Securing diverse and distributed IT environments starts with the identity plane. Modern and evolving security threats are best prevented by securing identity through many layers relying on a Zero Trust model. Zero Trust, by which I mean “trust nothing, verify everything,” can serve as a foundation for the evolution of a modern security perimeter, one virtually drawn around each individual user, from anywhere they log on. By following Zero Trust principles and establishing user identity across devices, programs, and networks, modern enterprises can pursue a security program that is adaptive, contextual, and robust enough to defend against modern threats.
When it comes to most digital initiatives, user experience is a primary focal point. Not only is user experience a critical element in the design process, it also remains pertinent as product evolution keeps pace with business scale. As online interactions have exponentially grown during the pandemic, it has become startlingly clear that seamless and secure user experiences (UX) are necessary for success.
Identity management has become a focal point for enterprise security. With the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and the scramble to support work-from-home employees, the real threat to business data assets, whether in the enterprise or the cloud, has become unsecured remote access.
With 94% of organizations reporting an identity-related breach at some point, getting a solid Identity Governance and Administration initiative off the ground and scaling it is no longer a nice-to-have, but a need-to-have.
Looking ahead to 2021, the pandemic will continue to drive business interactions with consumers online. Customer identity and access management (CIAM) products should see explosive growth as these technologies will be essential for securing digital storefronts and providing enhanced experiences.
The future of business has changed drastically due to the rapid advancement of the remote work era from the pandemic. Here are three key CIAM market trends that security professionals should be aware of as they finalize their 2021 plans.
The results of a global study examining the financial impact of data breaches reveals that the incidents cost companies $3.86 million per breach on average, and that compromised employee accounts were the most expensive root cause.
Identity and access management (IAM) protects the business while keeping employees securely connected, but were organizations prepared for their employees to work from anywhere? LastPass ran a study with IT decision makers, in partnership with IDG, to discover the impacts of remote work to IAM and found that IAM is critical to securing a remote workforce, but almost all organizations have had to adjust their IAM strategy to securely enable employees to work from anywhere.
One of the best-known brands in the realm of electrical and electronic equipment isn’t a manufacturer, a distributor or a dealer. It’s UL, a certification organization that verifies the safety of the products it tests.
M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens, has been recognized by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with a SAFETY Act Designation, acknowledging excellence in gameday security practices.
