Cavium enables secure access to privileged credentials with One Identity Safeguard

The majority of headlines about cybersecurity failures center on the theft or loss of customer or citizen information, and larceny linked to money.

Is Biometrics The Future of Security?

Ever have trouble remembering your password? With the rise of digital economy and social media, many people have dozens of accounts. Humans are incapable remembering strong, unique passwords for dozens of accounts. Passwords form the foundation of security from physical security such as entering a building to online security such as internet banking.

However, passwords have a fundamental flaw. They can be compromised, either stolen or in some cases, simply guessed and used to impersonate another person. Biometrics offers the possibility to recognize a person through something that is inherent to that individual.

Strategies for successfully managing privileged accounts

One of the most important aspects of an identity and access management (IAM) program is the securing, management and governance of the accounts belonging to superusers — privileged accounts

Like the accounts used by regular users, these superuser accounts require access management – ensuring that admins have the access they need to do their job — and governance – ensuring that there is oversight and control over that access, often for the purpose of compliance. Unfortunately, privileged accounts have some unique idiosyncrasies that make both access management and governance difficult or impossible with traditional PAM methods.

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.

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.
