What are the challenges you face with governing users and identities?

Over-privileged access

Over-privileged access

Employees often accumulate more access privileges than they need, which can lead to expansive data breaches if their credentials are compromised. At the same time, many employees are using shadow IT, personal devices and the public cloud to store enterprise data and streamline their workloads. While this approach may boost productivity, it could also leave your enterprise open to vulnerabilities.

No-privileged access

No-privileged access

Some vendors are promoting a strict response to over-privileged access, which is highly restrictive and requires repeated authentication or challenges. This “no-privileged access” approach can boost security, but also slow productivity with many hurdles. Waves of restrictions can inspire user revolt and workarounds, as employees ignore strict authentication rules and use shadow IT.

Regulations with bigger bite

Regulations with bigger bite

GDPR is simply the first wave of regulations with actual bite – true sustainability and profitability impacts from the mishandling of sensitive data. Continuous compliance is now a business necessity. Part of this cycle is near real-time visibility, management and reporting on "who" has access to "what" information in your organization.

See how silent security can help thwart an insider threat

If a user is suspected of malicious activity or their credentials are compromised, you must react quickly. By deploying user behavior analytics (UBA) to detect anomalous activity with identity governance and intelligence (IGI) to automatically suspend accounts with shady behavior, you can use an integrated silent security approach to keep workers productive while staying secure.
