“The past two years have seen a rapid shift of work to remote and hybrid offices. The statistics show that hackers welcomed that shift and took advantage of the vulnerabilities and gaps in security by businesses” – Forbes.
With the transformation happening in the digital workspace and the sudden shift to remote work, and cloud initiatives, enterprises must evolve and embrace identity security as their overall security strategy!
At the start of the pandemic, organizations were in such a hurry to switch to a virtual working model that they missed out on the necessary security controls that would keep their business assets protected. While they concentrated on keeping their employees productive from the comfort of their homes, threat actors used this as an opportunity and hijacked the vulnerable systems.
Only the enterprises that prioritized identity security as a part of the overall cloud security strategy were able to prevail during this quick pivot!
All the identities of your IT admins, remote workers, third-party vendors, devices, and applications are prone to become privileged under certain situations. This loophole can create an attack path to your enterprise’s most valuable digital assets. Therefore, an identity security approach built on top of a zero-trust security model is integral for protecting your digital assets against modern-day risks and vulnerabilities!
If you are thinking what identity security is and why it has now become the talk among the inheritors of the digital estate, you are at the right place!
We are industry leaders in cyber security management, and here in this blog we explain how to safeguard your cloud infrastructure with identity security and what exactly is the difference between identity security and zero trust
Let’s plunge in and explore the foundation of your successful digital transformation endeavors.
From securing and preventing unauthorized access to your cloud platforms to leveraging AI and machine learning to help you gain complete visibility of your cloud atmosphere, identity security can simplify and strategize your cloud security in million different ways!
Let’s take a scenario where your employees are using various cloud-based SaaS applications for their day-to-day activities. Now remembering and managing the passwords of all the applications can be a tedious task! And when not managed/monitored properly all the individual identities can become a matter of threat! This is when identity security steps in and solves the hassle by centrally managing the identities.
Identity security harnesses the power of the zero-trust security model! Zero trust leverages single sign-on as a strategy for authenticating your users before providing them access to valuable applications. Now with this model of authentication, your users can securely access multiple applications and websites with just one set of credentials.
As many think, zero trust is not technology! It is in fact, an approach to security that runs by the principle of “always verify, never trust”.
This approach ensures every user’s identity is verified, their devices are validated, and they only have access to perform only what’s required for the role. On the other hand, identity security involves incorporating all the relevant technologies and best practices that are foundational to achieving zero trust.
If you are running an enterprise in 2022, you need to secure your enterprise and empower your workforce! And to achieve the aforementioned, you should embrace a solid identity security framework. Identity security can support you across various dimensions of your organization’s security processes like automating onboarding & offboarding, securing remote work, managing cloud identities, and addressing compliance regulations.
