The SpyCloud Difference

SpyCloud provides the earliest detection of potentially compromised accounts – those using credentials that have appeared in a third-party breach and are therefore at risk of account takeover. And we automate the remediation of exposed passwords, enabling enterprises to lock down accounts quickly, before damage is done. 

Our goal is to help organizations to protect themselves from criminal activity and disrupt criminals’ ability to profit from stolen data.

Targeted vs. Automated Account Takeover Attacks

WHITEPAPER

Targeted vs. Automated
Account Takeover Attacks

Account takeover (ATO) occurs when criminals use stolen logins to access user accounts without permission–typically credentials that have been exposed in a third-party breach. Using victims’ accounts, criminals can make fraudulent purchases, drain accounts, steal sensitive data, or move laterally within a target organization.

The vast majority of account takeover attempts are automated credential-stuffing attacks. However, SpyCloud customers report that 80 percent of losses come from just 10 percent of ATO attempts, which are highly targeted and challenging to detect.

Read this whitepaper to learn:

  • The differences between targeted and automated account takeover attacks and why targeted attacks can cause so much damage
  • The five phases of an account takeover attack and the tactics, techniques, and procedures cybercriminals throughout the attack timeline
  • How early detection can help you prevent both targeted and automated account takeover
Solution: Account Takeover Prevention

Reset stolen passwords before criminals can use them to defraud your users or access sensitive corporate data.
