Service accounts are used by operating systems and various applications to perform automated background tasks. These accounts, usually unmonitored, own high access rights and are under constant risk of attack and data compromise.
Security personnel rarely have any tools that are designed to continuously monitor service accounts and their activities. When these accounts undergo data compromise, the attacks generally go unnoticed and unreported.
Fortscale’s advanced machine learning and analytics include the capability to identify service accounts and tag them as such. This enables stricter risk monitoring of their corporate resource usage and provides the ability to detect anomalies in their behavior that indicate compromised accounts.
