Finding the Needles (Shadow IT) in the Haystack

Authored by Barak Kaufman The explosion of SaaS continues and has become a major challenge for enterprise security teams. Organizations now store nearly all of their most sensitive corporate data in cloud applications.   Additionally, the use of shadow SaaS applications (hidden from IT) is a widespread issue. According to SailPoint’s research, most organizations have 3.5-4x more SaaS apps in use by employees than the IT & Security teams are aware of.  Each one of these SaaS applications introduces new […]

Correlated Identities from IDN within CAM

Can You Prevent Access Risks Before They Happen?

Authored by Alex Gambill Preventing access risks is like building defenses for a castle. There are ramparts that form a perimeter and a moat to deter invaders because it’s a lot easier to keep enemies out than to remove them once they’re in. Trying to rid a system of risks after threats have been detected is analogous to building a moat around a castle after the enemy is inside.  We can think of identity security as the moat that forces users through a checkpoint that controls entry. User identification is the most relevant security […]

Now, our borders are open to remote users and non-traditional mission partners, which have dissolved traditional network boundaries rendering them ineffective.  Today, to be secure, we must implement other methods: zero trust is a concept and paradigm shift in how we think […]

No Time to Spy: GCHQ Issues Its 10 Steps to Cyber Security

Authored by Stephen Bradford, SVP EMEA, SailPoint It was in GoldenEye that ‘M’ (a very modern incarnation played by Judi Dench), derided Bond as a ‘relic of the Cold War’ and a ‘dinosaur.’ Her sobriquet of Bond is likely something he wore with pride but let’s face it—the Bond incarnations […]

Questions are Free: Identity Compromised

On this episode of Mistaken Identity, Mike Kiser is joined by Katherine Teitler, VP of Research and Advisory at TAG Cyber. Her recent research illustrates the shifting role of identity—from an IT process to a foundational approach for security.
