Cybersecurity company Circle Security has emerged from stealth with the release of a new platform “purpose-built” to protect against credential-driven threats and cloud attacks. Powered by a decentralized architecture, Circle is available as a device-native service, a mobile app, a browser-based solution, and via a developer-focused API, according to the firm.
Circle Security boasts an impressive advisory board featuring several high-profile cybersecurity thought leaders including Bruce Schneier, Lucia Milica, global CISO of Proofpoint, and Eric Liebowitz, CISO of Thales Group.
Credential-driven data breaches are the biggest threat vector for most companies. Cybercriminals are prioritizing stolen credentials for use in attacks, with weak credentials significant contributors to cloud security risks. Meanwhile, access brokers – criminal groups that sell stolen access credentials – have become a key component of the eCrime threat landscape.
