Shrink your attack surface and reduce cyber breach risk
Privileged user accounts, or credentials, are a common entry point for hackers to compromise a network. Since many IT professionals use multiple privileged accounts to access endpoints in the network, the volume of credentials to manage and secure is high. Credentials are often stored insecurely and in plain text, such as on sticky notes or in shared spreadsheets. Passwords are often forgotten, non-compliant, repeated, rarely or never changed, or shared with the wrong person. Hackers take advantage of these vulnerabilities to steal privileged credentials to access and pivot around your network, appearing as legitimate users.
Additionally, many organizations are now subject to industry compliance mandates or internal security policies that require reporting and audit trail capabilities that track privileged credential usage.
