Palerra Partners With Salesforce to Enhance Security With User Behavior Analytics

Palerra to Demo Anomaly Detection and Incident Response at Salesforce World Tour New York, Booth 177

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2015) - Palerra, the cloud security automation company, today announced enhanced support for Salesforce solutions, designed to help organizations fulfill their obligation in the shared responsibility model for security. Utilizing Salesforce Event Monitoring functionality, the LORIC™ platform from Palerra now provides insights into usage trends and user behavior to help organizations manage security, audit and compliance.

Palerra will demo LORIC for Salesforce® at Salesforce World Tour New York 2015, booth 177, June 18.

"Recent targeted attempts such as the Dyre malware attack have prompted the need for an additional layer of security that amplify the native capabilities of the Salesforce platform," said Rohit Gupta, co-founder and CEO of Palerra. "LORIC flags anomalies by using machine learning to study user behavior and employing advanced data science techniques to analyze the Salesforce Event Log Files for any deviations. LORIC is a must-have tool for Salesforce administrators -- not only making their cloud environments more secure, but their jobs easier should an audit be necessary."

LORIC leverages Salesforce Event Monitoring to provide enhanced user behavior analytics features including:

  • Report Access: Monitoring to identify risk from users viewing and exporting data.
  • Data Tampering: Fine-grained support for monitoring and tracking custom objects for anomalous changes. This is in addition to standard object monitoring support that Palerra already offers.
  • Privileged User/Administrator Monitoring: Ability to monitor and track changes to security profile, roles, groups, and users by privileged users.
  • Breach Discovery: Automatically correlating user behavior across objects and time periods to identify potential breaches, removing the need for manual forensics.

The new capabilities are complemented by automatic incident response to immediately log and remediate incidents, limiting business disruption from data loss. In addition to Salesforce, LORIC monitors enterprise cloud services such as AWS, Box, Microsoft® Office 365™ and ServiceNow, and promotes the security of these services through a single pane of glass.

Event monitoring functionality is available within the LORIC for Salesforce solution immediately. For more information, visit online at LORIC for Salesforce.
