Four out of five data breaches can be connected to digital identity. That’s 80%. It’s a massive statistic, shining light on just how often cyber-attackers target you and your team. The way to combat it is with airtight identity and access management (IAM)—the foundation of your security.
Controlling who gets access to your data is the key to keeping all others out. Identity and access management provides a framework for monitoring and dictating who can access your sensitive information and systems. Unfortunately, many companies get a false sense of security from the cloud, believing that their data in the cloud is more secure. Others treat IAM as an afterthought and attempt to retrofit access management solutions after the fact.
