Top Five IT Security Threats and How to Combat Them

Best Practices From Quest Software Help Companies Improve Business Outcomes Through Smart Identity and Access Management Strategies

Faced with external security threats from hackers and others , along with a growing array of even more dangerous internal security threats, companies worldwide are feeling the heat.  Industry experts agree that strong identity and access management (IAM) technology and practices should be the cornerstone of every security strategy; but, legacy IAM offerings often are considered overly complex and difficult to maintain – a problem compounded by the advent of cloud and mobile trends affecting enterprise access. Quest Software provides a modular approach to IAM ideally suited to address a full range of security concerns. This advisory provides the top threats companies should prepare for, and specific IAM best practices they should follow to combat threats early on.

Organizations traditionally have had only two options to address identity and access management:

  1. Solving specific pains in an ad-hoc manner with system- and task-specific tools and practices from a variety of vendors.
  2.  Implementing a monolithic framework that seeks to address issues enterprise-wide through an almost entirely customized approach.

These options either are too customized and cumbersome to be sustainable, or too controlling and rigid to address today’s new market realities. Neither adequately addresses the business-driven needs that are forcing organizations into action.

There is a better way. Quest Software, with its Quest One Identity Solutions, makes security and compliance simple and effective. Unlike identity and access management solutions from legacy vendors, which require extensive and costly customization, Quest‘s modular, yet integrated, approach addresses immediate concerns, but is  nimble enough to tackle future business needs – with an eye firmly on simplifying some of the most complex challenges organizations face today.
