In our rapidly evolving technology landscape, the insider threat is a growing problem. Collaboration tools, cloud and mobile computing have significantly increased the risks faced by organisations. A report by Cybersecurity Insiders and CA Technologies recently stated that ninety percent of organisations feel vulnerable to insider attacks.
Not all insider threats are malicious, though. Accidental data breaches caused by careless employees or negligence account for more than 50% of all data loss incidents from inside the network. Organisations storing or accessing confidential data must take action to reduce the risks of losing data from within the confines of company systems.
So, what can you as a business leader do to protect your most important information? The short answer is you need to take a holistic approach to information security. The soon-to-be-implemented GDPR will force organisations to get their data protection house in order, presenting opportunities to do better business.
We are gearing up to attend Scotland’s largest Cyber Security event, ScotSecure at Edinburgh’s Dynamic Earth next week. Two of Scotland’s security software powerhouses, Zonefox and My1Login will be joining us as we aim to help business leaders protect their networks from the inside and the outside.
About Zonefox and My1Login
In case you have been out of the country with no access to the Internet for the past few years, Zonefox and My1login are two of Scotland’s leading lights in the cybersecurity software space.
Protect your network with Zonefox
Zonefox has developed award-winning insider threat protection software that provides a 360-degree view of your network by monitoring every endpoint and every user 24/7. So, whether your employees are working remotely or third parties are accessing and sharing information they shouldn’t be, you will know about it.
Zonefox’s Augmented Intelligence automatically detects when a users’ behaviour changes and it can quickly spot when compromised user accounts are being used to harvest valuable IP and confidential data.
With Zonefox, network administrators have access to detailed forensics, enabling them to answer critical questions about an incident: Where did the incident take place? Who was the perpetrator? What did they take? Where did the data go?
Having answers to these questions not only helps find a quick resolution to data loss incidents, but it also helps organisations comply with data breach notifications – a significant element of GDPR obligations.
Protect your applications with My1Login
Glasgow-based My1Login is a European leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions.
The security software provider has won multiple awards, including Identity and Access Management Solution of the Year at the recent Computing Security Awards. They are also an approved UK Government Supplier through G-Cloud 9.
My1Login is the UK’s most secure and most widely-compatible IAM solution that enables organisations to mitigate password-related cyber-security risks, strengthen identity assurance and meet critical compliance obligations such as GDPR. Its Single Sign-On solution integrates with all app types – web apps, mobile apps, flash apps, virtualised apps, and even legacy, thick-client apps and mainframes. Passwords can be updated automatically without revealing credentials, and the IT department can provision new users and manage My1Login via Active Directory (AD), simplifying user management at a stroke.
My1Login SSO also integrates with multi-factor authentication services, further securing employees’ access to corporate applications.
