Stolen passwords are the leading cause of hacking-related data breaches. To discuss what can be done to mitigate this security vulnerability, Identity Week spoke with Steve Tout, CEO of VeriClouds.
The idea is that when an incident occurs it triggers an automated credentials rotation in real-time to shut the bad guys down.
Many Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) may think they don’t have the budgets or the means for effective cyber security. But if they change the way they manage the one security element that hackers exploit most – privileged credentials – they can be much more secure.
Stolen credentials are an ongoing, serious IT security problem. Using tools like key loggers, nation-state attackers and cyber criminals can easily capture user names and passwords.
According to the survey, 87% of IT professionals believe large financial hacks are happening more often than reported – and right under the watchful eyes of security auditors.
The reality of today’s cyber security landscape is that attackers can breach your network regardless of your countermeasures. Fortunately, with adaptive privilege management you can remediate security threats faster than cyber attackers can exploit them.
