Government Investigations of a Breach: When Machine Identity Protection Fails

What was the biggest breach in 2017? How did it happen? Regulators in the U.S. and U.K. have released a detailed analysis, highlighting how a failure in Machine Identity Protection enabled this complex, lengthy, hidden attack.

A single untracked, unmanaged digital certificate was left to expire and became the foundation of this attack. Certificates authenticate machine identities for trusted machine-to-machine connections and, when compromised, create a gaping hole in an otherwise well-layered defense. 

Join this webinar and learn how cybercriminals: 

• Use an expired certificate to hide in encrypted traffic
• Exploit additional vulnerabilities and pivot deeper into the network
• Continue their attack for months and pilfer millions of files

Today, well over half of attacks hide in encrypted traffic—and analysts warn that this will only increase. Learn how to defend against these types of attacks and architect effective machine identity protection for your organization. Register now!
