The missing piece in the security puzzle

As attackers fine tune their methods to bypass traditional security controls it's time to start taking identity seriously.

A look back at the Top 5 breaches of 2013 found attackers fine tuning their methods to bypass traditional security controls. At Target, we saw attackers overcome strong perimeter defences to install malware on POS systems. We also saw the local crowdsourcing website Kickstarter have its customer details stolen and the misuse of privileged user access rights by a defence contractor who was able to leak details of the NSA’s PRISM program.

The common thread among all of these breaches was that the victim organisations were unable to rapidly detect and respond to threats resulting from abnormal or inappropriate activity by internal users acting within their IT infrastructures.
