Exabeam has announced updates to its Security Management Platform (SMP). Exabeam SMP now can ingest data from Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blobs, and Google Cloud Platform Cloud Storage buckets. This enables security professionals to better distinguish malicious activity from normal behavior and easily identify and follow attacks before they lead to a security breach. 

Behaviors that it can now identify include users who create or attach policies that denote universal access, abnormal access to cloud storage objects, abnormal amounts of data being sent from buckets, enumeration of cloud storage objects, and additional irregular cloud admin activities.
