Enemy at the Gates
What executives need to know about the keys to the organization’s front door
Pressure is mounting for organizations to not only detect threats, but to also prevent them — before they can affect critical business processes or sensitive data. These potential threats include enterprise’s brand equity, competitive posture and reputation.
Given the evolving threat landscape, as well as the transformational state of regulations that pertain to data protection, traditional Identity and Access Management (IAM) technologies may no longer suffice. Next-generation IAM solutions built around advanced risk-based authentication techniques have the potential to help companies effectively safeguard critical assets against today’s threats.
To enhance the effectiveness of these new technologies, organizations should consider taking steps to determine what implementation meets their specific requirements. That calls for business and IT leaders to work together to:
- Analyze current IAM capabilities
- Understand the implications of various forms of risk
- Review available options
- Adopt a new approach that lays the foundation for better security
