Account TakeOver is when a malicious individual takes control of an account to the detriment of its rightful owner. These can be email accounts, a Web application in SaaS mode, internal applications, administrator accounts, etc.
Usually the account TakeOver process is only the first step of malicious activities. The act of breaking into software, a database, or an operating system is often aimed at performing wide and massive attacks.
In most cases, the risk will concern information corruption (modification of little data more or less randomly but with a non-neutral medium / long-term impact), takeover, hacking of sensitive data, etc.
There is a security risk when you have jointly:
Removing source of threat or a threat is hard. You have therefore to play on vulnerability. In case of an account TakeOver, the greatest vulnerability is in static authentication, that is, entering login credentials.
Neomia Pulse, via enhanced authentication, effectively combats this risk and therefore greatly limit the impact.
If the malicious third party aims to corrupt software, a database, etc., at some point they will have to enter information to achieve this.
Neomia Pulse, via reinforced authentication, makes it possible to fight effectively against this risk and therefore to greatly reduce potential corruption.
Its integration, using an API, inside business applications & online platforms, allows to strongly secure the user , which is a guarantee of security and peace of mind, both for organizations and users.
