State of the Customer Data Platform

In the 2020 Tealium State of the CDP Report, we asked over 300 U.S. decision makers in marketing and data/analytics how they are leveraging CDPs today, the challenges they face with current vendors and their future plans for CDP technology. The results reveal that many organizations are still searching for the right solution: 58% of respondents with CDPs said they are planning to switch to a different provider within the next 12 months.

Something needs to change for customer data to reach its full potential. Businesses need greater clarity into what CDPs do, how to select the right CDP and how to optimize the technology — or they risk missing out on enormous CDP benefits.

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.

Zero Trust Whitepaper

Modern cyberattacks are not limited to just network intrusion from the outside. Internal threat actors can often be found at the center of sophisticated attacks.

The Zero Trust model, based on the simple principle of “trust nobody”, defines rules which enhance the security of networks against attacks, whether they are initiated from the outside or within. However, with the rise of encryption of internet traffic, it is becoming increasingly difficult to implement the Zero Trust model in an effective way.

In this white paper, readers will learn about modern cyber threats, what the Zero Trust model is and how it can be used to protect users and data against such attacks, the role of visibility in the implementation of Zero Trust and how TLS decryption is essential for the implementation of a fool proof Zero Trust strategy.
