This article explains how to connect Exabeam Security Analytics to Workbench.

Step 1: Enable console access

The Exabeam Security Management Platform uniquely combines a data lake for unlimited data collection, machine learning for advanced analytics, and automated incident response into an integrated set of products. The SOC analysts require a dedicated user account, which allows us to respond to security alerts and leverage the data available in Exabeam Security Analytics.
