Identity Protection for Retail

Data breaches in the retail sector cost an average of $3.28 million in 2023, with 50% of cyberattack victims experiencing extortion and 25% experiencing credential harvesting. The nature of retail organizations differs from most industries in that they are multi-site and multi-channel, resulting in many more entry points for ransomware attacks – and a massive attack surface to protect.
 

Challenge 1

 
Lack of visibility

Retailers deploy a multitude of devices and applications that operate independently, making it difficult for security teams to monitor and manage the entire identity lifecycle. As a result, unauthorized access and potential breaches are more likely to occur.

Challenge 2

 

 
Inability to stop lateral movement

Lateral movement attacks involve the use of valid but compromised user credentials. Authentications performed by an attacker are essentially identical to those performed by a legitimate user. As such, a lateral movement attack is a series of authentications that utilize the legitimate authentication infrastructure for malicious purposes.

Challenge 3

 
Lack of visibility into service accounts

Despite the critical role service accounts play in processes, programs, and applications, most organizations have extremely limited visibility of their behavior and roles, leaving them open to compromise and lateral movement.
