Lieberman Software Outlines Best Practices for Organizations Facing Advanced Persistent Threats
(Los Angeles, CA – July 29, 2014) With a porous network perimeter, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) like pass-the-hash, dependence on IT contractors, ineffective firewalls and anti-malware tools, and the understanding that intruders are likely already within most IT environments – what are the best practices to minimize persistent unauthorized access?
At Black Hat USA 2014, Philip Lieberman, noted cybersecurity expert and president of Lieberman Software Corporation, will discuss how privileged identity management and privileged access management offers Just In Time Access to minimize lateral motion on the network, time limit the value of credentials, and restrict the scope of access to only authorized users.
The session, titled “Just In Time Access via Privilege Management” will be presented on Wednesday, August 6. Lieberman Software is a Platinum Sponsor of Black Hat USA and will demonstrate its privilege management technology in Booth 511 at the conference, being held August 2-7 in Las Vegas.
Automation of Credential Management Key to Surviving Cyber Attacks
“As more and more security breaches are being uncovered in large enterprises, organizations should take a much more stringent approach to securing privileged access,” Lieberman said. “In order to improve security against today’s advanced nation-state attacks and APTs, privileged account passwords should be automatically audited and updated on a daily, or even hourly, basis. If these credentials are only changed on a monthly, quarterly or annual frequency, think about the damage a cybercriminal can do in that time with unlimited access into an organization’s critical systems? They could easily access and extract highly sensitive data at will.”
Lieberman Software’s Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) is a privilege management platform that automatically detects, secures and audits privileged accounts throughout the cross-platform enterprise, both on-premises and in the cloud. It ensures that privileged identities are only available on a temporary, audited basis to prevent unauthorized and anonymous access to systems with sensitive data. With ERPM, even if an attack manages to obtain user names and passwords, they cannot be used to leapfrog from system to system within the environment.
