Strengthen your security front lines with smarter identity

The cutting edge of security strategies is always shifting, as attackers and defenders continue to outdo each other. Modern approaches to enterprise security rely on accurate, complete, and up-to-date information about your users. Yet according to a recent survey of 300 IT leaders and decision makers, 80% do not have a uniform approach to controlling access and meeting compliance requirements that addresses all users.

At the same time, there’s been a proliferation of data in the enterprise, as both inorganic growth and the move to the cloud have created even more difficult-to-access data. Taken together, the already challenging task of securing enterprise resources is now much more complicated.

As the saying goes, ‘you can’t secure what you don’t know.’ To stay abreast of changes and address both the proliferation of users and data, organizations need an always-on identity data foundation that can closely define groups, memberships, and roles to make sure users have the right level of access.

In this webinar, 451 Research’s Garrett Bekker and Radiant Logic’s Wade Ellery will explain the need to unify identity data that is typically sprawled across the enterprise in order to obtain a better handle on identity and close security gaps.
