‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’ for Access Control

960 640 Guest Post

Leonardo DaVinci’s philosophy in the headline has never rung so true as it does today in IT – especially when we’re talking about providing users secure access in our perimeterless world.

If your access approach is wrong, your risk of being hacked ramps up exponentially. Counterintuitively, installing more security solutions can make access less – not more – secure. Each different access solution, each port opened to the outside world, increases your attack surface.

That’s where a Zero Trust Access Control approach helps paint your own sophisticated, yet simple, security masterpiece. For instance, Total Access Control (TAC) offers single sign-on to a central portal that gives users seamless, secure access to resources they need to do their jobs – and only those resources.

With TAC, you can inspect every connection to evaluate a user’s full context – including robust endpoint inspection, credentials verification, device validation, location of the user and more – prior to granting access to any resources, local or cloud. In addition, each connection to each resource through TAC must first pass the security policies you set – and not those set by some third party such as a cloud provider – before that access is granted.

With TAC’s microsegmentation, users are granted access only to the specific resources they are authorized to access, effectively making users captive within the application resources – rather than gaining access to your entire network infrastructure. Each resource can also have its own rules for access – an advanced level of microsegmentation that allows for variable or even partial secure access to resources, based on the user’s context of access for each request.

TAC makes the lives of end users and administrators alike much simpler, so they can focus on doing their jobs instead of trying to remember what password works where for which application. Along the way, your security becomes much more sophisticated in its ability to close the gaps across your infrastructure and keep hackers out.

That’s an IT security masterpiece Leonardo DaVinci would be proud to paint.

WEBINAR: Top 5 reasons why you need an access management solution

960 640 Guest Post

By Tenfold Security

Do you know WHO in your organization has access to WHAT systems and data? If you don’t know the answer, chances are you haven’t yet employed an IAM solution. And that means your company is at high risk for data theft.

You might be struggling to invest the administrative efforts required to manage access rights, both in terms of time and resources. And perhaps you’re finding it difficult to adhere to compliance regulations.

What you need in order to solve these problems is an “Identity & Access Management Solution”. IAM software enables you to manage IT users and access rights for different systems from within one central platform.

In this webinar, we will cover the Top 5 Reasons why you should get an IAM solution. We will outline how IAM can protect your business against data abuse and theft and how it can help you stay on top of compliance provisions.

Identity Access Management vs. Access Rights Management – What’s the Difference?

615 410 Guest Post

The terms access management (short: AM; also referred to as access rights management or just rights management) and identity & access management (short: IAM) are often used synonymously. In practice, however, they do not stand for the same thing. In this article, we are going to take a closer look at the difference between access rights management software and identity/access management solutions.

Check out the article at https://www.tenfold-security.com/en/identity-access-management-vs-permission-management-whats-the-difference/

If you are looking to secure data access in your organization by:

  • Getting more visibility out of your Active Directory environment
  • Want to manage file server access rights in a best practice compliant way
  • Want to automate your user lifecycle tasks
  • Let users request access and have your business owners approve requests
  • Achieve compliance for need-to-know permissions

69% of SAP users: projects do not prioritise IT security

960 640 Stuart O'Brien

More than two thirds (68.8%) of SAP users believe their organisations put insufficient focus on IT security during previous SAP implementations, while 53.4% indicated that it is ‘very common’ for SAP security flaws to be uncovered during the audit process.

That’s according to the SAP Security Research Report by risk management consultancy, Turnkey Consulting, which also uncovered that most respondents were not fully equipped to manage risk. A fifth (20.8%) felt most businesses did not have the skills and tools to effectively secure their SAP applications and environment, with 64.3% saying they only had some skills and tools.

Looking at specific concerns, nine out of ten (93.2%) people thought it was likely that an SAP audit would flag Access Management issues. Privileged or emergency Access was also a major concern with 86.4% believing it was common or very common to have audit findings specifically related to it.

However, the research also showed a growing awareness of the security challenges faced by today’s enterprise, with the adoption of ‘security by design’ regarded as a solution. 74.0% expect IT security to take greater priority in future SAP deployments, with 89.6% agreeing that security specialists should be brought on board to support their SAP S/4 HANA transformation programmes.

Richard Hunt, managing director at Turnkey Consulting, said: “The findings of this survey mirror our day-to-day experiences; SAP security is often an afterthought on SAP deployments, with the result that not enough time and resource is allocated to the essential security activities that need to take place throughout the project.”

“However it is encouraging to see that boardroom awareness is growing as the general business environment becomes increasingly focused on compliance, data protection and cyber security. This understanding will drive organisations to take the critical step of designing security into implementations from day one.”

Turnkey says it undertook its inaugural SAP research to determine organisations’ preparedness as the SAP landscape undergoes a time of transition and the deadline to adopt SAP S/4 HANA approaches. The SAP ERP offers extensive user benefits in terms of increased interconnectivity and mobility, but risks leaving SAP applications and infrastructure open to exploitation.

Hunt concluded: “Rolling out SAP S/4 HANA requires significant investment and organisational commitment. This reinforces why building in security from the start is vital if remediation, which is costly from both a financial perspective as well as in terms of business disruption, is to be avoided further down the line.”
