Protect PeopleSoft Data from Phishing Attacks

Strengthen identity and access management controls

81% of hacking attacks involve stolen credentials. After gaining access to a user’s login info, hackers can move freely inside your PeopleSoft systems. As a result, sensitive information such as social security and direct deposit account numbers are exposed. This threat becomes far greater if the intruder obtains a high-privilege user’s credential.

Moreover, PeopleSoft solely relies on a Username and Password security model. As such, securing PeopleSoft can be challenging as hackers target users with increasing levels of sophistication.

High Privilege Misuse

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
