Challenges in Identity Security
You don’t know what you don’t know. Digital transformation brings greater agility to the business growth, but it also means more users, more apps and more data. How do you know who has access to what? Why do they need it? How do they access? What do they do with the access? How do you control their access? Manual process in managing identity lifecycle and access leads to huge integrity & compliance concern.
Your biggest asset (people) is also your biggest risk. Orphaned accounts, privilege creep and insider threat possess significant risk to organization as they are already inside your network, bypassing perimeter security and relatively having authorized access to your data.
Most of the identity initiatives are prioritized to solve operational issues rather than security. Many do not approach it as a program from holistic & sustainable perspectives to meet long term success. As a result, they are always perceived to be complex, isolated & difficult to scale further and ultimately leading to the failure.
Managing identity governance, lifecycle for onboarding, role changes and offboarding can be really challenging for most of the organizations, especially when it comes to the context of people, process and technology. No matter how talented your IT team, they remain only human.
You have an office and every employee including authorized vendors – temporary or permanent, have the access key to the office door. However, there is a room which has a safe that keeps all the valuable assets. Would you be comfortable providing everyone that has the access to your office, with the key to that safe?
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a critical component of identity and access management that verifies a user’s identity through multiple credentials. Rather than just asking for a username and password, MFA requires additional credentials such as OTP, fingerprint, or facial recognition to sign in.
“Inside good, outside bad” is no longer a right context when it comes to insider threat, because human behaviour changes all the time. Insider threat can happen when someone within the organization with legitimate access intentionally or unintentionally misuses that access to negatively impact the confidentiality, integrity or availability of organization’s critical data and system.
As part of digital transformation through cloud adoption, organization requires a way to deliver consistent security across multiple clouds and protecting everyone using their data. If your company uses Salesforce, ServiceNow, Office365, Box, Dropbox, social media, and similar popular “BYOApps”, CASB becomes the registrar, auditor, connection broker, filter and infiltration/exfiltration monitor.
Central management and reporting platform, providing automatic and continuous internal cyber security ratings of enterprise security environments.

What our customers say
The passion and expertise from Cydentiq team in identity security domain really impressed me. I really love the way how they helped us to plan and build the identity journey with their framework. It gives me a clear vision, holistic & realistic approach to get there.
“Inside good, outside bad” does not work anymore because “You don’t know what you don’t know” – insiders are ultimately the trusted people with legitimate access to your critical systems and they are already in your network everyday.
I was always in the dilemma when someone asks me a simple question “Who has access to what” until I met Cydentiq. Through the identity vulnerability assessment, I can now have the complete visibility of who has access and with what entitlements to my critical applications, remediation such as leaver’s account removal and orphaned accounts are now carried out on time to reduce the business risk.
