CSAP Secures Information Sharing Channels with Granular Access Controls

Share Blog post

The Cyware Situational Awareness Platform (CSAP) version 2.6 comes with the new Access Control feature that enables Admins to regulate user access to the Analyst Portal from select geographies and IP addresses. 

Why does it matter?
  • The feature acts as a gatekeeper to limit and control access from select countries and locations. 
  • The feature provides an added layer of security for information sharing by allowing security teams to switch to whitelisting mode to provide access only to a limited set of trusted users. The whitelisting feature works on the “Zero-Trust” approach that bars access to everyone except a select few.

How does it work?
  • This new feature allows Admins to manage access to the Analyst Portal by whitelisting or blacklisting select countries or IP address ranges. 
  • The whitelisting and blacklisting modes can be configured from Access Control in the Settings module of the CSAP Analyst Portal. 

The bottom line
The volume of sensitive information shared is only going to increase as threat intelligence sharing participation rate increases for organizations. With the introduction of “Zero-Trust” based access control, CSAP version 2.6 takes the step in the right direction to provide enhanced security for information sharing communities (ISACs and ISAOs) and private enterprises.
