Protecting corporate credentials against today’s threats

White Paper Published By: IBM
Published:  Oct 13, 2015
Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

Corporate credentials. They’re the keys to your enterprise and more than likely you’ve taken many steps to protect them.

However, what many CISOs and security managers are finding is that traditional approaches to preventing credentials theft— from implementing stringent identity management policies to deploying anti-malware software—are no longer sufficient as the threat landscape changes.

Sophisticated and highly directed spear phishing emails are tricking employees to input their credentials on very convincing, yet fraudulent websites. And increasingly complex password policies are driving the user behaviors that companies are trying to prevent—the reuse of corporate credentials on unapproved third party sites.

Cybercriminals know this and now regularly target third party sites as they work to obtain employee log-in credentials and gain access to intellectual property and sensitive corporate data.

It has become evident by the number of high-profile credentials thefts that a new approach is needed to protect corporate credentials
