Centralised access opens doors for infections
For years, centralized and privileged access has paved the way for cyber-pandemics. Set up to be fast and convenient, they give a blanket access to users – and hackers – once through a main gate to all other systems. This approach facilitates lateral movement and creates the perfect launchpad for supply-chain and ransomware attacks.
If this sounds familiar, it is because that is how COVID-19 spreads: when you put everyone in the same room, if one person has COVID, the virus will quickly infect others too.
