A good example is the team of non-IT employees who require the ability to collaborate and share project files.  Put yourself in their shoes.  The option we’d like them to take is to ask IT for an appropriate location to store all their files, such as a SharePoint site. This could be made accessible only when they’re on the network, so, if anyone on the project leaves the organization (terminates or resigns to work for a competitor), they immediately lose access to that site, since they’re no longer on the network.  This could take some time, and require approvals, further explanations and justification (or, in the eyes of the end user, “red tape”). 

Achieving IT security today is akin to seeking the Holy Grail. We spend heavily on security software and compliance processes, and yet hear weekly of yet another company losing corporate emails or customers’ personally identifiable information to disgruntled insiders or increasingly sophisticated hackers.

With the explosion of mobility and cloud, corporate IT no longer controls data access and data sharing. But IT security is possible today. In this slideshow, Quest Software will explore the challenges of securing today’s computing environment, while discussing “closed-loop identity and access governance” — a model to secure your organization’s most valuable asset, its data. This includes intellectual property such as trade secrets, research data, customer information, and privileged communications.
