OAuth (pronounced "oh-auth”) is an authorization framework that allows an application to request “secure delegated access” to third-party systems on behalf of the apps’ users or the “resource owner.” Simply put, with OAuth, users can grant websites and applications access to their information on other websites without providing important credentials like passwords. OAuth stands for "Open Authorization”.
Passwords are everywhere — and nobody likes them. For users, they are a pain to remember and manage. For businesses, they continue to be a primary source of data breaches, both on premises and in the cloud. In fact, the 2022 Verizon DBIR reports that credential theft was involved in nearly half of all cyberattacks, including third-party breaches, phishing attacks and basic web application attacks.
If you’re an IT manager or business owner, chances are external security is always top of your mind. But lately, managing access control of documents for employees has become just as necessary to limit access to information and information processing systems. While cybersecurity breaches are a menacing threat, internal security problems can be equally devastating, making access control measures necessary to mitigate the risk of access without authorization.
We’re elated to announce that ManageEngine has been recognized in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Privileged Access Management.
Privileged access management is a package of cybersecurity strategies and access management tools used for controlling, monitoring, and safeguarding users with privileged access permissions.
