Credential-Based Attacks

Stop account takeover attacks

Account takeover (ATO) attacks have become all too familiar, and the results can be devastating. We help you keep privileged account takeovers from becoming data breaches.

The Landscape

It’s not a matter of if an account takeover will happen — but when.

Privileged accounts are routinely used to steal sensitive information and disrupt operations, without ever needing to run an exploit. Some SOC teams focus on monitoring failed login attempts and unusual user behavior, and lean on multi-factor authentication (MFA) to reduce risk. The truth is, those security measures are just one part of the ATO protection equation. You need a proven way to see and stop account takeover attacks in real time.

Attackers will find gaps in permissions

Attackers know the complexities of managing account permissions across network, cloud and SaaS apps leave gaps for them to abuse. Between dark web purchases and brute force attacks, they can easily crack usernames and passwords and take control of accounts.

Stop Azure AD attack
The Solution

Your privileged accounts span your business — so should your account takeover protection

Powered by the industry’s most advanced Attack Signal Intelligence™, the Vectra AI Platform lets you move at the speed of attackers.

Stop account takeovers in real time
Vectra AI continuously monitors activity across hybrid and multi-cloud. So you can stop account takeover attacks in minutes.
AI-driven detections

Attack Signal Intelligence monitors local and domain joined accounts, including domain admins, to find attackers moving laterally through your hybrid cloud environment.

Azure AD response

Vectra AI detects initial access to Azure AD actions against the Azure AD backend and progression into M365 applications. So you can stop attackers from gaining access to your SaaS app data with compromised Azure AD accounts.

AWS response

Don’t let stolen AWS credentials impact your cloud data and operations. Vectra AI lets you identify attackers using login credentials against the AWS control plane before they can orchestrate full attacks.

How it Works

Take action the moment online accounts are compromised

Privileged pathways are evasive

The first thing cyberattackers do after slipping past your prevention tools? Move laterally in search of privileged accounts — ones that can access sensitive data.

We spot progression before a breach occurs

Vectra AI learns account privilege with patented Privileged Access Analytics (PAA) to automatically focus on accounts most useful to attackers. It’s the fastest, most effective way to stop account takeover fraud.

Credential-based attacks move fast

Over-reliance on prevention tools means many SOC teams are constantly playing catch up with business email compromise and other exploits.

We equip you with early detection

Our patented algorithms understand the underlying privilege behind each set of user credentials, and detect cases where attackers abuse that privilege. These detection events are correlated across your network and cloud to provide a clear view of account compromise, regardless of where an attacker is active.

Account takeovers get buried in alerts

With thousands of false positives, it can be impossible to see where your organization is actually compromised. In fact, 71% of security analysts believe their companies have already been compromised but don't know it yet.

We give you true clarity

The Vectra AI platform uses machine learning to detect patterns and distinguish malicious activity from benign events. When a critical alert appears, you know it’s worth investigating. It’s how our customers stop account takeover attacks before any damage is done.
