Palo Alto Networks remains a leader in Forrester's zero trust platform rankings while Microsoft and Check Point entered the leaders category for the first time. Vendors in the zero trust platform space ditched point products and pursued organic investments or M&A to create a broader offering.
Microsoft updated Windows 11 on Tuesday to simplify passwordless adoption, protect against malicious code and have the ability to refresh configuration in the event of tampering. Updates to Windows 11 allow users to replace passwords with passkeys to stop hackers from exploiting stolen passwords.
CyberArk, BeyondTrust and Delinea maintained their spots atop Gartner's privileged access management Magic Quadrant, while One Identity, Wallix and Arcon fell from the leader ranks. Over the past half-decade, PAM has gone from being required for large companies to being an insurance prerequisite.
Healthcare leaders have been employing user access monitoring for some time now, but how and to what extent organizations leverage this as part of their cybersecurity strategies can vary. Here are some questions around user access monitoring that aren't discussed as frequently as they should be.
Inadequate authentication measures leave your digital identity vulnerable to cybercriminals. Tools like multi-factor authentication, biometrics, passwords, PINs, and tokens are all more vulnerable to attacks and social engineering than you realize. And one wrong move leaves you and your organization powerless in the...
Non-human entities vastly outnumber the people in a typical organization and are harder to monitor and manage – or even identify at all.
A comprehensive privileged access management strategy accounts for privileges no matter where they “live” – on-premises, in the cloud and in hybrid environments – and...
Multiple nation-state hacking groups have been exploiting known flaws in Zoho ManageEngine software and Fortinet firewalls to steal data, cybersecurity officials warn. A new alert details exploits of each vulnerability by separate groups that targeted the same aeronautical firm.
Welcome to the report summarizing the survey conducted in spring/summer 2023. It attracted 214
responses from senior cybersecurity professionals in the NA,
APAC, UKI and EU regions.
The goals for this study were to identify:
The top organizational challenges in securing non-SSO
Government agencies are adopting zero trust architectures, both to meet regulatory requirements, but also as a security imperative to mature their security posture, however the specific challenges faced differ from those of commercial entities. Watch this webinar to gain insights into a dedicated Zero Trust practice...
Financially motivated hackers developed custom malware to exploit a likely zero-day flaw in popular vacation resort management software, say security researchers. Hackers target the hospitality industry with regularity, given the massive amounts of personal and payment data inside the sector.
In the latest weekly update, Jeremy Grant of Venable joins three ISMG editors to discuss why the U.S. government is taking a back seat on digital identity issues, the risks of artificial intelligence, and takeaways from the U.S. Cyber Safety Review Board's recent report on cybercrime group Lapsus$.
The shift from traditional malware-led attacks to identity-based attacks in the realm of cybersecurity has become more prominent than ever. Attackers continuously adapt their tactics, seek the path of least resistance and focus on exploiting vulnerabilities in identity-related weaknesses.
The Zero Trust mindset operates under the assumption that all users and resources are untrusted, and always need to be verified.
The underlying principle is to control who has access to which systems and data and have well-defined policies to define when to allow or restrict access, and how to enforce it.
The sudden change that came with WFH mandates and the need to keep workers productive at all costs gave rise to rapid access to technology. This access often bypassed regular checks and balances around access requests.
This E-book, outlines the security implications of this new work environment.
In today's evolving digital landscape, application security is crucial. That’s why it is increasingly important to normalize the use of two-factor authentication in the developer community to the point that it is "effectively ubiquitous," said John Swanson, director of security strategy at GitHub.
