Access Management

Credentials are the keys to your networks, your applications, and increasingly the API backend of those applications. Preventing unauthorized access is critical to protecting your intellectual property and your data.

ACCESS ATTACKS AND BUSINESS CHALLENGES

Understanding how apps enable user access—and how apps can be compromised by attackers--can help you streamline processes and meet user expectations while also helping you prevent attacks.


Credential theft

Most users or customers with a compromised device won’t know they’re infected with malware. A simple username and password required for authentication can be easily stolen by malware-controlled web browsers, and then used to take over a user account.



Brute force

An attacker tries multiple username and password combinations, often using a dictionary of words or commonly used passwords or passphrases, in an attempt to gain unauthorized access to an app or website.



Credential stuffing

A more focused and successful variation of brute force attacks, credential stuffing is the automated injection of previously breached username and password pairs to gain access and take over user accounts. These attacks are fueled by the billions of usernames and passwords that have been stolen in various breaches and can be bought on the darknet. It’s no secret that users frequently re-use passwords across multiple apps or websites, making this attack easier for bad actors to execute.

Decentralized authentication

Fragmented identities and decentralized apps introduce significant risk because of the challenges of enforcing security policies across Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud, and on-premises applications. Centralizing authentication with identity federation can ease the burden on users and administrators.



Access management complexity

With the explosion of applications we use to streamline business operations, user access needs are constantly changing. Manually granting and revoking access at multiple access control points adds management overhead and makes timely access enforcement a challenge. Centralizing access policies can ensure faster enforcement and allow for endpoint health checks, as well as mobile device management (MDM) integration.



Poor user experience

Users expect to easily connect to apps from anywhere and on any device. Forcing users to first connect to the company’s internal network can be frustrating when connecting from a variety of device types. Improve security, user experience, and reduce your admin burden by having consistent access policies that focus on user identity, device health, and app context.
