Cord3 solves the most difficult challenge in data security – protecting data from administrator accounts with high privilege! Read this brief intro for a quick understanding.
Every organization faces the threat of administrators (and hackers with administrator credentials) using their high privilege accounts to access sensitive data.
This is especially risky when outsourcing to MSSPs that have full system and data access as privileged administrators. Because of their access to privileged administrator accounts for many customers, MSSPs have become the most targeted entities for cybersecurity attacks.
Cord3 protects data from MSSPs and other privileged administrators, so organizations no longer have to trust MSSPs or their internal IT and application administrators with access to sensitive data.
Cord3 transparently encrypts data using keys inaccessible to administrators, users, and applications, and then checks every time to see whether or not the user is authorized to access data – a “zero-trust for data” approach.
With Cord3, administrator system access no longer equals data access, greatly reducing the risk of using MSSPs. Learn more!
A recent Forbes article states – “The bottom line is that investing in securing perimeters leaves the most popular attack vector of all unprotected, which are privileged credentials.” We could not agree more.Some of the solutions proposed in the article, however, do not prevent privileged credential attacks – they just detect attacks, maybe, once they have occurred.
One thing that does not improve when moving to the Cloud (or outsourcing to any MSP) is privileged credential abuse. In fact, when you use the Cloud, the opportunity for privileged credential attacks expands substantially beyond what is available to attackers in the Enterprise – which is bad enough.
“It’s your worst nightmare, and a cyber attacker’s dream come true: the credentials of a privileged user getting stolen or otherwise compromised. After all, privileged users can go practically anywhere and do anything in your network as they go about the business of configuring servers and systems and setting security policies.” CSO Online, January 2018
Privileged credential abuse has been traditionally difficult to detect and stop because data security is tightly integrated into applications and applications grant unrestricted access to privileged credential users, including access to sensitive data. Cord3 separates data security from applications. This separation of data security from applications enables two critical capabilities for protecting sensitive data against privileged credential abuse.
