It gets worse, not better …
There is no denying that the Cloud offers interesting opportunities for organizations to improve their management of IT.
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.
“… the move to a cloud environment expands the circle of potential insiders to the CSP staff and subcontractors, and also other customers using the service.” – US DHS
A 2018 US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) study states –
“Clever and cunning as ever, malicious hackers are aiming at the “weak links” – i.e. MSSPs, MSP and CSPs – to get to their customers …
Threat actors appear to be leveraging stolen administrative credentials …
Depending on the defensive mitigations in place, the threat actor could possibly gain full access to networks and data in a way that appears legitimate to existing monitoring tools.”
Department of Homeland Security, October 2018
Your best option is to maintain control of your data security, whether that’s for data residing in your network or in the Cloud. Cord3’s solutions lets you do exactly that. You’re in control – not your Cloud vendor and not your MSP.
With Cord3, CSPs cannot see any of your data. Your data is protected by strong encryption and you are in control, not your CSP.
And since you’re not dependent on a CSP for data security, you can move to another CSP whenever you want or have multiple Cloud vendors providing services for you. You’re free … because you’re in control. And you also control the policies that drive your regulatory compliance.
Cord3 works completely transparently to users and applications. So, unlike other approaches to data security, being “in control” with Cord3 is easy.
Cord3 separates data security from CSPs and that’s why Cord3 can Stop Privileged Credential Abuse from threat actors leveraging CSPs (and MSPs) to access your data. Separate to Elevate.
