How do you manage your security policies today?

Are they implemented and enforced consistently across every resource? 

Chances are that your answer to the last question is a reluctant “NO” because successfully managing security policies across the entire environment from a single pane of glass is a challenge that everyone faces. Most organizations manage policies in silos, with many resources going unmanaged. Even those who utilize Group Policy within Active Directory find it very difficult to effectively leverage those authorization and authentication policies in other systems.

Can a universal policy strategy solve all your security headaches.pngThe fact still remains that all systems within your environment need some kind of policy controls – from Linux and UNIX servers to a wide variety of cloud resources such as virtual machines, SaaS, containers, etc. It becomes even more difficult when you must prepare your existing security policies for the cloud and find a way to migrate them to cloud services such as Intune.

Managing policy in so many different places is highly inefficient (sometimes impossible) and the lack of consistency opens the organization up to a great amount of risk. Bad actors are just waiting to find vulnerabilities when it comes to security policy and will exploit any gaps every chance they get.

If you are interested in what universal policy management can bring to your organization, I invite you to attend our upcoming webinar, Five steps to implement a universal policy strategy. You will learn how to transform the way you manage security policies with a brand new set of solutions from Micro Focus.
