A Zero Trust Approach to Eliminating Password Spreadsheets
Forrester estimates that at least 80% of security breaches involve privileged credentials1. A recent Centrify survey of 1,000 IT decision makers places that number at 74%, and shows that:
- 52% do not have a password vault
- 65% are still sharing root or privileged access to systems and data at least somewhat often
- 21% have not implemented Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for privileged admin access
- 63% cannot turn off privileged access for an employee within a day
Something needs to change!
While Zero Trust is continuing to gain attention, many are just beginning to explore the concept and taking their first steps to implement a Zero Trust approach. One roadblock to implementation: knowing where to start.
