As a part of its annual listing of the top 10 security projects that have combined risk management with business productivity, Gartner has again come up with a list of high impact security projects recommended by Gartner analysts, during the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit 2020.
With a focus on enabling business continuity while reducing risk, Gartner lay down the top security projects that companies must prioritise to implement, in the light of persistent issues like securing remote workforces becoming ‘the single greatest existential imperative for organisations in the wake of 2019’
One of the major challenges for companies, as described by Senior Director Analyst, Brian Reed, was the problem of surplus access and trust, and due to the shockwaves sent forth by the pandemic, it became imperative for companies to craft a zero trust strategy which empowers organisations to extend secure access of their applications to remote workforces operating both managed and unmanaged devices.
This year’s 10 security projects in focus include:
- Securing Remote Workforces
- Risk Based Vulnerability Management
- Extended Detection and Response
- Cloud Security Posture Management
- Simplify Cloud Access Controls
- Passwordless Authentication
- Data Classification and Protection
- Workforce Competency Assessment
- Automating Security Risk Assessment
With an unprecedented move to remote work models, a number of security vulnerabilities have been detected in modern security technologies like Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, Remote Desktop Protocol, and VPNs. Given that most organizations’ security postures were built around the notion of remote work being an exception, the present scenario has thrown up multiple security challenges. To solve these challenges, Gartner analysts recommend implementing and operationalising a Zero Trust Approach to security.
Mr Brian Reed recommended a list of 14 vendors that could potentially help organizations in crafting a zero trust strategy with their security solutions. InstaSafe was part of the coveted list of 14 vendors, which also included mega corporations like Microsoft, Google Cloud, and CISCO.
