Enterprise Cloud Authentication – Connect to the Cloud in Seconds

 

Many large enterprises are looking for ways to outsource email and other applications to the cloud. A critical requirement for making cloud outsourcing migration a success is to ensure that security exposures are not increased. While cloud-based services provide many benefits, they can also significantly increase an organization’s security risks and vulnerabilities, especially if proper processes to safeguard corporate data are not implemented.

 

Welcome to Vanguard CLOUD, a powerful offering that makes it quick and easy to connect to any cloud while maintaining existing authentication and capitalizing fully on your existing skills and applications.

Continuous Monitoring

Cyber threats have become more prevalent and are increasing risks to federal information systems.

 

Today, there is a need for better, more actionable intelligence about the security status of systems. Continuous monitoring of information systems security provides organizations with near real-time information about security breaches and changes in security controls to enable them to reduce risk exposure and vulnerabilities.

 

These requirements for continuous monitoring of federal information systems deliver a higher level of cybersecurity protection and address the growing threatscape facing federal government agencies. At the same time, the need for continuous monitoring requires organizations to implement new processes and automated tools to assist them. NIST regards automation tools as important for the success of continuous monitoring.

Identity and Access Management

Securing mainframe environments is becoming an increasingly difficult task.

 

The list of challenges that organizations must address continues to grow as security systems and networks increase in size and complexity. Acquisitions and mergers just complicate these issues. Most IT security departments today struggle to meet organizational demands, especially with limited staff resources and budgets.

 

Vanguard’s Identity and Access Management software helps to streamline security administration and reporting requirements by automating manual processes and making it easier to perform day-to-day management tasks. With Vanguard software in place security administrators can do more with less and have more time to focus on those activities that require human intervention and analysis.

Multifactor Authentication

Modern multifactor authentication solutions have evolved to support new, complex technologies that change how we use data, including z/OS, cloud computing and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

 

There are so many different solutions, authentication methods, integration issues, and new security concerns cropping up in the market. With such a large diversity of vendors, it is easy for IT security decision-makers to get confused about which solution is right for their organization. Therefore, Vanguard goes the extra distance ensuring robust support for the most diverse range of token technologies.

SIEM

The need for early detection of targeted cyber attacks and data breaches is driving the requirement for SIEM support.

 

The SIEM requirement is driven by customer needs to apply security analytics to event data in real time for the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches and to collect, store, analyze, and report on log data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.

 

Vanguard’s new Active Alerts offering provides the ability to continuously monitor security related events at the system and or user-specified level. When an event occurs, Vanguard Active Alerts will notify the SIEM in order for enterprises to take decisive action and make critical business decisions.

 

SIEM is supported across the Vanguard enterprise security software suite, through our Active Alerts solution. Today we support ArcSight®, CorreLog®, LogPoint® and Splunk® offerings along with any other SIEM capable of consuming SYSLOG formatted messages.

 

The SIEM provides a holistic, unified view into not only the infrastructure but also workflow, compliance and log management. SIEM can provide a multitude of capabilities and services efficiently.

 

At the core, SIEM provides Data Aggregation, Correlation, Alerting, Dashboards, Compliance, Retention, and Forensic Analysis.
