Digital Transformation In Information Security And Beyond.

The first software for applied applications, released decades ago, kicked off the digitization process. I’d define digitalization as anything involving the usage of software, binary code, or information technology. Calculations were originally performed with the assistance of programs, and programming was then extended to technical operations. IT has and will continue to exist in practically every element of company. E-commerce already accounts for a significant portion of the economy. Management digitization offers more flexible business administration by automating some procedures using programs. Self-learning neural networks are utilized to make diagnosis in digital telemedicine. Digital video studios create content depending on viewer choices.

It appears that information security does not have its own content; rather, it ensures that the fundamental business process runs smoothly. However, its safety is such a priority that the security service supplied by an auxiliary team becomes almost as important as the primary one. Even though cyber dangers do not directly affect people’s health, the security of transactions, theft prevention, and the safety of valuable equipment are all vital for business.

Bite Only What You Can Chew

Accounting and finance, process management are just a few of the industries that have already benefited from digital technology. Electronic marketing is becoming increasingly popular, with forward-thinking businesses reaching new heights in digital sales and customer relationship management. The digitization of information security is happening piecemeal. In fact, we are still unfamiliar with the concept of information security. Typically, the issue is confined to managing Internet traffic or gaining access to internal technological resources. In contrast, the deployment of an information security system frequently allows us to refer to it as digitalization process management.

Despite the fact that we typically master just basic capabilities, the history of computer engagement in our life showed that we have been given a sense of power. You can have a better grasp of what you manage by converting procedures to computerized automation. Every digital activity leaves a trace; all you have to do is collect this data, analyze it, and draw conclusions. The current stage of technical growth allows you to go to a new degree of digital tool use, but this demands a shift in perspective.

Where Do I Even Begin?

We no longer grasp how the components are interrelated when we manage each company activity or function independently. Most of the time, they are unconnected, and it takes a lot of work to keep many criteria in mind and draw them together. The first step in digitizing management is to examine what you already have in place, what software tools are being utilized, and if they are part of a system or stand alone. This audit will assist in determining the gaps and how to fix them.

The second stage toward digitalization is to standardize infrastructure administration. The main concept of the Octonius platform is the creation of common standards and interaction protocols that allow software to be compatible and its clients to construct their own digital environment, modifying it to match their needs.

Octonius Cloud is a user-action automation system that creates own information security setting. It implements the current information security concept of a non-perimeter IS architecture. This implies it makes no difference where your staff are or if they are linked to you via an internal network. Octonius would work safely if they have Internet connection.  When deployed on-premises, the platform is adopted to an enterprise security perimeter. 

Could SaaS Infrastructure

Octonius’ mission-critical servers are housed in dedicated cages in data centers in the United States and Europe:

  • SaaS cloud core servers are housed in a secure data center in Frankfurt, Germany.
  • SaaS cloud servers in the United States are housed in a secure data center in San Jose, California.

The Octonius design incorporates consistency as well. The program was built from the start to interact with other components of the information infrastructure in a conflict-free way, and if problems develop with new versions of third-party apps, the support service will address them as quickly as possible. 

Application Safety

Octonius’ Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) includes a comprehensive Application Security Lifecycle procedure, which includes:

  • Defined in-house security standards, rules, and industry security best practices that are applied throughout the lifecycle.
  • Continuous security audit of architectures, design elements, and solutions.
  • Iterative manual and automated (using static code analyzers) source code evaluation for security flaws, vulnerabilities, and code quality, as well as advise and assistance from the development team.
  • Manual inspection and dynamic scanning of the pre-production environment on a regular basis.
  • Security trainings are provided to IT teams based on their work duties.

Encryption Of Data

With industry-leading current browsers, Octonius employs Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 with a recommended AES 256 bit algorithm in CBC mode and a 2048-bit server key length.

When you use a web browser, mobile application, email add-in, or browser extension to use Octonius, TLS technology secures your information by utilizing both server authentication and data encryption. This is comparable to network security procedures employed by banks and major e-commerce sites.

Passwords, cookies, and critical information for all users are safely safeguarded against eavesdropping. User files uploaded to Octonius servers via the web application and API are automatically AES 256 encrypted with per-file keys. Furthermore, all Octonius workstations and servers are protected at rest utilizing AES 256-bit file system encryption.

To cut the long story short, we protect your Octonius connection and encrypt the database on the server.

Although information security has no content, it reduces costs and improves the efficiency of the main business. Furthermore, without effective information security, no digitalization would be feasible.
