A recent press release reports, “Preempt, a leader in adaptive threat prevention that helps enterprises eliminate security breaches and internal threats, today announced the expansion of its product suite with the introduction of the Preempt Platform. According to Verizon’s 2017 DBIR, 25 percent of breaches involved internal actors and 81 percent of hacking-related breaches were aided by stolen or weak passwords. The Preempt Platform helps security teams who are struggling to balance the threat of cyberattacks, breaches and internal threats without disrupting business or overloading analysts with false positives. The Preempt Platform can progressively adapt based on situation and context and automatically challenge anomalous behavior and resolve false positives in real-time.”
The release goes on. “Preempt continuously tracks the identity, behavior and risk of every enterprise user and adapts responses based on risk. Real-time insights are paired with business-appropriate responses that can adapt as situations change. Anomalous or risky behaviors can be challenged or redirected without disrupting user productivity. If risks increase, the solution can challenge users to verify their identity, reduce user privileges, force password changes, or ultimately block based on customizable policies. By allowing security to adapt in real time, organizations can quickly solve a variety of security challenges such as being able to automatically respond in real-time to anomalous or risky behavior, proactively add secure access control, manage and protect privileged and service accounts and resolve risk and weaknesses before they are exploited by attackers. This flexibility opens up a variety of use-cases and also allows organizations to leverage existing security solutions in new ways.”
