Sophisticated, well-funded cyber criminals target Privileged Accounts because they provide the admin rights to steal data on a massive scale, disrupt critical infrastructure, and install malware. They usually start by obtaining user credentials, either from employees, 3rd party contractors, or partners. Attacks usually unfold over a period of months allowing intruders to perform reconnaissance, escalate privileges, cover their tracks and finally exfiltrate data. Privileged Access Management can help prevent, detect and respond to attacks involving Privilege Identity Theft.
Attackers have the knowledge and resources to exploit unknown vulnerabilities which pattern based tools like SIEM cannot detect.
Adding more layers of authentication can make your organization more secure but they often make users’ lives more difficult and constrain business.
Once an incident becomes known, it is often difficult to determine the extent of the damage caused by the attack.
Once an attacker obtains valid credentials, traditional, one-off authentication tools like password management vaults become ineffective.
Searchable, video-like replay of sessions enables security teams to see exactly what the attacker has done, not just session metadata.
Turnkey solution that requires no agents on end-points, can be deployed in days rather than months saving the cost of long, complicated professional services projects.
No other solution captures the depth of detail of privileged sessions such as keystrokes and mouse movements that enable detection of identity theft through behavioral biometrics.
Balabit’s Privileged Session Management can be seamlessly integrated with a variety of security tools including Password Management systems, Multi-factor authentication tools, and Ticketing systems.
