Strategy and Research Officer Jonathan Sander to present “Customer Success Stories on Extending IAM into Unstructured Data”
HAWTHORNE, NJ, November 24, 2014 – STEALTHbits Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of data security solutions for unstructured data, announced today that Jonathan Sander, STEALTHbits’ Strategy & Research Officer, will be speaking at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit in Las Vegas. The company will also exhibit throughout the conference starting Tuesday, Dec. 2.
Sander will present “Customer Success Stories on Extending IAM into Unstructured Data” at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 3. Summit attendees who would like to learn more about STEALTHbits’ capabilities and IAM integrations are invited to visit the company in Booth 122 on the exhibit hall floor.
Specializing in unstructured data governance and other data security solutions, STEALTHbits has partnered with many of the industry’s leading Identity & Access Management providers to integrate access entitlements from File System and SharePoint resources directly into existing IAM platform workflows.
“Executives are taking note that nearly every data breach has two things in common: administrator access and unsecured files. Often these breaches are specifically about administrators’ access to poorly secured files. But data is also flowing out of organizations at a staggering pace through hacking and employee bad habits,” explained Sander.
He added, “Organizations can no longer afford broad brush security policies. They will need to establish specific controls and detailed policies that target every level of the IT world. Some of this will be fine tuning of systems like DLP and IAM. Much of it will be completely new, such as locking down all unstructured data and building in adaptive authentication. If the pace and scale of organizations adopting programs to gain visibility and control over unstructured data continues, it will be as common as firewalls before 2015 is done.”
For the majority of the applications, IAM solutions are a powerful and effective means to control access. However, 80% any organization’s data is unstructured, residing in documents, spreadsheets, and presentations stored in data repositories such as file systems and NAS devices. Access to those resources is managed through a combination of Active Directory groups, file permissions and local access policies. Getting IAM to manage 100% of your data means giving it visibility into that data.
By discovering the massive amount of unstructured data across your organization, much of which will contain sensitive and proprietary information, STEALTHbits is able to create a single, consolidated entitlement store, identify who owns the data, who has access to the data and how. Through direct integration with the leading IAM platforms, organizations can extend the reach of their IAM solution beyond applications, allowing them to provision, review and revoke access to unstructured data easily, seamlessly, and reliably.
