Behavioral biometrics: A new authentication factor which needs to develop

Still marginal today, behavioral biometrics is already revolutionizing paradigms and authentication methods. By strengthening the security of information systems and making authentication more comfortable for users, this new factor is essential in the dynamic context created by today’s technological evolution and society. Indeed, the traditional password is becoming increasingly obsolete and used alone, it does not guarantee a sufficient level of security. Multi-factor authentication responds to this issue, with a trend towards the use of factors inherent to the user… Read More >>

Secure Access Service Edge: A Paradigm Shift

The network and network security world is experiencing, like any other technology, its digital revolution. The traditional vision of “inside the firewall” and “outside the firewall” has been shattered: Internet has become the network of the extended enterprise. Secure Access Service Edge: Trends Leading to a Paradigm Shift Moving from a “network-centric” architecture to a “user-centric” and “application-centric” architecture. On the one hand, the cloud and the decentralization of servers and applications in disparate clouds; on the other hand, the… Read More >>

Continuous Authentication : When Behavioral Analysis Guarantees Your Identity

Many authentication methods exist nowadays. The most well-known of them is by using the login/password pair. For a better secured access to the information system, many organizations have implemented a multi-factor authentication (MFA), especially for IS administrators. But once authenticated, what guarantees that it is the same person behind the screen, mouse or keyboard? Continuous authentication : what is it ? Continuous authentication is a permanent authentication based on the user’s behavior on the workstation. Via the Machine Learning, a… Read More >>

Cybersecurity: a cost that generates savings

Cybersecurity: a cost that generates savings

For organizations, the deployment of cybersecurity solutions represents a significant and yet essential cost. The challenge is to avoid cyber attacks (internal or external to the organization) and therefore their financial consequences (among others). However, this cost must be seen in the context of potential savings that can be realized when a cyber attack fails thanks to the cyber security solutions deployed by the target organization. In their ninth annual study “The cost of Cybercrime” [01], Accenture Security and the… Read More >>

The human face of the workplace

The human face of the workplace

A world without users? “Automation”, “DevOps”, “Robotic Process Automation” (RPA), bots, chatbots and other robots, “artificial intelligence” (AI), … According to some people, users will disappear from the scene: the omnipresence of computing, called “digital”, will eventually replace them, do everything for them, and even do more and better than they do. Clearly, as the French song goes, “we are very little things, …”. Will dematerialization go so far as to dematerialize the user? Is there anyone still behind the… Read More >>

Zero Trust

Zero Trust, a modern and agile defense paradigm?

For those who are responsible for the management of a company’s IT infrastructure, it is quite clear that the moat technique, i.e. the old idea of building a moat around a castle to keep intruders at bay, is no longer relevant. This is not only inefficient but also hardly feasible given the number and diversity of entry points into the IS of any company with a reasonable size today. Indeed, the risks and threats to the information assets of companies and… Read More >>

Ständige Authentifizierung in der Cyber-Welt

Continuous authentication in Cyberia

Security is a matter of compromise, a balance between confidentiality and convenience, control and efficiency. While it would be easy to restrict access to an Information System in order to protect sensitive business data, it would become impossible to make it a tool for productivity and growth, especially at a time when openness and collaboration are taken for granted. At the same time, the strict control and monitoring of “power” users has become of crucial importance given the recent cases… Read More >>

In the age of artificial intelligence, nothing new… really?

The year 2017 was marked by numerous issues in the cyber domain. We can mention the successive ransomware waves but also the imminent arrival of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which is the subject of many conferences, posts, forum topics, etc. Another great subject was the “second birth” of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Concerning the artificial intelligence (AI), we are still far from Skynet from Terminator, I can assure you. However, it has to be said that a… Read More >>

Of Machine Learning and Application Virtualization

Machine Learning is nowadays one of the most common expressions in literature, but the fields of application are so vast that it can sometimes be difficult to grasp all the issues involved. In practice, the Machine Learning can be applied to almost all sectors of activity, whether it is the autonomous driving of vehicles in public spaces or learning from the behavior of users of a company information system. While the most compelling results for the general public are found… Read More >>
