Last year, 63% of data breaches involved compromised identities. This year, it’s up to 81%. As the world settles into the “new normal” of mobile, cloud and other nontraditional access points for applications and other resources, the problem of identity-related attacks isn’t going anywhere; to the contrary, it’s getting bigger. We can’t promise those numbers will be better next year, but we can definitely share some insights into what’s behind this trend and what you can do to protect against identity-related breaches in your organization.
Blind Spots: You Can’t Manage What You Can’t See
The good news is we can eliminate these blind spots. With a new approach to authentication that focuses on identity assurance, security teams can regain visibility into the access environment to pick up on threats wherever they occur and respond to them instantly.
Intelligence-Driven Identity Assurance: Seeing Users for Who They Are
To eliminate access blind spots, you need an intelligence-driven identity assurance solution that centralizes control and visibility, provides risk and context awareness, and leverages risk analytics to accurately assess access risk.
RSA SecurID® Access: Delivering Identity Assurance
To ensure that protecting against identity attacks won’t burden everyday users, RSA SecurID Access is also built for user-friendly, frictionless access. When step-up authentication is warranted, for example, the solution offers users plenty of convenient authenticator options from mobile push notification to hard and soft tokens to biometrics.
