IAM for Tech & Defense Companies

Protecting Sensitive Data in the High-Tech and Defense Sector

Higher, faster, better: The innovations tech and defense companies are working on today will shape our lives for decades to come. To research and develop these new cutting-edge technologies, scientists and engineers need access to large amounts of data from various sources, without wasting time on lengthy approval processes.

While enabling quick access for authorized users is important, protecting the same information from unauthorized access is just as crucial. Today, confidential tech data is a highly sought-after good among cybercriminals and competing companies. While most businesses are aware of the risk posed by cyberattacks, data theft from within can be just as damaging.

To make matters worse, it can take months before a company realizes one of their employees stole sensitive information like project folders, technical specs or lab data. All of which could benefit one of your top competitors, or even fuel a brand-new startup! To prevent these kinds of data leaks, you need to make sure your information is protected from bad actors within and without.

Financial Risks of Cyberattacks

The potential damage that industrial espionage or targeted hacks can cause to companies is tremendous. The global cost of cybercrimes like these is estimated to reach 10.5 trillion US-dollars annually by 2025. To protect patents and trademark rights and to maintain competitive advantages, it is absolutely vital that access to confidential information is both controlled and secure.

Federal Government Contractors

Organizations that work with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) need to meet the cybersecurity criteria laid out in the NIST special publication 800-171. This includes contractors with the Department of Defense (DoD), NASA contractors, research institutions with federal grants and various service providers who work with government agencies.

The requirements of NIST 800-171 include various logical access controls, secure authentication and audit trails for access to CUI. An IAM solution will help you automate many of the needed security measures.

Tech & Defense Cybersecurity Standards:

  • CMMC (DoD)
  • FIPS 200
  • NIST SP 800-171
  • NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Better Cybersecurity and Compliance With tenfold Access Management

tenfold gives you quick, easy and secure control of access rights. The innovative IAM solution serves as a central platform for managing users and privileges across your local network, the cloud and third-party applications, such as Jira, SAP ERP and HCL Notes. Systems without a pre-built plugin can be connected using a REST API or tenfold‘s Generic Connector.

tenfold employs a concept known as role-based access control (RBAC), which means that it adjusts privileges automatically when users join groups or are removed from them. Not only does the use of RBAC make it significantly easier to manage access rights, it also contributes toward compliance with and implementation of IT security best practices (e.g. the principle of least privilege).

To safeguard high-security networks, tenfold can also be operated without an internet connection.

Documentation & Reporting

To eliminate issues with your company’s access structure, the tenfold dashboard automatically checks Microsoft systems like Active Directory, Azure AD and Exchange for common problems and allows you to fix them with just one click. Regular user access reviews ensure that permissions which are no longer needed are removed in time.

tenfold logs these changes and can provide reports detailing the effective permissions of users, thus facilitating the implementation of security standards and helping you better prepare for compliance audits.
