Identity governance

challenges

Traditional identity and access management (IAM) frameworks are expensive to build and time-consuming to implement and maintain. They are burdens on most IT departments, as IT typically handles all user identity lifecycle management. To meet the varied IAM needs of different business units, IT often works with a siloed set of narrowly focused tools and security policies and relies on manual processes for enforcement.

This leaves the environment vulnerable, increases risk and makes it difficult to meet SLAs. You can increase productivity by giving users access to the data and applications they need to do their jobs – and nothing more. In this way, you can mitigate risk, secure data, meet uptime requirements and satisfy compliance by giving users access to data and applications they need. Now, identity and access management (IAM) can be driven by business needs, not by IT capabilities.

  1. Hackers shift their interest to APIs.

    The amount of sensitive data exposed via APIs is increasing significantly, making APIs a primary target for attackers. They’ve started to look for vulnerable, broken APIs to find ways to the back-end systems that store sensitive data. And they are becoming increasingly successful. Many recent huge data breaches have leveraged APIs – just think of the Salesforce.com, US Post, T-Mobile and Strava incidents.
  2. Traditional security solutions are insufficient

    Today’s API attacks are increasingly complex, targeted and easily bypass traditional security solutions. These attacks CANNOT be detected by signature-based web application firewalls (WAFs), authentication or other baseline security tools. Advanced API attacks can only be prevented by targeted solutions. Without this knowledge in mind, businesses may expose their core systems data with a false sense of security.
  3. API developers work without focusing on security

    Security is not a priority for many application development projects: they focus on the functional specification, user experience and deadlines. Often, security requirements are not specified in detail in these projects. Developers don’t think like attackers. As there are no API-standards, they only deal with security on a best-effort basis. This practice leads to unique vulnerabilities in public-facing APIs, which in turn creates risk for the business and opportunities for the bad guys.
  4. Regulations require secure API communication

    PSD2 requires banks to open their APIs directly to retailers and third-party payment providers (TPP or fintech). GDPR indirectly requires the anonymization or pseudo-anonymization of personal data in transit. The PCI DSS requires financial providers to encrypt transmission of cardholder data via public networks, etc.  All these regulations have one key requirement in common: companies must protect customers’ data at rest and also in transit. To meet these criteria, regulated industries like finance or public services must start thinking about how to secure the sensitive data flow via their public-facing APIs.
