"Recently I spoke with an analyst who, when I mentioned the idea that we could take a sandboxing platform like FireEye and hook it up to an automated response, recoiled saying that would make him and most customers he speaks with very nervous. They have tried doing things like DNS shutdown and other malware remediation steps and have been burned as production work ground to a halt. However he immediately saw the difference when I walked him through the idea of simply rotating credentials at the point in time of an active attack as a response, a response that would cut off the attacker’s access to the privilege needed to succeed without effecting legitimate users who were already going through a process to gain access to privilege on demand."
