RSA 2019 is right around the corner. The most exciting security conference of the year – apart from OpenText™ Enfuse of course – RSA is a chance for us to meet our customers, hear first-hand about their security challenges and educate them on the solutions we provide.
At OpenText, we build secure solutions for the connected and intelligent enterprise, because that’s what we are and that’s who we care about.
This year, we are coming to RSA focused on three major problems:
- Connected and intelligent enterprises need faster detection and response that can work at scale
- In a world of connected everything, the enterprise must manage the digital identity of people, systems and things
- Enterprises need real AI and ML to unlock insights faster and achieve better security outcomes
Visit us at booth #6358 in Moscone North Hall for more, but we’ll start with a sneak preview.
Meeting the need for Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) at enterprise scale
The key to effectively containing an incident is faster detection. EDR tools are meant in part to continuously monitor endpoints – the process of capturing and analysing data in real time from enterprise endpoints to help security teams detect issues more quickly.
But what happens when your enterprise needs to scale solutions to 100,000, 200,000 or even 500,000 endpoints? And across multiple continents? Every enterprise CISO I’ve spoken with has to ask, “will this work on every machine I want it to, providing value across the entire enterprise consistently without breaking anything?” If the answer is no, the solution isn’t viable at enterprise scale.
OpenText™ EnCase™ delivers threat detection and response with a “bottom-up” approach that leverages our forensic expertise and capabilities. EnCase offers unobstructed insight into machines, data, and application interactions for security teams, while eliminating many of the issues that make traditional EDR tools difficult to scale.
To find out how, come see us at the booth, or check out my session on Wednesday, Mar. 6 @ 12:00 PM — Continuous Endpoint Monitoring at Scale for the Global Enterprise.
The importance of Identity and Access Management (IAM) for Security
According to one estimate, 80% of data breaches are caused by stolen, weak or default passwords – in other words, poor identity management, and not just for the people accessing enterprise networks.
Cyber attackers are relentlessly targeting digital identities (the keys to the kingdom!), the devices that make life easier, and the networks that make everything work. As enterprises become more connected to an ever-expanding network across the internet of things (IoT), digital identity and cybersecurity are becoming more closely linked than ever.
Enterprises must move quickly to secure the identities of every actor, human or machine. IoT devices and network systems that speak to other systems, users and devices all need secure identity management. OpenText™ Covisint enables organizations to centrally manage the entire identity lifecycle of internal and external users, as well as critical resources across the enterprise.
We’ll be demoing the platform all week at booth #6353.
Getting real about AI and Security in 2019
The final problem we’ll be discussing in detail at RSA, how AI and ML can be applied for better security. AI was the term du-jour at RSA 2018, but for all the hype and marketing, we believe 2019 will be the year we take a realistic look as a community at how to leverage AI to solve real use cases within security operations.
Writing in Forbes this year, Joe McKendrick predicts that “In essence, AI will increasingly serve as a way to filter through the growing data hairball that characterizes today’s enterprises.”
Visit us in the booth to learn how OpenText™ Magellan™, a flexible AI-powered analytics platform, learns the enterprise environment, data and preferences over time, to self-optimize for increasingly better performance. When combined with OpenText™ EnCase™ Endpoint Security, OpenText Magellan provides security teams insights from even the most complex and seemingly unrelated “data hairball.”
We call this a posture of predictive security – a vision of integrated security, machine learning, and business intelligence from OpenText that reduces the gap between compromise and detection, improves response capabilities, and creates better security outcomes.
Visit Booth #6353 to learn about how we scale EDR for the enterprise, help manage the entire identity lifecycle, and get real with applied AI and ML for predictive security.
If any of these topics are of interest to you, I hope we’ll see you at Moscone.
