Extend your threat detection and response capabilities
Today’s constantly evolving threat landscape traps organizations in a “threat cycle.” As new threats emerge, new security technologies are needed to address them. Another threat emerges, another technology follows.
Stuck in this continuous threat cycle, organizations tend to amass disparate security point solutions. This leads to an IT security environment that is siloed, complex to integrate, and difficult to manage.
AlienApps™ break the threat cycle by extending the threat detection and security orchestration capabilities of the USM platform to other security and productivity tools that your IT team uses, providing a consolidated approach to threat detection and response.
With AlienApps, you can monitor more of your security posture directly within the USM platform. AlienApps also enable you to automate and orchestrate response actions when threats are detected, greatly simplifying and accelerating the threat detection and incident response processes.
How AlienApps benefit you
Centralize your data
Collect critical data from your on-premises, cloud infrastructure, and SaaS applications, making it easier and more efficient to respond to threats.
Respond to threats faster
Communicate important security information back to your other IT and security tools, creating a closed loop threat detection and response process.
Data enrichment and analytics
Enrich your data to help you capture, analyze, visualize, and respond to threats, improving your visibility into the latest threats and reducing the signal to noise ratio for better prioritization of threats which demand immediate attention.
Highly extensible architecture
Gain access to new security technologies easily to keep you ahead of the changing threat landscape without bringing on new security point products, solving the threat cycle dilemma and significantly improving your threat detection and response capabilities.
Orchestrate and automate
Orchestrate incident investigation and response activities when threats are detected, greatly simplifying and accelerating the threat detection and incident response processes.
Stay on top of the latest threats
Gain insights into trends and identify anomalies using the latest threat intelligence from AT&T Alien Labs.
In addition to the standard AlienApps functionality, Advanced AlienApps offer even more robust automation and orchestration capabilities. Advanced AlienApps collect and enrich log data, perform threat analysis, and provide workflow that coordinates response actions with third-party applications to provide security orchestration, allowing your IT team to take immediate action directly from the USM platform.

What is the difference between an AlienApp and an Advanced AlienApp?
AlienApps translate raw log data into normalized events for analysis by USM Anywhere, while Advanced Alienapps do much more, including collection and enrichment of log data, performing threat analysis, and providing workflow that coordinates response actions with the infrastructure and third-party applications to provide security orchestration. In addition, each Advanced AlienApp has a built-in dashboard in USM Anywhere.
