Identity Protection

When threat actors compromise a user’s account and credentials, they try to take control of that user’s digital identity. If they succeed, they will attempt to exploit even more user accounts. They will seek to escalate their privileges then move laterally across cloud accounts, platforms, applications and network endpoints. At that point they can launch phishing and ransomware attacks, exfiltrate sensitive data and establish persistent access. But with Proofpoint Identity Protection, you can defend against these account takeovers with a solid defense-in-depth approach that covers the entire attack chain.
