Wait! Where is everyone? Security in the Time of the Remote Workforce

Presented by

Vishnu Varma (Idaptive) & Senthil Palaniappan (Sennovate Inc.)

About this talk

A few months ago, security vendors were offering up cyber threat predictions for 2020 and product roadmaps indicating how solutions were evolving to address the shifting threat landscape. Market research firms were sharing revenue projections and providing guidance to end-user organizations intended to help them solidify their security strategy and budgets for the year. And then along came the coronavirus. The rapid on-set of a global pandemic has changed both the threat landscape and what organizations should be spending their security budgets on, almost overnight. An all-remote workforce opens the door to new opportunities for malicious activity by bad actors; stealing passwords and data is easier, and critical business applications are at greater risk as employees attempt to access both on-prem and cloud-based apps from home. In this webinar, Identity and Access Management (IAM) experts from Sennovate and Idaptive will address the role IAM and adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), in particular, can play in both enabling and securing the remote workforce. Adaptive MFA, based on the oh-so-important principles of Zero Trust—“never trust, always verify”—holds the keys to dramatically reducing risk and improving compliance, no matter where an organization’s employees are in the world. Best of all, adaptive MFA improves user productivity and happiness, while reducing IT and helpdesk overhead. Attendees will gain an understanding of: the new or increased threats caused by the surge in remote workers; the critical role that IAM and adaptive MFA can play in filling any security gaps that may still exist across a far-flung labor force; and the benefits of adaptive MFA, including improved user productivity and job satisfaction, and reduced IT and helpdesk burden.
