To increase the efficiency and effectiveness protective measures, organizations are maturing their cybersecurity and IAM programs by implementing Zero Trust based controls. Breach notification happens after a data breach and the harm has occurred. By integrating credential-centric threat intelligence during the runtime of IAM controls, organizations can be proactive by automating the detection and remediation of credential-based attacks.
CredVerify™ is a threat intelligence platform that aggregates, processes, and stores billions of credentials recovered from data breaches. CredVerify for Okta checks for leaked credentials through restful API services using the k-anonymity protection model. If a username and password is found to match credentials discovered in previous data breaches or the dark web, authentication will be interrupted, and the user will be sent to identity verification and a password reset flows. The CredVerify solution was built with privacy and security by design, making the data usable only within the intended context.

“In a world where nearly half of all logins are attempts at credential stuffing, it is difficult to distinguish real users from cyber criminals,” said Stan Bounev, Founder and CEO of VeriClouds. “By integrating CredVerify with Okta authentication, Okta accounts are protected with analytics and intelligence from more than 20 billion recovered username and password combinations, blocking the use of stolen credentials from being used during logon. Through talking to dozens of partners and customers, I have gained a deep appreciation of the value VeriClouds brings to the table, which is outsourced liability (of handling credentials recovered from breaches) and fully automated protection against account takeover attacks.”
“Prior to VeriClouds, several of my security team relied on Have I Been Pwned (HIBP) which has all the stuff in public breaches,” said John Donovan, former CISO of Malwarebytes. “Using a 3rd party service who are good stewards of more sensitive breach data was important to us to complement our own internal capabilities. That is an area that we did due diligence with VeriClouds.”
VeriClouds will continue to work with Okta to make leveraging CredVerify easier and more effective for businesses and enterprises of all sizes.
