How to Find Inactive Users

Oort’s Head of Solutions Engineering, Andy Winiarski, takes you on a quick video tour of Oort’s exclusive Identity Security Checks.

In this quick video, we’ll explore the check for Inactive Users.

Inactive Users Are Risky

Whether internal or external, third-party or organization-employed, inactive users pose a serious threat to organizations. Why? Because identities that are critical to your organization rarely sit unused or inactive for more than 30 days. If they’re not being used, there’s a good chance they’ve been forgotten or lost. Moreover, inactive identities are hard to discover, and when they start to pile up, they aggregate risk to your organization and provide unnecessary attack surface that is ripe for account takeover and subsequent abuse.

Let’s hear Andy explain how inactive users are a problem for every enterprise:
