Theft and abuse of stolen passwords is one of the oldest attacks in the book, yet it remains highly effective.

You can prevent credential theft with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform by stopping credential leakage, blocking access to phishing sites and enforcing multi-factor authentication security policy in the network.
