The new reality

A case for stronger identity security

Companies can build the fiercest firewalls. They can apply every tool imaginable to ensure the endpoint is secure. They can fortify the SOC and upgrade their SIEM.

Yet regardless of whatever other security measures they take, without a proper focus on identity security, there is no real security at all.

In the new digital ecosystem, identity goes far beyond the archaic username and password to include millions of moving parts that must be continuously managed to be secured. Modern identities also include relationships to mobile devices, access points, behavior patterns, policies, and many more analyzable attributes. With today’s digital transformations, the potential for security breaches has increased exponentially.

More than 81%

81 percent

More than 81% of today’s breaches are related to sub-optimal identity security. And, the attacks are becoming ever more costly with billions in losses, months to years to remedy, and most importantly, the irreparable harm that occurs to the credibility of the business. In short, organizations without continuous identity security are operating in a world where trust has all but disappeared.

Loss of trust

The loss of trust is understandable. In a world where 2.3 billion credentials are compromised each year, it is no longer effective or efficient to limit identity security to a single checkpoint at the front door. Unfortunately, even if multiple layers of security – such as two-factor authentication – are employed, bad actors still can get through. To stay ahead of attacks a new approach is needed to eliminate identity-related breaches by ensuring that identity security is always on and active.
