Solution Brief


Privileged identities are the No. 1 vector for ransomware and other targeted cyber attacks. Cyber attackers have been shifting their focus from system to identity-based attacks, such as account takeover attacks (ATOs). This has led to a global increase in cyber attacks, which often go undetected, leaving no indicators of compromise or evidence of malware. And despite the deployment of privileged account management (PAM) and multifactor authentication (MFA), one in six enterprise endpoints include vulnerable identities. Illusive (now part of Proofpoint) Spotlight can help. It automatically discovers and remediates identity vulnerabilities before attackers exploit them. It prevents attacks by taking away what attackers need to complete their crime: privileged account access.
