Password Security Should Be A Top Business Priority
In the wake of increased data breaches, many businesses are re-evaluating their security policies, especially when it comes to how employees are accessing their cloud-based sites and services.
Traditionally, IT teams secured employee devices and tools using VPNs and company-owned hardware. Now, the rise of cloud apps and mobile devices mean employees work from anywhere and use varied networks to access company data.
With at least 4.2 billion credentials leaked in 2016 alone, it’s unfortunately very likely that an employee’s passwords, work or personal, have been revealed to hackers. This gives would-be hackers an easy way to try to gain access to corporate systems.
IT leaders need to take action now to protect against these threats. Effectively solving the password security problem means finding the right solution.
