With so much sensitive information being consumed by remote users, most organizations have some level of an access control strategy in place. Setting access control right is very hard and often results in poor user experience. While the array of potential device and network options used for access creates various blind spots, the one constant metric is the user's behavior. But effective access control is more than having the raw user metrics, but rather leveraging a solution that is simple to set up, use and maintain.
• Andras Cser of Forrester will kick off the discussion with real-world examples and observations illustrating why user context needs to play a central role in managing access, and then how User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) helps achieve it. • Gireesh Kumar will explain how Micro Focus can automate the assessment of behavioral analytics that finds high-risk access, invokes a higher level of identity verification and/or adjusts the user’s current authorization based on the risk at hand, all in a model that is easy for IT and security teams to apply to their environments.
