Managing User Access Risks of a Distributed Workforce: The Permissions Puzzle

Presented by

Fernando Montenegro, Principal Security Analyst at 451 Research; Kate Kuehn, SVP at vArmour

About this talk

New 451 Research shows that losing control of sensitive cloud data is the top concern for information security teams. Did you know that "Rogue Robert" has unauthorized access to the company’s trading applications? Or that “Sales Susan” can access the purchase order app AND the vendor payment app in the new data center? Toxic combinations like these are difficult to spot across today’s web of interconnected applications, mixed environments, and distributed workforces. Even with proper identity access controls in place, complex application relationships can create hidden pathways between unauthorized users and sensitive data systems, exposing you to risk and regulatory consequences. Discover vArmour’s groundbreaking new approach to managing risky user-app relationships across modern environments. We’ll combine our deep expertise in Application Relationship Management with expert insights from 451 Research to show you how a simple shift in perspective - looking from applications out towards the users - enables you to overcome today’s top risk and compliance challenges.
