Forrester estimates that 80% of security breaches involve privileged credentials.

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 organisations have experienced a breach in the last two years.
  • Increased adoption of IAM best practices correlates to a reduced likelihood of an organisation experiencing a breach.
  • Mature organisations realise 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.
