Forrester estimates that 80% of security breaches involve privileged credentials.1
In December 2016, Centrify commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate identity and access management (IAM) practices and technology among large enterprises. Their report found that:
- Two-thirds of organizations have experienced a breach in the last two years.
- Increased adoption of IAM best practices correlates to a reduced likelihood of an organization experiencing a breach.
- Mature organizations realize higher end-user productivity, improved transparency, and reduced findings from compliance audits.
- Companies that experience fewer breaches gravitate towards an integrated platform solution for IAM technology.
This study serves as a practical guide on how enterprise companies can stop breaches in this new “threatscape” and save an average of $5 million.
