Enterprises of all sizes are challenged to effectively provide secure
access to a rapidly growing mosaic of cloud, on-premise and mobile
applications. Whether sanctioned by the enterprise IT group of
purchased by departmental shadow IT organizations, individually
provisioned applications present a great management burden with
multiple negative operational effects:
• Time and money wasted by manual on-and off-boarding,
and lost passwords.
• Security risk from weak, easy-to-remember passwords, as well as
from system access by former employees whose credentials are
not promptly revoked.
• Lack of visibility into who accesses which application,
and from where.
As a result, enterprises and users encounter a range of obstacles that
prevent them from securely operating at speed. At best, users who
clamor for access to applications are inconvenienced when they don’t
get access quickly enough, or not at all. Worst case, because today’s
IT footprint is large and porous, companies face headline-m

Corporate data spreads across an ever-growing number of applications. Users (employees, contractors, partners, and customers) access those applications over a wide range of devices.
Those devices take different forms: desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches. Each device may use a different operating system.
The locations from where people access your data can be on-premises or off, and in any number of places around the globe.
Data, users, apps, devices, locations—the sheer number of permutations and combinations is mind-boggling. This complex nature of today’s IT environment opens security gaps and exposes your business to undue risk.
To illustrate, try to envision all the permutations and possible entry points for risk in your organization. Imagine that you have 400 users, each using 25 apps. When you multiply those together, that’s 10,000 potential access permissions to manage.
Access permissions change as users come and go, roles change, new apps are added, and
Consider the volume of business content that your organization generates or receives every day: applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and even social media about your company. If it is poorly managed, not digitized, or disconnected from critical business processes, it creates chaos. This chaos impacts your ability to deliver exceptional customer service; it slows down important processes, increases security risk, and negatively impacts revenue. Conversely, controlling content chaos can significantly improve your analytics strategy by gaining insight and business value from dark or unstructured data sources. In this eBook, learn how cognitive and cloud-based Enterprise Content Management, or ECM, can help you protect your content while gaining a competitive advantage from it as you grow.

The financial industry is experiencing a significant challenge when it comes to maintaining and
establishing trust in its relationships with clients. Customers battered by the constant barrage of
publicized data incursions and security breaches are highly sensitized to those signs in their own dealings.
They find it difficult to accept any disruption in either their business or their personal financial activities
and are easily frightened away from organizations that they perceive as risky.
Cyberattacks are rapidly evolving. It is more critical
than ever that your company be protected by the
latest innovations in endpoint security. And if

Screening your company’s existing workforce can be a critical component in your overall security plan. But the process is far from simple—and is often intimidating. Learn from one company that has navigated the complexities, and consider their strategies to help you plan the process.
Pre-employment background screening is now considered a standard practice in Corporate America. Very few companies, however, are crossing the threshold to conduct screens on their existing workforce. It’s a complex endeavor, and to be successful, companies need to walk a fine line between addressing legitimate business and security risks and not alienating employees along the way.

The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by
both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it
extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect
critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these
assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become
more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations
and in the cloud.
Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common:
They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords.
In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through
various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the
kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for
weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience.
Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how
privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated
with their compromise an
Communication is Easy - or is it?
Collaboration across global teams is essential to the success of multinational organizations, but ensuring everyone understands each other can be challenging.

Without question, your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored.
It’s no secret that the way people work has changed dramatically over the past few years. As highly distributed environments become the norm, security teams are scrambling to protect users, the growing number of device types they carry, and their data.
With more users, devices, and applications connecting to the network, the number of risks and vulnerabilities is also increasing — triggering a total transformation in the security landscape.
In this research readout, we explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.Explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.

Health care is often considered a lucrative business for those involved in waste, fraud and abuse. Today’s ever-accelerating technology changes make data related to health care, medical and financial issues even more attractive (and profitable) to cybercriminals who sell medical identities and siphon money from stolen financial records. Risks are exponentially increased because of organizations’ reliance on electronic systems for mission-critical functions. According to 61% of respondents to the SANS 2014 State of Cybersecurity in Health Care Organizations survey, medical/health record systems
are considered the most at-risk information asset among the 224 health care-related organizations represented in the survey.
