Security White Papers

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

The amount of apps, passwords, and identities that your employees need to manage every day can really stunt productivity. IT doesn’t like it either. After all, they’re just trying to ensure the security of your enterprise but they’re often burdened with password retrieval activities when they could be focused on more value-added tasks. Because your employee have work to do, and they’re suffering from password fatigue, they resort to using passwords that circumvent security practices—inviting hackers into your enterprise data. Solutions to solve the problem are often cumbersome making a complicated problem…well, more complicated.

Doing Big Data and NoSQL in the public cloud sounds great, but at some point, someone has to write a check to make it happen. Is there a strong financial argument for making this move? Can you start small and grow larger easily? This paper answers this question with a detailed Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis for open source data management in the public cloud. Contrasting cloud deployments on the standard vs hyperscale CenturyLink Cloud stack Powered by Intel Cloud Technology, versus the on-premise analogue, the paper models the relative financial merits of each approach. The paper considers the best potential use cases for on-premise versus cloud and walks through an example use case to show the impact to business outcomes (time to results, cost, TCO). Cost factors compared include:

Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were traditionally built for a company’s internal use, to assist with manual on and off boarding, and establishing access privileges to company data and systems behind the firewall. Today though, a company must implement a dynamic IAM solution that serves employees as well as customers, partners, and devices, regardless of location. ForgeRock embraces this shift from internal, on-premises IAM to Identity Relationship Management (IRM): public-facing, secure, and accessible identity as business enabler. ForgeRock’s next-generation IRM platform is designed to empower CEOs and enterprises to engage with consumers via new revenue-generating services, while continuing to maintain our proven traditional IAM capabilities.
