Intel 471’s Credential Intelligence is concentrated on the expedited identification and repatriation of an organization’s compromised credentials, such as usernames and passwords, in order to minimize risks. Credential Intelligence also helps to assess and mitigate the risk of compromised credentials associated with third-party vendors and suppliers.
Since employees and customers are often required to create and manage a number of accounts and passwords in both personal and professional settings, it is common for passwords to be reused. This scenario magnifies and multiplies the risks when credentials are compromised. Cyber threats such as Account Takeovers (ATO), Business Email Compromise (BEC), malware, database breaches, leaks and other security and fraud issues are an inevitable reality that cannot be completely prevented. Organizations must take responsibility for monitoring the exposure of their credentials across the marketplace. However, at the same time, it is unreasonable – and virtually impossible – for an organization to manually monitor for malicious activity and be expected to mitigate the risk should an incident occur.
Credential Intelligence is a proactive solution that provides simple integration into workflows or tools, allowing organizations to automatically monitor, identify and take action, as well as alert employees, vendors and other third parties associated with their brand if a risk is present. Intel 471’s Credential Intelligence enables organizations to easily and effectively recognize and tackle any security problem associated with compromised credentials exposed in the cybercrime marketplace.
