Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security system that verifies a user’s identity by requiring multiple credentials. It is a critical component of identity and access management (IAM). Rather than just asking for a username and password, MFA requires other—additional—credentials, such as a code from the user’s smartphone, the answer to a security question, a fingerprint, or facial recognition.
MFA is an effective way to provide enhanced security. Traditional usernames and passwords can be stolen, and they’ve become increasingly more vulnerable to brute force attacks. MFA creates multiple layers of security to help increase the confidence that the user requesting access is who they claim to be. With MFA, a cybercriminal may steal one credential but will be thwarted by having to verify identity in a different manner
As the world reels of COVID-19 pandemic, work from home has become a new norm for organizations. With organizations forced to allow employees to work from home to maintain business continuity, India Inc. has realized that perhaps, working remotely, when backed by a high degree of connectivity,security, and communication levels, is, at times, more productive than working out of office.Over the last few weeks, many corporate, enterprise, tech giants like has announced extended work from home. While some companies are looking to let employees work from home, some are considering permanent work from home for a percentage of their workforce.
Remote work helps to boost productivity as it reduces distractions like watercooler discussion, extended coffee breaks, impromptu meetings, etc. With the employees being more focused, they can accomplish more in less time.
In the post-COVID era, social distancing will be the new norm. People can avoid unnecessary travel and go to crowded places by working from home. Curb attrition Millennials are tech-savvy and do not want to be bound to a place. They prefer working remotely so that they can explore new places over being in office. Senior-level employees also prefer to work remotely over retiring.
Therefore, work from home allow employers to have the best of both worlds -
DLP is an integrated solution that uses behavior analytics and employee monitoring to prevent data leakage and insider threats.DLP basically monitors employee activities, behaviors, how sensitive information is exchanged via channels internally and externally across hardware platforms and OS. Based on information collected from varied sensors, admin apply rules and policies to track suspected employees, track, and control sensitive information movement.
VAPT is a term used to describe security testing that is designed to identify and help address cyber security vulnerabilities. VAPT could include anything from automated vulnerability assessments to human-led penetration testing and red team operations.
It is impossible to know when a hacker might target your IT system, but it is possible to make an educated guess as to how they might try to gain access. There are only a limited number of ways into a system through the network, and these are the common routes that hackers use regularly. For a company, or even an individual for that matter, who cares about the sensitive information being kept in their IT system, it is imperative that they consider having a penetration test done regularly.
Penetration testing, which is commonly referred to as pentesting, is the act of trying to break into your own IT systems. Considered being “white-hat” hacking. That is to say, the act of doing a “pentest” is no different than what a hacker might do to get into your system, but if you or a company that specializes in penetration testing wants the test performed, it is “good” hacking.
The way that a pentest is performed changes from system to system and from user to user, but the end-result should be very similar. The person doing the test should have found out whether the system in question can or cannot be hacked. Pentesting is usually performed with specialized tools that are based on the Linux platform. There are also several software frameworks that are used for the purpose of exposing vulnerabilities. Some of these include Nmap, Metasploit Project, W3af, and many more. While each of these products behaves differently and uses unique approaches to achieve similar results, they are only as effective as the user is competent in understanding the risks that these tools discover. It is, therefore, recommended to seek outside help when running serious pen tests.
These tools employ a variety of methods to check for ways into a network or system. One way that this is accomplished is by overloading certain aspects of a network while looking for errors that show up. Errors offer a variety of possible entry points for hackers including supplying the hacker with too much usable information about the system as well as exposing usable ports and input streams
Unified threat management (UTM) provides multiple security features and services in a single device or service on the network, protecting users from security threats in a simplified way. UTM includes functions such as anti-virus, anti-spam, content filtering, and web filtering.UTM security product help reduce administrative overhead because it is all-in-one security product that offers wide range of services eliminating the need to purchase all those products separately. A next-generation firewall (NGFW) is a network security device that provides capabilities beyond a traditional, stateful firewall. While a traditional firewall typically provides stateful inspection of incoming and outgoing network traffic, a next-generation firewall includes additional features like application awareness and control, integrated intrusion prevention, and cloud-delivered threat intelligence
Mobile device management (MDM) is a type of security software used by an IT department to monitor, manage, and secure employees' mobile devices that are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and across multiple mobile operating systems being used in the organization. Mobile Device management software can ensure that your employees are taking the necessary security steps on their personal and company devices by coordinating security provisions. Through mobile device management you can configure devices to protect personal and business data and to remotely lock lost or stolen devices. The increasing consumerization of IT has led to more employees bringing their personal devices to workplace, and with these devices arises the need to monitor and manage them. BYOD has many benefits, including reducing equipment costs and freeing up time for IT (as employees will manage their own devices), but can introduce security risks if devices are not adequately monitored.
Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to the trend of employees using personal devices to connect to their organizational networks and access work-related systems and potentially sensitive or confidential data. Personal devices could include smartphones, personal computers, tablets, or USB drives.
As more and more organizations support employees working from home, maintaining a flexible schedule, or connecting on the go while on work travel or commutes, BYOD solutions have become more prevalent. Some companies may sanction BYOD, while others may consider it part of “shadow IT,” which refers to software or hardware not supported by IT
BYOD security is an important topic for organizational leaders because personal devices are likely to enter the workplace whether sanctioned by IT or not. In many cases, BYOD solutions can improve employee productivity and morale. But, left unaddressed by IT, personal device access to an organization’s network can present serious security challenges.
IT departments must address if and how they will secure personal devices and determine access levels. Most importantly, a defined BYOD security policy should inform and educate employees on how to employ BYOD without compromising organizational data or networks.
A strong BYOD security policy should be integrated with overall IT security and acceptable use policies. As IT leaders determine the level of support they will apply to personal devices, they must ensure a balance between organizational security and employees’ personal privacy.
Endpoint Security is an integrated, extensible security solution that protects servers, computer systems, laptops, and tablets against known and unknown threats. These threats include malware, suspicious communications, unsafe websites, and downloaded files.
Endpoint Security enables multiple defense technologies to communicate in real time to analyze and protect against threats.Endpoint Security consists of these security modules:
Threat Prevention — Prevents threats from accessing systems, scans files automatically when they are accessed, and runs targeted scans for malware on client systems
Web Control — Monitors web searching and browsing activity on client systems and blocks websites and downloads based on safety rating and content.
Adaptive Threat Protection — Analyzes content from your enterprise and decides how to respond based on file reputation, rules, and reputation thresholds. Adaptive Threat Protection is an optional Endpoint Security module. The Common module provides settings for common features, such as interface security and logging. This module is installed automatically if any other module is installed. All modules integrate into a single Endpoint Security interface on the client system. Each module works together and independently to provide several layers of security.
