Privilege controls don’t have to be a productivity roadblock. Follow these tips for safer access.

Privilege Controls: Tips for Providing Access to Data

Cyber resilience depends heavily on robust identity security. Privilege controls are becoming a priority since there are so many more machine identities to manage today. It’s estimated that machine identities now outnumber human identities by a ratio of 45 to 1. The situation has expanded in the last few years, growing exponentially due to work-from-home scenarios that have played out since the onset of the pandemic. Many companies have started developing stronger policies around privilege controls.

Harnessing Control

There are a variety of solutions to consider with intelligent privilege controls. Five of the most commonly used approaches include the following:

  • Managing Credentials – Something as simple as a username and password suffice as valid evidence of identity. Most organizations already stress the importance of password hygiene in their policies, so using credential management for privilege control is a fairly organic step toward improved identity security.
  • JIT Access – Just-in-time (JIT) access can be the approach for extending specific access to various users. But the privilege is only temporary. Instead of gaining blanket access for any duration, JIT can be used to grant short-term privileges so the user can handle what needs to be done, then access is removed.
  •  Delegation – While some members, such as security managers or team leaders, have access to the most sensitive information, they can also identify the few others who can be granted similar access, but only to specific information. They delegate their authority to elevate privileges based on specific tasks.
  • Isolating Information – Proxy servers are a perfect piece of technology for routing traffic in a way that will not give hackers access to data. The user’s device is isolated from the data by the proxy server.
  • Session Monitoring – Tracking traffic is a way to flag suspicious activity. Through session monitoring, every action is recorded down to each individual click, providing information about anything happening in everything from web applications to cloud consoles.

Organizations are right to assume that at some point they will experience a breach, which is why so many have set up a strategy for how to deal with it. But it’s also important to be proactive, which is what privilege controls aim to provide. Identity security strategies are important but implementing the right solutions can be difficult, which is why outsourcing to a professional can help.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I travel to sporting events, especially golf tournaments, often. Critical to my daily operation is stable and quick connectivity as I'm constantly transmitting large volumes of images.

I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
