The company will showcase its cloud-ready Zero Trust Privilege Services and advocate how Zero Trust mandates a “never trust, always verify, enforce least privilege” approach to privileged access, from inside or outside the network.
“The leading cause of most data breaches today is privileged access abuse. Cyber-attackers don’t hack in anymore — they’re logging in using weak, default, stolen, or otherwise compromised credentials, and then are moving laterally across the network to gain further privileged access to steal data while covering their tracks. Analysis of recent breaches highlights the fact that most organizations are still not prepared to protect themselves against identitybased threats. Cyber-attacks will only grow in virulence and volume until they truly prioritize Privileged Access Management. At GITEX 2019, Centrify plans to show visitors how their organizations can significantly strengthen their security posture and greatly reduce the risk of a breach by controlling privileged access and minimizing the attack surface,” says Andy Heather, General Manager EMEA, Centrify.
