Shift your web security to the Cloud, for the Cloud

Locking down privileged accounts is a basic security tenet and a priority for servers. Unfortunately, in many organisations, the same level of concern and control is rarely applied to workstations. Yet for many years, individual desktops/laptops have contained as much sensitive information as servers.

‘Driven by the promise of cost savings, speed, and scalability, enterprise cloud adoption is surging forward. These types of IT environments have become the rule, and they have brought with them new levels of complexity — not the least of which involve ensuring security.

The numbers of internet-facing RDP servers and VPN devices have both grown very quickly—over 30%—in the past month, and Microsoft Teams usage has exploded. Whether it’s relaxing security policies so that employees can work on files, emails, and apps from home, or removing strict requirements around VPN, many business continuity efforts can introduce massive risk.’

In 2020, more people are working remotely from unsecured devices and networks, using applications like Office 365 and Teams to collaborate. Security is taking a back seat to business continuity and attacks are surging exponentially.

Netskope | 5 Reasons to Choose Cloud Security for Remote Workers

‘Many organizations struggle with providing adequate security for remote workers, and are increasingly challenged by remote access requirements in today’s cloud-first world.

Okta | Identity as a Service, for Dummies - Okta Special Edition

As a business expands and scales, it adapts with applications to streamline its network and operations. Where an employee may have once had one login and password, IT now manages hundreds of credentials for on-premises and Software as a Service (SaaS) apps, running on different platforms and multiple devices.

Likewise, many businesses now offer online products and services that require their customers to log in to a secure account. Thus, IT must now manage millions of credentials for the business’s customers globally.

Centrify | Centrify Zero Trust Privilege for Dummies

To better protect against data breaches, the use of a Zero Trust model has returned to the spotlight and seen
huge growth in adoption. Instead of using the traditional approach of “trust, but verify,” the Zero Trust model implements “never trust, always verify” as its guiding principle.

Okta | The State of Zero Trust Security in Global Organizations

‘There’s no denying that, among information security watchers, zero trust has gone well beyond buzzword status. The oft-discussed security framework, originally developed by Forrester Research analyst Jon Kindervag in 2009, threw away the idea that organizations should have a “trusted” internal network and an “untrusted” external network. To meet the access and usability demands of modern employees and consumers (and avoid becoming the next organization in the headlines for a data breach), companies are moving towards a more robust and comprehensive security posture that’s centered around the zero trust principle of “never trust, always verify.”’

Varonis | 7 Best Practices for Data Security in Office 365 and Beyond

We are in the midst of a global shift from purely on-premises IT infrastructure to hybrid environments.
Office 365 is dominating the cloud, yet its native security is lacking unified controls required to protect the billions of sensitive files that flow between internal storage and the cloud.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) leaders are finding themselves tasked with a broader range of security and risk management requirements, as digital transformation reshapes the fabric of the modern IT estate. Our understanding is that this 2019 Gartner report, “IAM Leaders’ Guide to Privileged Access Management,” outlines the difference between Access Management, Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), and PAM. The report highlights where PAM can help organizations provide secure access to critical assets for privileged users, and meet compliance requirements related to securing, managing, and monitoring privileged accounts.

Netskope | 20 Examples of Smart Cloud Security

The way people work has changed. Driven by the increasing use of cloud services and mobile devices, people now expect to be able to work at any time, from any place, and on any device. These changes are dramatically altering the network and security infrastructure in many organisations. Rather than staying with a legacy, hub-and-spoke network architecture, with offices interconnected over costly, dedicated links and remote users accessing centralised resources over VPN, more organisations are moving to a direct-to-web and direct-to-cloud model.

Netskope | Shift your web security to the Cloud, for the Cloud

Netskope’s Whitepaper discusses Web Security in the Digital Age and how Enterprises today are faced with the daunting challenge of seamlessly securing critical data traversing the network to access SaaS apps, IaaS, and the web from any endpoint.
