Our new StrongNet solution walkthrough video provides the rationale for enforcing hardware root of trust for strong device identity. In short, the IT industry is experiencing a credential theft epidemic. As detailed in the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, 63% of confirmed data breaches took advantage of weak, default, or stolen passwords. Worse, phishing attacks, which are nearly always successful in tricking at least one user, inevitably result in credential theft.
StrongNet mitigates credential theft by enforcing hardware identity using strong cryptographic keys. This prevents stolen credentials from being used on untrusted hardware. StrongNet also prevents credential theft from occurring in the first place by locking down devices with strong security defenses that start at the computer firmware and extend into the operating system. This approach prevents remote attackers from gaining a foothold on your network, even by way of remote employees or forward-deployed hardware.
