Pentera Partners with SpyCloud to Eliminate the Threat of Exposed Credentials

Pentera operationalizes SpyCloud’s 500+ billion recaptured assets to validate identity risk exposure and reduce dwell time of compromised credentials

BOSTON – Feb. 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – Pentera, the leader in Automated Security Validation, today announced an integration with SpyCloud, the leader in Cybercrime Analytics, to automate the discovery and validation of compromised identities. Pentera uses exposure intelligence data to identify exploitable identities and facilitates targeted remediation to proactively reduce risk.

Compromised credentials remain one of the most pervasive and successful attack vectors year over year. According to the 2023 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) stolen credentials were the root cause of almost 50% of all attacks, and provided initial access in 86% of all Web Application based attacks.

“The scale of leaked credentials available on the darknet is growing daily, and companies are struggling to maintain password hygiene as well as users’ identity and access security. Our Credential Exposure module leverages SpyCloud’s vast repository of recaptured assets to provide organizations with real-time visibility of their risk exposure from leaked credentials and a clear roadmap to remediation.”

Ran Tamir, Chief Product Officer at Pentera

“The combination of Pentera’s automated penetration testing and SpyCloud’s data gives organizations a fast path to identify and prioritize exploitable threats from compromised credentials. This integration delivers significant reduction in the risk posed by identity-driven cyberattacks.

Cassio Mello, SVP of Business Development at SpyCloud

Pentera employs SpyCloud’s recaptured identity data to:

  • Test networks via Internet-facing interfaces
  • Validate against internal and external web applications
  • Match leaked credentials against Active Directory active entries

Pentera’s Credential Exposure module automates penetration tests on both hashed and cleartext credentials across the internal and external attack surfaces. Security teams can run Pentera tests on-demand, exposing the real-world impact of compromised credentials by mapping complete attack paths that impact systems, users, and applications. Based on the findings, security teams can define actions and automated workflows to retire such credentials in parallel with implementing additional authentication controls. This immediate and targeted action reduces the time-to-remediation and removes critical identity threat exposures.
