Gain visibility into identity-based attacks


WithSecure™ Elements Identity Security


Prevent major impact from credential theft

WithSecure Elements Identity Security is an identity threat detection solution. It protects organizations against identity-based attacks by detecting potentially compromised Microsoft Entra ID identities that are used by attackers to access Microsoft 365 or other cloud-based services.

Product overview

Stolen credentials have become the most popular entry point for breaches, and a recent survey revealed that breaches initiated with stolen or compromised credentials took the longest to identify and contain*.

Elements Identity Security allows you to detect identity-based attacks by highlighting potentially compromised user credentials. Credentials are collected through either phishing email campaigns or by baiting administrators to accept non-standard authentication flows into their organization. Elements Identity Security extends your detection capabilities beyond endpoints to cover identities - known as the new target for cyber security attacks.

Once you detect an attack, how do you understand it and what should you do next? All activity detected from a potentially compromised user is aggregated together into a Broad Context Detection™, so that the investigation can easily pivot from one central place within the WithSecure Elements Cloud platform.

Our WithSecure incident response team is seeing an increasing trend in identity-focused attacks. These days, you need to do more than basic security hygiene to protect your IT environments, which often sprawl beyond on-premises. Traditional endpoint detection and response tools cannot provide visibility into identities in the era of remote work and cloud services that can be accessed from anywhere.

“An alarming 90% of organizations reported identity-related incidents.”

“Last year, exploiting identity caused a 71% spike in cyber attacks. Breaches that were initiated with stolen or compromised credentials took the longest to resolve – nearly 11 months.”

Protect your most targeted assets: your users

Identity is the layer between your endpoints, the cloud services, and platforms your organization consumes. Endpoint protection, detection and response capabilities take you along the devices, but you need Elements Identity Security as the next extension to detect use of stolen credentials.

Elements Identity Security detects risky users and sessions when credentials are being used to access Microsoft 365 or other cloud services. These credentials are managed by using Microsoft Entra ID as the most widely used cloud-based identity and access management service.
