Since the onset of COVID-19, most companies have adopted a hybrid work environment where data moves from on-premises servers or the cloud to offices, homes, and other establishments with open wi-fi hot spots make enforcing access control challenges. In addition to the risk, access is available to an increasingly extensive range of devices, including PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, smart speakers, and internet of things (IoT) devices. The diversity makes it a real challenge to create and secure persistency in access policies.
Today, network access must be dynamic and fluid, supporting identity and application-based use-cases. A robust access control policy can be adapted dynamically to respond to evolving risk factors and enable a company that’s been breached to isolate the relevant employees and data resources to minimize the damage. Furthermore, enterprises must ensure that their access control technologies are consistently supported through their cloud assets and applications. Organizations must deploy security analytics layers using AI and machine learning that sit on top of the existing network and security configuration to identify threats in real-time and automate the access control rules accordingly.
