MFA can be circumvented by modern identity attack techniques. Thwarting cyber attackers starts by understanding the techniques they rely on to bypass MFA protected users, and responding with a holistic, well-rounded identity security strategy that can fill these gaps.
Lateral movement has been a common factor in breaches, using identity as a universal attack vector to traverse environments unchecked. Organizations must have full visibility of the threat posed by identity and proactively wrap MFA round exposed assets.
Given that compromised credentials are a leading cause of cyber attacks, many cyber insurance underwriters are looking for robust privileged access management (PAM) and multifactor authentication (MFA) controls before pricing out their policies.
Many cyber insurance providers are now requiring basic security hygiene from their customers. One of those requirements is multi-factor authentication (MFA), which adds a layer of protection to sign-in processes.
The quick transition to the Zero-Trust model is mainly fueled by remote work, cloud adoption and an increase in deploying devices in recent years. Having the right security solutions to support a Zero-Trust strategy is critical. Here are three keys to implement a Zero-Trust approach successfully.
