Solutions to stop credentials-based-attack
Despite the widespread occurance and high profile too many corporations are not doing enough to mitigate the risk of security breaches from password based attacks.

Such an attacker is likely to log in with stolen credentials from an abnormal location at an unusual time. Restricting user's individual access to the network by physical location (workstation or device, IP range, department, floor, building...) and setting usage/connection time limits helps organizations avoid these credentials-based attacks.

In addition by preventing concurrent logins network vulnerability is significantly reduced. This limits users to only one possible connection at any one instant making it impossible for any rogue user to use valid credentials at the same time as their legitimate owner, wherever they are based.

Our solution UserLock ensures unauthorized access is no longer possible for Windows based infrastructures - even when credentials are compromised. It stops malicious users seamlessly using valid credentials.
