CISO Challenge #6

I need to identify shadow IT

Keeping device inventories up to date is highly challenging considering the wide range of tools and devices used in modern enterprises. As a result, it’s highly likely that there’s a considerable number of shadow IT devices in the network. These devices can be an entry door for attackers, as they are often not maintained and thus not patched.

Detecting shadow IT

Inventories and blacklists are often not up to date, resulting in internal and external shadow IT threats. ExeonTrace can detect both.

Are you facing other challenges that we didn't cover yet?

We are very happy to discuss them with you personally. Just book a live demonstration of ExeonTrace.

Main benefits of ExeonTrace

Comprehensive Visibility

Comprehensive Visibility

Visibility into your entire IT/OT network and all its interfaces to identify vulnerabilities (exposed services, shadow IT etc.) and malicious attack patterns in real-time.

Not affected by encryption

Not affected by encryption

Algorithms are unaffected by encrypted payloads since they are built to detect attack patterns based on metadata and not deep packet inspection.

Light-weight log data

Light-weight log data

Analysis of light-weight network log data instead of data-heavy traffic mirroring. Metadata can be exported from existing network sources (switches, firewalls etc.) without hardware sensors.
