re: DBAs And Developers Need To Better Segment Data Access
-Back when "Personal Computers" were 20# and didn't move once installed, had a static phone number attached to a land line or better were Green Screens, this was feasible, but with the proliferation of portable devices, call backs just aren't something you can do reliably.- When was the last time you logged in with a modem?

re: DBAs And Developers Need To Better Segment Data Access
Perhaps we should see a re-birth of the old "Black Box" call-back methodology where a remote or mobile user when logging on is subjected to a "call-back" where the system has a record of the remote users device and calls back to it to permit access/processing.

Reply to dritchie..... FYI... Aren't you aware that every mobile device has and identifiable and addressable identity...????

re: DBAs And Developers Need To Better Segment Data Access
In the ancient history of information processing... during the days of main-frame computing... it was standard practice to profile each user as to which applications they had access to.... then... within an application... which data fields/elements they had the privilege to view, modify, and/or delete.- Have today's developers become to lazy to do the little extra work involved to protect their data? Or are they just lazy or incompetent?

Further... by employing authorized user profiles to control access will act as an impediment to hackers and spoofers gaining access to a system's applications and data bases.

There is an old proverb that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
