Demo Tuesday: Identity Protection
Learn how CrowdStrike identity security improves your tech stack
While companies have embraced more endpoint and multifactor authentication (MFA) solutions in their security architecture, they don’t always see incidents as they happen — especially those involving service accounts and lateral movement. Recent attacks targeting identity and supply chain automation have made it clear that the next level of preparedness and risk mitigation must include reviewing and strengthening identity security tools.
“Defense in depth” means finding the right controls from the endpoint all the way to the domain controller, but most security stacks are missing identity controls beyond an MFA checkbox. In addition, Golden SAML attacks such as those seen in Sunburst show that MFA isn’t a silver bullet, either. Good security requires not only automated responses to threats as they arise, but also deterministic threat detection (i.e., signature matching) and behavior anomaly detection (i.e., user/credential live actions). Our experts will demonstrate CrowdStrike Falcon® identity protection products that achieve both.
