- Identity and access management.
- Endpoint protection.
- Application (or App) security.
Cyber security has always been on top of minds for organizations, many of which have had to deal with data breaches, ransom attacks, phishing scams and other forms of intrusions. The pandemic has brought that concern into even greater focus.
So far network boundaries of access were relied upon for threat security. The rise in remote workforce and the proliferation of access points means that organizations will need to extend their cyber security priorities beyond protecting their networks.
So far, IAM (Identity Access Management) has been considered as add-on to cyber apps, but not anymore, as a greater number of people opt for work from home or remote locations.
The most important feature of a good IAM solution is usability and consistency. If employees become frustrated because of a cumbersome log-in process or multiple levels of verifications; they will seek workabouts and undermine the very security.
As more devices get into the company’s network, this prolific user endpoints also need data protection and security.
Endpoint protection solutions serve the simple purpose of enabling access while blocking malware. They assist with data encryption and data transfer between many endpoints from a centrally managed system. Also, user-owned devices that are not controlled by the company must have up-to-date operating systems, applications, and web browsers, for reducing the risk of vulnerabilities.
For all Apps, security features must be built-into at the time of app development, while minimizing friction in workflows.
