PingOne Risk is an easy-to-implement cloud service that helps your organization make smarter authentication decisions using machine learning and analytics to detect malicious activity. By analyzing multiple risk signals, PingOne Risk can identify anomalous activity to block attacks or require strong authentication methods, providing a greater level of assurance of your users’ identities.
Evaluate Risk Signals to Detect Malicious Activity
User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) takes advantage of machine-learning models to detect abnormalities in authentication behavior. Using UEBA in PingOne Risk allows your organization to look at many different data points, including device type, operating system, browser version, date and time, to determine if this behavior is anomalous for a user in your organization.
Bad actors often use anonymous networks such as unknown VPNs, TOR and proxies to mask their IP addresses to gain access to resources. With PingOne Risk, your organization can analyze user IP addresses and determine if the address is from an anonymous network and if step-authentication is required.
Bad actors can reuse IP addresses multiple times to execute DDoS attacks or engage in spamming activity. A user attempting to access resources from an IP address that’s connected to previous suspicious activity indicates a higher probability of risk. PingOne Risk analyzes the IP address of the user to determine any involvement in malicious activity.
It’s not uncommon for users to sign on to systems from multiple locations during the day. However, it could be a strong indication of suspicious activity if the time between signing on from different locations is logistically impossible. With PingOne Risk, your organization can analyze the location data of where users sign on to determine if the time lapse between sign-on locations is possible.
Secure Authentications with Deep Insights
Understanding where risk is inside your organization can help you make the right authentication decisions to increase your security posture. Use the dashboards provided with PingOne Risk to gain deep insights, such as what and where are the most common risk factors in an organization, into authentication patterns, and access reports on high-risk activities help investigate potential threats.
