September 05, 2019 — It has been reported that PDF solutions provider Foxit has informed customers that it had recently detected unauthorised access to data associated with its “My Account” service. The company reported that the incident impacted 328,549 users. The compromised data includes names, email addresses, passwords, phone numbers, company names, and IP addresses, but payment information was not exposed.
“For online companies who share customers with Foxit, credentials like passwords are not reliable anymore. To protect customer accounts and company assets, businesses need to make sure they have other authentication technologies like passive biometrics and behavioural analytics that can verify that the right customer is behind the device – by identifying them by their online behaviour.“
