Protect Against User Account Attacks with SOC Solutions and Services

Disrupt user account attacks across your domain – endpoint, email user credentials and cloud apps

As cyber defender teams add additional security technologies beyond the endpoint to detect attacks against user accounts, the additional volume of alerts (many still being false positives!) creates an exponential burden on these teams to investigate each and every alert. Even missing one successful credential attack can lead to data compromise.

Further compounding this problem, adversaries have multiple attack vectors to steal, harvest, and misuse user account credentials which severely limit how endpoint-oriented response actions can fully disrupt an active misuse of a stolen user credential across authentication sources and cloud applications.


Speed up user account investigation and response 24x7x365 across the attack surface

Prevent identities from being compromised by identifying potential risks related to user accounts and credential misuse.

All-in-security integration with access and visibility across Microsoft Security in one portal.

Detect and disrupt threat actors attempting to infiltrate user accounts at any point during the attack chain.

Post-breach remediation of compromised user accounts means our experts will take response actions on your behalf and work with your team until the case is resolved.
