Despite increased awareness of looming threats and a surplus of available security products, many IT systems are still at risk from threats such as unpatched software, disparate security product implementations that leave gaps and departmental silos. Data and access proliferation also contribute to breaches, even where best-of-breed security systems are in place.
Cognizant’s Enterprise Security Management framework monitors security on demand using big data analytics and an overarching risk intelligence service. It scores security threats in real-time and alerts users when and where to take action.
A summary of the top 10 SMaaS features, including advanced correlation, predictive modeling, activity monitoring and user activity certification. A visual overview of executive dashboard screenshot is also included.
Our client had a global IT environment with a best-of-breed security infrastructure. Despite this, there were recurring patterns of security incidents and events that needed to be addressed. Cognizant provided the client with its flagship SMaaS solution and leveraged the service’s security intelligence capabilities to correlate data events across the infrastructure. The client was able to correlate end-to-end intrusion attempts and vulnerabilities, pinpoint areas of risk needing immediate attention and gain a clear view into the future of its security infrastructure.
One of the largest such departments in the U.S., this state healthcare agency operates multiple databases running critical applications. With numerous database and access privileges, a lack of access control posed operational and regulatory compliance risks. Cognizant proposed its SMaaS solution to help the agency correlate a pattern of user access and to identify entitlement packages to be used for enforcing access controls. The client gained a clear view of all database access and usage, established a process for automated role engineering and was able to manage and monitor roles proactively.
