Bridging Security Gaps: An Abnormal Approach to Platform Integrations

Discover how Abnormal's innovative platform integrations are providing customers with enhanced threat detection, efficient incident response, and more.
April 4, 2024

As organizations navigate an increasingly complex threat landscape, they rely on a myriad of security solutions to safeguard their digital assets. However, the efficacy of these solutions often hinges on their ability to seamlessly communicate and share crucial insights in real time.

Platform integrations play a pivotal role in achieving this cohesion, allowing disparate security tools to work in tandem, thereby enhancing threat detection, incident response, and overall resilience. By integrating platforms, organizations can consolidate their security operations, streamline workflows, and gain a comprehensive view of their security posture, enabling them to proactively identify and mitigate emerging threats before they escalate into full-blown breaches.

Here, we explore how Abnormal’s unique approach to platform integrations is not only closing the gaps in cybersecurity but also setting a new standard for the industry. From advanced threat detection to streamlined incident response, discover how Abnormal is transforming the way organizations approach integrations to safeguard their digital assets.

Platform Integrations in Cybersecurity

Security analysts can more quickly and effectively understand alerts and determine the next crucial step in their incident response when security event information is shared between their tools. This helps teams work smarter and see a greater ROI from their toolset. It also makes the analyst experience better by removing some of the more menial comparative work, such as cross-referencing Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) or collecting information to understand the attack path and blast radius of an incident.

This is a core value with many types of security tools, such as security incident and event management (SIEM), security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR), identity threat detection and response (ITDR), and extended detection and response (XDR) tools. These each have a role in integrating security event data from across the network, endpoint, email, and cloud to be more actionable, automated, and effective.

As an API-based security tool, integrations are central to how Abnormal protects cloud-based email platforms. We integrate with Microsoft and Google’s cloud email platforms to ingest signals, understand human behavior in a customer’s email environment, and stop sophisticated known and unknown attacks. Each security event generated through Abnormal’s detection and remediation represents a piece of the customer organization’s overall threat landscape. Offering native integrations with SIEM, SOAR, and EDR/XDR tools is critical to supporting analyst workflows and security ROI.

Integrations allow SOC teams to cross-correlate Abnormal events with third-party threat intelligence tools, centralize security insights and reporting, and trigger automated investigation or remediation workflows.

Today, Abnormal offers 14 native integrations with widely used security tools. These include:

  • SIEM: Google Chronicle is the most recent addition to the list, joining Azure Sentinel, SumoLogic SIEM, Splunk Enterprise Security, and QRadarSIEM.

  • SOAR: These platform integrations include Palo Alto Cortex XSOAR, Rapid7 InsightConnect, Revelstoke, Hunters SOC Platform, Torq, Splunk SOAR.

  • XDR: a bi-directional integration with CrowdStrike Falcon Identity Threat Protection

  • Identity: Tools like Azure Active Directory, Okta, and ServiceNow ITSM.

Leveraging a REST API, threat logs and event data from the Abnormal platform can be used to enrich downstream incident investigation, orchestration, and response workflows. Analysts gain visibility across their security toolset into sophisticated socially engineered threats like account takeovers, business email compromise (BEC), phishing attacks, malware detections, and vendor email compromise (VEC).

In addition to native integrations, Abnormal’s REST API makes connections to additional security tools manageable for customers. New native integrations are always under consideration based on customer feedback to provide the best analyst experience and security outcomes for every organization that partners with and trusts Abnormal.

Fostering A Collaborative Security Landscape

In essence, platform integrations represent a transformative shift in how organizations approach cybersecurity. It is not merely about closing gaps but about building bridges that connect disparate security solutions, foster collaboration, and empower organizations to navigate the evolving threat landscape with confidence and resilience.

By teaming up with leading cybersecurity vendors and industry players, Abnormal contributes to a collaborative ecosystem that facilitates the exchange of vital threat intelligence data. This shared knowledge enhances our ability to detect and respond to emerging threats effectively, bolstering our customers' overall security posture.
