Adaptive Shield Introduces Identity Threat Detection and Response, Safeguarding the Future

By Greg Tavarez

We continue to see a surge in popularity of SaaS, characterized by its flexibility and scalability, that has prompted a substantial migration from conventional on-premises infrastructure. In fact, the SaaS market is estimated to be worth around $197 billion and estimated to reach $232 billion by 2024, according to research by Statista.

However, the SaaS popularity does still come with its challenges in terms of securing user identities, access control and data across a multitude of SaaS applications. The existing focus of identity threat detection and response, or ITDR, solutions on endpoints and active directory protection is insufficient to cater to the intricacies of this evolving landscape. 

The root of the issue lies in the intersection of legacy systems and the rapid expansion of cloud-based SaaS. Organizations must recognize the limitations of conventional ITDR approaches and proactively adapt their security measures to encompass the intricacies of SaaS environments.

SaaS security company Adaptive Shield has a solution to that.

Adaptive Shield unveiled its ITDR capabilities, and it comes hand in hand with its SaaS security posture management solution (which collectively offers a comprehensive approach to bolstering security throughout the SaaS ecosystem's lifecycle).

Before digging into the ITDR capabilities, here is some background on Adaptive Shield.

Adaptive Shield empowers organizations with a multi-faceted approach to thwart SaaS threats. This includes meticulous misconfiguration management, comprehensive SaaS-to-SaaS access and discovery, robust Identity and access governance, vigilant Device-to-SaaS risk management, and a dynamic ITDR mechanism.

The newly introduced ITDR by Adaptive Shield, which follows the company’s strategic investment by Blackstone (one of Adaptive Shield’s Fortune 500 customers), incorporates robust security protocols designed to identify and counter identity-related security threats using key indicators of compromise, or IOCs. These IOCs act as forensic markers, signaling potential breaches like malware intrusions, data leaks, anomalous activities and other suspicious incidents.

By blending continuous identity governance and identity threat identification within the SaaS environment, ITDR effectively bridges the gap, encompassing a spectrum of tactics, techniques and procedures, as well as detecting unusual user and entity behavior analytics, or UEBA, associated with compromised identities.

“Dealing with SaaS-related threats requires deep knowledge and proven expertise,” said Maor Bin, co-founder and CEO at Adaptive Shield. “As the only SaaS Security company that integrates with more than 130 applications to cover all attack surfaces, Adaptive Shield’s engines cross-reference and analyze in-context suspicious events from multiple sources, enabling the accurate detection of sophisticated and subtle identity-centric threats.”

With its comprehensive suite of offerings, Adaptive Shield enables organizations to thwart, identify and counteract a range of potential SaaS-related vulnerabilities.
