April 1, 2021
  • Adopt widespread BYOD and shadow IT assets 
  • Proliferate large amounts of sensitive data and files  
  • And constantly switch between work and personal assets  
  • It makes users more vigilant while they work.
  • It teaches users red flags to report or avoid.
  • It turns users into stakeholders for security.
  1. It must limit the number of times that users subvert policy by getting out of their way and allowing them to complete their work without obstruction.
  2. It must reduce the volume and severity of incidents that users will generate when they invariably make mistakes and subvert policy.
  3. It must rapidly detect, investigate and learn from the incidents that still occur.
  1. User Behavior Monitoring to set a baseline for normal behavior and to only intervene when you notice a significant aberration.
  2. Asset Discovery and Inventory to find and account for all of your users’ BYOD and shadow IT assets.
  3. Data Risk and Privacy Monitoring to find all instances of sensitive data and files that your users have proliferated.
  1. Configuration Management to enforce access rights and security settings on all assets.
  2. Zero Trust to add identity inspection and authentication touchpoints that raise the barrier to entry into your environment.
  3. Fundamental IT Hygiene to reduce vulnerabilities in the environment for attackers to exploit and move laterally between.
  1. Continuous Visibility to detect incidents as soon as they occur.
  2. Incident Response to remediate incidents before they cause harm.
  3. Remote Control to close all instances of the vulnerabilities that attackers exploited in your environment.
