7 Key Reasons to Implement an Identity Aware Network

Cover
One of the fundamental issues faced by IT managers today is the lack of a basic, consistent framework needed to protect intellectual property, customer data, and sensitive information. While many organizations have spent considerable funds for perimeter security to keep unwanted intruders out, the internal network communities have tended to be - by default - implicitly trusted.

This paper details seven key reasons why internal networks are migrating towards an identity and role based infrastructure and examines how an identity aware network can help your company:

  • Enable user based policy and enforcement for the protection of critical assets
  • Audit, unify, define and enforce user identity at the network level
  • Reduce business risk and support compliance efforts such as PCI, SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, FISMA and EU Privacy Directives
