Ping Identity, Netskope, Threatmetrix and Vmware Form Alliance to Put Identity at the Center of Security
Oct 21 15
Ping Identity together with AirWatch®, Netskope and ThreatMetrix launched the Identity Defined Security Alliance, which provides enterprises with a unified approach that places identity at the center of security. The Identity Defined Security Alliance provides a new blueprint for CISOs to design a comprehensive identity defined security platform, including best practices for integrating these best-of-breed security solutions. As mobility and the cloud make enterprises truly borderless, a new generation of enterprise security is disrupting the old guard. Those who focus on protecting singular elements of the modern enterprise, such as endpoints, cloud apps, networks or email, are not fully equipped to manage data created by the growing array of devices, systems and workflows. The Identity Defined Security Alliance’s vision is to make identity the linchpin of CIOs’ security strategies, keeping their data safe by making it accessible to the right people at the right time. By focusing on authenticating user identity versus protecting the endpoint, enterprises can be more agile and provide secure access to anything, anywhere. Specifically, enterprises that leverage the Identity Defined Security Alliance can address every aspect of identity and access security, including authentication and directory services, threat and fraud detection services, cloud governance and enterprise mobility management. By collaborating on product integration, deployment best practices and joint selling, the Identity Defined Security Alliance will accelerate time-to-value for customers on their investments. The Identity Defined Security Alliance’s comprehensive platform includes the following features: Identity federation and single sign-on; Contextual, multi-factor authentication; Web and API access security; Enterprise mobility management; Cloud access security brokering; Identity, behavior and threat analytics and endpoint security management.
Netskope Extends DLP Frameworks to the Cloud with New Reference Architecture
Sep 14 15
Netskope announced a new reference architecture for data loss prevention (DLP) in the cloud, a framework designed to help organizations more accurately find sensitive content in the cloud and integrate more efficiently with on-premises DLP solutions. Through the Cloud DLP Reference Architecture, Netskope aims to spark a collaborative approach with cloud app, data classification, on-premises DLP, incident response and identity management providers on how existing DLP should be done when data finds its way to the cloud. Enterprise assets are increasingly moving from applications deployed in private data centers to public cloud services. Matched with this trend is a shift in data access patterns as access locations change from campus locations to nearly everywhere, in part due to the proliferation of smartphones and tablets. As enterprise assets continue to move from applications deployed in private data centers to public cloud services, organizations need a way to extend DLP frameworks to include cloud services and accommodate these new access patterns to effectively protect corporate intellectual property and sensitive data. In developing the Cloud DLP Reference Architecture, Netskope outlined six key tenets, which include: Derive context from cloud service transactions and set policy based on it before moving to the next stage of data identification: Reduce the scope of content inspect en route to or from, or at rest in, the cloud by using cloud service transaction context such as identity, location, device, or activity. Specifically, stop activities (regardless of data type) that are non-conforming. Use a classification framework to identify or categorize sensitive content: Use a classification framework to identify or categorize sensitive content. Apply persistent metadata to maintain that data identity as content moves to and from cloud services. Apply data classification to discover sensitive content in the cloud: Inspect content en route to or from, or at rest in, cloud services in order to determine if that content is sensitive. Allow conforming content to remain or pass by unencumbered. Quarantine and redirect potentially sensitive content to an on-premises DLP solution: To ensure a high quality user experience, quarantine remaining content and notify the user. Redirect content to an on-premises DLP solution via secure Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP) to evaluate against highly-tuned policies in order to determine violations. Enforce policies and initiate incident response: Enforce policy actions and initiate incident response workflows in applicable solutions, whether they are on-premises and/or in the cloud, based on ICAP responses from on-premises DLP solutions, together with the context derived from the cloud service transactions. Ensure user accountability: Ensure user accountability by coaching users on potential violations and allowing them to provide feedback.
