One-size-fits-all access security isn’t ideal for any organization. Applications and APIs have different levels of risk associated with the services and data to which they provide access. Even within individual resources, certain URLs and transaction types contain different risk profiles. Other considerations include environmental risks such as geolocation and IP address, user risks like group membership and seniority, and device risks such as device health and reputation. Leveraging identity attributes to ensure users are only authorized to access resources under the appropriate circumstances greatly improves enterprise security.
Flexible Access for Today and Tomorrow
Legacy WAM systems weren’t designed to support the complex requirements of today’s enterprises. These proprietary solutions lack the flexibility to integrate new technologies, resulting in complicated architectures that are slow and costly to maintain. Adding support for new architectures and protocols requires an access security solution that leverages your current investments while also taking advantage of the latest technologies.
Modern access management solutions were designed to work with legacy WAM systems to enhance security, centralize management and improve system performance. Using modern access control, organizations can support both legacy and modern applications, while architecting the infrastructure to meet their needs either in the cloud or on-premises.
