Wrike, the collaborative work management (CWM) platform for high-performance teams, continues to remove the security barriers preventing enterprise companies from adopting a cloud-based CWM platform.

The company announced today that it is has earned the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification from the British Standards Institution. This recognition demonstrates Wrike’s relentless commitment to protecting customer data and supporting the most rigorous security standards.

Wrike also announced the availability of Wrike Lock and Customized Access Roles, as well as five other new security features, including cloud access security broker (CASB) integration support.

Collaborative Work Management (CWM)

Enterprise-wide deployments offer significant benefits to company productivity"

Collaborative work management is how businesses are responding to a more tech-savvy workforce that expects the flexible benefits of collaborating and managing all kinds of work – not just formal projects,” according to IDC Research Director for Social, Communities, and Collaboration, Wayne Kurtzman.

Often starting in small teams, enterprise-wide deployments offer significant benefits to company productivity, but often require complex security and governance requirements. Wrike Lock, as well as the company’s other enterprise-grade security features and certifications, make Wrike an attractive and viable option for enterprise customers.

Wrike Platform Security Features

A security pioneer, Wrike has been focused on bringing enterprise-grade security to the CWM market since the company was founded in 2006. The Wrike security strategy includes a comprehensive approach across five categories: physical, network, system, application, and people. The new Wrike platform security features include:

  • Wrike Lock is an add-on feature that allows customers to own and manage the keys to their encrypted Wrike data, giving them data access control and audit capabilities even though their data is in the cloud.
  • CASB integration support allows customers to use the CASB offering of their choice to enforce enterprise security policies on their Wrike data, enabling them to spot unusual user activity easily and better protect data stored in the cloud.
  • Customized Access Roles ensure better privacy and content integrity by enabling customers to create roles with unique permission sets that satisfy a variety of access and sharing requirements.
  • Access Reports enable customers to quickly and easily see which users have access to folders, projects, and tasks, as well as any tasks with attachments that external guest users have been invited to review.
  • Selective sharing allows customers to make it so that folders and projects do not follow the default of inheriting sharing settings from parent folders or projects, giving greater access control over specific subfolders and subprojects.
  • New sharing interface makes it easier and more intuitive for users to modify sharing settings, better enabling and encouraging them to take greater control of access to work in Wrike.
  • New antivirus feature will scan files for viruses before being uploaded to Wrike, which will enhance the security of users’ devices by mitigating the risk of uploading or downloading infected files from Wrike. This feature will be available in 2H 2019.

Security A Top Concern

Upcoming security features demonstrate our commitment to making Wrike the most secure CWM platform"

Security is a top concern for enterprise companies, and rightly so, but SMBs often fail to examine new apps and tools with the same level of scrutiny – and they do so at their own peril,” said Wrike Founder and CEO Andrew Filev.

In today’s digital world, the moment you believe you are secure is the moment you open yourself to an attack or breach, regardless of your company’s size. The ISO certification, Wrike Lock, and all of our new and upcoming security features demonstrate our commitment to making Wrike the most secure CWM platform on the market, and we will continue to invest in the security of our services to exceed industry standards.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification

The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification ensures Wrike has an end-to-end security framework and a risk-based approach to managing information security and illustrates Wrike’s commitment to a mature and robust security strategy.

ISO/IEC 27001 is the most highly regarded and only internationally recognized standard for the establishment and certification of an information security management system (ISMS). It provides a set of requirements for an ISMS, establishing a systematic, risk-management-based approach to people, processes, and IT systems to protect sensitive company information.

What New Technologies And Trends Will Shape Video Analytics?
What New Technologies And Trends Will Shape Video Analytics?

The topic of video analytics has been talked and written about for decades, and yet is still one of the cutting-edge themes in the physical security industry. Some say yesterday’s analytics systems tended to overpromise and underdeliver, and there are still some skeptics. However, newer technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) are reinvigorating the sector and enabling it to finally live up to its promise. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What new technologies and trends will shape video analytics in 2021?

Tackling The Challenge Of The Growing Cybersecurity Gap
Tackling The Challenge Of The Growing Cybersecurity Gap

The SolarWinds cyberattack of 2020 was cited by security experts as “one of the potentially largest penetrations of Western governments” since the Cold War. This attack put cybersecurity front and center on people’s minds again. Hacking communication protocol The attack targeted the US government and reportedly compromised the treasury and commerce departments and Homeland Security. What’s interesting about the SolarWinds attack is that it was caused by the exploitation of a hacker who injected a backdoor communications protocol.  This means that months ahead of the attack, hackers broke into SolarWinds systems and added malicious code into the company’s software development system. Later on, updates being pushed out included the malicious code, creating a backdoor communication for the hackers to use. Once a body is hacked, access can be gained to many. An explosion of network devices What has made the threat of cyberattacks much more prominent these days has been IT's growth in the last 20 years, notably cheaper and cheaper IoT devices. This has led to an explosion of network devices. IT spending has never really matched the pace of hardware and software growth Compounding this issue is that IT spending has never really matched the pace of hardware and software growth. Inevitably, leading to vulnerabilities, limited IT resources, and an increase in IoT devices get more attention from would-be hackers. Bridging the cybersecurity gap In the author’s view, this is the main reason why the cybersecurity gap is growing. This is because it inevitably boils down to counter-strike versus counter-strike. IT teams plug holes, and hackers find new ones, that is never going to stop. The companies must continue fighting cyber threats by developing new ways of protecting through in-house testing, security best practice sources, and both market and customer leads. End-user awareness One of the key battlegrounds here is the education of end-users. This is an area where the battle is being won at present, in the author’s opinion. End-users awareness of cybersecurity is increasing. It is crucial to educate end-users on what IoT devices are available, how they are configured, how to enable it effectively, and critically, how to use it correctly and safely. Physical security network A valuable product that tackles cybersecurity is, of course, Razberi Monitor™, which is new to ComNet’s portfolio.

Will Airport Security’s Pandemic Measures Lead To Permanent Changes?
Will Airport Security’s Pandemic Measures Lead To Permanent Changes?

Travel volumes at airports have been increasing of late, although still below the 2.5 million or so passengers the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screened every day, on average, before the pandemic. As passengers return, they will notice the airport security experience has changed during the pandemic – and many of the changes are likely to continue even longer. Need for touchless technology The lowest U.S. air travel volume in history was recorded last April, with approximately 87,500 passengers. As passenger traffic plummeted, the aviation community sought to explore the potential of new technologies to make security checkpoints more contactless and flexible when the traffic numbers return. The pandemic has seen an increase in touchless technology deployed in the screening area. Used for cabin baggage screening, Computed Tomography (CT) produces high-quality, 3-D images to enable a more thorough analysis of a bag’s contents. Imaging Technology Millimeter-wave body scanners began replacing metal detectors globally as a primary screening method Enhanced Advanced Imaging Technology (eAIT), which uses non-ionizing radio-frequency energy in the millimeter spectrum, safely screens passengers without physical contact for threats such as weapons and explosives, which may be hidden under a passenger’s clothing. Millimeter-wave body scanners began replacing metal detectors globally as a primary screening method.  AI algorithms Other innovations include an automatic screening lane, centralized image processing, and artificial intelligence (AI). Looking ahead, AI algorithms have the ability to clear most passengers and bags automatically, making the process smoother and freeing up staff to focus only on alarms. The pandemic’s need for contactless screening may accelerate the adoption of AI.   CAT machine Credential Authentication Technology (CAT) machines automatically verify identification documents presented by passengers during the screening process. The TSA continues to accept expired Driver’s Licenses and state-issued IDs for up to a year after expiration, based on the premise that license renewals may be delayed and/or more difficult during the pandemic. The REAL ID enforcement deadline was extended to Oct. 1, 2021.  Health precautions Checkpoint health precautions have been a part of the airport screening experience since early in the pandemic. Last summer, the TSA announced the “Stay Healthy. Stay Secure” campaign, which included requirements such as social distancing among travelers, ID verification without physical contact, plastic shielding installed at various locations, and increased cleaning and disinfecting. In January 2021, President Biden signed an Executive Order requiring travelers to wear face masks when in airports and other transportation facilities (to remain in effect until May 11). Checkpoint screening Clear is a privately owned company that provides expedited security that uses biometrics either a person’s eyes or face to speed along the process of getting people through checkpoints. TSA officers wear masks and gloves at checkpoints and may also wear eye protection or clear plastic face shields. The limits on allowable liquids a passenger may take on board were broadened to include a hand sanitizer container of up to 12 ounces, one per passenger in a carry-on bag. a paradigm shift Just as aviation security changed after 9/11, the COVID-19 crisis is expected to lead to a paradigm shift to create a safer and more secure environment. Measures were implemented so that passengers, staff and other stakeholders could have continued assurance and confidence in airports amid and after the pandemic.
