Insurance Industry Security Solutions

Enhance your organization’s security architecture to defend, detect, and respond to ransomware and advanced threats targeting insurance companies.


The insurance industry is a top target due to the critical and sensitive client data stored. Attackers focus their efforts on this sensitive information for financial gain, both in the attack moment and for subsequent attack plans.

Financially-motivated threat actors seek credentials as the first stage of their attack approach. Attackers focus on compromising credentials since they provide the means to commit ransomware attacks, install malware and move laterally throughout the network once they establish a foothold.

To effectively address the onslaught of ransomware, compromised credentials, advanced threats, and theft of personal records and other sensitive information, insurance companies are looking for a more comprehensive approach to strengthen their security posture.  These organizations are actively turning to Attivo Networks® solutions to detect and derail these attacks with identity protection and prevention against privilege escalation and lateral movement activities.
