Moving Past the Relics of Password-Secured Credentials with FIDO 2.0

In an era where digital security is paramount, the persistent reliance on passwords remains a significant vulnerability for enterprises globally. FIDO 2.0 emerges as a timely solution, reimagining credential authorization using available technologies.

Legacy credential systems, rooted in the Internet 1.0 era, increasingly expose organisations to sophisticated AI-backed cyber threats. The 15% increase in attacks against Indian organisations, now averaging 2,138 attempts per week, can largely be attributed to these poorly secured credentials. As companies and industries continue to thrive throughout India and the region, security teams benefit from implementing new credential approaches, such as FIDO 2.0 stands from the very implementation of their networks.

Despite CISOs and cybersecurity practitioners’ efforts in network security, advanced authentication implementation, and staff training on cyber hygiene, it still only takes a single breach to bring operations to a halt.

Changing the credentials status quo

Despite diverse authentication methods, the prevalent use of alphanumeric codes for logins continues to compromise organisational security.

Recent years have particularly highlighted these faults in the Asia Pacific region. This has resulted in:

This goes beyond the financial and personal burden put on people as they try to understand if their information is compromised.

In the past, these attacks were successfully conducted by identifying a vulnerability within a system and exploiting it using relevant tactics. However, today companies face two main threats, phishing attacks and device compromise.

Device compromise

Organisations permitting remote work or personal device use face an additional security layer– unfamiliar devices.

IT operators have always struggled to identify and approve all devices on a network– again relying on usernames, passwords, and perhaps some other alphanumeric authentication technique. The danger lies in the possibility that these two-factor authentication methods may also be compromised alongside user credentials.

Adding to the compilation, single sign-on has grown in popularity, but if a user is compromised, so too are their profiles created across all the tools that they have given access to the single point. Even with examples of organisational approved SSO with a secure environment, no matter how secure those APIs and authentications are, if the front door is still secured with a username, password, and alphanumeric authentication then the risk is still ever-present

Navigating Microsoft SQL Server and Kubernetes in a Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Era

In a business world that’s increasingly leaning on hybrid and multi-cloud environments for agility and competitiveness, DH2i’s recent launch of DxOperator couldn’t be more timely. For those managing SQL Server within Kubernetes — especially when dealing with the intricacies of operating across various cloud platforms — it is a true game changer.

DxOperator is the result of a close relationship with the Microsoft SQL Server team, which led to the creation of a tool that is ideally suited to automate SQL Server container deployment in Kubernetes. What makes it truly unique and a stand-out in this space is DxOperator’s ability to take complex setups and make them simple — which ensures that HA and operational efficiency are easily achievable, even across multi-cloud environments.

Of course, another reason that DxOperator is in a league of its own is how it turns your specific requirements into optimized actions. DxOperator handles everything from custom pod naming to node selection with such finesse that managing SQL Server containers becomes a breeze. It’s all about making sure that your deployments are not just efficient but also best practice compliant.

Microsoft’s Rob Horrocks praised DxOperator (see announcement) for its ease-of-use and effectiveness, noting its potential to simplify complex deployments for those who might not be Kubernetes experts. DxOperator’s user-friendly nature, together with its robustness is reshaping how businesses approach database management.

Key Advantages:

Effortless Automation: DxOperator automates complex tasks like custom pod naming and node selection, making SQL Server container management a breeze. DxOperator ensures deployments adhere to best practices, optimizing performance and security.

Unprecedented Efficiency: Previously requiring 30 minutes and vast amounts of code, DxOperator reduces deployment time to 3-5 minutes with minimal coding. This simplifies the transition to Kubernetes for SQL Server experts.

Focus on Availability Groups: Designed by DH2i's CTO, OJ Ngo, DxOperator excels at automating and managing SQL Server availability groups, a critical aspect for high availability.

The rise of hybrid and multi-cloud environments demands agility and cost-efficiency. In this landscape, DH2i's DxOperator emerges as a game-changer for managing SQL Server within Kubernetes. Developed in collaboration with Microsoft, DxOperator automates SQL Server container deployment in Kubernetes, simplifying even the most intricate setups.
