Cobalt Incident Report: You’re Only as Strong as Your Weakest Link

No matter how mature an organization’s security posture is, they are only as safe as their weakest link. This was true for one eSentire customer that experienced a Cobalt Strike attack via a third-party partner. Fortunately, eSentire’s Security Operation Center (SOC), leveraging esENDPOINT’s proprietary machine learning capabilities, detected and mitigated the threat before exfiltration could occur. Read this report to learn how eSentire isolated the machines and stopped the intrusion before the attacker’s intent was made clear or their plan fully executed.
