ManageEngine has released an ML-powered exploit triad analytics feature in its SIEM solution, Log360. It gives enterprises contextual visibility into the exploit triad: users, entities and processes. The feature update was unveiled at the ManageEngine User Conference at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre in the United Arab Emirates.

Manikandan Thangaraj, vice president of ManageEngine, said, “Today’s cyberthreats masterfully blend into the fabric of legitimate activity, weaponizing stolen credentials, mimicking trusted processes and exploiting human vulnerabilities. These insidious tactics create a critical challenge: an extended data breach life cycle.

“It takes an alarming 277 days to identify and contain a data breach, with expenses surging by 23% after surpassing the 200-day mark. Manual, unguided threat analysis is a losing battle—a labyrinth of multi-tool chaos.”
