Protect against supply chain attacks
Expel-validated security alerts and guided investigative actions
What does “supply chain” mean to your org? It could be any third-party provider that you interact with including cloud, software, or service providers. And your supply chain may be vulnerable, but you don’t know it. When data and systems are compromised by attackers using connected applications or services owned or used by external partners — that’s a supply chain, third-party or value-chain attack.
Software supply chain attacks are becoming increasingly common: like SolarWinds Orion.
For an attacker, supply chain attacks are alluring because it allows them to use supplier trust to start attacks and if the same supplier is used by multiple businesses, all those businesses can also become a target, increasing the number of victims exponentially.
Yep, they’re crafty devils.
How do supply chain attackers get in? As you’d expect, it’s the usual suspects: phishing emails, USB drives, stolen certificates, injecting code into firmware components, etc.

Expel uses automation to gather as much information as possible. That means Ruxie™ [Expel’s bot that automates investigative actions] can pull info from the EDR tool, our SaaS applications, and the cloud and append all of that right to the investigation. Expel uses my whole stack to paint the picture of what happened, if it’s bad, and what my team needs to do about it.”⎯Mark King | Security Engineer
I was able to share context about our environment right in Workbench, which Expel D&R engineers could use to filter and approve access. Expel is really on top of our custom requirements for our environment.”⎯Detection & Response Manager
