Context-aware Security

Context-aware security is an IT term for making security decisions based on user and environment information. It includes factors such as identity verification, location-based data, and logins that help determine whether the system should trust a particular user. This approach to security may allow a user to access the internet from inside the office, for example, but prevent access if that same user attempts to access public Wi-Fi.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Context-aware Security

SMBs can implement context-aware security measures to protect their data and networks from unauthorized access. By considering factors such as location and user identity, companies can make sure that only authorized users can access their systems. Additionally, context-aware security can help businesses meet compliance requirements for data security regulations.
