Welcome to the IGEL Software Platform: Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide. The goal for this project is to provide you with the tools, knowledge, and understanding to download the IGEL Platform trial software and perform basic installation and configuration without being forced to read many manuals and numerous web support articles.

Welcome to the IGEL Software Platform: Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide. My goal for this project is to provide you with the tools, knowledge, and understanding to download the IGEL Platform trial software and perform basic installation and configuration without being forced to read many manuals and numerous web support articles.

This document will walk you, step-by-step, through what is required for you to get up and running in a proof-of-concept or lab scenario. When finished, you will have a fully working IGEL End-Point Management Platform consisting of the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG) and at least one IGEL OS installed, connected and centrally managed! 

See It, Fix It, Manage It: Ensuring Hybrid and Multi-cloud Applications Are Reliable and Secure
Most enterprises are moving to hybrid or multi-cloud architectures. Operating these environments requires IT teams to rethink their approach to monitoring and reporting on applications and environments. Cloud services differ in functions which makes achieving and maintaining a consistent configuration difficult but not impossible. A significant portion of companies plan to utilize third-party products, reducing some of the variability in feature capabilities across clouds to simplify management.

The author of this Pathfinder report is Mike Fratto, a Senior Research Analyst on the Applied Infrastructure & DevOps team at 451 Research, a part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. Pathfinder reports navigate decision-makers through the issues surrounding a specific technology or business case, explore the business value of adoption, and recommend the range of considerations and concrete next steps in the decision-making process.

This report explores the following topics:

  • the growth of already commonplace cloud usage for mission-critical applications
  • the importance of cloud governance
  • the top cloud security concerns for enterprises
  • the adoption of third-party tools for cloud management
  • the steps IT teams should take to make their cloud environments more secure and reliable

US Cybersecurity Census Report
Cybersecurity is now recognized as a key priority for U.S. businesses. However, cybersecurity threats are evolving as risks, and the responses necessary to mitigate them, change rapidly. Staying a step ahead of bad actors is a continuous challenge and businesses—despite their intentions to do so—aren’t always keeping pace.

Cybersecurity is now recognized as a key priority for U.S. businesses. However, cybersecurity threats are evolving as risks, and the responses necessary to mitigate them, change rapidly. Staying a step ahead of bad actors is a continuous challenge and businesses—despite their intentions to do so—aren’t always keeping pace.

To solve this problem, IT leaders must understand why. They need answers to questions such as, how is cybersecurity transforming? How are cyberattacks harming businesses? Where must investments in preventative training and tools be focused? Is cybersecurity being prioritized by leadership? And how does cybersecurity fit within organizational culture?

In partnership with Sapio Research, Keeper Security analyzed the behaviors and attitudes of 516 IT decision-makers in the U.S. to answer these questions and more. This report, Keeper’s second annual U.S. Cybersecurity Census, maps the transforming landscape of cybersecurity based on these expert insights. It provides leaders with a forensic assessment of the threats their businesses face and details the urgent strategies necessary to overcome them.

Businesses across the U.S. are making cybersecurity a priority. However, despite efforts and investments, clear gaps remain. Our research shows that there have been small steps, but no giant leaps.

The volume and pace at which threats are hitting businesses are increasing, and leadership can’t afford to wait. If they do, the financial, reputational, and organizational penalties will be severe. Likewise, as work has transformed dramatically over the past two years—with hybrid and remote working normalized— companies need to rethink how they are building cybersecurity resilience.

Keeper Security Insight Report: Privileged Access Mgmt Survey User Insights on Cost & Complexity
Privileged access management solutions are primarily designed to protect IT staff, executive leadership, and research and development staff, however, the accelerated digital transformation and ceaseless barrage of cyberthreats is making it increasingly important to protect all end-users within an organization.

Research finds PAM solutions are too complex with 68% of organizations paying for “wasted features” that are rarely used. A global survey of 400 IT and security executives conducted in January 2023, by Keeper Security in partnership with TrendCandy Research, reveals an overwhelming industry desire for Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions that are easy to deploy and maintain.

The findings show that traditional PAM solutions are falling far short, largely because they are too complex to implement and use. An overwhelming 84% of IT leaders said they want to simplify their PAM solution in 2023. In the current high-risk security climate, it is imperative that all organizations secure their privileged credentials, privileged accounts, and privileged sessions to protect their crown jewels. However, many traditional PAM solutions are failing to provide their intended value outside of these core use cases, because deployment is either too complex, too cost-prohibitive, or both. In the era of remote work, organizations need agile identity security solutions that can protect against cybersecurity threat vectors by monitoring, detecting, and preventing unauthorized privileged access to critical resources.

Keeper Security, a leading innovator in privileged access management, wanted to better understand how IT leaders are thinking about PAM, deploying their PAM solutions, and streamlining their PAM implementations. Keeper commissioned an independent research firm to survey 400 IT and data security leaders in North America and Europe about their strategies and plans for PAM in 2023.

Optimization of IT Log Data with Log Intelligence
Cyber attacks are getting sophisticated, necessitating early detection of malicious activity. Stringent government policies and compliances necessitate building robust log management systems. And, increased reliance on technology to support hybrid work models necessitates efficient management of extensive log data. Hence, log intelligence is in demand by organizations as they need robust systems to address the issues above and create secure and efficient log management.
