Bitwarden is an integrated, open-source password management solution for individuals and business organizations. Panther can collect, normalize, and monitor Bitwarden logs to help you identify any suspicious activity within your organization in real time. Your normalized data is then retained to conduct future security investigations in a serverless security data lake powered by Snowflake.
Use Cases for Bitwarden Event Logs
Bitwarden event logs show various types of activity in a user's Bitwarden account, such as item usages or sign-in attempts. Common security use cases for Bitwarden logs include monitoring for:
- User events such as login attempts and password changes
- Item events such as creating and deleting items
- Organization and Group event changes
Onboarding Bitwarden Logs in Panther
Panther’s integration for Bitwarden is fast and easy to configure, allowing you to onboard logs in just a few minutes. Simply select Bitwarden from the list of log sources within the Panther console, fetch your API key from Bitwarden, and enter basic credentials and your API Key into Panther.
For more details on onboarding or for supported log schema, you can view our Bitwarden documentation here.
Parse, Normalize, & Analyze
As Panther ingests Bitwarden event logs, they are parsed, normalized, and stored in a Snowflake security data lake. This allows you to write detections, identify anomalies, and conduct investigations in the context of days, weeks, or months of data.
Panther applies normalization fields to all log records, which standardizes names for attributes and empowers users to correlate data across all of your log sources. You can then use various search tools - such as Data Explorer, Indicator Search, and Query Builder - to investigate your normalized logs for suspicious activity or vulnerabilities. For more information on searching log data, check out our documentation on Investigations & Search.
Easily Customizable Detections
Panther users aren’t confined to restrictive detections or proprietary languages as seen in many SIEM platforms. Panther is architected around detection-as-code principles, giving you the ability to write Python to define detection logic and to integrate external systems like version control and CI/CD pipelines into your detection engineering processes. This results in powerful, scalable, and reusable scripting of detections for your security team.
Panther generates alerts when your detection rules or policies are triggered, and integrates with a variety of alert destinations to allow for easy access and management of any Bitwarden alerts. Alerts can also be sent to alert context or SOAR platforms for more remediation options.
Alerts are grouped into five different severity levels: Info, Low, Medium, High, and Critical. Your team has the ability to dynamically assign severity based on specific log event attributes.
If you have any questions about configuring or monitoring Bitwarden logs in Panther, our customer support team is here to help. All customers have access to support via a dedicated Slack channel, email, or in-app messenger.
