The credential has become a commodity that will be breached. 74% of breached organizations admitted the breach involved access to a privileged account. In addition, The Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that out of all attacks, 29% of total breaches involved the use of stolen credentials, second only to phishing. Once a credential is compromised, privileged access management solutions are rendered useless.
The underlying reason behind this (and why administrator credentials continue to be low hanging fruit for attackers) is the access the credentials provide. Specifically, it is the 24x7x365 always on, high levels of access that these administrator credentials provide that can be used to move laterally across a network, steal sensitive data, or deploy ransomware.
In addition, weaponized administrator rights can bypass traditional Endpoint Security, EDR and PAM solutions. Specifically,
