomplices are
DATA BREACH RESPONSE (DBR)
Respond With Speed & Confidence
Once a breach is identified Cerebral’s video playback allows you to react immediately and with 100% confidence. There are no more lengthy investigations to determine what a network alert actually means. You can react in minutes, notifying HR, management, operational security and even law enforcement. Additionally, the ability to look at video from days, weeks or months ago allows you to investigate the attack strategy as well as identify accomplices, outside and inside the organization..
Taking Legal Action
Pictures are worth a thousand words, and nowhere is this more true than in the legal system. The Cerebral screen recordings can be exported as timestamped image or video files, creating vital evidence in inter-company disciplinary action as well as in legal proceedings. Veriato’s detailed logs, reports, images and video evidence have been used in hundreds of cases worldwide to successfully prosecute malicious insiders.
The Human Factor
Humans are always the weakest link in any security strategy, therefore user endpoint monitoring is crucial for insider threat security.
Cerebral agents can be deployed on Windows and Mac workstations, Windows Servers, as well as Android devices. They can be deployed in physical or virtualized environments.
Because it’s the users’ activity that we’re really concerned with (not the device), Cerebral will follow users from device to device, creating a cross platform, network wide analysis of all users.
