Key Findings: Privileged Access and the Impact of Pass the Hash Attacks

The goal of this survey was to capture hard data on current experiences, trends and approaches to Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), Privileged Access Management (PAM) and account management and Identity SaaS.

A total of 1,005 qualified individuals completed the survey. All participants had direct responsibility for IT security and were very knowledgeable about the IAM and privileged access approach at their company. A wide range of industries, countries, and company sizes were represented.

Understanding Privileged Identity Theft

This white paper will explain why privileged identities pose such a risk to enterprises, how they are compromised by attackers, how current methods fail to stop these threats, and how your organization can protect itself.

Proper AD Management and Privileged Access Management Eliminate Risk

Events and breaches over the last few years have exposed, in a high-profile way, particular vulnerabilities of our modern IT environments. It’s obvious now that perimeter security alone is no longer sufficient to protect our highly dynamic, connected and mobile enterprises. Additional drivers, such as insider threats, emphasize the need to protect identities. And a key component of identity management for most organizations is Active Directory (AD). As 95 percent of enterprises rely on AD as their primary authentication mechanism, AD is a popular target for the bad guys

Hybrid IAM Offers Flexibility and Enhanced Security

One of the fastest growing segments of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) market is the cloud segment. Increasingly, companies are choosing to move at least part of their security infrastructure to cloud-based solutions. Even if you still run critical IAM service on-prem, there’s a great chance you manage and integrate with cloud applications

The 12 Essential Tasks of Active Directory Domain Services

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) administration and management includes 12 major tasks. These tasks cover a wide breadth of business needs and are not all performed solely by AD DS administrators. In fact, administrators can and should delegate several tasks to other members of their technical community, technicians, help desk personnel, even users such as team managers and administrative assistants. While delegation is a way to reduce the amount of work administrators have to do when managing AD DS infrastructures, it really only addresses one or two of the 12 tasks, for example, user and group administration as well as end point device administration. The other ten tasks can be staggering in nature — security, networked service administration, OU-Specific Management, Group Policy Object management and many more — and because of this can take up inordinate amounts of time,

Protecting the data of refugees and those who help them

To protect refugees, employees and supply transports—plus minimise costs—the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) wanted to standardise the management of Active Directory. After evaluating solution options, DRC deployed One Identity Active Roles. As a result, DRC established user templates and automated workflows for governing access for 7,000 global employees. Today, DRC can provision new users in an hour. IT staff have greater control over who can access which applications and data. And the organisation has increased staff efficiency, boosted savings and simplified regulatory compliance.

The top five ways to relieve the pain of managing hybrid AD environments

Active Directory is everywhere and Azure Active Directory (AAD), its cloud-based cousin, is quickly gaining ground. Currently, nearly ninety percent of organizations worldwide are using Active Directory (AD) for on-premises resources (aka on-prem). That represents 500 million organizations and somewhere around 10 billion daily authentications. In fact, in the world of identity and access management (IAM), AD has become unavoidable and absolutely necessary for on-prem user authentication and authorization. You have to go through AD. It’s just how it’s done. Now, mix in the cloud – and Azure AD– and your management complexity just skyrocketed – and you could be in for a world of pain, if your on-prem or cloud identity environments are not managed and synced properly.

Why Network Verification Requires A Mathematical Model

Network verification is a rapidly emerging technology that is a key part of Intent Based Networking (IBN). Verification can help avoid outages, facilitate compliance processes and accelerate change windows. Full-feature verification solutions require an underlying mathematical model of network behavior to analyze and reason about policy objectives and network designs. A mathematical model, as opposed to monitoring or testing live traffic, can perform exhaustive and definitive analysis of network implementations and behavior, including proving network isolation or security rules.

In this paper, we will describe how verification can be used in key IT processes and workflows, why a mathematical model is required and how it works, as well as example use cases from the Forward Enterprise platform. This will also clarify what requirements a mathematical model must meet and how to evaluate alternative products.

Accelerating Network Verification with Intent Based Networking

Intent-based networking (IBN) products are now available to intelligently automate many networking tasks, including verification and compliance reviews. IBN can provide the end-to-end view of network policies and behavior needed to verify device configurations and connectivity. IBN has the ability to intelligently reason about network behavior to automate many remediation and testing processes.
