IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.
Read this Forrester whitepaper to learn more about the critical, yet often overlooked, role that data classification and data discovery can play in reducing your organization's risk and enhancing security.
With the exploding adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, enterprise IT is fundamentally changing. While on-demand services provide tremendous ROI, they also introduce new challenges that must be overcome to truly capitalize on their potential. Identity management problems such as controlling who is granted access to which applications and data and how to control access to these applications leveraging on premise directories such as Active Directory, have become increasingly important. Single Sign-On and user management solutions that are optimized for the cloud are necessary to help address these challenges. This whitepaper presents the eight biggest identity and access management (IAM) challenges associated with adopting and deploying cloud and SaaS applications, and discusses best practices for addressing each of them.
Gartner recently released the Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Management as a Service (IDaaS) and has named Okta a leader in the space. This Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors on their abilities to be global, general purpose identity and access management (IAM) service providers for multiple use cases.
This report outlines the future look of Forrester’s solution for security and risk (S&R) executives working on building an identity and access management strategy for the extended enterprise. We designed this report to help you understand and navigate the major business and IT trends affecting identity and access management (IAM) during the next five years. IAM in 2015 has become a tool not just for security but also for business agility. Competitive challenges push businesses into the cloud and encourage mobile device use even without full-fledged access controls in place.
Microsoft made a massive push to the cloud in 2014, and as a result Office 365 is taking off. We’re seeing it in how Okta customers are using Okta to connect to Office 365 in increasing numbers. This eGuide provides some data from the Okta Application Network on the trends we are seeing around Office 365. It also describes the most important things to consider for Identity and Mobility Management during deployment. Office 365 is unlike any other cloud app in it’s complexity, and it is best for IT to plan and deploy solutions around Identity and Mobility Management in concert with their Office 365 roll-out to get maximum user adoption.

You can’t open a newspaper or visit an online news site these days without some mention of a cyber-attack or data breach. These activities are becoming more prevalent, and as a result, the reporting of these activities is also on the rise.
Bit9 + Carbon Black reached out to a series of experts to collect their thoughts and advice on dealing with data security incidents or breaches.
Businesses need to view security as a process and leverage solutions that can proactively collect data, apply aggregated threat intelligence, reduce the cost and complexity of incident response and evolve, adapt and learn from your investigation.
This eGuide will cover how a continuous approach to response can resolve these challenges and put your organization in a better security posture by proactively preparing for a breach.
Most organizations have not proactively prepared for a breach. In fact, a majority of incident responders (52 percent) say they lack the necessary visibility into endpoint vulnerabilities. Without continuous data collection at the endpoint, preparing and responding to a breach is exponentially hampered. Download the SANS Institute’s latest industry survey to understand these key findings.
With the number of advanced attacks increasing every day—most undiscovered through traditional detection and response solutions—truly hunting for threats within your environment can be a laborious task. To combat this, enterprises must focus on prioritizing endpoint data collection over detection, leveraging comprehensive threat intelligence, and expanding detection beyond the moment of compromise.
