Security Posture Management

Attackers are exploiting lax security configurations to carry out new types of attacks that leverage privileged user accounts and third-party applications as entry points into cloud email platforms.

Gain the risk awareness you need to defend cloud email’s multiple entry points, with the Security Posture Management add-on to Abnormal Inbound Email Security.

Cloud Configurations are an Email Security Blind Spot

Siloed

The most business-critical cloud email configuration settings are scattered across multiple control panes that can be difficult to find.

Low Visibility

Security teams must collaborate with other teams to manage cloud email platforms, resulting in a lack of visibility and context into configuration changes and their implications.

Complex

As SaaS adoption increases, security teams are challenged to keep track of current posture in an increasingly-complex environment.

 

PROBLEM:

Security Teams Lack Insight into Cloud Email Security Posture

Emerging attack techniques are exploiting new entry points to cloud email platforms, opportunistically looking for gaps in security controls. But security teams have limited visibility to their current posture, and with hundreds of thousands of potential configurations across users, third-party applications, and email tenants, it is operationally difficult for them to maintain visibility when changes occur.

 

THE SOLUTION:

Abnormal Inbound Email Security with Security Posture Management

Security Posture Management improves the risk posture of cloud email environments by helping security teams understand and take action on configuration gaps. No painful manual efforts, spreadsheets, or PowerShell scripts are needed to perform discovery and mitigate risk.

Abnormal automatically increases your risk visibility by building behavioral profiles of the applications, people, and tenants connected to your cloud email environment. Armed with this knowledge, the platform monitors them for high-risk configuration drifts, including privilege escalations, new third-party apps, and conditional access policy exceptions.

 

How Abnormal Empowers Security Teams with Posture Insights

Builds Behavioral Profiles of Employees, Applications, and Email Tenants

Only Abnormal integrates with your cloud email platform in minutes and builds a deep understanding of the identities and entities across your enterprise to better detect risks and threats.

Knowledge Bases synthesize tens of thousands of data points to provide unique profiles of your employees, connected third-party applications, and email tenants, and then summarize their recent activities.

Builds Behavioral
 

Continuously Monitors for Configuration Drifts

No more quarterly audits, spreadsheets, or PowerShell scripts are needed to identify new risks in your environment.

Abnormal continuously looks for user, tenant, and application-specific configuration shifts and highlights them to administrators. With one click, security teams can see the context of the change and identify the appropriate next steps.

 

Alerts You to High-Risk Activity in Seconds

Security Posture Management alerts you to high-risk activities that may have circumvented your approval processes, like new applications integrated into your Microsoft tenant or new administrator users added to the environment.

With this information, security teams can take the appropriate downstream action to mitigate potential risk.

 

Facilitates Focused Action on Posture Gaps

Analysts can review the queue of new configuration changes and clear those that are relatively low risk.

This allows security teams to focus on high-risk and meaningful events while acknowledging lower-impact or expected configuration changes.

 
 

Manual Approaches to Monitoring Posture

  • One-size-fits-all scoring frameworks that lack business context
  • Requires PowerShell scripts
  • Results in manual audits that generate endless to-do lists
  • Requires parsing millions of configuration logs to extract insights
  • Creates noisy configuration logs

Abnormal’s Modern Approach to Posture Management

  • Naturally complements inbound email security for more holistic protection
  • Focused on the most critical email entry points
  • Allows analysts to focus on top issues
  • Automated and easy to use
  • Adds context to configuration changes to explain impact
  • Continuous monitoring with alerts in minutes

The challenge of dealing with cybercrime is complex. Human factors and the human-computer interface are a central component of cybersecurity, and while technology alone will not prevent cybercrime, neither will people. People alone also can also not be relied upon as a last line of defense in an organization’s cybersecurity strategy.
