Whitepaper: SOC-as-a-Service for Law Firms

A Security Operations Center (SOC) is a team of cybersecurity professionals whose task it is to monitor networks for cyberattacks and suspicious behavior, as well as improve internal security controls and procedures. Some large enterprises will have their own SOC, but for many law firms that's simply out of the question.

For a law firm, a managed SOC service company like Cygilant can make all the difference. In addition to providing expertise and a repeatable SOC process for effective and scalable operations, SOC analysts can provide detailed reviews of triggered events, and advise on security threats with in-depth knowledge about a law firm's environment, instead of treating each alert in isolation as good or bad.

Is Biometrics the future of security?

One of the first things that every IT security professional need to know is that there are no “silver bullets” in this field. Defense in depth is one of the oldest IT security concepts. Its main point is that “layered security mechanisms increase security of the system as a whole. If an attack causes one security mechanism to fail, other mechanisms may still provide the necessary security to protect the system. Behavioral biometrics methods, such as keystroke dynamics or mouse movement analysis are ideal additional layers of defense. Besides the usual preventive security systems, such as firewalls or security doors, enterprises can introduce these solutions easily, without subjecting their employees to obtrusive analyses. More importantly, these provide results in real- time, able to monitor the activities of users continuously and accurately enough to avoid false alerts.

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Analytics integrates data from our session management solution, with a variety of logs and contextual data points. Our thirteen algorithms scrutinize seventeen behavioral characteristics generating user behavior profiles for each individual privileged user that are continually adjusted using machine learning.

2020 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for PAM

Privileged Access Management (PAM) is one of the most important areas of risk management and security in any organization. Privileged accounts have traditionally been given to administrators to access critical data and applications. But, changing business practices, hybrid IT, cloud and other aspects of digital transformation has meant that users of privileged accounts have become more numerous and widespread. To reduce the risk of privileged accounts being hijacked or fraudulently used, and to uphold stringent regulatory compliance within an organization, a strong PAM solution is essential.

This report is an overview of the market for Privilege Access Management (PAM) solutions and provides a compass to help buyers find the solution that best meets their needs. KuppingerCole examines the market segment, vendor functionality, relative market share, and innovative approaches to providing PAM solutions.

How the Combination of Message, Video, and Phone Will Reshape the Future of Work

Before COVID-19, organizations dabbled in remote and flexible work arrangements for many years without any particular urgency. In the wake of COVID-19, however, the slow-and-steady approach turned upside down. Businesses suddenly had to accelerate their remote work plans and get employees completely equipped to work from home.

As business leaders plan to support more remote work in the immediate and distant future, equipping remote workers with the right technologies is mission-critical. It’s time to move into the next phase of remote work and explore permanent collaboration solutions - with WFH 2.0.

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.
