Secure New Tenants Faster with Multi-Tenant Management
Abnormal Security’s mission is to make the cloud a safer place for business by protecting employees wherever they work. With the release of the Multi-Tenant Management feature, we are one step closer to fulfilling that goal by allowing security teams to protect their distributed workforce and onboard new tenants more quickly.
Previously, if a customer wanted to protect an additional M365 or Google Workspace instance with Abnormal, it was a manual, multi-day process involving numerous exchanges and potential delays. The process included multiple steps including:
- Customer reaches out to their Abnormal Customer Success Manager (CSM).
- Customer provides the necessary information to onboard the workspace.
- CSM gives a new link for the workspace to integrate.
- Customer uses the link to grant Abnormal permission to their workspace.
- Abnormal begins building out a baseline behavior for the new tenant.
Now, with Multi-Tenant Management, adding a new child tenant only requires three steps:
- Navigate to settings.
- Name the new tenant.
- Grant access to the workspace.
This new enhancement allows Abnormal to be better equipped to support two of the most critical cybersecurity risk management use cases: Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) and Managed Security Partners (MSPs).
Protecting Mergers and Acquisitions
The mergers and acquisitions process is quite chaotic: both companies see large financial transactions, new people, and changing processes. As a result, most companies face spikes in cyberattacks around the time that acquisitions are announced (FBI).
Moreover, during this time, both organizations’ stock prices are highly sensitive, and breaches of sensitive information could harm or even jeopardize the acquisition. The timely protection of company data during mergers and acquisitions is extremely important to ensure a successful transaction.
Fortunately, the strength of security and the speed needed for onboarding is no longer at odds. With the release of multi-tenant management, an Abnormal-protected customer can onboard a new tenant with a few clicks. Previously, if an admin needed to onboard a new tenant, it could take up to a week with multiple back-and-forth conversations with the Abnormal support team.
