As with any technology shift, there are many considerations and concerns surrounding a migration to the cloud, like how your existing software licenses transfer, what type of “cloud” you might need, reliability, and as always, security.
Breaches caused by outside hackers get the most press. For example, the recent Equifax breach that resulted in the release of confidential data on 143 million Americans was carried out by external hackers who may have been state sponsored. The breach resulted in Equifax’s chief executive officer, chief information officer, and chief security officer all losing their jobs.
What do Home Depot, Target, Jimmy John’s, Wendy’s, Scottrade, Gmail, and the National Security Agency have in common? Each has suffered a high-profile data breach related to third-party access in the past five years. It’s clear: Many organizations, across industries, are failing to put the necessary security measures in place to prevent or minimize the identity and access risks associated with third-party access.
What is one of the biggest challenges facing K-12 schools today? It might surprise you, but the answer is “cybersecurity.” K-12 schools are a prime target for cyber attacks.
While they might not seem like the most obvious victims of a hack, K-12 schools are attractive for cyber criminals because they hold an enormous amount of student data—an increasingly attractive target for cyberthieves. Read on to learn more about the appeal of student information and why it’s at greater risk than ever for a data breach.
Recently, we’ve been discussing what you must consider when choosing between a single identity and access management (IAM) vendor platform versus multi-vendor point products. In this final installation, we’ll take a closer look at best-of-breed and security as two final considerations and wrap it all up.
As cloud technologies and services become increasingly pervasive, accepted, and economically compelling, it’s no longer a matter of “if”, but when to migrate. However, an equally important question is how to migrate! And more and more, companies are moving some or all of their infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in order to realize lower capital costs and total cost of ownership, elastic scalability, and high availability at a global scale.
Last week, we released our top five most popular Enterprise IAM Blogs from 2017. This week, we want to take a look back at some of our favorite higher education and K12 education-related content. From ransomware, to managing transient users, to student data privacy, we’ve covered a wide range of key topics in the industry.
When selecting a solution for your organization, you may find yourself weighing the merits of point solutions versus a single platform. In part 1 of this series, two considerations were weighed: procurement effort and implementation difficulty. In part 2, we discussed integration complexity. This post will cover five long-term factors you should consider.
Another year, another look back at our top blogs! 2017 produced our our most read blog to-date, RBAC vs ABAC Access Control Models - IAM Explained. And from common Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) terms and factor types to the top challenges and benefits, we also saw great readership on many of our MFA-related articles.
At Identity Automation, we are continuously releasing new product capabilities for our RapidIdentity Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution. We’ve had a few releases this fall and wanted to make our customers aware of key capabilities that have been released over the past several months.
