Censornet launches integrated IDaaS to enhance identity-aware, context-based security

Tight integration of IDaaS into Censornet’s platform elevates its autonomous security capability and gives organisations intelligent affordable control of authentication.

Censornet is introducing integrated identity as a service (IDaaS) into its intelligent cybersecurity platform. The launch strengthens its offering to organisations and gives them total control over user access through integration with its established Web Security, Cloud Application Security (CASB), Email Security and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solutions.

The integration of IDaaS with Censornet’s intelligent security platform enables powerful rules that govern who, when and from where access to what applications is granted. Unlike standalone IDaaS solutions, Censornet’s offering connects natively with its full suite of web, cloud application security, email security and MFA products. As a result, organisations can quickly and simply apply identity-aware, context-based security to their whole ecosystem, without having to manage multiple vendors and attempt to manually integrate solutions.

“The pandemic sounded the death knell for the traditional perimeter. Today, context is the new perimeter, and identity is the killer context,” said Ed Macnair, CEO at Censornet. “With our autonomous security, we protect mid-market organisations faster and smarter than humanly possible. The integration of IDaaS into our intelligent platform helps organisations support Zero Trust initiatives on their journey towards SASE, where identity is more important than ever.”

By integrating IDaaS with CASB and MFA, Censornet’s IDaaS offering lets organisations automatically authenticate users based on the richest possible contextual information, all while enabling single sign-on (SSO). This removes the risk of weak or reused passwords being used across corporate applications, replacing passwords entirely with more secure tokens and assertions. An added benefit of single sign-on is improved employee productivity, and the elimination of support costs associated with password resets.

Censornet’s integrated IDaaS gives organisations full assurance that every single action is tied to a specific identity – from access to files and data through to enabling downloads from cloud-based applications.

Macnair continued: “While the market has many standalone IDaaS offerings, our integrated solution ensures automated identity checks are based on highly granular data drawn from across the security ecosystem. Just as importantly, our native integration in a single platform means stretched security teams don’t have to manually weave IDaaS into third-party systems – they can simply set their own rules, then plug and play.”

A new report from the Capgemini Research Institute finds that 51% of industrial organizations believe that the number of cyberattacks on smart factories is likely to increase over the next 12 months. Yet nearly half (47%) of manufacturers say cybersecurity in their smart factories is not a C-level concern. According to the Capgemini report, ‘Smart & Secure: Why smart factories need to prioritize cybersecurity’, few manufacturers have mature practices across the critical pillars of cybersecurity. The connected nature of smart factories is exponentially increasing the risks of attacks in the Intelligent Industry era.

With an unprecedented number of employees now working in hybrid or fully remote environments, compounded by an increase in cyber threats and a more overwhelmed, COVID-19 information fatigued workforce, there has never been a more critical time to effectively create and maintain a cyber-secure workforce and an engaged security culture.
Arcserve has published the first in a series of findings of its annual independent global research study on current experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers (ITDMs) around data protection and recovery. Key findings from the research show that ransomware attacks continue to impact organisations worldwide with high costs, but they are still largely unprepared. With 50% of respondents targeted with ransomware attacks, the research indicates the critical need for companies to take a new approach to data resilience that fortifies disaster recovery strategies, backup systems, and immutable storage solutions to prevent the loss of mission-critical data.
A survey of WAN managers has revealed that multi-factor authentication and single sign-on are the top zero trust features implemented.
