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 are able to slip through existing defenses. And they can complete their attacks in a matter of days. But Proofpoint can help. With the Proofpoint Identity Threat Defense family of solutions, you get the identity threat protection and response you need to defend against these attacks. These solutions continuously discover and remediate 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 organizations to detect. With Spotlight, you can detect these privilege escalations and lateral movements across your environments.
