Whitepaper

Securing the Identity Perimeter with Defense in Depth

Why organizations are still vulnerable to identity risk despite investment in IAM solutions

Recent research from ESG explored how organizations are spending significant time and money on IAM solutions such as Privileged Access Management (PAM), yet they still remain vulnerable to attack. Identities with privileged access represent significant risk to any organization; financial and other motives are so strong that nearly half (45%) of organizations have been breached by an identity-related attack. As a result, identity security will capture more of the cybersecurity budget with 84% of organizations planning to increase investment in IAM solutions in the next 12 months.
