Endpoint compromises are happening at a relentless pace, leading to significant ransomware demands and business disruption. Organizations must stop stage 2 post compromise attack activity quickly, which requires reliable prevention and detection of attacker in-network lateral movement and privilege escalation activities.

Derailing lateral movement centers on preventing cybercriminals from seeing and accessing local file and account information that can lead to data theft or destruction. The Attivo Networks endpoint-based DataCloak function prevents attackers from finding and accessing critical data and exploiting local files, accounts, and storage locations. Credential and Active Directory object cloaking also serve to restrict credential theft and misuse, while binding credentials to applications prevents unauthorized access. By denying attackers the ability to see or exploit critical data, organizations can efficiently disrupt discovery and lateral movement activities, and drastically reduce the risk of a successful ransomware or other destructive attack.

“54% of the techniques and tactics used to execute testing of lateral movement were missed.”
