Manage Access and Identity with Ease


Businesses have invested tremendous time and money ensuring that remote workers can access applications and data from any device at any time – whether that data lives in the organization’s on-premises data center behind traditional security defenses or in the cloud.  Due to COVID, many businesses had to make mobility happen – almost overnight. 

Unfortunately, threat actors know this as well. They are targeting users with malware, phishing and social engineering scams on potentially vulnerable BYOD or new, not-properly-secured devices. Breaches that result in the theft of valid credentials are on the rise.

Solution

In this age of breach, identity and access management (IAM) — a foundational element of a Zero Trust strategy – makes it safer for users to access apps and data from their connected devices, whether those devices are BYOD smartphones and tablets or whether they are new, work-owned laptops set up on a kitchen table. IAM lets companies harden defenses against attack even when something as nebulous as people and their mobile devices are the new perimeter.

Specifically, IAM is about defining and managing the roles and access privileges of individual users — this includes customers, contractors, suppliers, and partners as well as employees — and the context in which users are granted (or denied) those privileges.

IAM involves a lot of “rights.” Work with Structured to provide the right people, with the right level of access, to the right resources, in the right context in a centralized technology framework that is automated for continuous assessment and management.
