Inside-Out Defense Detects, Remediates Privilege Access Abuse

Inside-Out Defense, a cybersecurity platform that solves privilege access abuse, emerged today from stealth funded by Bain & Company to provide real-time detection and remediation to privilege access abuse, one of today’s most prolific attack vectors.

Ninety-nine percent of cyber breaches are because of human error, emphasizing privilege abuse through a compromised identity or malicious insider. Today’s cybersecurity market is flush with point solutions that only look for a few known privilege abuse signatures and are reactive in nature, only detecting these abuses days to months after the event. The industry solutions focus has been on plugging access vulnerabilities instead of breaking the attack chains.

“Industry recognizes that privilege access abuse is at the foundation of most cyber breaches. Without the ability to see how access is used throughout the enterprise, CISOs and cybersecurity teams are blindsided by their biggest problem area,” said Ravi Srivatsav, Co-Founder & CEO of Inside-Out Defense. “With today’s launch of Inside-Out Defense, we are answering the enterprise’s call for a holistic approach to staving off privilege access abuse, with the industry’s first platform to provide access intent, real-time detection, and in-line remediation.”

Inside-Out Defense is a SaaS, agentless privilege access abuse detection and remediation platform that supports all environments and applications and is built for ‘Continuous Validation of Trust.’ The platform complements existing identity access management (IAM), privilege access management (PAM), and custom identity solutions. The platform enables the determination of the gaps between known and unknown abuse behaviors to stop privilege abuse in real-time, at scale.

Key features include:

  • Privilege Abuse Remediation – Real-time detection of privilege access abuse behaviors and in-line remediation of malicious privilege access through a kill switch.
  • Access Intent – Customers get a 360-degree profile of malicious access requests, their context, and intent, offering a real-time view of the organization’s access posture.
  • Coverage Across the Entire Organization – Inside-Out Defense provides complete coverage across the organization’s environments, including infrastructure (cloud & on-prem), applications (SaaS, managed, unmanaged), APIs, and human/ non-human users. It complements existing customer security tooling, including IAM, PAM, SIEM, Workflow tools, etc. Non-invasive integration with customer environments and operational within minutes.
