The Account Compromise Detector identifies an account that exhibits signs of being taken over by a threat actor. The detector combines multiple entities related to user login and post-login behavior to deliver a more comprehensive view of account behavior and produce more true positives. If multiple suspicious actions are seen, it is more likely that the account is being used by a threat actor. Entities are provided to the Account Compromise Detector by other Taegis™ XDR detectors including Password Spray and Kerberoasting.
