Protecting Identities in a Zero Trust EnvironmentMicrosoft’s Neha Monga on Applying AI to Spot Threats Early
Securing identities in a "zero trust" environment requires applying multifactor authentication and then adding layers - and artificial intelligence can play a critical role, says Neha Monga, Microsoft's director, product marketing for cybersecurity and data governance- APAC.
“For our customers, we recommend identity protection which is an AI-based tool that allows organizations to accomplish three things, including automation or detection of ID-based risks, investigating risk based on available data, and exportation of risk detected data to the third party utilities for further analysis,” Monga says in a video interview with Information Security Media Group.
In this interview, Monga discusses:
- How to overcome the visibility challenges with appropriate tools;
- Using enhanced monitoring capabilities to spot attacks;
- Adopting a defense-in-depth strategy to protect the crown jewels from attacks.
