As digital transformation efforts accelerate, enterprises need to prepare for its impact on their workforce. New resources, applications and data are moving to the cloud, yet you still need to maintain mission-critical resources on-premises. This hybrid reality is pretty much the rule these days, not the exception.
However, in managing this hybrid world, you may feel challenged by the complexities of balancing security requirements without introducing friction to the employee experience. On one hand, you must reduce the risk of security breaches and comply with ever-changing data, consent, and privacy regulatory requirements. At the same time, you need to provide employees with seamless access that maximizes their productivity without compromising security. As digital transformation moves more resources outside of the traditional corporate network, many organizations are moving towards Zero Trust.
Identity – The Foundation of Zero Trust:
It seems like every vendor is touting a Zero Trust solution to a CISO today. The truth is, whether or not they are calling it Zero Trust, organizations have been abandoning network perimeters in favor of an identity-centric approach for some time now. That starts with deploying strong authentication, access, and governance at the center. When all network traffic is by default untrusted, enterprises require a strong identity foundation that can leverage dynamic policies and access rights to apply the right balance of security and convenience for their employees.
By implementing an identity foundation as part of your Zero Trust journey you can take an integrated approach to users, applications, data and networks. Each of these areas requires strong authentication and secure access delivered via adaptive/contextual policies and governance. A single source of truth is required to ensure that strong authentication can be delivered promptly. It also ensures the right accounts, entitlements, and attributes are in place for organizations to control the full lifecycle and policies of these identities and the resources they are accessing.
With Zero Trust, cloud applications and security are equally important as on-premise systems and applications.
The combination of Ping Identity’s enterprise level access management and SailPoint’s AI-driven identity governance takes on the complex security and compliance issues found within large enterprise organizations. This allows for a true least privileged model to be established and enabling the ability to move from Zero Trust to trusted.
