Access security is a framework of policies and technologies that combine to manage the access that users have to an organisation’s sensitive IT assets. Strong access security brings a number of benefits, including stronger cybersecurity, better compliance with regulations and more control over external devices accessing an organisation’s network and data.

A modern business needs to protect itself from threats that exist both inside and outside its walls. Access security gives businesses the tools they need to see exactly who is accessing their resources, and then control those users’ privilege levels.

This white paper forms a comprehensive beginner’s guide for anyone looking to understand the basics of access security.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn and understand the three processes that are key to this managing access security: identification, authentication and authorisation
  • Find out why the Zero Trust model and the principle of Least Privilege are two concepts that are vital to strong access security
  • Assess the specific systems that businesses can employ to apply the concepts of identity management, privileged access management and endpoint privilege management
