Take Control of Your Data

Identity and Access Management

DevilDog Cybersecurity specializes in Identity and Access Management. Our team is comprised of numerous subject matter experts including engineers with extensive technical background along with Masters' Degrees, and PhDs in cybersecurity. Our engineering team has a large depth of knowledge and field of experience in securely implementing comprehensive access management solutions while adhering to various frameworks. Our technical team can implement a robust access management solution to meet most timelines for any industry or compliance framework. Most of our solutions can be implemented within three months depending on complexity.

Why do I need access management?

Our access management system effectively manages and enforces user authentication and authorization policies across multiple systems and applications. We provide granular control over user access, allowing you to define role-based permissions and implement strong authentication mechanisms such as multi-factor authentication (MFA). This reduces the risk of unauthorized access and strengthens your overall security posture.

Compliance with government frameworks is a top priority for DevilDog Cybersecurity. Our access management solution is designed to address the specific requirements of these certifications. We offer features such as robust audit and reporting capabilities, which enable you to demonstrate compliance and meet regulatory obligations. Our team works closely with yours to ensure that all necessary controls are in place to satisfy the certification requirements.

At DevilDog Cybersecurity, we understand the importance of effective access management controls in safeguarding your business. Our collaborative approach, combined with our expertise in delivering tailored access management solutions, sets us apart as the go-to company for corporations seeking top-notch cybersecurity services. Contact us today to discuss your specific needs and discover how our access management solution can enhance your organization's security posture.

How Can IAM Prevent a Cyber Attack?

Automating the Access Privilege Provision

Every new employee needs to be assigned privileges based on their roles and business rules. You can automate this process workflow. This automation for every employee resignation or termination, ensure that all the privileges will be taken away automatically. This practice will limit and prevent unnecessary privileges.

Privileged Account Controls

State-sponsored and organized attacks target the most privileged accounts of an organization. Once these accounts get compromised, it escalates the opportunities for a massive security breach. Phishing attacks and social engineering are some common methods of deceiving privileged users into sharing their access passwords. These attacks can remain undetected for a long time. A robust set of controls on these accounts can help in deter the compromise of privileged accounts.

Frequent Change in Passwords

Company staff should be asked to frequently change their passwords. This should be made compulsory for privilege account holders and administrators. This frequent change of passwords protects a company from undetected breaches.

Strong Password Policy

By increasing the complexity of a password, a company can improve its breach ability. Companies can prevent the use of weak passwords by enforcing mandatory use of special characters, numbers, capital letters, etc. These practices can help prevent a brute-force attack.

Use of Multi-Factor Authentication

By adding an additional layer in security precautions, makes a cybercriminal’s job difficult. Using One Time Password (OTP), token, and smart card for multi-factor authentication reinforces the security infrastructure.

Rotation of Encryption Keys

By rotating encryption keys for databases can lessen the risk of identity theft. DevilDog recommends this practice whenever a breach is suspected. The rotation of encryption keys should be scheduled regularly.

Removal of Orphan Accounts

Any inactive/unmanaged accounts are a potential threat. By deleting/removing these accounts from the servers will help prevent a cyber-attack. Idle accounts and servers can be used for fraudulent activities. Scheduling a routine scan with a report for identifying inactive accounts will help in mitigate this risk.

Key Benefits of Identity and Access Management in Cybersecurity

The four primary functions of identity and access management are the basis of how IAM can benefit an organization.

Pure Identity Function

The pure identity function is about creating, managing, and deleting the identified users to change the status of their access privileges. A ‘pure identity’ is represented by a set of axioms in a given namespace, which is generally associated with real-world entities.

Service Function

As companies add new services for internal and external users, the need for identity management becomes critical. Identity management has been separated from application functions. This separation helps in monitoring/managing a single digital identity of a person. This can then be associated with his/her different activities. IAM is also evolving to control device access.

User Access (Log On) Function

The User Access Function permits users to assume a digital identity and to communicate with all the access controls. By using a single digital identity across different platforms streamlines the administrator’s workload. This simplifies the ability to monitor, verify, and manage the access of clients.

Identity Federation

Under this arrangement, one or more systems combine to form a single centralized system. This system then permits users to log in after authenticating it against the participating systems. This configuration is based on trust among all the participating systems. This configuration is often known as the “Circle of Trust.” Identity federation has two dedicated systems – Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP). When users request access to services, IdP first authenticates users to permit use of services controlled by the SP. For that, a secure assertion, SAML assertions, is sent from IdP to SP. This statement verifies if users are reliable or not.
