Protecting your users and applications has never been more important.
2020 has seen an unfathomable shift in how businesses are operating, employees are working, and cloud / on-premise applications are being accessed.
So how are users connecting to applications?
Bill Gates famously stated in 2004 that the end of passwords was near but here we are 16 years later, and it doesn’t look as though the traditional password is going away any time soon.
A study has shown that 59% of 2000 people surveyed across UK, Germany United States and France use the same password across all their personal and work accounts and that 81% of all hacking-related breaches are caused by compromised passwords.
Securing applications & employees
With so many people using the same password across multiple applications it is only a matter of time before a password becomes compromised. Check out the table below for sizeable breaches in the last several years.
Traditionally applications would be secured through a token-based 2FA solution such an RSA SecurID and while these have on the whole worked well for large enterprise organisations the complexity and financial cost of traditional 2FA have meant that this is not a viable option for small to mid-size organisations.
Who wants to be carrying a separate piece of hardware around with them everywhere they go to be able to access the applications they need?
