I joined almost two thousand IT and Security professionals last week for the Gartner IAM event. It’s always valuable to spend some focused time at an industry conference. One theme that emerged is the adoption of IAM technologies like Privileged Access Management is directly related to the user experience. While security features and addressing specific use cases is the top concern, program success also includes keeping privileged users productive. As one CISO stated, “My KPI is the number of complaints I get.”
This could explain why Bomgar koozies were a popular giveaway on the exhibit floor. Emblazoned with the tagline “I drink because your password is password,” attendees could totally relate to this concept.
It’s human nature - people will default to simple, easy to use passwords because they are busy doing their jobs and don’t want to have slow down to remember or track down the complex passwords that are more secure. With Bomgar Vault, privileged users can ditch the sticky notes and spreadsheets forever.
