AWS provides powerful controls to manage the security of software-defined infrastructure and
cloud workloads, including virtual networks for segmentation, DDoS mitigation, data encryption,
and identity and access control. Because AWS enables rapid and elastic scalability, the key
to securing cloud environments is using security automation and orchestration to effectively
implement consistent protection across your AWS environment.
The following eBook will discuss Dome9 best practices for using AWS controls to establish a
strict security posture that addresses your unique business needs, and maintaining consistency
across regions, accounts, and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) as your environment grows.
Businesses today must reduce the risk of security breaches to protect the valuable data within their
organizations. At the same time, IT auditors are increasingly enforcing ever more stringent requirements
on the business. The bottom line is that privileged accounts and privileged access are being targeted by
hackers as a new attack surface and focused on by auditors who are insisting on greater controls around
The right privileged access management solution provides comprehensive protection for your missioncritical
servers with powerful, fine-grained controls over operating system-level access and privileged
user actions. Capable of enforcing access controls on powerful native Superuser accounts—like the
UNIX® and Linux® root and Microsoft® Windows® administrator—this system-level, host-based privileged
access management solution controls, monitors and audits privileged user activity, improving security and
simplifying audit and compliance.
For organizations with additional security requirements for high value servers hosting business-critical assets, CA Privileged Access Manager Server Control provides localized, fine-grained access control and protection over operating system-level access and application-level access. Agent-based, kernel-level protection is available for individual files, folders and specific commands based on policy and/or finedgrained controls on specific hosts.
This report describes the results from a groundbreaking
global study by Thycotic that reveals major risk and
compliance gaps in how organizations manage and secure
their privileged accounts and access to sensitive systems,
infrastructure and data. The 2018 Global State of Privileged
Access Management (PAM) Risk & Compliance report
highlights where many organizations are failing to fully
put security controls in place to protect their most critical
VMware Identity Manager provides single sign-on (SSO) to a broad range of SaaS applications, as well as legacy applications published via virtual desktop platforms from VMware and Citrix, and browser-based and native mobile apps. VMware Identity Manager also provides application provision¬ing and conditional (adaptive, or risk-based) access controls, and can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud. In this report, 451 Research analyzes VMware’s strategic effort to bridge the legacy on-premises world (which still represents most of its business) with the more highly distributed and heterogeneous worlds of mobile and cloud computing. 451 also examines VMware’s re-entry into the IDaaS market is to extend their market reach beyond what VDI and EMM might accomplish individually.
Quest Workspacetm Privilege Manager lets IT administrators grant selected privileges to users so they can update their own PCs, reducing help desk calls while maintaining a secure network. Elevate and manage user rights quickly and precisely with our Validation Logic targeting technology. Use privilege elevation rules from the Privilege Authority Community Edition, or create your own rules and allow administrator-level access to only the applications, Windows processes and ActiveX controls you deem safe.
This report outlines the future look of Forrester’s solution for security and risk (S&R) executives working on building an identity and access management strategy for the extended enterprise. We designed this report to help you understand and navigate the major business and IT trends affecting identity and access management (IAM) during the next five years. IAM in 2015 has become a tool not just for security but also for business agility. Competitive challenges push businesses into the cloud and encourage mobile device use even without full-fledged access controls in place.

According to Gartner, E-discovery readiness is an initiative that spans legal, IT and business stakeholder concerns and can also unify and align with archiving and data management strategies. To reduce risk and exposure, an E-discovery plan should be proactive and holistic instead of reactive and time pressured.
This newsletter, “Strengthen E-Discovery Readiness to Reduce Cost and Risk” features Gartner research and offers guidance on the considerations for and E-discovery action plan, such as retention schedules, access rights, privacy concerns and security controls.
Company data is vulnerable to threats from - insiders, unauthorized access to data, data backup, off-site mirroring - just to name a few. Encrypting data at rest, on tape or disk, significantly mitigates these threats. This document provides guidance into some of the factors a company should consider when evaluating storage security technology and solutions.
This whitepaper examines the way in which enterprise mobility has both increased employee productivity and decreased the security of corporate networks. The paper discusses the challenges IT managers have with controlling the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) trend to allow mobile users to have access to the corporate network. Explained in the paper is the limit to visibility and control of file transfers when employees use ad hoc methods, and that educating employees on proper data access is not enough to protect the corporate network. The paper concludes by describing how Globalscape's EFT™ and Tappin™ can provide mobile access, without compromising security and controls over file sharing.
In our first cyber security checklist, we provided a security overview and best practices to help organizations prevent an initial compromise from occurring. In this guide, we will help you understand practical steps you can take to mitigate techniques attackers use once they have penetrated your defenses. Once attackers have access to a machine, they can evade detection by using fileless techniques and legitimate system administration tools to do their dirty work. With this checklist, you will have a guide to help mitigate the impact of an attacker. Lastly, we will hep you understand how partnering with a company like Alert Logic can provide better defenses to stop attackers in their tracks.
This checklist helps to explain how to:
• How to manage and limit PowerShell access
• Securing and utilizing Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
• Ways to apply application controls
• Following the principle of least privilege and applying access controls
• What to monitor for to help uncover
