Simeio Blog Post: What the Apple-DOJ Case Can Tell You About Your Enterprise Security
What the Apple-DOJ Case Can Tell You About Back Doors in
Your Enterprise Security

The recent public dispute between Apple and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) over the encrypted “San Bernardino” iPhone has served as a powerful reminder of the challenges every enterprise faces when it comes to identity and data security.

No matter what side of the issue you come down on, it's clear that there's a real tension between keeping data secure and providing access to that data to those who need it. While the DOJ is seeking to have “back doors” installed in all systems, Apple and its allies have argued that any such back door would inevitably be discovered by rogue individuals or organizations, and then exploited for nefarious purposes.

Indeed, it seems that Apple was proven right since it was a “gray hat” hacker who discovered how to circumvent Apple's protections – in essence, discovering an inadvertent back door that even Apple was unaware of, which ultimately gave the DOJ the access it wanted.

The frightening reality is that in today's enterprise, such inadvertent back doors not only exist, they are more common than you might think.

In this month's lead article, Simeio Executive Vice President Shawn Keve discusses the threat such inadvertent back doors pose to your organization, and ways to prevent them.
