Cybersecurity Risk Management: Identify, detect, protect, respond, and recover.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity provides processes and mechanisms for any organization to enhance cybersecurity risk management. The Framework itself is the result of a federal Executive Order, and even though it’s voluntary, many federal agencies are adopting, or plan to adopt, the structure, activities, and procedures it details. But the Framework is applicable to more than just federal agencies; state and local governments, education institutions, and businesses worldwide can use it to assess and improve their cybersecurity infrastructure and processes.

Quest, hardware, and services help your organization identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover, better managing cybersecurity risk.

Identify

Identify

Detect

Detect

More protection, simply.

Use the power of Active Roles to solve security issues and meet compliance requirements. With automated tools to efficiently manage users and groups, as well as Active Directory delegation, Active Roles helps you to overcome Active Directory’s native limitations. And with Active Roles as the foundation, you can better take advantage of our Identity and Access Management solutions for privileged account management, access control, and identity governance.

Protect

Protect

Develop safeguards to ensure service delivery

Develop and implement the appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services. Limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event by using the industry-leading One Identity Manager and other Quest solutions to manage identity and access for regular and privileged users, as well as for data. Maximize access control and achieve governance with a unified approach to IAM.

Recover

Recover

Restore capabilities and services

Ensure near-continuous image-level backups and lightning-fast recovery of capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity event. Reduce the impact from a cybersecurity event with backup, recovery, and application-specific data protection solutions from Quest. Boost productivity, save time and money.

Respond

Respond

Turbocharge your forensics.

Unauthorized access to privileged accounts is often at the heart of security breaches. When you’re using One Identity’s Privileged Session Manager, you can tightly control the use of privileged accounts so that you can determine who did what when. You can also record all session activity, so that when you’re doing forensics on a particular incident, you can play them back in DVR fashion, and even search for events across multiple sessions.
