Identity is the New Attack Surface

In an era where cyber threats are continually evolving and authorization has become siloed across legacy and homegrown solutions, managing visibility of how access is mapped between users and digital assets a challenge. As environments become more complex, and threats become more sophisticated, enterprises are not able to apply Identity-first security to access down to the data layer, nor apply contextual signals to access decisions post log-in.

Enterprises are in need of a standardized approach to their access control that will enhance their security and business agility.


Enhance Identity Security Posture

Security professionals can improve their enterprise security posture by externalizing Authorization, centralizing its management, and standardizing access control approach for their technology stack. Additionally, enterprises can minimize risk and prevent unauthorized access to data by injecting dynamic risk signals from multiple sources in real time and applying Identity-first security with dynamic real-time/runtime and fine-grained authorization.

This multifaceted strategy enhances the overall security posture, allowing for more responsive and adaptive measures in the face of evolving cyber threats and complex regulatory environments.
