Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has warned that small security gaps risk increasingly large and frequent data breaches in the enterprise during 2018.
Centrify Senior Director APAC Sales Niall King said the problem was that corporate defences were failing to keep pace with evolving threats. “Developments such as Crime-as-a-Service and the Internet of Things are allowing bad guys to run rings around legacy defence systems,” he said.
“Cybercriminals are better organised and the tools they use are more easily available while the plethora of Internet-connected devices increases the attack surface of both homes and businesses. On top of that, the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) revealed that four out of five (81 per cent) of hacking-related breaches leverage either stolen and/or weak passwords.
Zero Trust approach to security. Zero Trust assumes that everything — users, endpoints, resources — is untrusted and always must be verified to decrease the chance of a major data breach.Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has unveiled its
As retailers gird themselves for Christmas sales, Centrify has warned that the increasing size and frequency of data breaches clearly demonstrates that old security models based on protecting network perimeters are failing both businesses and consumers. This is a significant lesson for Australia where its mandatory data breach notification law takes effect from February next year.
At last week’s Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit in Las Vegas, Centrify chief product officer Bill Mann explained that Zero Trust was the right approach to security today due to the porous network perimeter created by the rise of remote workers, BYOD devices and cloud resources. “The modern hybrid enterprise must adopt a Zero Trust security model,” he said.
Centrify, a leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, has announced two milestones with Amazon Web Services (AWS): Centrify has been named an Advanced tier Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and Centrify Identity Services are now available on AWS Marketplace.
Achieving Advanced Technology Partner status in the APN allows Centrify to leverage the power of AWS’s shared security model and provide identity and privilege management solutions for AWS administrators as well as developers and users of applications and workloads running on AWS services.
This week, Centrify is both exhibiting and presenting at AWS re:INVENT 2017 in Las Vegas.
“We are thrilled to be a member of the AWS Partner Network and extend our collaboration with the leading cloud services provider,” said Bill Mann, chief product officer at Centrify. “Our Advanced Technology Partner status enables us to couple Centrify’s cutting-edge identity services and privilege management with the AWS shared security model, making it simpler for organisations to securely manage their employees’ access to corporate AWS resources for development, application hosting and cloud storage and minimises the need for administrative shared accounts and passwords to be reset on AWS.
