Anomaly
Detection

Real-time detection and alerting of anomalous activity that may cause or be a precursor to an attack

A Unified Front Against Software Security Threats

Xgyeni’s solutions are designed to seamlessly align with your DevSecOps practices, embedding security into the heart of your development lifecycle. Ensure your software remains unaltered from its original design to final deployment, defending against external attacks and internal vulnerabilities.

Holistic Approach to secure your SSC

from code tampering, integrating multiple layers of defense to shield your code at every stage of the development process. Our system harmonizes event analysis and change monitoring to detect and prevent unauthorized changes in code, dependencies, pipelines, or configuration files.

Innovations in Anomaly Detection

make Xygeni excel in pinpointing established threat patterns through sophisticated rule-based algorithms meticulously crafted to differentiate between standard development activities and aberrations that could signal security compromises. 

Xygeni's Anomaly Detection Capabilities and Functionalities

Real-Time Anomaly Detection

Real-time anomaly detection capabilities are designed to offer immediate and vigilant monitoring of the software development environment:

  • Instantly detects events that violate pre-set rules.
  • Triggers immediate alerts upon suspicious behavior detection.
  • Integrates alerts with external channels like Slack for broader reach.
  • Centralizes alert management in a comprehensive dashboard.
  • Provides a contextual understanding of detected anomalies for teams.
  • Enables in-depth analysis for informed decision-making and future rule refinements.
Code-tampering

Code Tampering Detection

It recognizes changes in elements, such as build and configuration files, often unnoticed by standard review processes:

  • Employs a comprehensive set of rules to examine commits and code changes
  • Detects unauthorized or malicious modifications in any code or critical file 
  • Identifies changes in build files, dependencies, and configuration of the SCM or CI/CD.
  • Offers customization options for tailored detection, including defining critical files.
  • Delivers detailed findings directly to the Xgyeni platform for team collaboration

User Behavior Tracking

Xgyeni ensures that no aspect of the development process is left unchecked and provides an early warning system that significantly prevents insider threats:

  • Monitors user activities to identify unusual or potentially compromised operations.
  • Covers a wide range of security events, including monitoring of skipped security measures, permission changes, and configuration updates.
  • Acts as an early warning system against insider threats or identity theft.

Customizable Ruleset

Xgyeni’s Anomaly Detection system provides a robust, adaptable framework for enhancing software development security:

  • Offers flexibility for teams to customize rules based on specific security policies.
  • Adapts to unique risk profiles of different development environments.
  • Ensures that alerts are relevant and aligned with organizational practices.

Seamless DevOps Integration

Xgyeni ensures vigilant, streamlined integration that enhances oversight without burdening your team:

  • Offers continuous monitoring across platforms like GitHub, GitLab, Jenkins, and Azure DevOps.
  • Utilizes specialized Sensors and Plugins tailored for each environment.**
  • Draws insights from multiple data points within the development pipeline.
  • Integrates seamlessly without adding complexity or requiring significant changes.

About Anomaly Detection

The Peril in the Pipeline: Code Tampering & Behavioral Anomalies in the Software Supply Chain

Code tampering and behavioral anomalies within development teams present insidious risks that can undermine the entire structure.

 

Code Tampering is emerging as a stealthy adversary. Malicious actors exploit software dependencies and development pipelines, injecting harmful code or manipulating legitimate processes to serve their nefarious purposes. These acts of tampering can go undetected, only to wreak havoc once the software is in production

 

Beyond malicious threats, the human element injects a level of unpredictability into the software supply chain. Behavioral anomalies — such as atypical code commits or unusual operational changes by developers and DevOps engineers — can be symptomatic of deeper issues. These might range from compromised insider accounts to process deviations, each carrying the potential to erode the integrity of the supply chain.

 

The Ripple Effect: Measuring the Impact of Code Tampering on Businesses

Code Tampering attacks strike at the heart of enterprise security, potentially leading to significant financial losses, eroding customer trust, and tarnishing brand reputation

 

The numbers speak volumes: Incidents of code tampering are not mere anomalies; they reflect a growing trend. Industry statistics reveal that such breaches can reduce a company’s market value, with affected businesses experiencing an average of a 5% stock price decline post-disclosure. The erosion of trust is both quantifiable and detrimental, with a reported 65% of consumers losing trust in a brand after a security breach, underscoring the critical need for preventative measures.
