  2. Countering the Attack: How Zero Trust is Pushing Back Against New Cyberthreats

  3. Why You Must Protect Your Digital Identity at All Costs

    Identities are under attack from all sides. The risk surface is increasing exponentially, and threat actors are endlessly inventing more sophisticated and nefarious means for identity-based attacks. At the same time, digital identities are becoming more complex. Each identity can—and does—have multiple accounts, credentials, entitlements, rights, and privileges. While some accounts may be more secure…

  4. Best Practice: Enabling Visibility as Part of Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management (CIEM)

    Today’s modern enterprises rely heavily on cloud infrastructure, and permissions are essentially the backbone of access to cloud based resources. To effectively manage entitlements – access to your organization’s resources such as sensitive data and mission critical assets – the core proficiencies you need are: access to an inventory of all your cloud identities and…

  5. Beyond Best Practices TWG Brings New Insights and Also… Sharks?

    As we celebrate the first-ever Identity Management Day, I had a chance to reflect on the Beyond Best Practices Technical Working Group’s contributions over the past year, and one word came to mind: Creativity.

  7. Managing Non-Human Identities for Vendor Access and Least Privilege Application Management

    While often overlooked, machine identities outnumber the human identities enterprises need to manage and protect. Their prevalence, coupled with the challenges of managing digital certificates and their sometimes, short-lived nature, creates potential gaps in visibility and control that skilled threat actors will eagerly look to exploit. Just like human identities, machine identities are at risk….

  8. The Unique Challenges of Customer Identity and Access Management

    As the world faced quarantines, stay at home orders and shuttered businesses, even normally reluctant consumers were forced to go online to grocery shop, order take-out and stay connected to friends and family. This focus on transacting daily tasks on-line placed a major spotlight on an emerging subset of identity security, customer identity and access…

  9. Identity-Centric Security: 10 Data Points from 10 Different Vendors (and a book) Make the Case

    There’s almost universal consensus that perimeter-centric security is insufficient for today’s distributed IT environments. But where debate amongst IT pros and vendors now rages is whether the optimal enterprise security approach today is application-centric, data-centric, or identity-centric. Data-centric and application-centric approaches have merit, but each can be undermined simply by the wrong identity accessing data,…
