Thales insights in defence, cyber security, transport and digital identity

Banks and fintechs can empower their clients to choose smarter options for a better future.

Besides, the COVID-19 global pandemic has drastically changed consumer attitudes and lead people to search for environmental-friendly solutions in many aspects of their lives.

Authentication and access management

Authentication and access management is increasingly perceived as core to Zero Trust Security. The changing global environment has brought many changes to all organizations.

While many business enterprises consider that remote access to corporate resources and data is the key disruption, security teams had to face many more challenges.

The acceleration of cloud migration and the proliferation of containers, microservices and Internet of Things devices have placed identity in the center of corporate security, making identity and access management (IAM) as important as never experienced before.

The 2021 Thales Access Management Index, based on data from a survey of more than 2,600 respondents in more than 10 countries across the globe, looks to identify the depth of that change, as well as the current state and plans across a range of industries.

Key management

The challenge of cloud shared responsibility and whose keys are they, anyway?

Key management is the processing, management and storage of keys for who can decrypt and access protected information. Its an often-overlooked critical element of encryption.

Many organizations left that part up to their vendors or stored them inconsistently across their information technology infrastructures considering both hardware and software.

This lack of centralized control can jeopardize the integrity of encryption.

Management of the keys is more important than the encryption itself, because if something happens to the keys, entire sets of data can be lost, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Zero trust adoption

An executive order about cybersecurity is urging zero trust adoption.

In the Thales Crypto Summit, experts spoke about cryptographic and key management to keep organizations secure. President Biden’s Executive Order was a key point of discussion.

Aimed at “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity”, the EO was issued on May 12, 2021, which is the starting point by which many of the requirements and due dates are measured.

Quantum Computing

Why should enterprises prepare for the coming threat of quantum computing?

Businesses worldwide are responsible for protecting an array of confidential information, from intellectual property and financial projections to customer data and contract details.

Encryption was the primary tool for defending this information on-premises and in the cloud.
