Identity Threat Detection & Response

Detect & Respond to SaaS Threats

Identity Threat Detection & Response (ITDR) is a set of security measures designed to detect and respond to identity-related security threats. These IOCs provide forensic signs of a potential breach, such as malware, data breaches, unusual behavior, and other suspicious events.

ITDR provides a second layer of protection for SaaS applications. It combines Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP) with User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) to detect threat actors and prevent attacks from being carried out.

Prevent, Detect and Respond to Threats

With the transition to the cloud, ensuring corporate security has expanded beyond network and perimeter solutions. Business-critical SaaS applications are the new corporate frontier, and defending threats demands an identity-centric approach.


A breach can originate from poor hygiene, such as inadequate user governance, misconfigurations, 3rd party connected apps, or user devices with low hygiene. As a means of prevention, SSPM should operate as the security layer in the identity fabric to establish robust user governance.


As an additional layer of defense, ensure threat detection mechanisms are in place to identify IOCs, such as suspicious activities, malicious applications, or changes to security and sensitive configurations.


Once a threat is detected, the security team can immediately respond and initiate a mitigation action based on forensic data provided by Adaptive Shield and connect to any SOC & SOAR system to streamline the remediation process.

2023 SaaS-to-SaaS Access Report

Any app that can improve business operations is quickly added into the SaaS stack. However, employees don’t realize that this SaaS-to-SaaS connectivity, which typically takes place outside the view of the security team, significantly increases risk.In an effort to better understand this challenge, Adaptive Shield’s researchers analyzed anonymized data from hundreds of tenants to discover the current state of SaaS-to-SaaS access.
