Identity Governance (IGA) is a Core Part of Your Cyber Defense
Do not give away the keys to your most valuable data. If you have got incorrect identities or ungoverned privileged accounts with extensive access rights your security system may be giving access to the wrong people, either through malicious activity or by accident.
As more and more business processes fall under the remit of IT, the importance of cybersecurity infrastructure gets stronger. Identity governance is at the heart of cybersecurity, protecting IP, sensitive data, and helping to achieve regulatory compliance as a key part of every organization’s Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) roadmap for the digital future.
Extend Your Security Defenses
Omada’s Identity Governance provides end-to-end management of on-boarding, changes, and off-boarding processes that not only ensure an employee can fulfill their job role, but also enables the organization to rapidly limit the damages of a security breach. If a user account is compromised, an intruder will only have limited access to systems. The security boundary that these processes create is seen as adding further security to traditional security defenses such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems and is referred to as the “identity perimeter”.
Limit Your Breach Exposure
Identity Security Breach Management
Tighten security against internal and external threats at the identity level. When your system has experienced a security breach, you need to act quickly and effectively to limit its impact and damage. But to do this, your administrators must have the ability to suspend all accounts associated with the affected identity to minimise its spread, with an easy reactivation process once the situation is under control. Your network also needs to have automated emergency lockout features that can disable a user’s access to both cloud-based and on-premises systems, with a robust policy to guide its use and implementation.
Why Security Breach Management is Important:
- It limits the loss or corruption of sensitive data
- It limits the lateral movement of an attacker through your network
- It enables automated emergency lock-out mechanisms through security monitoring tools
Identity Governance Essentials to Improve Your Cyber Security
Omada’s next-gen identity governance (IGA) provides real-time access control to manage employees, contractors, and external identities securely, allowing for the implementation of continuous identity risk protection through conditional access and classification of data backed by a cross system access suspension workflow to effectively lock down a user’s access depending on the severity of a potential security breach. This dynamic approach will ensure that your organization is able to rely on the implemented policies and rest assured that the business is in compliance with relevant industry standards and regulations, while still providing the correct access, to the correct user, at the correct time.
