Identity Threat Defense

Identity Threat Detection and Response

Detect and prevent identity risk to stop lateral movement and privilege escalation. Break the attack chain.

Identity theft is a growing threat in today’s digital landscape. Attackers can slip through existing defences. And they can complete attacks in a matter of days. The Proofpoint Identity Threat Defense family of solutions provides you with the identity threat protection and response you need to defend against these attacks. And it continuously discovers and remediates your real-time vulnerabilities, even when attackers are in action and moving laterally across your environments.


Prevent identity risks and detect real-time identity threats with automated remediation


Proofpoint Spotlight helps automatically prevent identity threats and detect lateral movements.

When attackers first land on a host, it’s very rarely their end target. This means they need to escalate privilege and move laterally to achieve their objectives. It’s fast, easy, and effective for them to exploit privileged credentials. It’s also hard for organisations to detect. With Spotlight, you can detect these privilege escalations and lateral movements across your environments.

Proofpoint Shadow uses modern deception technology to stop attackers before they know it.

If you’re using traditional signatures or behavioural analysis as methods for detection, your security team can be overwhelmed with false positives and alert fatigue. To consistently detect modern cyber attacks, you need deceptive technology techniques that give you high-fidelity detection of privilege escalations and lateral movement. Unlike traditional approaches, Proofpoint Shadow uses agentless methods to actively engage attackers in your production environment for the sole purpose of detecting their existence.
