Identity Detection and Response (IDR):
An Introduction to Attivo Networks
Despite having deep knowledge of how malicious attacks proceed, cyber defenders continue to struggle with reducing security risk. MITRE ATT&CK identifies lateral movement and privilege escalation (often involving Active Directory) as top avenues attackers leverage to target infrastructure.
Forward-thinking cyber experts proposed that lateral movement, privilege escalation and Active Directory (AD) attacks could be better detected and mitigated by using identity information. Such insight has resulted in a new discipline called Identity Detection and Response (IDR).
In this report, security analyst firm TAG Cyber, introduces IDR and helps guide enterprise teams through the IDR solution selection and implementation process. This report also provides guidance on how to use IDR for risk mitigation and highlights the practical use of this technology through the Attivo Networks platform.
