Managing the Risks of Third-Party Access: Why Old Model Security Solutions Aren’t Stopping Data Breaches

Chances are we’ve yet to hear the last of breaches tied to credential theft – whether it’s third-party or employee credentials.  This paper explains how organizations can change their security practices to not only better secure access, but also limit damage if bad actors find their way into your networks.

Infographic: Simplify AWS Security with a User-Centric Approach

With 1 million active customers, AWS is the clear leader in cloud services. Yet controlling user access to AWS resources is a consistent problem. If organizations don’t address this, they risk serious security and compliance issues that can impact the business.

The problem is that AWS Security Groups fall short – they’re static and IP address-based. Trying to control “who can access what” with static IP address and port mapping just doesn’t scale in today’s dynamic AWS environments.

Relying on AWS Security Groups leads to:

  • Over privileged users
  • Unmanaged vulnerabilities
  • Never-ending firewall and ACL configuration work

The bottom line is that with AWS security groups, your team can’t meet security or compliance needs. Fortunately, there is a new and better way to secure access to AWS with AppGate XDP.

After the Perimeter: How a ‘Segment of One’ Simplifies and Improves Security

Many recent headlines have highlighted the fact that the traditional perimeter-based approach to network security has failed to adequately protect organizations, and that a new approach is needed. This white paper examines the traditional approach to network security, and why it can no longer effectively be used in today’s environment. It also offers a new approach to network access based on a ‘segment of one’ that can simplify and improve your security.

Infographic: AppGate’s context aware, dynamic approach to secure access

AppGate Secure Access makes the application/server infrastructure effectively “invisible.” It then delivers access to authorized resources only, verifying a number of user variables each session—including device posture and identity—before granting access to an application. Once the user logs out, the secure tunnel disappears. Additionally, when a new device is on a public network, or a device that failed to log in tries to connect, additional security requirements (such as multi-factor authentication) can be enforced, or access can be denied.Download our infographic on AppGate’s context aware, dynamic approach to secure access to learn more.

Addressing Auditors Compliance Requirements with Secure Access

Regulatory compliance is a critical concern for many organizations. However, implementing the proper security controls and demonstrating compliance places a considerable burden on system administrators and can become very costly. Compliance with regulations, such as SOX, FISMA, PCI, FSA and SCC has always been challenging, but is especially difficult when adherence to multiple regulations is required.
