Account Takeover (ATO) Prevention

Account takeover (ATO) is one of the fastest growing threats over email as these originate from trusted sources and have low detection rates. Using behavioral intelligence modeling, powered by machine learning, Tessian detects even the most advanced ATO attacks.

The ATO Challenge

ATO threats pose significant danger to organizations as threat actors use sophisticated impersonation techniques and trusted email accounts to launch attacks that bypass conventional, rule based threat detection tools. While organizations can secure their own email infrastructure, they have no control over their extended network of customers, partners, and suppliers.

The ATO attack chain

ATO Can Lead to Business Email Compromise

ATO is one of the pathways to Business Email Compromise (BEC), which is the biggest cause of email breaches globally.
Sometimes, the ATO attack chain does not end with an individual employee’s credentials being compromised. The attacker might use this account to access the email credentials of other employees within the same organization, especially the C-suite executives to execute a breach.

Detecting email credential theft could take months

One of the biggest challenges before CISOs is to lower their risk exposure by building a proactive security strategy that can anticipate, identify, and prevent potential ATO attempts well ahead of an actual breach.
Most legacy email security tools largely rely on static rules and previously known attack signatures to stop threats. As a result, organizations today learn about these attacks months after they have been breached and have incurred significant damages.
