81% of hacking attacks involve stolen credentials. Once a valid credential is obtained, a hacker is free to roam in your PeopleSoft systems, taking their time to steal personally identifiable information, install malware, or alter direct deposit account information to re-direct paychecks/bonuses. This threat becomes far greater if the intruder is able to obtain a high-privilege user’s credential.
Why is phishing such a problem? Because it works! Phishing/Spear Phishing attacks are the leading case of breaches. These attacks are sophisticated, meticulously planned, and strategically executed leaving you little time to react
Hackers can crack the encryption key of the PS_TOKEN in order to bypass the authentication process
PeopleSoft does not provide control over what functionality is available on your secure network vs. the open internet. Privilege is determined by role, not by how and where the system is being accessed
After successful authentication, a high-privilege credential can be misused to run reports/queries. This is why privilege misuse from insiders can be very costly and why high-privilege credentials are the most coveted by hackers
Appsian solutions for identity and access management deliver stronger password controls by allowing you to leverage your current identity provider to manage and streamline the authentication process. Once authenticated with your identity provider, users are granted single sign-on access throughout your PeopleSoft applications. Do away with multiple, weak passwords that are easy to crack!
Appsian partners with multiple MFA providers to embed MFA functionality within the PeopleSoft system at the field/page/component level. Appsian’s MFA solution leverages a robust rules engine that contextually determines when an additional authentication challenge is required
Appsian leverages the principle of least privilege, giving you the ability to customize your users’ experience based on the network (secure vs. unfamiliar) they are requesting access from. Whether limiting access to specific PeopleSoft transactions or downgrading privilege to a specific credential – Appsian gives you full control to determine what your users do when they access PeopleSoft outside your secure network
