Why choose Balabit
Protection against priviledged identity theft
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.
Protection against priviledged insider threats
Users accessing Privileged Accounts, particularly administrative and system accounts on critical infrastructure, pose a significant risk to IT organizations. Malicious insiders with valid Privileged Account credentials can cause serious damage. They can steal data on a massive scale, wipe databases clean, misconfigure core networking devices and install malware on critical systems. They also know how to avoid detection and cover their tracks. Privileged Access Management can help prevent, deter, detect and respond to attacks involving Privilege Insider Threats.
Faster incident response
Following an incident, the simple question “Who did what?” is one of the most critical, yet most difficult, questions to answer. Analyzing thousands of text-based logs can be a nightmare and may require the participation of costly external experts. Without recording user sessions, determining the responsible party is almost impossible, and often leads to accusations along with time and money wasted on investigating the incident. Privileged Access Management can reduce the time and costs to resolve incidents.
Many laws, regulations and industry standards call for monitoring and controlling access to privileged accounts. As a result, companies have to increase their control over business processes, ensuring that only those employees who are authorized can access critical IT assets. Complying with the variety of regulations and standards can be costly.
