Identity Risk

Security measures are only as good as the people or credentials you trust. Recent high profile data breaches have shined a spotlight on the risks of imposters masquerading as legitimate users or business partners to gain access to critical data and resources.

Overview

The information security industry is expected to top $75B in 2015, yet the primary focus remains on impeding network-based intrusions and malicious content in emails with very little focus on identity-based threats. To-date identity access management has been relegated to a reactive capability useful for audits and accountability, but hamstrung when it comes to proactive identity-based intrusions. The fact is that if your credentials seem legitimate, they are treated as legitimate. There has been no component of the security model focused on the ability to monitor, validate, and/or proactively deauthorize credentials that are deemed a threat.

Problems with Identity

  • Most credentials are user generated and of varying types & strengths
  • Even high assurance credentials are invisible to issuer after provisioning
  • Imposters denied access at one site can move on to other systems with impunity
  • Network & content-focused security are blind to these identity breaches

There Has Been No Monitoring Tool Focused on Identity Issues To-Date

By leveraging our experience as the creator and operator of Federated Trust, we were able to refine a decade of identity management and monitoring expertise into a suite of security products that help enterprise networks see what they trust and trust what they see. TrustMonitor™ analyzes the trust network by monitoring all issuers and credential metrics, while TrustValidator™ performs a vetting of the certificates used to sign emails and the security reputation of the certificate authorities.

Identity Risks

Information systems security is only as good as the people and credentials you trust. Recent high profile data breaches have shined a spotlight on the risks of “trusted” identities.

Evolving Identity

High-profile data breaches have demonstrated that credentials can no longer be taken at face value. The IT industry needs identity-based intrusion and threat analysis that is as evolved as network security tools.
