With data privacy regulations, threats from hackers and unscrupulous competitors, and the simple need to protect your organization's assets and reputation, it's never been more important to find a network security solution that actually delivers on what it claims.

The Trusted ID is Becoming Central to IT Cybersecurity

The latest technology trends and best practices in advanced authentication have evolved way beyond passwords. The way that employees, customers, partners and others access systems and data is driving change in how IT cybersecurity professionals create strong, safe, protected environments. As businesses move to the mobile enterprise and customers conduct more of their business on-the-go, risk-based authentication solutions are becoming one of the best options. This is especially true for Zero Trust environments and trusted digital IDs.

Healthcare Providers: Managing Workplace Violence and Patient Visitors Go Hand-in-Hand

Workplace violence is on the rise in the U.S., with hospital employees being common targets of assault and other attacks.

In this article, we’ll explore the impact to healthcare employees, the best ways to monitor and control visitors, and how to improve safety for hospital employees, patients, visitors and others.

Machine Learning: A Stepping Stone to AI-Led Security

The digital transformation of security is happening now. IoT, cloud, and mobile technologies are providing new solutions for our security challenges; they also add to the already very complex security landscape. New attack vectors, social engineering, and malicious technologies are rapidly increasing in sophistication and approach. How do we stay ahead of the curve, combining robust preventative methods with proactive identity and access management to ensure our workplace and data are protected?

Why You Should Consider FIDO Universal 2-Factor Authentication

Most IT and cybersecurity professionals have at least occasional anxiety about when the next major virus, ransomware or swarm bot will hit. With the bulk of data breaches occurring at the network perimeter—as users get their emails and go online—user authentication software is a primary concern.

The Role of PKI and Credential Management in Modern Authentication

While we enjoy the business opportunities, productivity gains and user conveniences of our data-driven economy, we certainly do not enjoy the cost and devastation of having accounts hacked, clients’ data stolen or employees’ identities misused.

Citizen Authentication and Mobility

State governments, municipalities and other local agencies can sometimes struggle with authenticating their citizens, particularly in an increasingly mobile world. Effective identity and access management is vital to protecting sensitive data but must be balanced against the need for citizens to have access to their own information.

October is National Cybersecurity Month

As a collaborative effort between the government and the cybersecurity industry, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is held every October. The educational month helps raise awareness of how businesses and individuals can protect themselves online. With criminals, hackers, and other bad actors continually developing how they attack and gain access to systems and data, we must educate ourselves on the best ways to defend against it.
