Despite the explosive growth in API usage worldwide, many security and development teams are unable to answer basic questions about their API programs – like how many do we have, who owns them, and what do they do. This poses a huge security risk for organizations – especially in today’s complicated threat landscape. To protect against security risks, it’s crucial that organizations understand all aspects of their API programs and their associated security challenges. This better positions leaders to improve their organization’s security posture through proper mitigation strategies.
Today's complex computing environments are rife with vulnerabilities. Keeping your organizational data safe requires employing today's best data security practice: adopting the premise that identity and access management provide the new and true security perimeter. Powerful identity and access management (IAM) models of public cloud providers enable the deployment of applications and data with far greater protection than what is possible in traditional cloud security. However, these cloud provider IAM solutions are not without risk when misused.
Enterprises are grappling with increased complexity as cloud adoption increases, the perimeter expands, and digital transformation projects take hold. The accelerated shift to remote working has only added to the complexity. As more businesses leverage hybrid IT environments in their digital transformation journey, many confront challenges managing identities and access across multiple applications, clouds, networks and servers.

And is their current security strategy adequate? To find out, we talk to Kory Patrick, Risk & Security Solution Executive at TEKsystems.
The battle for G4S, which might reach fruition this month, has been waged over a period of nearly three months and has numerous implications going forward for the companies involved and the guarding industry on the whole. If the acquisition moves forward, it would effectively cement Allied as, by far, the largest global security company. Based on revenue, Allied would be approximately 40% larger than its nearest competitor, Securitas. The approximate revenues for Allied from the G4S acquisition would total more than $18 billion, including any non-core services.
For years, just about every update of consumer cloud applications would include new features that the user could configure around their personal taste, convenience, and preferred uses. Over time, and with increasing features and capabilities, what had begun as an application’s simple settings, was replaced by a proliferation of tabs, cascading drop-down menus, banners, breadcrumbs, hyperlinks, bookmarks, and more, creating a world of choices and individual styles.
As the United States continues to struggle amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies have been searching for creative solutions to help stop the spread of this virus. One of these solutions includes thermal temperature screening checker systems, and while these systems have been implemented in many places of business, hospitals, airports and schools across the country, there seems to be considerable misconceptions about the camera technology and its effectiveness. Here are some of the most common misconceptions.
