Corporate data moves within and outside of the perimeter. More mobility makes it more difficult to see how sensitive information is being accessed and moved into cloud applications. The complexity of combining data protection, encryption, authentication, and identity management solutions makes it difficult to set an Information Protection strategy. The challenge can be solved by thinking of information protection holistically, which allows you to control policies seamlessly, as data moves from on-premises to cloud and mobile devices and everywhere in-between, we believe you can protect your employees and your corporate data differently, in a way that gives you better visibility and control.
Information Security is not only about securing information from unauthorized access. Information Security is basically the practice of preventing unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, inspection, recording or destruction of information. Information can be physical or electronic one. Information can be anything like Your details or we can say your profile on social media, your data in mobile phone, your biometrics etc. Thus Information Security spans so many research areas like Cryptography, Mobile Computing, Cyber Forensics, Online Social Media etc.
Endpoint security has evolved from traditional antivirus software to providing comprehensive protection from sophisticated malware and evolving zero-day threats. Organizations of all sizes are at risk from nation-states, hacktivists, organized crime, and malicious and accidental insider threats. Endpoint security is often seen as cybersecurity’s frontline and represents one of the first places organizations look to secure their enterprise networks.
As the volume and sophistication of cybersecurity threats have steadily grown, so has the need for more advanced endpoint security solutions. Today’s endpoint protection systems are designed to quickly detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress. To do this, they need to collaborate with each other and with other security technologies to give administrators visibility into advanced threats to speed detection and remediation response times.
Users are everywhere and need quick access to data and cloud applications around the clock. In the cloud, on-premises or both, you need to stop inbound and outbound threats targeting your end users, information and key infrastructure. Today’s web & email protection must account for this new reality while balancing security, performance, complexity, and cost. Every organization, regardless of size, industry or infrastructure, requires a degree of network security solutions in place to protect it from the ever-growing landscape of cyber threats in the wild today.
Email is popular with hackers as a tool for spreading malware, spam, and phishing attacks. They use deceptive messages to trick recipients into sharing sensitive information, resulting in identity theft. They lure people into opening attachments or clicking hyperlinks that install malware (such as email viruses) on the user’s device. Email is also a main entry point for attackers looking to access an enterprise network and breach valuable company data.
Application delivery controllers, and load balancing in general, are often seen as solutions waiting for a problem to solve. We know what those problems are, but until we experience them we often don’t feel a sense of urgency in acquiring and deploying an application delivery controller. While it’s certainly true that an application delivery controller can solve many problems that arise, it’s also true that there are benefits to acquiring and deploying an application delivery controller before it becomes absolutely necessary in order to save your application, your site, or your job. So here are six good reasons to consider deploying an application delivery controller now rather than waiting until the next emergency. It will provide your applications with Availability, Efficiency, Security, performance, and reliability.
Identity security describes the proactive approach to safely controlling user and system information that is used to authenticate and authorize user identities for access to secure resources. It is an essential aspect of the identity and access management (IAM) space and serves as the cornerstone for security in any organization.
Identity security has always been an important consideration for IT admins, which is why we have directory services like Active Directory® and OpenLDAP in the first place. Without an authoritative identity provider (IdP), each end user would be responsible for making sure their credentials are secure. Not only is this inefficient, but it would require that each user be adept in the best practices for securing identities.
Experience has taught us that identity security is the foundation for a secure IT infrastructure. The challenge is controlling the flow of information to allow for frictionless access for the right people while minimizing the risk from potential attackers. Shifting identities to the cloud has only added complexity to this balance.
