HP released a report expressing fears that the IT industry has a nasty habit of forgetting what they’ve learned security-wise each time it tackles the next big tech challenge. With the increasing excitement about the potential of the Internet of Things
(IoT), hidden dangers are lurking.
Daniel Miessler, the head of the research team at HP Fortify on Demand said recently in an article:
“It seems that every time we introduce a new space in IT we lose 10 years from our collective security knowledge. Around 10 years ago we started talking about applications being the horizon technology, and we proceeded to build a global application portfolio ignoring the security lessons learned from the network world.”
“Then, five years ago, we decided that mobile was the real place to be. So everyone started building mobile apps while ignoring everything we’ve learned from securing web and thick-client applications.”
By using Uplogix to manage remote devices, IT policies are always enforced, whether working in-band or out-of-band. All user authentication can be directed to an existing RADIUS or TACACS server in order to keep user passwords synchronized throughout the enterprise while authorization is maintained by Uplogix.
