The Role Identity Plays in Nearly Every Attack—Including Ransomware


The common misconception that identity infrastructure and IAMs like Active Directory, Okta, or Ping can adequately secure the entire identity infrastructure is to blame for the continued barrage of cyber and ransomware attacks. Yes, each of these vendors has security controls baked into their solution, however they cannot extend those controls outside their environments to provide visibility, context, and protection beyond their walls. Hackers use the gaps between these tools to move throughout a company and evade detection.

Identity infrastructure remains the most unprotected part of the technology stack and needs dedicated protection, as organizations already apply for cloud, endpoints, or networks.

Watch this conversation with Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder of Silverfort, as he takes us through why identity security remains the most unprotected part of the security stack, and what needs to change to advance the state of cybersecurity.
