Reduce your organization’s risk through a Zero Trust strategy – saving money and time by further securing your organization from attacks and breaches.

Read on to learn the top 7 adoption strategies to increase your organization’s security...

Assuming your organization is secure, based on a firewall, is no longer adequate. Zero Trust is a security strategy that enables organizations to approach data security and verification with a focus on an increasingly mobile, remote, and versatile workforce environment.

What is Zero Trust?

Zero Trust is a broad strategy for modern security that reconciles today's complex environment and mobile workforce to protect people, devices, and data wherever they are located. Unlike traditional approaches that attempt to force all assets onto a “secure and compliant” network, Zero Trust focuses on the security and compliance of assets regardless of their physical or network location. Organizations must stop believing the fallacy that things behind the firewall are safe. Regardless of where a request originates or what resource it accesses, Zero Trust teaches the importance of “never trust, always verify.”

Managing-Teams-Establish-Security

Managing Microsoft Teams enables your organization to optimize productive collaboration but requires thoughtful planning to do it well. Read on to consider what’s best for your organization!
__________________________________________________

Overview of Teams

Microsoft Teams is a powerful platform that combines workplace chat, meetings, notes, and attachments. Teams integrates with your Office 365 subscription productivity suite and feature extensions that can integrate with non-Microsoft products as well. It provides a place for your team to collaborate on projects through unified communication, which increases business effectiveness.

Interlink’s Energize Identity Security Workshop | Uncover Risks and Improve your Security Posture

Interlink_ISW_BlogHeader

The statistics surrounding enterprise identity risk are staggering...

According to a recent report, 94 percent of organizations have suffered an identity-related breach at some point and 79 percent suffered such a break in the past two years. Despite those numbers, less than half of the respondents to the survey have fully implemented key identity security safeguards.1

Identity is today’s gateway to your network and properly controlling it is the key to system security. The growing implementation of cloud applications, the increased use of personal devices connecting to your network, and the rise of the remote workforce mean that you are no longer able to protect your data behind a four-wall security fortress. The challenge now is securing user identities to ensure you are limiting access to authorized users.
