Live Webinar: Orkos, root9B's Newest Credential Assessment Product

October 19 or October 23

What are a few of network hackers’ favorite things? Stealing credentials and lateral movement, to name two – tactics that make compromising networks and systems a breeze. 

Remote exploits are rarely seen today; instead, most attackers rely on social engineering – tricking a user into helping them break into a system. Once there, the attacker steals the user's credentials and attempts to move laterally throughout the network, continuing to steal and leverage other credentials until they achieve their goals. There are a lot of products that look at initial exploitation vectors, but what out there is monitoring the risk to credential theft and lateral movement? Virtually nothing. Why? Because this kind of analysis is difficult to do comprehensively and accurately. 

root9B is releasing a new product to directly address this gaping hole in network security auditing. Join Eric Stride and Matthew Weeks as they discuss the importance of credential risk assessment, and as they introduce and demonstrate the use of root9B's unique solution to this problem, Orkos. Orkos provides a comprehensive credential risk assessment, enables system administrators to understand the risks in their network and provides recommendations on how to mitigate those risks. Learn more at 3pm Central on October 19th or 23rd with Eric and Matt.
