SailPoint Survey Confirms Enterprises Recognize the Importance of Extending Identity Governance to Files
According to a survey conducted by SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL), the leader in enterprise identity governance , the majority (65 percent) of enterprises polled acknowledge the importance of governing access to data stored in files as part of their overall identity governance strategy. SailPoint polled attendees at this week’s Gartner IAM Summit in London in an informal survey, and the results confirmed this important and growing trend in identity governance.
“At the same Gartner event last year, we polled attendees on their readiness to comply with GDPR,” said Kevin Cunningham, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-founder for SailPoint. “As part of that discussion, we informally asked attendees about governing access to files and found that about 40 percent viewed that as part of their identity governance strategy, so this year’s increase to 65 percent is significant. It’s great to see that we’re trending upwards as more organizations understand the importance of governing access to all applications and all data, no matter where that data lives in their infrastructure. Especially in Europe, as these same organizations spent the last year developing a strategy for GDPR compliance, I think they quickly realized that governing access to files was critical to their identity strategy.”
The risks associated with data stored in files like documents, spreadsheets, presentations and PDFs are significant. The vast majority of this data is created, extracted or downloaded by individual employees and is stored and shared from a variety of locations, often outside the purview of the IT department. Failure to secure this sensitive data stored in files not only increases the number of exposure points in the event of a data breach, but it also increases regulatory risk.
New privacy regulations, including GDPR that goes into effect in May 2018, have introduced stringent requirements for handling personal data and established harsh penalties for failure to adequately secure it. For example, if an employee downloads a document containing customers’ personally identifiable information (PII) from a sales tool and emails that document to a colleague, that PII now exists outside of a protected structured system – a system that usually lives behind the corporate firewall with strong security and identity controls in place – exposing the enterprise to risk and violating regulations like GDPR.
“At SailPoint, we work with mid-market and large enterprises, and protecting sensitive data stored in files is a top priority for our customers. The most effective way to protect this data is to govern access to it,” said Paul Trulove, Senior Vice President of SecurityIQ. “Identity teams have quickly realized that doing so improves security and ensures compliance with regulations like GDPR. Enterprises need to govern all digital identities, across all applications and data, and they cannot afford to leave data out of their identity programs. This week’s survey confirms that IT leaders realize that.”
SailPoint’s identity governance platform enables organizations to discover where sensitive data resides, establish access controls, and gain real-time visibility across on-premises and cloud storage systems, which helps companies better address strict regulations like GDPR. With a holistic identity governance program, identity practitioners can better address security threats, more confidently ensure compliance, and empower the business by making sure the right people have the right access to the right information.

The 2018 IDN World Report Findings Show Negative IDN Growth in 201725.9.2018 14:24 | Tiedote
The 2018 IDN World Report findings have been published to idnworldreport.eu. The major findings from the report are: As at December 2017, 7.5 million IDNs were registered, a drop of 14% since December 2016. A major factor in the reduction in global IDN numbers was a change of policy by the Vietnam ccTLD, which resulted in a loss of nearly 1 million .vn second level IDNs. Excluding the impact of .vn, the underlying trend is negative growth of -5%, distributed mainly across second level ccTLDs. IDNs comprise 2% of the world’s domains, a percentage that has remained fairly static since at least 2012. The data in this report include IDNs across both ccTLDs and gTLDs, both at the first and second level. Distribution patterns of IDN registrations are different from those of traditional, ASCII domain names. IDN registrations are highest in Asia and Pacific region. The script of IDNs registered throughout the world strongly correlate to the languages spoken in different countries and territori

Brentwood Borough Council Stays Ahead of the Game with UniPrint/Azure Cloud Print Solution25.9.2018 12:18 | Tiedote
UniPrint.net announced today their successful secure cloud print deployment with Brentwood Borough Council in Essex, UK. In 2016, the Council released a report entitled “Vision for Brentwood, 2016-2019”. In it, they outlined their goals to better the lives of their constituents, and those goals included reducing costs and streamlining services. After examining their existing infrastructure, they made the decision to become the 1st UK council to move 100% of its systems and infrastructure to the cloud. “We wanted to create a very easy delivery of people’s desktops no matter where they were, whether it was a coffee shop, their home, or one of our sites,” said Tim Huggins, ICT Manager at Brentwood Borough Council. This presented a multitude of challenges, but one of the biggest was printing. “We approached our common provider,” said Huggins. “But it became quite evident very quickly that they had no solution, and we were way ahead of the game with our concepts and what we were trying to d
