Why a Zero Trust strategy is crucial in today’s cloud-first world.

Organizations are facing cyber threats daily, from both inside and outside the network. The time has come to instill a Zero Trust mentality in your organization. Insider threats can lead to data leaks and expose your company to risks. You need solutions to help you automate your identity management processes so the right people have the right access at the right time.  

Common Challenges

Here are the top challenges we find related to identity and access management. Do any of these sound familiar?

  • Security Vulnerabilites

  • Data Leaks

  • Inefficient Role Based Access

Security Vulnerabilities

Security Vulnerabilities

The bigger your business, the more difficult it is to control who is accessing your network, and how. Multi-location organizations or employees that require unique access exasperate the issue. Disparate identify and access tools or worse, manual on-boarding and off-boarding, create risk exposure and increase security vulnerabilities.

Security Vulnerabilities
Data Leaks

Data Leaks

The most common causes of data leaks are from insiders and third-party hackers. Exposed data, like passwords or other sensitive information, can put a company's customers at risk for identity theft or fraud, or the company itself could become the victim of ransomware.

Data Leaks
Onboarding Processes

Inefficient Role Based Access

When onboarding (and off-boarding) new employees, your IT department should have a role based access protocol in place. You should be able to automatically grant new users their access permissions as soon as their role is input in the system. Without it, it difficult to grant the proper access to users which can expose privileged information.
