The threat is real, even to organizations with strong security measures in place. There are certain connections the business needs even though they present substantial risk. These are known as high-risk access scenarios, and they pose a challenge to companies everywhere. To prevent potentially catastrophic damage, security and IT teams urgently need greater visibility and control over these high-risk connections.
Some common high-risk access scenarios include:
Connecting third parties, like vendors, partners, and contractors, to sensitive systems is standard practice today. However, security teams have little control over these external users and their devices, making it hard to manage or monitor their access. This has led to many recent cybersecurity incidents, revealing that current tools are not enough to protect against this growing risk.
Migrating employee access can take months or even years to complete. After an M&A, giving new employees access to shared systems can leave the organization vulnerable to cyberattacks. Additionally, migrating users to cloud- based applications can leave many users frustrated by poor access policies. The common workaround of giving wide permissions to internal users can make it easier for attackers to enter and move within the network.
Operational Technology (OT) is crucial to many companies, and any interruption can lead to physical risk and lost revenue – making these systems a valuable target for cybercriminals. As OT systems become digitized and more frequently targeted by bad actors, it is important to secure every connection to keep operations running safely and smoothly.
