Administration network: 6 risks addressed by PAM

Within any organization, there are several risks for the administration network: some have a high occurrence and are simple to deal with, others are rare but complex to handle. The use of a Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution allows to manage these risks by minimizing or even eliminating them. Administration network: protean risks The risks that arise on the administration network can be the result of deliberate acts but also due to errors or negligence. From the use of generic… Read More >>

User Behavior Analytics (UBA): key applications for cybersecurity

While User Behavior Analytics (UBA) is not a new concept, its applications are multiplying as Machine Learning becomes more mature. By associating Machine Learning and Big Data, UBA updates the patterns (reference models) and detects any deviation that is potentially dangerous for the information system. What is User Behavior Analytics? User Behavior Analytics is a category of applications that analyzes the user’s behavior and detects abnormal and potentially malicious actions. This behavioral analysis, which can be applied to all users,… Read More >>

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

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 >>

Working from home : Cybersecurity tips to follow

The latest transport strikes and the isolation of millions of employees to slow the spread of Covid-19 have been the vectors for massive teleworking in 2019 and 2020. The wide use of telework is not without risks for organizations’ information systems. Companies and organizations have less control over the networks, equipment and actions of their employees and, at the same time, must cope with an increase of cyber attacks from entities hoping to take advantage of this situation. Telework :… Read More >>

Workplace Experience

Workplace Experience, a challenge for companies in 2020?

The Workplace Experience corresponds to all the experiences of an employee within an organization. These experiences will be decisive for his professional development, his ability to create value by aggregating skills and knowledge through a maximized collaboration, and ultimately to participate to the achievement of the organization’s objectives. Keys to a successful Workplace Experience The availability of a unique work environment, regardless of the access device, regardless of whether the user is at the company’s premises or on the move,… 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 >>

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 >>
